Apple pie with cheese - is this normal?
« on: October 10, 2018, 09:07:55 AM »
Some quick background:  My immediate family's become obsessed with cheese over the last 10 years or so.  We had our Thanksgiving gathering a couple of days ago and one of the desserts that someone brought was an apple pie so my mother immediately started bugging the person who was hosting the gathering if she had any cheese to go with it.  Is the normal?  Even remotely normal to put cheese with apple pie?  Nobody I've asked about it has heard about it.

Anyways, the reason I ask is that put me over the edge regarding this cheese obsession.  At these family gatherings, especially the ones my parents host, the main appetizer is always cheese and crackers.  Quite often it's the only appetizer.  My family knows I can't eat cheese without getting sick.  All I can manage is a little bit of cheddar cooked to death on top of hamburgers but even then it's dicey.  Despite knowing that cheese hits my allergies seriously hard, family members still say I should have some.  I've been politely declining and reminding them that I can't have cheese all these years.  But I'm getting fed up with them ignoring that allergy and this railroading cheese with the apple pie seriously pissed me off and I unequivocally stated no, I'm not having cheese with my slice of apple pie, I can't have it, you know I can't have it, and I'm not having it and that's the end of it.  I got my slice of pie sans fromage but my mother got into a snit about it.  The flat out rudeness about systematically not respecting the one food allergy I have for years has finally pissed me off and if it comes up again at the next family gathering, I'm not going to be as polite about it as I have been.

My daughter has a severe peanut allergy and I cant tell you how many holiday family gatherings we have attended and had to address the mixed nut bowls that were seemingly always on display. I feel for you - its basic lack of consideration. Oh and by the way cheese on apple pie seriously??

Apple pie with cheese - is this normal?

Yes, it is normal.  I have seen my Dad do this for as long as I can remember.
It's usually a sharp cheddar that is most preferred.

As a kid I thought it was weird, but I try it from time-to-time now, and it's nice.

Wth?? Iíve never heard of it and Iíve been in Ohio all my life.

Iíve never heard of cheese being served along apples in any dish!! (Except one appetizer at a local restaurant called Marcellaís).

Apple pie and sharp cheddar is delicious.  Same goes for Granny Smiths with a cheddar fondue. Of course you should be able to have your pie anyway you want it without catching flack.
Eddie, go over there and get all of that wood, I need half a tree. Chop that tree.
And Charlie, go get me 2 gallons of gasoline out the shed.

Ok, I guess it is somewhat normal even if uncommon here.  Looking back at Thanksgiving, the cheese being rammed at me with the apple pie at dessert seriously pissed me off because I had to remind my family just a couple hours earlier when I arrived that I couldn't have cheese because they were pushing cheese and crackers at me, which was the only appetizer they had.

My daughter has a severe peanut allergy and I cant tell you how many holiday family gatherings we have attended and had to address the mixed nut bowls that were seemingly always on display. I feel for you - its basic lack of consideration. Oh and by the way cheese on apple pie seriously??

I agree, it is a lack of consideration.  I can only imagine what you go through with the nut bowls, from seeing them out yet again and that "oh brother" sinking feeling.  Peanut allergies are dangerous.  Dairy just makes me sick, but nut allergies can be downright dangerous so I feel for you and your daughter when you arrive at a family gathering and that oversight happens yet again.

@Lightning , next year, EAT the fuckin cheese, puke everywhere and make them spend the holiday in the hospital with you, bet they leave you alone at the next gathering....if you're invited. LOL  Seriously though, thats not cool of them...bummer

I was joking around with a friend of mine after the last family gathering before Thanksgiving that maybe I should take them up on the offer of cheese because they'd never make that mistake again.  On the other hand, with they way they've gone about being oblivious and indifferent all these years, they probably would.  You know, my sister gave me a frigging cheese board as a housewarming present.  Again, I have no idea why, when my whole family knows because I've told them many, many times that because of dairy allergies, cheese is off limits for me.  I put it away intending to use it as a cutting board or a serving tray except I've never had the need arise so it's sat unopened in its original packaging for the last five years and counting.  I have no idea where this obsession my family has with cheese came from or why it started but it's been going on for over 10 years now and I'm so fed up with the "we got the only thing you can't eat again" routine.  I don't know what the next family gathering will be that I make it to since I'm scheduled to work 12 hour shifts over Christmas but I bet it'll be more of the same given how things have been going.

@Lightning , Locate said cheeseboard gift, woodburn "NO DAIRY" on it, drill a few holes to lessen wind resistance, when the next family member offers cheese, put that board upside their cranium, then yell out, "NEXT?".... thats how you make use of a thoughtless gift.  just my opinion...LOL
