    I just wanted to let anyone who was interested that Ramadan has begun. Ramadan is such a busy time for women especially, because we seem to be so busy with cooking, grocery shopping or washing dishes icon_lol.gif Although that isnt the true essence of Ramadan. Ramadan is very holy month for muslims, in which we should try to read the Quran from beginning to end, and especially during this month we should give to the needy, and try to be patient among other important aspects of our faith. Its a time to get closer to the Almighty.Its a very special spiritual time indeed.Thanks for lending your ear.

    Thanks for sharing Fifi!

    I remember being in France and living in a university residence with a large Muslim population and Ramadan was wonderful for us, if a little noisy icon_wink.gif

    It was like a party every night, with all the guys crowded into the kitchen cooking these elaborate meals, which they were often kind enough to share with us. But for the non-Muslims it was pretty hard to get any sleep as the parties went long into the morning!

    Are there any special recipes you cook during this time?

    icon_biggrin.gif Yes, I am very conscious of Ramadan although not involved in it, as we have a large Moslem population in South Africa. Thanks for talking about it: I really believe sharing beliefs and cultural habits enrich us all. Allah-iakhbar .... But I'm sure that is not the correct spelling. icon_redface.gif

    Ramadan is different experience in every part of the world. For us here...we dont party...were to knocked out after eating our meal lol...we usually just sit back with a good dessert and coffee or tea. Then in a bit its off to bed to sleep. Yes there are certain things we usually will eat when its ramadan especially desserts...My husband is middle eastern so we pretty much stick to very traditional recipes here such as: maqloobah(called upside down) bamia(okrah stew) fasooliah baidah(white bean stew) dowali(stuffed grape leaves) koosah(stuffed squash/zucchini) e.t.c. Soup is very important to us also during this month...we usually start off with something easy on the stomach.. I usually make cream of something soup almost every night. I make serve tradtional sweets such as Katiyef..Which consist of a thin pancake like shell and stuff it with either nuts or cheese. Smoothered in a thick syrup. I also bake alot during this month. I love cakes.
