Siblings…. As I sit here blogging, I Can’t help but reminisce of all the good times we had growing up. Whatever had us siblings having those little niggly quarrels growing up, is now in adulthood all banished to the furthest memories, opening up to what can be best termed as friends for life now.
After mariages, when siblings get scattered all over the country, it is such a huge relief to have all these modern technologies today, that with just a push of one button, we can all stay connected❤️
My blog today is related to my youngest sister, Humarah, who when growing up had always looked up to our eldest sister, and I hope myself?, and here we are today, grateful that they have both given me the opportunity to be the “Worlds Best Aunty” to my adoring nephews and nieces?. It is during one of my “Off Days” when you just become blank as to what to whip up for dinner, when she comes to my rescue, sharing her doting in laws recipe that she has mastered. Now with her permission, I will share on this delectable recipe that will have you returning to it time and again, for a Quick and Easy Chicken Roast.
