Alhamdulillah, the first day of Ramadhan went by without any glitch.
It was made easier by the fact that we didn’t go out anywhere, just vegetating at home not doing any physical labour.
The girls spent most of the day in their bedrooms, reading, playing and watching dvds.
I guess that’s why no one felt thirsty nor that hungry.
Once school starts this Tuesday, sure melepek aje budak2 tu after school.
I normally will send letters to their teachers explaining about the fasting month so the girls can be excused from having to do sports and morning fitness (which they don’t mind missing at all, hehehe).
Our Sahur food as usual cuma medjool kurma, hot milo for the girls and hot coffee for us, water and multigrain toasts or weetbix.
The Other Half will usually have his toasts with butter and honey, Miss 13 will have hers with nutella and Miss 8 pulak depending on what she felt like that morning.
I will have my toast with whatever that’s on the table.
So far, throughout the years, we’ve never had hot meals at Sahur time because no one could stomach big heavy meals at that time of the morning.
So, senang lah kerja I di pagi2 hari kan, no need to pening2 fikir what to cook, hehehe.
Semalam, I still tak pening lagi nak fikir what to make as our Iftar kuih sebab baru aje the first day kan .
I made keria balls or keria orang malas or sweet potato balls.
I made kecik2 aje so you can pop the whole thing in your mouth.
We had the keria with kurma and fresh fruits.
And then for dinner, I made bread to be eaten with pasta and seafood ‘stew’.
Just before baking, I brushed the top of the loaf with water and then sprinkled plain flour on it. Nampak lah gaya rustic sikit kan .
Freshly baked bread is always well received in this house, hehehe.
It’s basically creamy seafood pasta sauce but less tomato paste, tu yg nampak pale aje.
Tonite, they have asked for creamy garlic mashed potato with gravy and sausages.
Kuih still under consideration, hehehe…..
