Month that was, Feb 2018

February. My all-time favored month. I wish I had the same feeling for the relaxation of the months too due to the fact by hook or by crook all proper things occur throughout this month. Let me show you the nice of Feb 2018 in my life in Yanbu!

Yanbu Lake Park

Our Fridays usually start with an early morning drive. Ever since we lost Ragee, we made a tradition to visit her grave every Friday morning. Just to spend some time in nature. This place is near the Sharm Entertainment location. While coming back, I suggested that we need to find the Yanbu Lake Park that I have been hearing a lot. So that was indeed a long drive from there to the Royal Commission's Lake Park. When we drove through and parked the car, I was too quick to judge, "this is it? this is the park they all said is amazing?" I know I hate myself for being quick to judge. It was everything and more I wanted in this not so happening city.

This beautiful spot in #Yanbu #royalcommission is in reality a man-made lake that comprises a vast area of green lawn, fully grown big trees and play area! Perfect for family picnics with kids. This has been there for years but only recently we got there. The saying Muttathe Mullakku Manamilla is so apt! (Whats in our neighbourhood is not valued) πŸ˜¬πŸ˜†This lake is our current favourite weekend morning stroll spot. #yanbulakepark #picnicspot #yanbuhighlights This place reminds me so much of Kerala! Don’t you think?

The Lake worm became on for the following weekend too. We had our first ever "picnic".

Throwback to weekend #breakfastinthepark at #yanbulakepark. We picked food from our favourite Yemeni takeaway restaurant. A big #malawah bread, #shakshouka #galaba and #kibdeh πŸ˜‹ Technically our first #picnic which F happily agreed to do. #couplegoals πŸ˜‚ yay! I got to use that hashtag πŸ€ͺ #lifeinyanbu #yanbuhighlights

I was in the "truffles and balls making phase" and these energy bites were the best and satiating snack that I used to have for breakfast. No sugar. No oil. No flour. Pure #energyballs loaded with nutritiously tasty ingredients that keep you satiated. #naturallysweet and filling! 😍Trust me. Some lazy days, I just have two of these #energybombs and I am good until lunch...

Beetroot Chicken

When Shabina from Shabosphere shares a recipe it gets tried instantly by most of her followers. When she shared the beetroot chicken, I knew I will try it. And I did. Twice. There is no hard and fast rule to the recipe but the fact it has beetroot could not be overlooked!

When beets is in the menu, I get a frown face. 😣 No matter what I make of it. I am sure its true for many families out there. But when I saw this #beetrootchicken of @shabosphere πŸ˜‹I went and picked couple of beets and made with #chickenbreast 🀀 Never before have I seen Mr. F relish beet so much!!! Or is it the chicken? ~ Better half of a #meatatarian

Alio e Olio again!

There is not a single weekend where I have cooked all three meals. It is either breakfast, or brunch or just lunch and oats for dinner.

The most beautiful element that happened at some point of my birthday week. I were praying for this present day see you later and in the end, it came about. Our first Umrah!

“Indeed, as-Safa and al-Marwah are among the symbols of Allah.” Surah 2:158 #alhamdulillah #bucketlisttickedoff So I am back. We had a soul satisfying experience for three days at Makkah and this was my first #umrah. I was in two minds of sharing this here because I don’t share everything on social media. Even though I live just a drive away from Makkah, and here since three years, I was not destined to go until now. Every time we plan, it never worked through and it really bothered me a lot. Especially when I get asked by random people “how many umrahs you did?” Then I turned to Him and made dua and waited... #subhanallah
