My DH and I sat down and had a chat last night and this morning. He believes, like some here, that I should provide my own food since I am gluten free and they are not. I pointed out to him that my vegetarian family bought a $100 prime rib and prepared it for him on Christmas, plus they made a separate batch of garlic mashed potatoes because he likes his made with chicken stock. And I would never tolerate them not asking him to bring his own food. And his is just a food preference, not a medical requirement. He said he would sleep on my points and we would talk in the morning. We just had a talk and came to a compromise. We will attend Easter with his parents for dessert only. The morning will be at home with our kids and dinner will be with my family. I just called them and they are rushing out to buy a ham for Jason. I felt like saying ..... "no, he can bring his own plate." BTW, dessert at his parents will not be anything I can eat so I have to bring my own dessert. They will still be giving our foster the basket we provided, but my family has run out and bought her a ton of things.
