Cross contamination happens...I shared this on FB this Morning

Allergy Warning: Cross contamination can happen anywhere...this is the same bag of frozen blueberries that I have bought for the past 5 years, but it is the first time that Iíve seen a ďforeignĒ piece of fruit. Now Imagine if this was a tree nut hidden in a bread or cereal or a granola bar...the outcome could be disastrous for someone with food allergies. It just proves why we continue to be so careful with the brands we chose to feed our son.

I liked the video and I didn't mind the brand references.

Great video!  (Though I could have done without all the makeup brand references...)

This is a new one for me...

"Food Allergens: We take food safety seriously. Please inform your server of any and all food allergies or sensitivities that you or any member of your party may have so that we can inform you of our food allergen policy. Note: Anyone with an allergy requiring an epi-pen must inform our staff and must be able to show they have an epi-pen available. Thank you for your understanding."

My first question is: is it legal?

DD went to her Frat's Formal last night.  She observed someone having anaphylaxis.  First time she has watched.  She was texting me and was very scared for the person. Odd for her to see that perspective. No news on how that kiddo is doing.

Yay for new food!

DS's favorite flavor of toaster waffles is cinnamon.  There wouldn't be any apples in it, but I bet (without trying because apple allergy) that cinnamon eggos would be good spread with apple butter or a bit of apple pie filling instead of syrup.  Occasionally I make DS a PB&J for breakfast with waffles instead of bread.

DS tried Eggs waffles yesterday.  He liked them but he asked me if they make an apple cinnamon flavor like Vans.  Those are his favorites and he can still have them if he wants.

For the 12 and under kids at swim meets our old team gave out rubber ducks for the winner of each highly sot after...DS still has them on display in his room.  The kids love them so when I was looking for a non-food item for my teal bucket I ordered a bunch of rubber ducks from Oriental Trading...all different themes.  I give them to anyone who wants them whether they take candy or not.

I believe it was moved a really long time ago to the night before due to kids causing Mass, when we were kids the night before was called Cabbage Night and that's when the eggs and the TP-ing of houses took place.  I haven't heard too much of that happening anymore or at least near us.

Rubber ducks?  Is there a story behind that one?  I think it's awesome! 

Also, why is Hallowe'en on a different day there?

So DS is only allergic to tree nuts...I could not believe how many PB cups he and his friends came home with last night.  I asked him people had other options available and he starts rattling off everything that is cross contaminated with peanuts.  I think the only contains item I saw was almond joy...I asked his friends not to eat them while here.

I always have 3 buckets...rubber ducks, peanut/tree nut free options and then some sort of chocolate that DS picks.
