One day at a time
Today’s post is a quick update on a few things. The holy month of Ramadan started a few days ago and I’ve been reading tweets and Facebook messages from all of my Muslim friends on how challenging it has been for them to fast. For those familiar, Muslims across the world abstain from food and drink from sunrise to sunset, for 30 days during this month. It is a month of prayer, resilience, patience, and for many, a way to detoxify the body.
Considering it is Summer here in North America, the gap between sunrise and sunset can be almost 15 hours for most of us here. My thoughts and prayers are with you all!
For those of you fasting, please do check out my Ramadan recipe series to get ideas on what to make for Iftaar. I hope to make a few more dishes over the next few weeks and add to the list.
In other news, I will be talking once again on the Minneapolis Farmers Market Fresh & Local radio show this Saturday at 8am on AM950. We will be talking about Indian food, using local ingredients, and I will also do an Indian spin on the veggie of the day with hosts Susan Berkson and Bonnie Dehn of Dehn’s Garden. I’d love it if you could tune in! If you can’t, I will be posting a recording of the show soon. Listen in to the last show to get a taste of what we’ll talk about.
Until next week, adios and have a great weekend!
