Just a reminder to maybe make an extra portion of those favourite entrees.
We're getting into the season of impromptu dinner invitations and it's great to be able to grab a pizza and dessert and go.

We went to a BBQ this weekend and it was great to be able to just say, Yes. I knew that I could put a meal with her favourites together with no notice. :)

Great suggestion. I honestly didn't think of that.

Much agreed! Nothing feels better than getting to do something as spontaneous and "normal" as accepting such an invite.
Thanks, Susan.

"Grab a pizza and go", what kind do you make? I see your DD has the same allergies as mine, so I'm curious! Link me please, or let me know what other things you make ahead of time for events like this (thanks so much),

I like to make "safe" cupcakes for my youngest son (severe egg allergy) and freeze them so when he is invited to a birthday party I can just grab out a cupcake and send it with him.

We make our own pizza, I'll try to print the recipe later. We use Follow Your Heart Vegan Gourmet Cheese Alternative (I wish they came up with a shorter name).

Lately my daughter is more into her lasagna which I make in large quantity and freeze in 2" squares for meals.

I am finding that we can often accept dinner invitations when the entre is a basic piece of meat that is roasted. We'll pick up a safe margarine. I don't trust BBQ's, ketchup bottles (little ones often touch the food with the mouth/spout) jars of condiments etc. I have many small leak proof containers and I can simply fill them with the appropriate condiments for dd.

Great suggestion!

We have individually frozen dinner buns, cupcakes, banana cake etc. For a BBQ this weekend we brought safe buns as the hot dogs were safe.
