I had a tiny bit of organic cooked chicken leftover last night from another meal, but not enough to make a meal for our whole family.   To save some money and extend that chicken, I mixed it with a bit of organic tofu to make chicken tacos.   My family didn’t even notice the difference until I told them.   In fact, my picky kids at two tacos.   They loved that I set out all the toppings, so they got to make their own.   Letting them make their own, always helps us avoid those fun fights at the table about finishing (or at least starting) your meal.

I’m going to use the rest of that tofu later this week.   I like tofu, but I hate the texture.   I always need to mask it, so I don’t feel it.   Any great tofu recipe recommendations?
