My Umrah Memories - 2009 + 2010 + 2011!

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


As you may have gathered through yesterday's post, we are heading off for Umrah pretty soon. In the past few days, I have been looking through old photos from previous trips and so thought I would share some of my favourites with you. Settle in, grab a cup of tea and let's begin!

I have been waiting to write this post for what seems like forever. as you may have gathered from the title, insha Allah, we are heading off for Umrah pretty soon. this trip has been in the planning since last year so we're all pretty excited. it does mean though that things will be very quiet on the blog for a few weeks.

The best snacky lunch / dinner!
Seriously though, chicken on nachos is one of the quickest but most satisfying meals ever.

how are you? can you believe that this time last week it was snowing here and now it's a much milder 12C?! what are you guys eating today? we are finally doing the Sunday thing and having a roast dinner. actually, it's leftover from yesterday but still! I feel like we always have a roast on any other day but a Sunday. one last thing, here is a Hadith that I read recently and loved:
The Prophet Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
The best of you is the one who brings the most benefit to others.

Crispy Onion Bhajis.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Are you a fan of all things crispy, deeply savoury and fried?
If so, you have got to make these onion bhajis as soon as is humanly possible. I still cannot believe that it took us so long to try them out!

Chicken Fajitas with Homemade Tortillas + Salsa.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

I am so excited to share this recipe with you guys.

I'm sure you have all eaten chicken fajitas at some point or other. And like me, they probably came from a box.

how are you all? is it snowing where you are because it is here, and I am so happy! I love the snow - it's so nice to look at and unlike hammering rain, is really peaceful. I have started with a quote about Umar (ra) because I am currently reading this book and because of it, have learnt so much more about the second khalifa of Islam than I knew before. I particularly like how even before Islam, he was one of the wisest and most respected men in Makkah. That fact alone makes more sense when you read the following saying of the Prophet (saw).

Mocha Marble Cake with Coffee Buttercream.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

This cake first made an appearance on Eid-al-Adha last year.
It was a big success and I knew I had to bake it again for the blog. This time though, I covered and filled the entire thing in a coffee buttercream.

Keema Curry with Green Beans + Jalapenos.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

It's just the thing for a frosty (maybe even snowy?!!) January night.

Especially if you serve it with hot, buttered rotis or soft naan.
