Please tell me why an adult should think it acceptable to only eat certain foods and cause difficulties when a child is not allowed to.I dont eat fish (yuk!) but have eaten a tiny amount if that is what I was presented with.After all I can eat later.
Also sandwiches are not an essential part of a buffet so many other things are less time consuming.
Enjoy YOUR buffet Im sure your family will appreciate what a caring hostess you are even if there are no sandwiches.
But I am worried about your mother's attitude that you would be a bad "hostess". Does she fully understand the seriousness of your son's allergy?
Better a "normal" hostess than a neglectful mother.
Wooligan 2 squares for smoky - 3 squares for HTA
Preemie hats - 2.
I think Pizza, chips and sausage roll might be on the menu for the next family visit.
I can't eat normal bread, but if I'm going somewhere that this might be a problem (bbq can be tricky) then I either eat beforehand or take a couple of pitta bread in my handbag - the fussy eater should be used to doing similar. And even as an adult, I do find it a little frustrating/depressing/difficult sometimes when theres a ton of yummy bread-based stuff on offer that I can't have - goodness knows how a 3 year old would feel!
The shepherds pie / lasagne is a great idea, and this is what I would have normally done but ... said fussy person doesn't eat mince / chopped tomatoes / peas have to be a certain size, etc., etc.
