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)?

Are you not familiar with larger families roating some of the holidays?  It's pretty common in my family, but we socialize with both sides of the family on a regular basis.

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

If those nuts could kill one of your guests, why would you even use them?

I'd prefer to stick with people who forget than people who don't find it important in the first place.

So ALL of your families do NOT know about the severity of your dd's allergies. Is that what you are saying Regina?

She said no such thing, why would make that up?  Wow.

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"?

Which is exactly what she did, as she said numerous times.  People forget, they are human.  Really.

Why is it wrong for the sil to serve the deadly nuts but not you?  You can't have it both ways.  You can't just distract from what you said you would do and say others are wrong for doing the same thing.

Everybody remembering means absolutely nothing, if they would still serve the allergen foods.  Nothing. You don't get points for that.  It's actually worse.
