Welcome to a new week :)

1. Has spring "sprung" by you yet?

2. What are you wearing today?

3. Do you make a special menu for Easter (if you celebrate it)?

For a salad, I would have made a separate one for the person BEFORE making the one with the nuts.

What is so important about the nuts that you couldn't just make something without nuts so that there would be no danger of cross-contamination?  You are putting the desire for tree nuts ahead of the child's safety. Why?

And this part of the debate is called distraction.  Yes Chick, no one will notice that!  ROFL!

<p>This all would fall under family gossip and drama wouldn't it, cchick? Lol!  My sister has taken over as matriarch in the family and her spreads are huge, mostly italian!  But when she invites all of us + her husband's side there's always someone that complains about the food or the lack of room or something..... Don't come, Bring your own food then, I mean gee, BAER! </p>

Great reaction to a deadly food allergy.

Are you really having this much trouble following a fairly simple narrative?

Some things are just "holiday" foods that people look forward to all year long. You are not familiar Lauren with big family holiday gatherings, correct? Say 20-50 people?

Aren't there 364 other days of the year tht food could be served?

"But it does go to show that food allergy parents can not ever let their guards down. EVER.".... ITA and I would have made sure before I went over there that she remembered.

That is surprising Geschigtal because she has made a HUGE deal out of it here, on a messageboard on several threads with NO food involved. I think if that was MY child, I would be making SURE there was no life-threatening food at the gathering I was going to and I would think they would know by know since she said they have been accommodating her for years. How do you "forget"?

I guess you'd better not have dinner at your own house.

Jam-most gatherings at holidays is "holiday" food and the same every year. There are just things that people look forward to. I would NEVER suggest to put ANYONE in danger but I would also expect the parent to be cautious about what the child can and can not eat and be aware that many things are family traditions.

Ummm, I think RG's reaction shows that she *IS* cautious ...

This is a fairly simple narrative Gina has offered up. There is nothing complicated about it.  Why are you having so much trouble following the sequence of events?

Nope. Not what I said. Everyone around her is aware of the allergies. As I said earlier, she's always got her epi pen and antihistimines. If you were to hand her an item of food, she'd hand it back and ask if it were safe. Then she'd tell you she's allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, cow's milk & latex and request that you make sure the food didn't have any of that before she ate it. Or she'd just hand it back and tell you she can't have it b/c she has food allergies. As her only anphylactic reaction was to an allergen we were unaware of until the reaction, I'd say we're managing her allergies just fine, Hazel. Her allergist empthatically agrees. What you think really isn't my concern. 

On Wednesdays we wear pink.
