I’ve been informed by Jane that Today is National Margarita Day. I must admit, I’ve never heard of it before, and if I’d given it any thought, I would have tied that in with Cinco de Mayo. However, any excuse is a good excuse so we will be going out for Mexican food and margarita’s tonight. Mexican is one of the easiest cuisines to veganize. Simply start with Rice and Beans. We usually get a fajita and split that as well.
Just a reminder… there can be pitfalls. Some restaurants prepare their rice using chicken stock, and some use lard in the preparation of their beans. In order to be on the safe side, ask your server to check with the chef. We’ve had good luck ordering black beans — so far none have bee prepared with lard.
