Delicious Low Carb – Keto Friendly Chicken Bites - When Husband Treats Well Episode # 03

When Hashim decides to cook something undoubtedly it should be plain sailing and swift cooking. Becasue he thinks time is money? Nay! because he is lazy and lazy people are generally ingenious when it comes to finishing work in lesser duration of time. So he has this recipe that is not at all developed in a traditional bbq way, he has just tossed the chicken upside down, given few minutes to cook and presented this dish in just 10 minutes and believe me - the chicken was wonderfully moist and so succulent from inside with a pleasant taste of thick sauce from outside. Few are those days when he cooks, but when he does, he is my master chef of the kitchen who knows well how to deal with fitness counts.

As we all are locked down with our mains, it is really important to normalize things at home especially when there are special days. Celebrating each occasion during this current pandemic make us appreciate the detail of all the things we were missing. Food is that constitutive part in the celebration that simply adds a generous amount of happiness. As yesterday, it was my husband birthday - a thought of making him feel loved and amazing was all I needed. First and foremost because – I hold the word loss in my mouth, it feels full and heavy, all of a sudden our baby nanu died on 9th June 2020 leaving us all into a sphere of sadness, it took to grief. It is hard to lose a loved one, we spent our every moment of life with her – she was a companion knitted with immense love and care. To overcome our complicated grief, I decided to cook Hashim favorite cuisine on his birthday and celebrate his day in a simple way as possible. I have cooked all day long since early morning but with a heavy heart. As, whatever I was picking to prepare the meal some veg elements belonged to Nanu. It was difficult to decide the birthday special menu – hence I skipped burgers with french fries option as she was crazy for french fries. She used to hog 15-20 fries without any break. And maybe that’s why we have taken a pause from eating french fries for a while until we don’t find comfort in sadness.

Buffalo Chicken Sliders – Episode #02 When Husband Treats Well

Buffalo Chicken Sliders recipe, sliders recipe
You’ll often find me wishing that lockdown would hurry itself up and come to an end, despite I know that the new days does not mean a neat and virus-free start. What interested me most this year though, was the ordinary, because if I see the positive frame – it is full of love, and change. I have enjoyed somewhat the slower pace and quieter moment of the last few weeks. A particularly late night walks with hashim that good thing happened this time. If there is one binary that holds is good and the evil as its a constant dance. Steinbeck enlightenment was well put - all the goodness and the heroism will rise up again, then be cut down again and rise up. It isn’t that the evil thing wins — it never will — but that it doesn’t die. In 2020, I would like good to rise again and again. For me, it’s the hope, to be alive to it in the everyday stories of our lives.
