Tara, you just can't do much about
people who think the world revolves around them. Sometimes when people do this to me, I just say, "I could eat that, but it would give me bloody diarrhea." Something about
those last two words seems to back people off. Of course, you can't do that with people you want to maintain any sort of relationship with, and certainly not your mother-in-law!
You might consider eating before you go. Then when she wants to order food, you can just say, "Oh, none for me, thanks, I've already eaten."
