Food Cravings - Page 7
I must be in need of Vitamin C because I woke up craving a tall glass of OJ, so we went out for breakfast. I picked up a giant grapefruit while we were grocery shopping...just felt like I might want it later. I just ate a quarter of it like a raptor and it was the sweetest, most juicy, delicious grapefruit I've ever tasted. I normally don't even care for grapefruit.
I've found that I've been craving OJ occasionally too, which I never cared about one way or another before.
Oooh yes, I had the best chopped salad last night! Grilled chicken, mozzarella, Iceburg, garbanzo beans, tomatoes, pepperoncini, avocado, in a lemon vinaigrette! It was perfect!
nettlesoup - Do you have a crock pot? That's how I make all of my roasts. I also make Japanese beef curry in there a few times a month because it makes so much extra for freezing!
cmu204 - What goes in the scrambled eggs and rice? I make soft scrambled eggs every morning, but do you just mix in plain rice? Also, I am glad to hear that having a craving satisfied is like scratching a hard-to-reach itch for others. I always feel so ridiculous as I am moaning delight through bites and telling my husband that he rocks for going to Publix and buying XYZ food at midnight for me.
Yesterday's big want/need was a sub sandwich from Publix. It was freaking awesome. Oh, the sweet thin roasted turkey and the smoky provolone cheese and the crunchy lettuce with the tangy vinegar....oh, boy, even a 12" was barely enough! To be fair, this is one of the first things I have been able to eat since the hellacious stomach flu that only I fell prey to this weekend. I think I am making up for lost calories. I feel for you ladies with HG, because I only suffered 48 hours with it, but boy, oh boy, that was more than enough for me!
Cooking food is one of my few hobbies (alongside knitting and sewing, can I get a what what!), so every time I visit this thread, I become inspired by what you ladies are craving!
When I was a kid, my stepdad used to make ham, sausage, eggs and rice for Sunday breakfast -- he is from the American South -- so this is one of my "comfort food" meals. I especially love it with fried green tomatoes on the side.
I'm having a terrible time with cravings right now. Firstly I'm really craving sandwiches, particularly a sausage sandwich with ketchup. The problem is that I'm gluten intolerant so it will probably result in mouth ulcers and constipation. But I want one anyway. I would love a cheese and tomato pizza as well, that would be great.
But my weirder craving is coffee. I have never been a coffee drinker and don't even really like it; I've always been a tea drinker. But since becoming pregnant I can't face the idea of drinking tea, yet I really want a latte! What's that all about?
