    Default Easter Sunday Brunch--help!

    Hello!

    Well, my boyfriend and I will be going to my parents house for Easter. For us this is not a religious holiday just an excuse to hang out with my parents who live in a different state.

    Anyways, my mom just called to tell me that she'll be taking us to Sunday brunch at the hotel where my dad works. I am really nervous that i will not be able to eat ANYTHING.

    They are all omnivores and my BF is a veg but not a vegan [he adores eggs and cheese]

    Any advice for how to handle this weekend?

    I'll take any help I can get.

    THANKS

    Maybe you could call ahead in the next day or so, and see what the kitchen can prepare for you if there isn't already some vegan choices on the menu?

    I'd make/bring my own food if I were you, that way you can be sure that it's made properly and doesn't get contaminated with non-vegan food. From my own experience, I don't trust omnis in situations like that.

    No offense to your advice, Roxy.

    yeah that sounds smart. I am worried to irritate my parents but maybe I can just eat before we go or something. I'd really only be there for the company anyways. ...

    Or you may find that if you phone ahead you can get the hotel to make you something relatively straightforward, such as a "fruit plate". That way you could eat something at the same time as the others, to be sociable.

    i like this idea. i dont want to like, stand out, too much. and i dont want to make my parents feel awkward. i dont think it'll be a big a problem as i originally thought...

    I'm sure it will be fine - the main thing that can be awkward when you're with parents and people is if you have to negotiate a special meal on the spot, I find. If you ask in advance it's usually OK.

    I don't know if it's the same where you are but a lot of hotels and places seem to be getting used to people asking for unusual stuff as so many people are on peculiar "diets" at the moment. They often seem to be at a loss as to what to make if you say "anything vegan" though so if you specify something such "a plate of vegetables with no butter" it makes life easier for them
