Food, glorious food

In the first trimester, my ice cream of choice was always Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia. Second trimester – I am all about Haagan Daz coffee ice cream. When I eat it, Alejandro gets excited and starts wiggling. I know the feeling. :)

Things I have craved:

-Asian food, varying from Asiana Noodle House’s tom yum soup to cheap, not-very-good lo mein

-Cheesecake with cherries. Thanks to both Meg and Raina, this one has been addressed twice! :)

– Pasta. In many forms, but in the beginning when I was sick a lot, I craved big bowls of plain ol’ pasta, sometimes with a little butter, oil, or parmesan…but sometimes just plain pasta cooked in salty water.

-Lately, I have been really deeply into Annie’s macaroni and cheese. The kind that rips off Kraft, with the little straight elbow noodles and orange cheese and everything, but not as flourescent and with actual goodness. I ate an entire box the other day.

– Smoothies with coconut milk.

– Blueberries.

– Veggie subs – or that one time, the spicy, oil-and-vinegary, veggie-tastic sandwich from City Market that basically made my entire day and sent me into fits of ecstasy. Really, that was the best sandwich experience EVER.

– vanilla yogurt with fruit (I thaw frozen peaches, berries, etc. and mix them in)

-pizza…oddly, Pizza Hut pizza has come up more than once. Before being pregnant, it had been probably a year since I had had Pizza Hut pizza.

– Coke. Oooooh Coke. Never a lot at once, but a little bit of Coke makes me very, very happy.

– movie popcorn. Not regular popcorn, MOVIE POPCORN.

– potatoes. Particular fried ones. Particularly particularly the ones Shawn makes.  Also, tonight Ryan made me smashed potatoes with garlic, fresh dill, salt and pepper, and cottage cheese. SO GOOD. Ooooh potatoes.

-grapefruit. Also dilly beans. Oh and raspberries. I’m getting hungry, it’s time to stop.

Tonight, I randomly want a deviled egg. It turns out, I really like eating in general. ;) I haven’t wanted anything particularly bizarre, just…a whole lot of food. Eating was tricky for a while, and I’m sometimes picky – but if i find the right food, eating is totally great. Oh hey, I think my egg is boiled enough to devil now. See ya!

    Sarah… are your cravings usually fulfilled by those around you? This whole entry almost makes me wish that *I* was pregnant. ;-)

    I have so many blueberries in the freezer, I’ll gladly bring you some when next we come to Burlington. Also other berries, if you desire.

    I advise you to use this opportunity to its fullest… sending dear hubby out very late at night for whatever your little heart desires… since after baby arrives he will be as exhausted as you, and might simply laugh at your request, turn over, and go back to sleep! On second thought, this is totally-devoted-Ryan we’re talking about… he’ll probably do those middle-of-the-night nursings for you;-) Enjoy this exciting and blessed time!!
