I have to know, did anyone out there really eat pickles and ice cream?
Now normally I do like pickles but really only when I eat a burger or deli sandwich (which I am told I should not be eating now) but the other night I was feeling a little hungry and wanted a snack, so I decided on a pickle straight out of the jar. I also wanted to test this rumor about pregnancy and pickles. I now understand, I don't know what it is about the pickles but I proceeded to eat 4 of them! Now this is really only one pickle (they were spears) but it was 4 different trips to the fridge getting a pickle. I think I like the crunch and the tanginess. I found this strange and satisfying all at the same time. So as I was enjoying my pickles I started thinking about eating them with ice cream- just so you know it did not sound good at all. I then started thinking about if I had to eat them with ice cream what kind would it be? I decided that it would be a Chocolate Coffee flavor, my reasoning behind this is that I enjoy Chocolate ice cream but the coffee flavor would maybe be so strong that it would cover up the pickle flavor and I could pretend that the pickles were actually chocolate chips.
Now I used to be a cheeseburger connoisseur but now it seems that the baby is not a fan. I got the cheeseburger at O'Charley's the other day and only could eat two bites of it because it was a huge pile of grease. Then we went to Cheeseburger in Paradise yesterday and I normally love the Not Too Particular Not Too Pressed burger (burger with Velveeta, pickles, and mayo on toasted bread, then grilled) but that did not sound good at all- yet I wanted to try this cheeseburger thing again. I decided on a salad with grilled steak, which was wonderful, and then I ordered some mini cheeseburgers to split with my lovely sister in law- the verdict is that I should NOT eat cheeseburgers. I just can't be stubborn and keep ordering them!!
Also I have noticed that I keep choosing healthy options, that is when I feel like eating. Fruits and veggies have always been a favorite but now those are my cravings, which is good. I think that your body has a way of letting you know what you need during these months, the hard part is listening.
I had a friend who when she was pregnant had a few break downs over her food when she ordered at fast food joints, I myself admit that I have had an emotional food breakdown...I cried because Shane did not make my hash browns properly. It was a bad day what can I say.
My question to all of you mothers- What did you crave?
My question to everyone- If you had to eat pickles and ice cream what flavor would the ice cream be?!
