Did a massive fridge and freezer cleaning today and took out many things stored since a long time so as to do something useful or throw them away.
Result was a mix dried fruits,nuts, crushed biscuits,blueberries, oats all bound together with honey and molasses with a bit of cinnamon, cardamom and ginger. They’ll make a super snack during Ramadan specially at suhour time cause they’re full of nutrients and fiber which will help during fasting next day.
Another outcome was a plate of chickpeas with tahini sauce ( مسبحه) decorated with parsley and nuts.
Lunch was Shakshouka, no cooking till beginning of Ramadan, that’s my decision so far.
Boiled some chickpeas this morning, hummus is a good low carbohydrate high in protein dish so it makes a good appetizer or even a breakfast choice.This time I tried it with a piece of boiled sweet potato as my friend Mary advised one, really yummy and added smoothness to the hummus.
I also made the special salad as they call it in restaurants thee palmetto artichoke mushroom and baby corn salad with a creamy dressing of mustard,mayonnaise,lemon,balsamic,herbs and olive oil. A fancy dish for sure .
Main dish was chicken curry from yesterday.
