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)?

Then don't make it complex. Send an email if it bothers you so much what they DON'T do, Include what it is you plan to bring and ask for the respect in accomodating your own child's needs in their own food preparation. It's not difficult. Bon appetit!

And that would do what to prevent cross contamination exactly? By making the dish with the allergen, you're not accomodating. So my question was, if you're the parent whose kid isn't being accomodated--what are you going to do?

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

Ah well, she didn't kill anyone, did she? B/c I'm vigilant about everything that goes in my kid's mouth.

Nice bob and weave, though. Still not answering my question, I see.

My child doesn't have severe allergies Regina so I wouldn't have to worry about that and I couldn't IMAGINE any of my family (either side) not remembering that they did.

That you have a different view of them now, than in the past.

Exactly Jam. Personally, I think even though I thought they knew, I would be reminding them (maybe even a few times) if something was so severe.

No one is perfect but for something so SEVERE, you bet my in-laws would remember that whenever my child is coming to eat, they would not have anything to affect her allergy.

Hilarious!  They are a more considerate host than you?  You never mentioned any of these great qualities about them before.  Why don't you try to emulate that kind of consideration when you have guests?

And what if, like you and Hazel have REPEATEDLY said on this thread that you would do, that a dish w/the allergen is present in the kitchen b/c of "family tradition" or because of the wants of others? You and Hazel both said you would serve the food anyway and that my kid should just not eat it. Pretend you're a parent who is well aware of the risk of cross contamination. What would you do in that case?

How is it so complex?  There was a problem and she told them it was a problem.  It's not that she came on the board all upset & didn't know what to do about the issue in the future.  She's been pretty clear about her communication.

You have exactly said that, even comparing a deathly allergy to "not liking chicken".
