Puerto Rican PKU dinner

December 7, 2011 in Uncategorized

Ok, I'm posting this blog because I can't find how to post a new forum topic. If anyone knows, please post a comment with instructions alt. I have been invited to a Puerto Rican Christmas dinner by mutual friends of the host, which I would like to attend. The dishes the hostess (who I've never met) will be serving include rice & beans, ham, and flan. I've been asked to bring a dish as well. I might bring sweet plantians, but I'm looking for another idea for Puerto Rican type something PKU friendly dish that is more filling in case my dishes are the only food I can eat. Any ideas PLEASE!
