amo_mea_filiis. Posted October 31, 2012 Share Posted October 31, 2012 My father informed me that we will be attending thanksgiving dinner with them. His wife has comments for me EVERY SINGLE visit. Some related to homeschooling, some our routines (her and i have never lived together; when we were in my fathers basement, it was completely separate, and we both worked a lot), some my weight. She thinks she could "fix ds in a month." This resturant we're going to is family style. We order together and big platters are brought to the table. It's italian family style, so lots of bread, pasta, and breadcrumbs for everything. I can't have gluten and i am sick and tired of her comments related to everything, especially weight and food. I have very slowly been losing weight since 2011, she does not seem to be. She has many pounds on me, and the comments are just beyond irritating now. Should i call ahead to the resturant and see if they can make a small dish of something gluten free? Or should i insist that the table order the pasta gluten free (i know this resturant has gf pasta, we were just there in august)? I hesitate ordering gf for the table because she will comment about how gross it is, and will laugh and snicker about every thing i do after that. If i can get the pasta gf without anyone knowing, they will not know the difference, but i dont know how to go about that. I dont need to stuff myself with this dinner, but even a little gluten throws me off for days, and it hurts. What should i do? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
