It is difficult getting jobs when you are younger that don't involve food. I could never work at an ice cream stand (like my mom did when she was in high school during the summer), and I could never work in a cafe. There are way too many nuts everywhere! When I was 16 years old, this cut down on many jobs that I could get. I was a camp counselor and a hostess at an Italian restaurant for most of the summers throughout high school and college.
The other night when I was at work, one of the owners was answering a question about pine nuts in the pesto and he said "We don't put pine nuts in our pesto...ya know...everyone is allergic to nuts these days!" I was impressed with his awareness of this growing concern, and glad to know there were no nuts!
