Now we are starting the third week of Ramadan, by this time of the month most of us got already satisfied with the traditional recipes and preparing ourselves to welcome the most important days of the month, the final 10 days.
Although Ramadan should not be a chance to stuff ourselves with food, have festive iconic food items helps bring joy to our hearts and relate our kids more to the traditions away from Muslim countries. Plus we need to eat anyways right?
Iftar usually starts with some dates and water, you can serve dates differently by making chocolate covered dates, stuffing them with nut butter or make date balls.
Tip of the week: This week we'll start skipping on soups and drinks. We'll have drink one day and the next day we'll make soup, when we reach the 5th day we'll skip both. If you must have drinks everyday you can make double or get some store bought juice, mango juice and lemonade are great. Also we'll be making some one pot/dish meals.
