    Just in case you were trying to figure out what low protein dish to serve to celebrate, there is a recipe for tacos, mushroom fajitas (one of my favorites), vegetarian chili and mexican rice on Cook for Love’s website.  If your phe tolerance in higher, you can make mexican brown rice to help get more fiber into your diet. 

    Molly is on an anti-mushroom kick after Granny took her to an organic mushroom farm.  After seeing what they grew in, she swore off of them .  Thanks Granny!  The tacos are even more delicious with butternut squash — just replace the mushrooms with an equal amount of small diced butternut squash.  When it softens mash it with a fork or potato masher — looks A LOT like refried beans, and the taste is delicious!

    We make soft tortillas with Taste Connections Mix (thanks Malathy!) and also have a hard taco.  Serve with salsa, avocado, daiya cheese shreds, lettuce and a bit of sour cream if your phe allowance permits. 


    PS MTE frozen margarhitas are quite tasty!  (No, I do not give them to Molly with the tequila — Rosie and I are not sharing the good stuff!)
