My week with Mortimer’s and Give Away for one lucky winner!


I’m the type of person that proudly shares that I got my shirt for $6 or that the gourmet tasting cookies are actually made from a box . I just have such a thrill finding bargains while shopping  or short cuts to recipes that I must share with anyone I encounter. I am the kooky lady talking to strangers about random tips and tricks.  Today’s post is about my latest ‘find’, trust me you’ll love it too. Especially when you find out the  give away associated with it!

The moment I heard about Halal meat pies that are ready to eat within minutes, I knew  we would be BF’s..but I had no idea we would be BFF’s ( yes, I’ve been hanging with my little cousins a tad too much).

In the past a ready to go meal was always a compromise between eating something with meat and flavourful but stinking up the lunchroom or inconspicuously eating some bland macaroni without attracting extra attention. Mortimer’s Halal On The Go immediately piqued my interest.. HMA Certified Halal meat?, Convenient? Wholesome ingredients? No MSG and artificial flavours? But it must not be flavourful. I immediately agreed to test them out and have not looked back ever since. (more…)

Fabulous Friday

Salaamz guys,

Remember me?

I know I know, I’ve been pretty bad with posting here ,I’m sorry! I’ve been under the weather and working on some pretty cool stuff which Insha’Allah I will unveil soon.

Ugh, it’ just been me, my sinuses and I. Not only have I been behind in posting articles, I missed out on two fabulous party’s in Mr.Raja’s Neighbourhood; I wasn’t kidding when I said we party in the weeknights. As part of my resolve to stay optimistic I’m trying to see the benefit of  being stagnant this week. It’s been a time for me to reflect more than to produce. I feel like I’m about to break through my cocoon  soon…kind of like a thought incubating period

This weeks fabulous Friday is kind of an indication of what’s been occupying my time: positive change. . (more…)

Recently,  my childhood best friend and I made plans to go out for a ladies only dinner. It felt like the stars had to align and pigs had to fly before we were able to actually go out. It’s sad that dinner has become a monumental occasion but alas ’tis the reality of my life.

While I was contemplating steak or ribs it dawned on me- more like thundered  on my joyous parade- that we might have to choose a non-halal restaurant.!!!

I was so excited to ditch the kids  go out for a relaxing dinner (one which I wouldn’t have to cook) that I forgot that she doesn’t eat meat.

Thing is, I’m a Meat-a-Tarian. (more…)
