Iftar Cooking with my Girls

Two of my really good friends came over this afternoon to cook for Iftar.
They let me choose the menu and so it looked like this:
Starter- Tomato and Basil Soup
Main Course- Chicken Chilli Stirfry and Lemon, Mushroom, and Spinach Risotto, Vegetable Couscous
Dessert- Chocolate Self-saucing Pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream
Drinks: Lemon and Mint Spritzer

These were all some of my tried and tested recipes as we wanted a nice, fun, relaxing time to cook and not a crisis situation in which the stock overflows from the pot... (which it did!)

Here are some pictures of the food-in-the-making:

The vegetables for the couscous

Stirfrying the vegetables for the stirfry! Yes, that blurry thing is a hand!
Our little joke.
The vegetables all cut up and ready to be used!
My attempt of an artistic shot of the vegetables.

What the table looked like! Red, orange, and white!

The risotto!
Chocolate Selfsaucing Pudding! Looks messy, doesn't it?
