Ah peanuts, I alwys did like the cute yellow bird
Peanuts or pretzels, a choice is good. The problem is that the anti-peanut noisemakers are now pushing for (and in some cases actually getting) the airlines to ban peanuts on airplanes completely [http://goo.gl/dbd15]. So far, the DOT has not passed any regulations.
What concerns me is that peanuts are being treated like some sort of toxic substance, and a very small number of people are pushing for very draconian action.
I'll probably bring a large bag of peanuts with me the next time I fly, just to make a point.
well, when I read the death toll comparison between mahiuana and peanuts, I didn't think they would go thad far..
"peanut allergy" is a very close anagram of "peanut gallery"
My adopted niece spent the whole day yesterday with her mother giving her antihistimines and monitoring her breathing b/c one of the grandmothers at her preschool decided to give her son a peanut snack. (it's like peanut-butter flavored cheetos). Abby ASKED if it had peanuts and they told her no. (My daughter was there, and that's what she reported.)
I've been rallying for the preschool to be peanut-free since the beginning of the year, because mistakes happen with 4-5 year olds. (18 kids)
Last year, my daughter took peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to preschool every day, and this year, we've been struggling to find lunches that she likes, but we're just not willing to take the chance (Abby is her best friend).
May God smite you IG with an allergy so that you would be more understanding!
Aahz - make sure that new place of yours has extra rooms - because IG sans coffee is not pretty!! I might have to move in with you guys!
It's really a shame that my kids don't like peanut butter. It would be so easy to pack lunches.
("I like peanuts ... and I like butter ... but I do not like peanut butter ... weird!")
One of the more successful lunches here is omelet in a pita (though you need real pita, not the Sahara crap that's dry enough to be croutons when you buy it)
And every time I make an omelet, I remember not to burn it b/c of the whole raped by a walrus(?) thing...
Kinneret likes cheese. Sometimes she will take cheese and tomato sauce as a kind of 'cold pizza.'
My mom used to make us cream cheese and jelly which I thought was vile.
Of course, if we could send meat, my kids would be in 7th heaven. They both love smoked turkey breast with mustard and ketchup.
Just out of curiosity, did you use any visual media at all? And if so which ones?
