As a number of people truly imbibe the spirit of generosity in the Holy Month of Ramadan, there are a number of companies who share free Iftar and Suhoor packed meals to their employees, whether Muslim or not, who work during the odd hours of 24-hour operations. The Husband is luckily employed by one of those generous companies. Hence, I also get to enjoy the fruits of the free Iftar and Suhoor meals. Hehehe!
Why so? Doesn’t The Husband get to enjoy and finish the free meals?
Well, the meals are quite hefty. Imagine: 2-3 pieces of dates, 3-4 Arabic bread rounds, 3 pieces of Arabic pastries like kibbeh, spiced ground meat encased in a crunchy bulgur wheat mini football, a bowl of salad and / or a small plate of hummus, a humongous plate of rice and grilled meats like kebab or stews and a small tetrapack of fruit juice. That was a meal for one person. So obviously, The Husband and I had quite a pile of leftovers (literally), most of which were the rounds of Arabic bread.
The pile of Arabic bread was too tall that it practically begged the questions: What about me? What will you do with me? Will you just throw me away?
