Am I the only one that can't seem to get enough salt on stuff? I'm telling you I'm in love with salt right now. I even salted my pickles the other day. Now I'm eating my cucumbers and lime juice... and I can't get enough salt on them... If I keep this up my fingers are going to be soooo swollen.

I'm with you! The other day I had 3 pickles and as I was munching on them I looked at the back of the jar. Each pickle is about 14% of the daily allowance...that means I had 42% of my salt intake in about 5 minutes. Yikes!<br>

I'm with you! I salt EVERYTHING now...and I crave things with vinegar and salt - pickles, salad with italian dressing (and salt)... I'm trying to drink enough water to balance it out, but I'm not sure I'm keeping up!

That's it, you ladies talked me into it... I'm SO going to have a pickle at lunch.<br><br>
Along with my leftover caribou crock-pot roast, that was made with a little picke juice.<br><br>
And maybe another pickle for dessert.<br><br>
I'm just a walking pregnancy cliche.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Your not a cliche until you sit down and polish off a whole jar of pickles at one sitting <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: I've done it a few times... Not so proud of myself... but they were Mt. Olive brand... They always have the little tag about being a NC product... so it can't be that bad.

Yup, and it was delicious <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy">. Crock-Potted with carrots and onions and pickle juice and A-1 and a little beef broth.<br><br>
Gosh, I wish I hadn't polished it off for lunch. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Just the way it sounds... Slice some cucumbers squeeze lime on them (fresh lime much better than the bottled stuff) And salt to liking. Also really good if you add hot sauce (not much) to them too.
