2015-06-12 Fabulous Food Allergy Friday

Bancroft Tower, Worcester, MA
Bancroft Tower, Worcester, MA. This is a much better tribute to a dead friend than a bench.

As much as I (Mary Kate) want to, I will not make fun of Massachusetts pronunciations of their own towns. I mean, I type the name of the state wrong nearly every time, so … ah, spell check. You are a wonderful invention.

ANYWAY. Here are some links for this week:

Check out this Vintage Kitchens pinboard. If you like architecture or cool-looking places, check out the rest of Mike Jackson’s pinboards, too, as they are amazing. Pinterest really can be more than recipes and diet tips, as Karen Nyberg posts awesome space photos from space. (I have noticed a distinct increase in pinned ads or paid for pins. That is annoying. Understandable, but annoying.) You can also follow either me or Denise (or both!).

Here is a theoretically way better way to peel a mango. I have not tried this yet, but I should, and soon.

This week has been a bit off for me. I ended up having to use my epi-pen and head to the ER in an ambulance after eating food that should have been safe.  Based on what I ate, it’s possible I have a new food allergy. I was not as prepared as I should have been, and I want to remind people to have a plan. In case you didn’t see the links Mary Kate posted on our Facebook page, go check them out

Also, since there was an study showing that people misuse their epi-pens, go check out this article which also has a list of training videos for different auto-injectors

Have a good weekend and be careful out there!
