Hubby likes to make fun of me — and it’s ONLY during pregnancy that I give him any really good fodder.
- I cry over Mr. Boy’s dirty diapers.
- I become incensed over the most mundane things — like the fact that he doesn’t wipe down the kitchen counter. (actually, that one is pretty justified)
- And, my pregnancy cravings are out. of. control.
I don’t have weird cravings . . . no pickles and ice cream sundaes for this Mama. No, I just crave EVERYTHING I see, hear mentioned, or read about online.
I see a recipe calling for cilantro? Suddenly, I must grow it, cut it, smell it, and use it in every recipe I have.
Someone on Facebook mentions Italian food? I can’t sleep until I’m surrounded by tomato sauce, pasta, and breadsticks.
It’s ridiculous. I can easily have 15-20 “Oh-heavenly-days-I-must-have-that-NOW” cravings each day. My cravings are yet another reason why I meal plan … most of the recipes that I include each week are present because of some craving I’ve had at some point.
What in the world do my pregnancy cravings have to do with $1000? Honestly, not much . . . except for the fact that figuring out the secret craving of one particular Mama can get you the cash.
