LIVING

With EoE, Allergies, Asthma and a G-Tube

Mexican night!

Our menu is expanding as we’ve added a few more foods back to our diet. I really feel like we’re almost “normal”.

What kid doesn’t like cheese quesadillas?!  It’s sometimes hard to find some flour tortilla’s the boys can eat. Most have soy flour in them. I did find some smaller 8″ ones this time at the store. So I sprayed the skillet with cooking spray laid in one tortilla, covered it with cheddar and mozzarella cheese and topped it with the second tortilla. You can add beans, meat, olives, tomatoes, pretty much anything. My boys can’t eat beans and won’t eat them with meat. So we stick with plain cheese. Once  I’ve flipped it once and they’re done I use a pizza cutter to cut it into triangles. Charlie and Gage haven’t had condiments in a year. We’re slowly getting some back. However, since not having them in so long they claim to not like them. I do load up their plates though. I mash-up an avocado and put a dollop on their plate along with sour cream, mild safe salsa, olives, tomatoes and some lettuce. They usually will try everything but not always eat all of it. I feel like as long as I put it on the plate it will tempt them enough to keep trying it and get use to eating it. You can serve other sides like re-fried beans and Mexican or Spanish rice.

Now for Nathan and I we did burritos. Stayed with in the same lines of the boys dinner making it easy on me! I used ground beef for the meat base. We have done this with ground pork, not sausage, pork. Taste is just about the same once you get the spices in there. We used the burrito spice packet this time instead of taco.  I then set up a little bar of toppings: lettuce, olives, salsa, sour cream, mashed up avocado (Nathan can’t eat store-bought guac.), spanish rice, re-fried beans and original bushes baked beans. Baked beans are sooooo good on tacos and burritos. Something my dad taught me when I was little. That’s it! Load it up. Everyone had a full tummy.
