Today's Special: Nit-Picky Platter

I never intended to write two posts in one day, but to be fair, the first post was actually sometime right after midnight last night, so I don't really count that as "today."

As I mentioned in my previous post, tonight was our night to host our weekly family dinner. Lately it has become exceedingly more and more difficult to plan meals, because everyone in Clint's family are on this or that diet or are going organic or are eating only detox-happy foods or whatever. Well, today we received a text from Clint's mom regarding tonight's dinner. It does such a great job of illustrating my aforementioned point that I couldn't resist sharing it. Here's the text, word for word:
Moo and Mike are coming over to your house tonight to visit but not eat because Moo can't eat after 3:30. I will bring my own dinner because I can only have a piece of fruit. You will only have to cook for you guys and Dad but we will all be there. Love you!

Haha--I love it! Need I say more?

P.S. We decided on sub sandwiches. Later I discovered Moo can't eat after 3:30 because she has her morning sickness at night and Mike decided to go 100% organic. I give the organic thing about two weeks before it fizzles out.


  1. Sounds like my in-laws. My nephew is highly allergic to gluten, my niece is vegetarian, my brother in law is full vegan, and the rest of them only eat organic. Oddly when I plan something at my house I plan through all of the extraordinary diets, but when we come to their events I have to bring my own food if I don't want a mushy vege cake. What up wit' dat?

  2. Holy cow Sarah! I can't believe you are able to plan meals that make everyone happy--geez woman! How ironic though that you're supplying your own food at their events--that just seems wrong.

    So true, Kristyn! Lucky for me my in-laws are actually pretty great in comparison with others. But I still have to poke fun once in awhile.

    Haha Shan!!
