From Dust Till Dawn Read-A-Thon: Challenge 4

This is an interesting challenge. Carina from Reading Through Life has asked participants in the From Dusk Till Dawn Read-A-Thon to imagine that they are fasting through the dusk-till-dawn hours as part of Ramadan.  Then, when we emerge from this fast, what would we want to eat?

I have to admit that I know nothing about Ramadan. So, just thinking about this post has been educational for me. I'm not someone who is a compulsive eater who who needs to eat a lot, but I don't sleep more than 6 or 7 hours a night and like to have a little something after I've been up for an hour or two. But, this is where my extraordinary powers of imagination come in! I imagine that after fifteen-ish hours of fasting, I'd be FAMISHED!

And, when I'm super hungry, what do I like to eat? There are two foods that come to mind.

First, guacamole. I eat this quite a bit. It's simple and easy to make and it's good if I'm alone or with others. I like to eat it with blue corn chips. Yum. Here's what I put in my homemade guac:

-An avocado or two
-A semi-ripe tomato (I like my guac chunky and firm)
-A clove of minced garlic
-A quarter lime, squeezed

And that's it!

The second food that I would crave would be a dish that I have to frive more than an hour to get. It's so yummy...It's pad Thai with tofu and vegetables. My mouth is watering.

I would make it myself, and I've tried. But, I have never been successful. So I just drive a long, long distance to eat it. It's always worth it.


  1. oh - yum - I love Pad Thai (and only have to drive 2 mins to get it :) I also have this home made one I make fairly often but it's pretty different to the Thai shop :)

    never had guacamole. Actually, never had Avocado either!

  2. Yum! Two of my favorites, too!!!! I've never been able to make a good Pad Thai at home either! Bummer.

  3. Those both look really yummy. I've made my own pad thai before, but since I live in a huge city, it's far quicker for me to just go out and buy it!
