So we feasted. We added a glass of juice and finished the night with fruit or ice cream.
But as days went on my enthusiasm started to falter. It wasn't the hunger that was my problem is was mainly the lack of caffeine.. so I cooked some days and then days came were I went back to simpler meals and even leftovers camouflaged as new.
By the time we were into week three and especially week four, the finish line was within reach but the lack of sleep was catching up with us and we were just tired. In case you are wondering how sleep has anything to do with fasting.. well. We would wake up at 4am to have something for breakfast.. around 5am we would get up again for morning prayers.. and then the cherry on the sundae was that D would wake up around 6am.
By the time that last few days rolled around food, especially cooking food was the last thing on my mind.. but we enjoyed the yummy food while it lasted.
We devoured stuffed chicken breasts and corn, roasted vegetable rice and cheese stuffed jalapenos, chili burger and oven baked steak fries, grilled chicken and vegetables, stacked roasted vegetable enchiladas and a veggie pizza.
