We had guests on Saturday so there was quite a feast for iftar. Thankfully, I prepared many of the savouries before the flu found me so it was mainly a matter of frying or baking savouries and making some pancakes.
I laid the table early on Saturday so that there wouldn’t be a mad scramble to get this done before the guests arrived. I mixed and matched 2 different crockery sets (used 6 from each batch). I think it turned out nicely. What do you think?
The savouries included mince and cheese samoosas, steak pies, sausage rolls, crab springrolls, chicken cutlets and vienna pizzas. One of my friends also brought along a plate of savouries and my aunt brought daljties.
For something sweet we had fruit platters, pancakes, bollas, koeksisters (both of which were made before Saturday and frozen and just syruped before we needed them on the table), peppermint pudding that another friend brought and pumpkin fritters that my aunt made.
My mom made a big pot of veg soup that morning. She also made some lovely braised, saucy chops and sausage (I can’t find a pic for this but it was really yummy – I had leftovers of this on Sunday). The sides for this were baby garlic potatoes, coleslaw, green salad (which precisely 3 people ate; why don’t people want to eat salad?) and garlic bread.
Sunday was pretty much a repeat of Saturday. Was really thankful that I didn’t have to spend any time in the kitchen and I could rest and pray this flu away.
