Menu Monday: More Iftar Meals

August 15, 2011

For Muslims globally we are smack dab in the middle of Ramadan (the holy month of fasting). We have just over 2 weeks of fasting left. We are almost at the time when many Muslims get more serious for the last 10 days of Ramadan when  many pray longer, harder, read more. So to be able to do this you need a wee bit of fuel. Fuel comes from the iftar meal and the suhour mea. The Iftar is eaten just after sunset after you have broken the fast and suhour is eaten just before the morning prayer. So what are we eating here?

Suhour is usually 2 eggs, some toast, some tea, some water and a piece of fruit.

My iftar meal plan for this week includes these meals:

Monday–we are doing breakfast for dinner and making cornbread muffins, eggs, chicken bacon, and fruit( my daughter requested this)

Tuesday-Chicken Balti, rice, brocoli

Wednesday-Easy Baked Pasta

Thursday-Quick Jambalaya ( yes there is sausage in this recipe, we use a halal chicken sausage)

Friday- Lemon Garlic Chicken, mashed potatoes, carrots

Saturday- Will be eating at the masjid.

Sunday- Will be eating at the masjid.

What will you be cooking at your house this week? Have a recipe you care to share? I am off to check out the recipes shared on Org Junkie and the link up there.
