See how this iReporter's family breaks its Ramadan fast
Say whatever you want about Muslims they do Know how to make sweets. I would like to see some original,Indian cuisine here. Not the chick tikka but real stuff they make in households. Each state in india have their own cuisine. You can spend so much time there learning stuff
I had some middle eastern cuisine while in Portland a few years ago. It was DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!! Thank You CNN for upping the likelihood that I will FAIL on my diet this week, lol.
In our typical American family, Christmas is a wonderful time of good will and great food. Ramadan is very similar in these regards. I used to work for a company here in the US that had many Muslim engineers, and come sunset during Ramadan the smell of ME foods would start wafting from every break room. Poke your head in any of these and you are likely to be invited to join in on the feast! Plus, according to Muslim tradition, good deeds performed during Ramadan are rewarded in the afterlife. Although not required by the Bible, our society has a "be kind" attitude during the Christmas holidays as well. (Of course, like the Muslim tradition, we are supposed to be that way all of the time, but we actually are more that way during the holidays.) Since Ramadan "floats" along with the lunar calendar, it is moving toward the long days/short nights part of the year, which makes it a bit more uncomfortable to get through the day without eating, hence when the feedbag comes out at sunset, the sense of pleasure associated with the evening meal is even greater. The feelings of thankfulness and wanting to share the joy are enhanced all the more. Happy Ramadan to all Muslims everywhere!
Well thank you and happy holidays to you too. It is refreshing to see some sensible non-Muslim bashing comments every now and then. The "other" comments, however , make me feel sorry for the petty state of ignorance that we have descended to.
This is true..
Take it from me. Never consider moslems as a friend. They play with you until they get what they want. Be carefull.
Cut all food supplies to them and feed them pork chops.
If thats the only food thats available, then muslims will eat it. Whats your point? Oh thats right. You dont have one coz your a bigoted moron with an IQ of 5. Do us a favor and jump off a bridge. You give normal intelligent Americans a bad name.
I second that. Well said!
Muslims can look forward to the day when their holy month is entirely commercialized, like the way Christmas & Easter have become. If marshmallow Peeps can be made without using pork gelatin, Muslims will soon be munching on sugary-coated shapes of the Islamic Star & Crescent! Delicious and halal!
Ramadan has been commercialized in countries like the UAE for a long time. It just keeps getting crazier. This it nothing new.
I know. I've seen Easter stuff put out in stores just as soon as Valentine's Day season ends. Freakin' crazy. Wake up America.
those don't look very good.
Gotcha! Thanks, Richard!
Not that I wouldn't want to play, but I wasn't addressing anyone in the comments section. I was grumbling about CNN and the media in general suddenly trying to mainstream Islam. That's it. You can back out to the playground!
And have fun!
Thank You Big Bob-Just trying to throw some levity at the Media since it is a slow newsday. Did Not mean to offend You. Always have fun on the playground.
Need I explain myself, or is this just play-time?
O.K. Big Bob-Recess is over and you now have the floor!
OH!! You just got SHOOLED, SON! Pwnage. X)
Sorry,Rick was the only one who brought his purse. Maybe a little Nutella would suffice?
And some SPAM
Kat-I believe Big Bob has his panties in a twist concerning Pork-Bellies. Please send him a Bud-Lite on my tab.Thank You!
Where's the lunch time poll? Sitting here waiting for it. :)
Kat and Sarah are out to lunch right now with Rick Sanchez! Please leave a message.
Well, they better bring me something if that's the case. And I don't want a smashed up roll they stuffed in a purse.
Boy, Muslims sure are hot right now. Keep on pandering, you brain-dead idiots!
Not really sure how talking about foodways from around the world is "pandering." It's what we do on Eatocracy. Just because you, yourself, Bob may or may not agree with a group's politics doesn't mean they cease to exist.
If someone, anyone, eats - we're curious about it.
You are so ignorant. Why can't you be respectful as you expect others to be of you and your beliefs.
LMAO ... Seems like Big Bob has a small brain!
pork on sale, special ramadan dishes,lmao
Disgusting-But I Like it,LMAO!
So that's how C4 is made.
I sure hope KAT had a good weekend-Vitto called me back and the contract has been buried.
