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)?

No, I would not change the menu but I WOULD make that person something similar so they would not feel left out. This is not an "inhaling" allergy but if it WAS then by all means you could not have that person in the same room with the food and WOULD make something without the trigger. Only common sense.

What "story?" cruise? You are so eager for a scandal in Gina's family that you misread her post. She's not going to be specific about her daughter's worst trigger. Not about the DIL. Sheesh.

So you think there is more to the "story" & she is lying.  Sorry that doesn't let you off the hook for being a person who wants to feed tree nuts to the masses even when there are little children in the house with a deathly allergy.  The info in the paragraph above is the EXACT same thing she said before, except she doesn't want to put on this message board what the worst nut allergy that her dd has.  Probably a good idea...

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.

Food allergies that can kill are not the same as not liking a dish, I can't believe you compared the two.  Honestly, if one of my relatives was deathly allergic to an ingredient(s) I would be making a separate meal or dishes to insure that someone didn't suffer at my dinner table.

Wow.  Someone feeling left out is still more of a concern to you than one of your guests dieing.

No, there isn't. She forgot about the life threatening allergy and made an unsafe salad. That's the story. IDK why you're arguing with me about what happened. I said what happened. I'm not giving specific details b/c they aren't necessary. And I'm not going publicly disparage my SIL for doing something stupid. It happens. Which is why I am so careful. All the time.

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

What if all of the nuts had fallen to the bottom of the salad, and Regina and/or her DD didn't notice them until it was too late?  When I make salads with nuts, there's no way that every single thing the salad bowl wouldn't be contaminated.  I'm sure her SIL didn't serve tree nuts on purpose, but Regina's reaction may have been just what the SIL needed to remember it in the future.

Why wouldn't one research a possible food allergy, including a battery of test for their child?

So they HAVE accommodated for her in the past? Was this for a huge gathering or just one on one dinner?

I'm at loss her as to why it wouldn't be normal hostess behavior to accommodate deathly allergies of their guests.  Is that not normal in your neck of the words?
