Obviously we aren't catering to her. Food allergies we would certainly make
allowances for. Any dietary restrictions, we'd make allowances for. This
level of pickiness, however, is just plain ridiculous.

Oh, and I didn't mean to sound so gleeful in my original post about the
cheeses I'd bought which she won't eat. I honestly didn't know until I
talked with Scott last night *after* I'd bought cheeses for us to snack on
that she would only eat mild cheddar. Sorry, but I didn't buy mild cheddar.

I'm fussy about not liking raw veggies. It's not so much the taste as it is
a texture thing with me. But I'll eat just about any cooked veggie there
is. Guess it's a good thing I didn't plan to bring artichoke hearts... oh
wait, I have a jar of them I could take with me
