She called at 10pm last night and asked for a call back so she can tell us her dietary requirements, even though I already have it all on the reservation where I have a field that asks you for dietary requirements. DOH!

"Notes We are both lactose intolerant, plus no soy (except soy oil ok in small quantities). Sherry is also gluten free"

Not vegan, or vegetarian too? How about ham and eggs and potatoes for breakfast!  

This is why the longer I do this the more i say cook regular foods for breakfast, whole foods and amazingly enough, more people can eat them. I don't cook with soil oil, or any oil for that matter when I make breakfast.  It is just funny when you have people day in and day out and you have a "one night only" stay and they expect this flippin' dietitian to be cooking their meals for them. I need to raise my rates... Jus' sayin'...

I will never forget my military family traveling with 3 kids, 4 horses, 2 dogs, and 4 cats. Dad makes the rez. Day of - their church thows them a goodbye luncheon with collection to help them move - so late start. Then the truck had problems getting over the mountain so they had gfrequent stops (I think it kept overheating) so they arrive at Midnight. During an afternoon update call, Dad thinks to tell me 1 kid is GF.  OK, I will make my egg bake and to help me along, make a loaf of GF bread and some GF peanut butter choc chip muffins.. When they arrive I am told oh, BTW, the kid cannot have eggs or peanut butter AND they want a 7 AM breakfast. 1 night at military discount with second room at deep discount...........

Today everyone wanted half portions. No bread. But only after everything was being cooked.

Poor dh ended up messing up because it was too much.

We still don't have it figured out how to do semi short order.

Or just the plain fussy ones.  Have a guy there just out of boot camp, another one night (honeymoon) only. 

Bride said 'he is very fussy just give him a biscuit or pancakes or waffles'  So I asked what about stuffed waffles,  he scrunched up his face and shook his head.  She said he is very picky. 

Not sure how he made it through boot camp but life will be tough for him if he has to live off MRE's for any period of time. 

Plain pancakes, hashbrowns & sausage for him today - that is if he shows up, he has 20 minutes!

He needs to speak for himself. She needs to let him. I hate when spouses do that. Ok if the other person isn't there and I'm asking but don't treat the adult like a kid or they will always act that way and it gets old fast.

my college football star parents from Florida I will never see again...that was a bad scene when he wanted the bacon and she took it off his plate and handed me the plate.

he was a former footballer, and it was not good.

i have not have that too often now, as usually the women are too busy fussing over the fruten-glee fraud (yes I just invented that term)...

Today we had several versions of can't eat that. I think Dr Atkins is back.

I will say that the one couple who had told us in advance about what could not be eaten could not thank us enough for making something different for them.

But the "no bread" crowd is throwing us off. I can't serve eggs 3 days in a row but I can see having to do that in the morning if couple A sees couple B (who asked in advance) getting eggs, they will ask too. 

Then tomorrow is another no carbs, eggs only check in.

So much better when they tell me ahead and I can plan; when Mr. BBQ checked in he was asked if either of them had any food allergies - he said no.  I planned a egg puff pastry  and some wonderful scones not knowing that his girlfriend was gluten intolerant.  So hubby goes to serve them first yesterday morning and she announces that she's gluten intolerant, so she'll just take scrambled eggs.  Well more than half the whole house of 18 was showing up at the same time an I had to scramble to make her her special breakfast and threw off the timing which hubby hates.  I would have changed the order of breakfasts I was serving for the three day weekend and had a fruit plate and a frittata that is gluten free if they had only told me.

I have no issue with the gluten free guests (my husband has to eat gluten and dairy free) so I always have Udi's gluten free white and raisin breads in the freezer so I can always make them scrambled eggs with toast or use the bread for french toast which is great because I make the batter and pour some into a pie plate and then their's is cooked separate, easy and they are VERY HAPPY that they were taken care of.  It's just the springing on us that drives me crazy.

It will be interesting to see how long she cooks for him - IF she even knows how to cook, that is.
