Ramadan Revelations: Day Six

VERY EASY, Let’s solve this with ‘Muslimatics’

Read 4 pages of the Qur’an after every salah

5 prayers x 4 pages = 20 pages

20 pages = 1 juz

1 juz x 30= The Entire Qur’an

So many Muslims have passed away since last month, even just yesterday. So many people have not made it to Ramadan this year. Last year was their very last Ramadan. Will you make it through this Ramadan? Will this be your last Ramadan?

Aim to strive this Ramadan. With a very small amount of effort, such as just making a small intention or adding a few extra acts of worship, we pray that Allah will help our hearts soften and honor us with making it easy to turn to Him and open up to Him.

NOTE: You can add Tahajjud Salah as a bonus and read some Qur’an after that too.

Homemade Cheese, Onion, and Bacon Pizza

We eat a lot of pizza, and this is a cheaper, more interactive way to ameliorate that craving.

-Bought frozen mini pizza crusts (about six inches in diameter) from Carrefour. Let defrost!

-Heat ½ cup of butter and tablespoon of powdered garlic in pot.

-Heat thawed crusts in oven for five minutes

-Take pizza crusts out and pour butter/garlic mixture over crust.

-In a pot, heat one jar of Heinz tomato paste, half a jar’s worth of water, ¼ cup flour, 2 tablespoons of garlic powder, ¼ cup of butter, salt, pepper and a dash of curry.

-Spread sauce over pizza crusts (with butter/garlic base)

-Add shredded cheese.

-Add strips of bacon broken into little pieces! (This is something relatively new to us here in Cairo. We found a little French import store that sells alcohol and pork products. The first time I bought bacon, I ended up ruining it by way overcooking it. This time, I accidentally bought “Canadian Bacon,” which as a recently swayed vegetarian (I went eight years without eating meat, and two months after living in Cairo, I eat chicken and apparently bacon) I am still new to meat life. I did not realize that Canadian bacon is not really bacon, but just ham strips. This worked though once added onto the pizza and tasted delicious.) 

-Add cooked onion. I usually sauté chopped onion for about five minutes, adding in a little olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic and curry.

-Add more shredded cheese

-Pour a bit of remaining butter/garlic mixture on top

-Bake for 20 minutes

-Cut into fourths and enjoy this delicious homemade pizza creation! (and save some money by not ordering in Dominos for the second time in a week….)
