So my daughter has alot of food allergies and we were having family over for dinner.(7 adults and 5 kids) We asked them not to bring anything that we wanted to have a sit down dinner with everything that our daughter could eat. We would supply everything! We were going to have Fish(that my husband and father in law had caught), Potatoes(melted cheese potato squares, sourcream(kind of like a hashbrown side dish thing yummy)) and baked potatoes and chips and dip and steamed green beans. well one family members wanted baked beans and another wanted quacamole dip that they had already picked up the ingredients(let alone that we could make that with the right ingredients). But she wanted to bring hers.We had asked them nicely if they could not bring it that we just wanted a nice sit down dinner with not worring about our daughter having to tell her no in our own house, and we did invite them over! one was mad that she had already bought the stuff.We had asked her if she could make it another time or keep it at her house.So we ended up in a fight they didn't want to come over for dinner ! We canceled the whole thing. Because they wanted those two items . They had said that she is use to it. My daughter is 3yrs. old. We do have a 1 yr old. and we ALL eat this way at home. i make everything as much as possible from scratch. Does anyone dealing with this and have any tips on how to get these family members to get it?????? There is alot more to this story but this is the jist of it!
