1. What's for dinner?

2. When invited to BBQ's in the summer, what signature dish do you usually bring?

3. Where did your parents meet?

Exactly. I eat a bit of dark chocolate every day. I'm not deprived...and Spring, I actually don't have diabetes in my gene pool. That would be the silver lining of my mother's infertility.

I had a patty melt and tater tots today. lol  Definitely not feeling deprived. :)

Your signature dish is the opposite of "moderation" dear. And I'm sure you know what gluttony is...

It's my "signature" to bring something fresh and healthy.  Most potlucks, ime, are filled with very fatty foods, very carby foods, or very fake foods.  The few healthy things usually are very plain (veggie try or fresh fruit).  So my goal is always to do something relatively healthy and somewhat unique.  And I rarely take any home.  It may not be a dish that *everyone* at the potluck eats (I've seen many a redneck male relative go "what's that?" and wrinkle their nose), but the ones that do are usually very appreciative.

1. Broiled salmon and asparagus 2. I dislike potlucks and usually turn down that type of invitation. If I can't avoid it, I usually take a salad and a dessert. My fallback is Thai Chicken Salad and chocolate chip brownies, or perhaps a Tres Leches cake. But the Tgai salad has peanuts so I only take it if the hostess knows for sure there will be no issues. 3. At a bus station cafe.

Good quality vanila ice cream is completely under-rated.

I hate potlucks for that very reason. And b/c they're every food allergy mom's worst nightmare... We grill with friends frequently, but it isn't potluck. The only time we really "potluck" is at church or with family. If my friends invite me over for dinner--they don't generally ask me to bring something. I may offer, or I'll bring a nice wine. But potluck parties are not common entertaining amongst our friends...

I can't imagine how difficult that is for you and itty bitty.  Most of the potlucks I go to are work-related, for an organization, or a family reunion.

It really does just become a new norm. But she had a playdate today w/a friend from school and was starving afterwards. She said, "MOM--we only ate gum!" My guess is that they were a bit freaked out at the idea of feeding her... I did loan her the cutest little teeny crossbody bag for her epi pen. I figure if she has to carry a bag (and she does), she may as well rock the adorable accessories.

I keep seeing that sopapilla cheesecake thing at parties ... and I refuse to have it. If I"m going to have that many calories, I want to use them on something I truly love. .............. Yeah, If I am seriously trying to lose weight I won't eat just anything.
