A family is driving down the motorway when - whoosh - something small goes past them on the inside lane. A bit shaken, they carry on driving when - whoosh - something small, blurred and incredibly fast overtakes them on the median strip. Very shaken, they decide to get off the motorway before one of these mystery fast-moving objects hits them. They come off the motorway at the next exit and decide to continue their journey on quiet country roads. Ten minutes later...whoosh - something speeds towards them on the opposite side of the road. They see a sign for a farmhouse B&B and decide to pull off the road altogether. Perhaps rest will help.
The next morning they are talking with their hosts. The farmer explains that he's been experimentally breeding chickens: 'You see, we love a roast chicken, but there were arguments because I like a leg, my wife likes a leg and our son likes a leg - so I bred three-legged chickens.' The family are amazed! They all like the legs too. 'This is great - what do they taste like?'
'I don't know,' the farmer replied.
'We haven't caught one yet.'

I think food sensitivities are part over exposure and part genetic predisposition or a genetic screw up. I am the youngest of four. None of my siblings have any sensitivities but I do to wheat and casien/whey in all dairy including goat and sheep, which is unusual. My GI doc thinks I have celiacs but since I am not willing to eat gluten for an extended period to find out, we do not know for sure. The genetic screw-up for me? My mom had lupus, had an active flare up while she was pregnant with me and I was almost a month late. They did not figure out that she had lupus until after I was born. My doctor thinks I have some autoimmune issues but my tests are inconclusive, which is normal. It can take 2-10 years to diagnose autoimmune disorders from what I have read. Now add the fact that gluten, whey and caseins are in most processed food that we eat three times a day and you have people with various levels of sensitivities.
Today was my 19th wedding anniversary. In celebration of that and the beginning of Dungeness season, I made a yummy cioppino ad we ate it all. Tons of crab, scallops, clams and mussels in a spicy, garlicky tomato broth. I am ready for bed. Good thing he already got his anniversary happy ending!
