I’m Back, And So Is Monday Mashup…Win a free DFD t-shirt!
Our dye-free summer vacation is over, and I’m completely exhausted. It’s taking all I have to get just this one tiny blog post out today, much less tackle the mounds of laundry. I will write about our adventures in Food Land this Thursday…you may be surprised by the reactions we experienced. But today’s post is about a giveaway, and a chance to share your experience.
Today I’ll keep it simple and short – I’m bringing back “Monday Mashup”, on a monthly basis, on the first Monday of each month. I’ll ask you a question and you can leave your answer with your blog URL in a comment. We all get to share our experience, and more people get introduced to your blog, too. If you don’t have a blog, go start one. Just kidding, but please feel free to answer the question anyway. Everyone’s stories are valuable.
To kick off this new monthly feature, I’m giving away some free DFD “This is me on food dye!” t-shirts. This funny shirt was designed by children’s book illustrator, Sheila Aldridge, exclusively for DFD readers. Perfect for back to school time. I’ll randomly select THREE commenters from THIS thread and send them a free shirt. The giveaway ends tonight at Midnight (Eastern Standard Time).
My question today is about eating out. Whether you were traveling far away or just having an easy dinner out, I want to know –
What was your *best* experience eating out with your dye-sensitive kids? Tell us the name of the place, the foods and drinks you chose, and anything noteworthy about the place or occasion. Did you learn anything new?
What was your *worst* experience eating out with your dye-sensitive kids? Again, give the name of the restaurant, the foods and drinks you chose, etc. For this one, please describe the reaction(s) your family experienced.
Don’t have kids, but maybe you or another adult in your family react to synthetic food dyes? Please, share your stories! It’s not always about kids around here…I have a severe reaction to petroleum additives, too.
I like this set of questions because I am looking forward to hearing what others have experienced, and I always learn something from what other people are doing. I hope you find some small comfort in reading about others’ experiences, and know that you are not alone.
Lay it on me.
