CAUTION: Walt Disney World has introduced mobile ordering for special diets and allergy menus and it's a HUGE red flag for me.  HUGE.  These menus do not take cross contact, traces, or multiple allergens into consideration.  For everyone here, please DO NOT use mobile ordering - or order from the regular 'allergy' menus if you have a (severe) food allergy!!  Always speak with a chef.  ALWAYS!

There, my PSA is over for the day.  Oh my goodness, this is frightening.  I know most of you here know better, but I feel the need to share the finer details, because they aren't so obvious. 

A few years back, I spoke with one of the Disneyland chefs who helped develop the food allergy menus in the first place and he was terrified that someone with a severe allergy would casually order from the allergy menu, not mention their allergy, and their meal end up with traces, or a mix up that caused a reaction.  Even he didn't agree that the allergy menus should be handled by patrons without a chef consultation.  They are guidelines, not guarantees. 

I posted some photos of the app, and Disney's allergy notice (which says to speak with a chef), on my work FB page, for those that follow it.

I'm glad it went well over all and you were safe despite the challenges!  I'd love to hear about how your shore excursions went and whether you ate/were able to eat off ship, too.

Update: It went ok.  Accommodations in the main dining room were great, and they tried hard to make exciting meals for me each day.  The buffet was a huge fail, as getting chefs to understand why eating from the buffet was not an option was frustrating.  Surprisingly, room service was exceptional with food allergies, too!  I put some reviews on my work Facebook page.

The week before the wedding, out on a farm, middle of nowhere, I wanted to pick up spare epipens. None available. The week after the wedding, AuviQ is available in Canada as a temporary fix for the epipen shortage. But I cannot get it because.....epipen is now available.

See what a little competition does!

Let me know, Hezz if you are successful too!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting that you were able to get them!  Just got off the phone with the pharmacy and 2 sets of Auvi-Qs for each kid are supposed to arrive in 10 days.  Now pants shopping for DS will be so much easier this winter.

I googled and found instructions to make breakfast sausages with no casings.

I may like my new grinder.

I have a sausage stuffer. Anyone ever make sausages?

The instructions say: “If using natural casings....”

Where would I buy them? Butcher? Grocery store butcher?

What other kind is there? And where would I buy them?
