Assalam alaikum & Peace to all
Ramadan day 6 has come and gone...mashallah it really does get a bit easier...it is still a trial and an effort but alhamduillah I have been able get through these 6 days...inshallah I can continue for the rest.
I know that this month is about reflection, prayer and readings...I have been struggling a little bit with all that. I just have to set my priorities and hopefully I will be able to do more of these things.
The other thing I have always struggled with was what to cook. Well this year I am using Google calendar and documents. I make up menus (full meals) and put them into each day on the calendar, so that each day I know what I am going to make - without having to wonder and think all day. I use the document section to make up grocery lists and ideas. Mashallah this way I have been able to stay on top of things.
So here are my menu ideas that I did so far (I'm posting it so that maybe someone gets some
