    Exclamation I need quick replies on this one *urgent*

    ok so i was told im not allowed to have bbq's and i need to know why urgently cos my mil is asking me why i cant have them (having one for dinner tonight) and i NEED to tell her why.

    why can't i have bbq's. if there is no reason why i cant have one just give me a made up excuse cos my bil is cooking (no hygiene) and he has NOT washed his hands after patting the dogs and being licked by them before handling the meat (note: i can not tell my mill this is the reason- super sensitive and he will yell and scream and cause hell for me)


    HELP ME PLEASE. LIE IF YOU NEED!!! as long as it is a believable excuse

    Pretty sure you can eat BBQed food when pregnant, but if you want an excuse you could tell them that the charring that happens on the BBQ is carcinogenic and you don't want to potentially harm the baby.

    Made up reason, because there really is no reason you can't have a BBQ... The fact that there are more than one type of meat being cooked on the hotplate can mean there is an increased risk of listeria?

    Agree with the above. Or you could say that the smell of the meat is making you feel ill and just eat a salad instead?

    BBQ meat is carcinogenic and is harmful to unborn babies ( blackened meat is carcinogenic but is not a direct risk to pregnant women but they don't need to know that!)

    Huh? I'd just be saying the smell makes you feel nauseous.

    Isn't your MIL going to just think your a weird if you make up that you cant eat bbq's when she knows full well most other pregnant women eat bbq's?

    ^^^ got with cross contamination risk. Or that the hot plate being outside is 'unsanitary' by pregnancy standards. Or that you can't have mince type meat products (sausages) because the processing equipment isn't a guarantee that it'll be totally clean & say you don't eat well done steak & chops (or whatever else) as a matter of preference.

    None of the above is exactly true, but I guess kinda plausible.

    OR when my grandma puts questionable food in front of me I fein being full/feeling sick/complain of heart burn so I just want to eat some bread...
