Food Post

Finally a food blog post! I haven't done one in a while now (another would be an outfit post, yikes!). Ever since arriving in Glasgow, we were stuck eating out until we moved into our own place. Our host family was extremely gracious and wanted to cook for us but unfortunately husband is a non-rice and non-spicy food type of eater. We didn't want to burden our host so we ate out like little monsters. But once we moved in to our own place, we became even bigger food monsters (I wanted to say 'piggies' but since it's Ramadhan and all let's be a bit more respectful shall we?)!

So, I basically stuffed my face with strawberries, jaffa cake (best thing in the world, I tell you!) and tea with ginger biscuits before fasting month began. These little things were my *cough* desserts! And the strawberries are so fat and juicy! I still have one box, sitting quietly in the fridge. Just waiting for it's demise! Heeeee!


And then when Ramadhan started, husband decided it was time to eat our first baby chicken (a.k.a. spring chicken). It was delicious (I sound like a real carnivore)! I only have before photos of the 'before' chicken but I can tell you that it was delicious! So juicy and tender; God, I'm salivating right now just thinking about it! Oh oh oh...the potatoes were also delicious. Yuuuuummmmmmmmm!


Day 2 of Ramadhan we got all Desi-d up and had a proper Indian meal; with homemade chapati and the works! Although I did have some miscommunication with the atta flour and all but it turned out edible at the end, so it's all good. *Phew* Eh eh...last picture, is chicken tikka masala. Apparently a staple British Indian dish. What do I know, I'm from Malaysia and our staple dish is nasi lemak. *rolls eyes*


Day 3 of Ramadhan and it's homemade salsa and Chicken Quesadillas. I experimented a bit with the chicken by marinating the mince meat in Nando's Lemon and Herb marinade, with extra lemon juice and some cayenne pepper. It was mui delicioso! I still have some leftover mince meat and that is gona be sahur for me, boys and girls.


I'm not too sure of what exactly I'm gona be cooking for Day 4, because I am freakishly tired right now. Who knew that fasting 20 hours can be so tiring? I knew a bunch of people are gona be like 'Duu'uuuuh' to me but I really havent been doing any heavy work though. I just stay at home, pray, sleep, surf the net, and cook. So, why am I still yawning non-stop right now??

Anyways, I need to go. It's time to prepare sahur for both husband and I. And then I've got a Skype date with Soul Sister. Hope it works out this time. Hmmmmmmmm.

Goodnight Scotland, Good morning Malaysia

I am not going to complain about fasting 16 hours in such terrible weather here in Cairo!

Have a blessed Ramadan, Farah!
