How I dealt with the Easter Holiday..
|My mom made most of our clothing, especially for holidays She used a lot of McCall's patterns. We always had pretty dresses for Easter.|
|My mom made these outfits for me, my cousins and my sister for New Year's Eve one year. l - r, me, my cousin, my cousin, my sister up front - Queens, NY circa 1969|
|Circa 1990 - Easter Sunday in the park, Queens, NY. These kids are all adults now.|
|l - r top circa 1989, my son wearing my niece's bonnet and purse. 1977, at my grandmother's house.|
l - r bottom circa 1989, my son in his Easter suit, circa 1997, my nephew, my son and my daughter.
My favorite was always Pizza Rustica! Yes... it's a heart attack on a plate, but we ate it once a year and we worked it off, no worries!
These days, I can't eat any of it. (See Oh, I Know, You Have Celiac Disease. Umm, No, Not Exactly) It's loaded with GLUTEN - the enemy. (See That Doesn't LOOK Gluten Free) In fact, I can 't even smell it.
In order for me to be with the family, they cannot cook these things in the same house we will be celebrating in. Just smelling it sends me into an allergic attack, even hours, up to the next day after cooking. (See Family Birthday Celebrations) My sister had to cook everything at my mom's house, so I could join them at her house. Obviously, I couldn't eat anything. (See Congratulations! You Just Gave Birth To....)
Have you ever gone to any gathering, holiday, celebration and not eaten ANYTHING, ever? I have. I do it all the time. Think about it. The next time you are at any type of event, don't eat or drink ANYTHING! Sit back and watch everyone else enjoy and don't touch one thing offered. Sounds like fun, doesn't it? NOPE.

I have issues with gluten, nuts, soy, corn and eggs and also IT, I also have problems with many medications and sulfates.
|I'm cool, I drink my nutrition out of a Budweiser glass!|
