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)?

So why do you think her OWN family wouldn't know and remember?

Maybe she's ditzy? Maybe she was so busy she forgot? Maybe she got caught up in the "but we always have xyz for such-and-such holiday. Maybe she got confused. Maybe she's and idiot and doens't know what tree nuts are. Who the hell knows?

Do you have a deathly immediate reaction to cigarette smoke?

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.

How on earth do you know that?  You have said that you would have items that had allergy ingredients in them because it's so special to serve certain foods on certain holidays.  You are backtracking pretty darn hard at the moment, rightly so of course.

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.

Again, not what I asked. Can't answer it w/o contradicting yourself earlier, can you?

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

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!

Oh my.

Heck, in my family we even try to accomodate preferences, let alone life threatening allergies.  My grandma and mom always made sure there were onion-free dishes for my aunt and cousin who hated them.  And again, they just didn't like them.</p>[/quote]

Same here.  I never use onions in any of my cooking because DH hates onions (both taste and spell),  I do not use nuts at holiday meals  because one of my  DDs does not like nuts (with the exception of peanuts).  Although DD3 is not a strict vegetarian she does try to limit her meat so I always have a vegetarian option for her.

My mom always made two potato/pasta salads for family gatherings, one for those that liked the celery and onions and one for those that did not.

Oh yeah Jam, everything you can imagine is on that site. Food, DIY, wedding, women's fashion, children's, mens, travel, etc. etc.

Don't forget about the porn.

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.

I can't IMAGINE why you feel it is important that other hosts need to remember not to serve deadly food if your child had an allergy, but you feel it would be ok to serve the deadly food if you are hosting.

Thanks, ladies. She does love herself some sushi. And Bord. She thinks Bord is the bees knees after that last sushi date...</p>

You'd think they had been best friends forever or something. And I think she ate more sushi than I did.  No, scratch that ... I ate a lot, lol.

It was just an idea.  My BIL and sister go out of their way with emails but for just the opposite reasons, They are the hosts and include in it the menu, time for company, and a request for sides if you plan to attend..  It works!  Obviously this is different and so heaven forbid worthy...  Lol.
