(not the actual food I made but close to it!)
Assalam alaikum & Peace to all
Well so here it is Ramadan 2008 has started! I pray that all of our fasts are
accepted and that we will have the strength to continue with
these thirty days!
So, how was my first day? Well I can tell you that it was very difficult
and I had a massive headache right before breaking fast and for most
of the night afterwards.
Hubby and I had gone out earlier in the afternoon to a park to just walk
around and relax, we ended up being there for over two hours.
Got back home and I started to cook - yeah big surprise!
I made a veggie-bean soup, some small pastry type thing filled with
potatoes and cheese and the final piece was a whole roast chicken.
I also cut up some fruit for a fruit salad that we ate late in the night.
At around 7:15 I was really starting to 'suffer' with the headache but
I managed to finish the first Juz of the Quran -mashallah - every time
I started to read it my headache would feel a bit better.
Finally the time came to break our fast - which we did with dates and water.
I then served out the soup and we enjoyed the time together.
However after I ate the soup my stomach complained severely,
somehow the food was not sitting well with me and made it turn over
and over again, but thank God all the food stayed where it was
supposed to! So then after eating the soup we prayed Maghrib, which
was nice and continued to eat the rest of our dinner.
After eating for a bit we sat down and watched a bit of TV and before
we noticed it was time for Isha prayer, so we did that as well.
Before we knew it the time was already past 10:00 and we were feeling very
sleepy and tired. So I prepared our place setting for Sahur and went to sleep.
We woke up and had a light meal, of the pastry filled with potatoes and cheese,
boiled eggs, tomatoes, cucumbers and some more fruit and of course
lots of water!
So that takes me until today (day 2) I will Inshallah post how today goes!!
Ps. I had a comment from Houda that she was looking for a
