yes, apparently some children have such terrible allergies that even just inhaling the smell of peanuts or touching a hand that has touched peanuts prompts an anaphylactic reaction, so i assume the banning is because of this. it's a sad outcome because it limits the food choices of non-allergic children...i'm just glad it hasn't gone to this extent in the UK...yet.

It's not banned in all US schools, yet. I don't know if it's state or what, that are making the decisions about it.

My mom had to try to make ends meet, and what she did (we're talking sixties here) was take care of other military wives' kids so she could be home with her own.

She provided, every day, breakfast and lunch for not only us girls (3-4 depending on what year you're talking about), but another 2-5 kids. Mostly pre-school age.

Breakfast was always cereal of some sort. In the winter it was often Gerber's baby oatmeal, which was in a dried carton made up with powdered milk, boiling water, and sugar (and karo for the babies she may have been caring for). In the summer it was raisin bran or rice crispies (never the sugar cereals that were coming in fashion then). My next youngest sis and I hated milk (still do) so this was awful to us.

Lunch was PB&J or a bologna-type sandwich (olive loaf, etc). We'd get the treat of a few potato chips, and plenty of carrot and celery sticks, some fruit, and an unfrosted cupcake.

WHen I say lunch was that, I mean it was for the most part. Quite often we had leftover chili, stews, and home made soups, not to mention those old time favorites of Liptions Noodle Soup (still a favorite of mine) or Cambell's anying on cold days.

Well things dad made seemed to always end up with beer as an ingredient. He'd start on something early and by mid-day he'd had a few too many and it'd ultimately end up in whatever he'd be making. Ultimately though, I was a very happy child when he'd try to create something because that meant it would be a Mickey D's (McDonalds) night .

Mom was a wonderful cook. She was from the South and really knew how to cook. She'd give Rachel Ray a run for her money because she'd be away from the house and rush home and within 30 minutes you'd have a huge spread laying out on the table.

My favorite foods she made me: Chop Suey, Dressing......any kind whether it be Sage, Oyser or an herb dressing, Wilted Lettuce, Fried Chicken, Goulash, Homemade Chicken & Noodles over Mashed Potatoes, etc.........I could go on and on and on.

I should make an amendment to my statement above about dad.......one thing he never played around with was his smoking of meat. He had his own homemade smoke house in his garage that he made out of an old refrigertor. You can imagine the looks he got when people would walk in and see this refrigerator sticking in the middle of the wall in his garage kitchen. He was an amazing smoker. I will truely miss his smoked turkey for as long as I live. Especially, at holiday time.

Rest in Peace Mom & Dad

Se non supporta il calore, vattene dalla cucina!
