I have lots of cravings when I'm pregnant, but living where I do has helped me keep a handle on them. I may be wanting that ________ with all my being, but is it really worth it to bundle everyone up, drive three hours (round trip) through a blizzard and come home in the wee hours of the morning just to fulfill it? I think not. Last week, however, I had a craving I could fulfill. I WANTED baked cabbage. I had cabbage on hand. It was a healthy option. I baked some to go with supper and happily ate it all as:
1. Karl doesn't do cooked vegetables
2. Heidi thought it looked a little scary, and
3. I didn't think Hannah would be able to chew it, molars are helpful there.
I was pleased with myself. I had actually fulfilled a pregnancy craving (it really doesn't happen very often).
After supper, Karl pulled me aside and whispered sweetly into my ear, "I like it better when you crave ice cream."
Does this mean I get to cash in on that one a bit more often? YES!!!!!
