Summer Bbq's

Recommended Posts

We have been invited to our first BBQ this weekend and I am not sure how I am going to cope.

I will be bringing my own food mostly and I will be keeping snacks in the car for just in case and I will bring my own drinks!

My friends are pretty understanding but it scares me because I so don't want to be sick.

Any suggestions? And staying home isn't a good one! :rolleyes: I'm tired of staying home, its summer its time to party and relax cause winter is supposed to be over (lets see if the weather cooperates!).

Other then the food, the real scary part is the hot tub! EWWW swimsuit shopping <_<

I bring whatever I want to grill wrapped in foil so I don't have to worry about CC on the grill or in the charcoal. I also bring a dish to pass that's gluten-free, and my friends are really good about not sharing spoons or dropping crumbs in my food. Otherwise I'd either not bring a dish to pass and just bring my whole meal or I'd take some of my dish out at home and bring the rest of the dish for other people.


Gluten-Free since September 15, 2005.

Peanut-Free since July 2006.

That foil trick is perfect!!

All of my friends/family are used to me bringing my own food. I have for many years. I went through all sorts of diets over the past 12 years trying to get well. They have been with me through "raw foodism", "vegan", "vegetarian", "whole foods", and now gluten-free, DF, DF. etc. The will joke with me a bit, but I dont mind. Hey Shay, what food are you avoiding this week?

For me it is all about visiting with people I enjoy being around. And honestly I simply do not go if I dont like the people. So it eleminates any worries.


GLUTEN FREE 4/4/08. LEGUME/SOY FREE 5/15/08. YEAST FREE. CORN FREE. GRAIN FREE. DAIRY FREE. I am eating all meats, eggs, veggies, fruits, squash, nuts and seeds. I just keep getting better every day. :)

Hi,

Good for you for taking such good care of yourself. I always take my food wherever I go, and have for years. Nobody says anything anymore, and I am always a happy camper because I have whatever I need. Large bags, especially those lined with plastic are great, and I use those plate-sized styrofoam tortilla warmers to keep my hot food in and it stays hot for hours. I always take my own spoon or fork and napkins too, in order to be really prepared. It has become kind of a game to see how well I can package whatever I'm eating, and how unobtrusive I can be in eating it. Good luck, and have lots of fun at your barbecue. Welda

We decided we are taking a huge taco salad. One of the ladies is bringing a large fresh fruit platter so one way or another I will be eating. I emailed the hostess and told her and her only concern was if I would have enough to eat.

We will probably bring some snacks too.

I really like the idea of the grill pan to bring. I know at the big box stores they sell disposable grill racks to go on top of the regular rack. At least the options are there.

I was so worried about this at first but now I am feeling much better about it. Thanks everyone
