Fun fact; I am severally allergic to Turkey. I have been since I was a little girl. My mom chalked it up to the flu every holiday we had.
As I became an adult lying on the bathroom floors of my in-laws praying the Lord would soon take me, I decided to get allergy tested.
I am such joy to have over, and I bring festivity if I am eating at another’s house. So yes I am allergic to Turkey. I have to be very careful going to Potlucks. A lot of people like to substitute Turkey for Hamburger.
As well my list of allergies goes on, and on. All very serious life threatening, anaphylactic reactions. Jolly right! Hall out the Holly, wait I might be allergic.
Well I tell you this it makes it very hard for me to farctate at all. I honestly think of it as a good way to not over indulge. Now I do miss strawberries, and a lot of chocolate has tree nuts (I adore chocolate). So you win some, and you lose some. The older I get the more allergies that I get too.
I will say I am trying hard not to hold a resentment with my mom for not catching on to my Turkey allergy, I mean come on 3 times a year I was deathly ill. 😂😊. Those were the days you just put a bandaid on everything. I am grateful I got it figured out in my adult life. Hey you wanna have me over for great big giant dinner, and watch how I can only eat a dinner roll. It is quite the show 😂👩🍳
You learn to roll with the punches, thank God I love ham. It is my favorite. Turkey is overrated anyways. Blessings all, and stay safe this Thanksgiving!
