My husband and I leave next Thursday (15th) for Jamaica. We just booked it tonight, and got a great deal. I'm mildly concerned over his allergies...but I think we'll be okay. My mom is watching the girls at my house so now all I have to do it bake and pack my freezer. I think it will be a busy week.

first - have fun, and i'm really jealous!
i wanted to say that other than in the fish department, they rely mostly on fresh spices, fruits and vegetables. a lot of their desserts are coconut based (does that cross react with peanuts/nuts, I am not sure). Enjoy all the warmth and tastes!

My husband is not a dessert kind of guy. I guess growing up with treenut and egg (and milk which he outgrew) and a mother who did not try to accomidate his allergies he never really "got into" desserts. He's more a red meat/piizza kind of guy. A little odd since I don't eat meat...buy hey...when it comes to food in our family, we all have unique needs and preferences.

Jamaica's primary language is English (I had no idea before we were looking at this trip). I feel way more comfortable with that. When we went to Mexico in 2005, it was Spanish and there was a bit of a language barrier trying to explain allergies and cross contamination issues. We managed to snag this Jamaica trip online at a cheap blow out price because they had space left (at resort and on direct flight from Saskatoon) with only 1 week notice. Otherwise...we were not even considering Jamaica.

Packing the freezer to get out of this freezer.
:D

Have a wonderful time.

Jerk chicken should be a good option - perhap you can get it done in a pan to avoid cross-contamination on a grill.
