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)?

Why yes...yes she does.  And then beckpedals.

No backpedaling Littlemiss. I do think that if there is no person who has an allergy, everyone should not suffer though. Should they be aware and considerate, yes but IMO, if my child had an allergy that bad, I would bring my own food and if I had to, I would find something similiar that everyone else was eating without the harmful ingredients so they didn't feel left out. THAT is what I meant. Thanks.

My dd and myself are allergic to certain nuts so I am aware of the dangers.

DS went through a period of food aversion, b/w the ages of 4 and 5 and just last year.  He'd throw up in the morning a lot and mid-afternoon - often after lunch.  I kept a diary of it and tried to follow it back to his diet but doctors are very careful NOT to call reactions to food allergies unless you're willing to go through a huge battery of tests, The doctor also threw out possible celiac disease or early krohns and a friend of mine had to scare me with this horror story about a kid at her childrens' school who dropped dead on the football field that had a history of chrons, Nice, Sigh!  DS is 10 now and he's still a picky eater but he's safe and thank God his aversions aren't deadly.

1. Has spring "sprung" by you yet?  No, we're in the midst of getting a foot of snow right now--it's not supposed to stop all day.

2. What are you wearing today? Long sleeved purple shirt, white tank top, jeans & purple Sanitas.

3. Do you make a special menu for Easter (if you celebrate it)? My mom usually hosts it and she usually makes ham.  This year we're haveing the big family dinner a day early, so I guess the actual Easter dinner with just the 4 of us can be anything we want.

If no one has an allergy, everyone should not have to "suffer"...that doesn't even make sense.  You are criticizing her right in this post, after you claimed you knew about allergies and after you beckpedaled that you didn't say oh yum I want me some nuts & butter here's this website where you can get recipes.  YUM YUM YUM

Regina is being what a great mother should be doing--protecting her dd.  Her dd is informed, because Regina knows that she cannot even expect people in her family who are supposed to care about her dd, to be careful and considerate. Many many people are cavalier, like you, and all all concerned about the poor family suffering to not be able to eat a nut in a dinner.  There is not suffering to not serve a meal with some nuts in it.  There are very few recipes in the world you could make that you couldn't just leave the nut out of it and make it with the rest of the ingredients.  Regina already told you that she brings food for her dd.  Regina already told you very good reasons why she doesn't just "make a similar food."  You don't think that's too important--well it's probably a very good thing that you are not serving her any food.

I think you said Heaven forbid a food allergy kill, is that what you are talking about.  I'm hoping you weren't saying that sarcastically.

Do you get along with your dh's family Regina? lol

Why are you laughing? Generally speaking, I do. But I have very little tolerance for carelessness or stupidity, from his family or anyone else in my life. And forgetting that your niece has a life threatening allergy that you've been accomodating for half her life is absolutely both. 

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

Littlemiss I am going by the perspective of someone cooking for many people at a holiday dinner. Just like if you don't like chicken and there are 20 other people there that will eat chicken, do you want the host to make you a separate meal because you don't like it? I know she said she brings something different for her that she can eat. I suggested to see if there recipes that the host does not eliminate tree nuts from that her dd could feel like she was eating the same thing as the others so she doesn't feel left out. I would never expect someone who was cooking for a crowd to cater to me or my child's allergies.

I think anyone who could call foregoing tree nuts at holiday meals a few times a year "suffering" must have led a very fortunate life.
