Prawns are just big shrimp, right? NO lobster? I love lobster.

Up until about a year ago, I was very afraid that I was allergic to shellfish - both my brother and sister are - in the trip to hospital sort of way. I finally decided I knew where the hospitals were, and gave it a try. Turns out I love it! I'm working my way through trying everything, so I'm sure I'll get to it soon. *g*

My mom developed an allergy to shellfish:( I love it myself, but not enough to die for.

Oh, you will love lobster!!! I think it's my fave, even over king crab. :)

Food allergies suck. When I was a kid, I was told I was allergic to a bunch of things, but not enough to warrant a trip to the hospital, so I ate the foods anyway. :)

I used to get an itchy throat when I ate seafood, but that has disappeared. Yay for outgrowing allergies!

I do kinda have issues with lobster, but they are my own quirks, I don't want to ruin it for anyone else *g* I'm sure I'll get to it one day.

No it's not! I wonder what the vegetarian list would look like? They do get some of the best stuff from the list - ice cream, paella (that's how I make it anyways), chocolate, pancakes... okay, now I'm hungry!
