TWO IFTARS & TWO BIRTHDAYS

Dudu Iftar 1 TWO IFTARS & TWO BIRTHDAYS

So last week was a pretty busy week for us, which is all good when you are fasting, the day goes by much faster and easier when the schedule is full.  We started off the week by going to an If-tar dinner at my cousins house and we had a great time.

On Saturday, we had If-tar at my aunt Meleks house, as always her dishes are beyond delicious and leaves you wanting more. 

A side from the dinners, we celebrated the birthdays of my brother and cousin which fell on Ramadan.  They are both August babies of the same year only a week apart.
