Food Allergies

Who would have thought that I would start developing (or realizing) I have food allergies at the ripe age of 23?!  Back in the fall of last year I found out I'm allergic to touching raw butternut squash and now (I think) I'm allergic to capers.  Kristina and I cooked dinner Wednesday night and after we ate I noticed a red, itchy rash on my elbow.  Then Jenna noticed my eye was red.  I thought maybe something just irritated it, so I went to bed.  When I woke up in the morning my eye lids were swollen up really big and my elbows/knees had red rashes on them.  It was so scary.  Capers are the only thing out of the ordinary that was in the recipe.  Although I'm not 100% sure it was them...I'm not taking any chances.  Definitely won't see me coming close to those things!

  1. Yea, well at least the reaction was mild and didn't cause your throat or esophagus to swell!!! (knock on wood as I write)
