August 2018: One Photo Everyday!

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

How are you guys? I hope you've had a good and relaxed August.
Mine has been filled with busy moments and quiet ones in equal measure. August was the month that we celebrated Eid Al-Adha which meant lots of food and family. It was also the last month of the Summer holidays and I managed to fit in a baking session with my nieces. We made homemade ice cream sandwiches! Hope you've had a good one!

The most popular recipe posted in August:
Boneless Lamb Biryani - have you tried it yet?

Here's my August 2018:

August 1: Wednesday evening quick dinner in the making - a chickpea soup from this book. Had to stop halfway to go throw my neighbour his football back! 😐

August 2: dragged my ice cream out to churn this salted, malted cookie dough ice cream.

August 3: tried a chicken adobo but it didn't turn out as I'd hoped.

August 4: thank you to the NHS for always taking such good care of my Mother.

August 5: tried these baked honey hot sandwiches for Sunday lunch. The chicken was baked on wire racks in the oven instead of frying it. It was ok but a real pain to clean up afterwards.

August 6: my peach and orange sorbet ready to churn. The recipe is in this book!

August 7: snacking on yoghurt with a spiced berry salad. Recipe in this book!

August 8: putting all our garden chives to good use in a salad dressing.

August 9: you cannot beat a freshly made pulao.

August 10: loving these pickled peppers!

August 11: turning my pakoras into fritters. I shallow-fried these instead of the traditional deep-fry.

August 12: everyone's favourite little unicorn.

August 13: a classic Punjabi plate - pulao + tandoori chicken + kebab + shorba + green yoghurt chutney.

August 14: daal for lunch.

August 15: today you are two.

August 16: carrots ready to turn into kheer.

August 17: this curry was so good, we cooked it twice this month.

August 18: so many of you loved the idea of using this gadget in my boneless lamb biryani.

August 19: bounty from the garden.

August 20: crack pie ready to bake.

August 21: pre-Eid lunch.

August 22: chocolate pudding for Eid Al-Adha  day!

August 23: qurbani done!

August 24: baking day! We made homemade ice cream sandwiches.

August 25: tried out a Chinese recipe which didn't quite go to plan.

August 26: rainy Sunday afternoon baking. The recipe is in this book.

August 27: bank holiday dinner.

August 28: lunch hosted by my cousin.

August 29: autumn is coming.

August 30: all the Jammie Dodgers.

August 31: this pie was incredible.
