Question of the Day #455

When I lived at Mansfield, I kept a mental list of everyone's food dislikes and allergies. GB hated mushrooms (until I made him roasted mushrooms that he now gobbles like french fries) and wasn't a big fan of lamb. Polly was allergic to shellfish. So was Rob, who also suffered from a nut allergy.

When I planned dinners, I planned around these allergies and others.

Do you have any food allergies? If so, what are you allergic to?



  1. I became allergic to clams when I turned 18. I'm not allergic to oysters or mussels though. And my throat doesn't close up, I just hurl a lot; it's more like food poisoning not the throat closing up type of allergy. Someone told me that clams and wine together are a classic allergy, that they react together. Strange right? Other than that, no food allergies thankfully!!

  2. Nothing that I know of. Thank goodness! I feel sorry for those who are allergic to shellfish. Life wouldn't be the same without lobster!

  3. No allergies here! Yay!

    There are a ton of allergies at my daughter's school. One poor little one is allergic to latex. You can't go anywhere near the school with a balloon!

  4. No, thank God, and neither do any of my kids or Girl Scouts, which is a major score. MSG (aka Modified Food Starch and Natural Flavors) is the only thing we have to watch out for, since it gives my hubby a wicked headache.

  5. You are so wonderful to take note of your friend's allergies and food dislikes. Not all people do so.

    I have a child with multiple food allergies and it's a difficult road. Hearing how you take care of your friends and family makes me so happy. Many blessings to you.
