Sample Ramadan Menu

Zeezy, Atinuke, and the 3 other people who emailed me concerning a Ramadan menu, here it is.

I’ve been wracking my brain o. The reason is this: whenever I join my best friend in breaking her fast, she always has more than 10 meals on the buffet. How do I beat that? Lol. After talking to her today, however, I realised that some meals are pretty much staples, and can be repeated everyday for convenience.

I’m going to give you guys a 7-day meal plan complete with the Nigerian Ramadan staples. You will find these recipes here and on Aunty Eya’s blog.

I hope I tried ooo. Pls let me know.

Hi, my name is Chidinma. I’ve been happily married for 4+ years (actually almost 6 years now), and my husband and I have been trying to have our own children for almost all the time we’ve been married, with no success…yet. We haven’t lost hope (far from it), and we believe it will happen very soon.
