mom24es,

In the past, we have offered to bring something to contribute to the meal, which of

course was something we were able to eat. The biggest problem we faced with that was

that the foods we eat are not inexpensive, so to bring enough to feed our family of 4

and extra to share can become quite costly. We are fortunate to have become friends

wiith a famliy that is very sensitive to our needs, as they have their own food sensitivities

but outside of that, I must say, we have found it easier to become hermits. We try to

seek out events that aren’t centered around food instead. Not an easy task, as our

culture seems so intent on focusing on food but we have found that when food is out

of the picture the fellowship is smuch sweeter.
