People who bring their own food

My dear sister has become somewhat serious with someone so our families have began socializing quite often. Well, there is a sister who is not a child(young teen) has no health concerns or allergy problems and yet she brings her own food with her . A cheese sandwich or worse take out Mcnuggets. Now it is insulting enough when I have worked hard on making nice a meal. But it is extremely embarrassing when we have made reservations at a nice restaurant. Once a server even asked " I am sure our chef can accommodate any special needs you have miss" When she rudely said "I dont like it here" He asked to at least take her nuggets to the back to "heat" them and brought them back plated beautifully so the rest of us didnt have to look at the take out bag. SHe took the garnish and tossed on the table. It is alll I can do to not say something!!!! I am tired of including in her celebrations that use to be so special. How do people survive without screaming????
