I am having a few friends over and am checking to see if there are any food needs. Since my March 2021 pneumonia, I can’t eat gluten. Weird, huh? But antibodies tend to rise as we get older, darn them. And there can be a rising baseline. Double darn.
Anyhow, I have some funny friends. My query “Is there anything you don’t eat?” got these responses:
“I don’t eat anchovies or dried fishies or grubs.”
“We eat everything in moderation.”
“shellfish, giant rubbery cooked mushrooms….”
They crack me up! I think I invited the right people.
Now, let’s see, what is my menu, with no liver, gluten, shellfish, giant rubbery cooked mushrooms, anchovies, dried fishies or grubs? Tough, huh? Pretty narrow range left.
I took the photograph at the Great Port Townsend Bay Kinetic Sculpture Race in September 2022. Pretty earnest discussion going on among an interesting group.

You’re a considerate hostess. My sister-in-law is SO good about checking for food preferences and restrictions. But she’s a great cook and always finds a way to work around all of them. I’m less nimble in the kitchen. Just learning to deal with my own intolerances (cow’s milk and eggs) is hard enough. I didn’t develop them until I was 70. Until then I ate everything.
People seem to be developing them more or maybe we are more aware of them. I can work around gluten but I do miss it!
small rubbery mushrooms, though, those are good? I like your friends.
