I know, I know! I’m almost an entire week late to the game, but it won’t stop me from exuberating the month I love most in the whole year. Ramadhan. Hearing the name of the month alone makes me feel so gleeful, it’s a month to trim back everything and look at the details, at the small things, at the minute changes that we undergo, the spiritual and mental reconnection that we owe ourselves. The month of Blessings has always held a special place in my heart, not just because of how it makes me feel (like a solar panel consistently receiving rays) but also because I feel the most like myself this time of year. Fasting, contrary to popular belief, allows me to fine tune and focus on intricacies, I am more energised (again, contrary to popular belief) than ever before, and now is even more proof of that, with managing full time work, cooking (which I love beyond doubt), household chores (not so fond of) and of course reciting and praying as much as I can possibly challenge myself too. And yes, whilst I may have felt sleepy towards the end of the day…I blame the melatonin, I am still charged and ready to go, and for that I am thankful to my Lord.
So you’re probably wondering…where’s all the food then? Well, I’ll get there! Patience is a sweet reward…or in my case a savoury one, since sweets aren’t my most favoured! But I will say one thing, Air fryer (two words, but one thing!). I am the most excited with this gadget! I won’t lie, a few years ago when these were ridiculously expensively, I had dismissed these as a fad, but boy am I glad to have gotten this present from my brothers! It’s the best timing too with Ramadhan and the mutual love of samosas that my husband (still weird saying that!) and I share!! Only a little bit of fiddling around to find the ideal setting and voila…perfectly crisp and golden samosas with minimal oil (only some sprayed on sunflower oil)!
I’ll post a picture of the some of the food I’ve tried so far in another post, but trust me on this one, a healthy way to eat the foods you love is the best present! And I will be using my Tower air fryer all year round! Quick and easy in every way possible, samosas won’t stand around for too long hahahahaha
NQ out. Blessed fasting everyone! And be healthy!
PS. Having said that…I’m waiting for my ‘The Cake Campaign‘ cake to arrive tomorrow and my Palestinian dates too! Can’t wait! Best thing is, it’s all for charity and you get a slice of the cake too…literally!
