In this outing I am going to share with you a dish that is simple and fast to cook.If we are busy and don't have much time to spend cooking elaborate dishes than this is the dish for you. It is called Sweet Sour Meat Balls. You can substitute the meat balls with meat,fish,chicken,sea food or egg or just plain vegetables if you like.

Thank you for all your doa.He has come home and is recuperating at home. However he is suffering from stone in the bladder and is in pain due to that. Alhamdulillah at the time of writing the pain has eased probably some of the stones have come out due to the medication. His tongue swelled because he is allergic to the stone medicines, so kinda difficult to eat.... he doesn't eat much anyways and this problem compounded that. We are hopeful that he will get better. On behalf of the family and my dad I thank you my fellow bloggers and friends for your prayers and doa and concern. May Allah reward you for your kindness. Thank you so much my friends.

Till we meet again, take care.
