A rose is a rose…is a rose. Right? Nope. A rose is a rose, yes…but it is definitely not just a rose. It is a gardeners delight, a respite to our sights and the quintessential flower of romances. Hence, I welcome each of you to this virtual iftar potluck with a refreshing rose beverage.
And off course, with some dates – the traditional choice of food for Muslims to break their fast.
I am grateful to all of you, my guests, as I welcome you to this potluck and share a meal virtually. Whether you are participating in the iftar potluck or popping over from a participant guest’s blog for the first time or an avid fan of With A Spin, welcome! Please come in, join in the Ramadan festivities, and enjoy the feast! While you enjoy the feast, we can extend our conversation about Ramadan from the posts here, here and here, chit-chat about Ramadan recipes, talk about Ramadan and Eid gifts, Ramadan or Eid decoration, or whatever topic you feel comfortable discussing. We gathered here to learn little more about Ramadan and foster a better inter-religious understanding, so no question about Ramadan is awkward.
Thank you so much for accepting my invitation to attend this iftar potluck. I am honored and thrilled. Ramadan is a very special time for me and your presence makes it even more special that words cannot describe.
I hope you enjoy your time here over at With A Spin. Please peek in below for the feast and hop on to the other delicious recipes prepared by the potluck guests. I will continue to update the delicious links as guests come over throughout the day today, so make sure to come back later for more.
