Probably the number one thing pregnancy is known for is the cravings. So far, there have not been too many weird things that I crave (though once I ate a whole jar of green olives). My main problem has been TV commercials. Everytime a new food item pops up, I feel like I have to have it. Lately I have taken to looking away, or concentrating on something else when commercials come on so that I won’t have to worry about craving a huge Big Mac with extra-large fries and a Coke!
One of the things I have given in to however, is Baklava. I figured since I have already made this twice (in the last 7 days), I ought to share it with you. The first time I made Baklava was for Valentine’s day last week. I thought it was a special dessert that went perfectly with the kabobs and humus that Mike and I were having for dinner that night. What I didn’t know was how much I would love it. The kind of love that makes you wonder where this has been your whole life. I proceeded to have it for breakfast for the rest of the week. I ended up taking some of the dessert to work so that I wouldn’t eat any more of it.
But now, I’ve made it again. Luckily, this time I have another social function that I can take leftovers too as well…assuming I don’t eat the whole tray over the next few hours.
I only made one tiny adjustment to the recipe…instead of filling the pastry with a mix of walnuts and almonds, I only used walnuts, because for the second time in a row, I forgot to purchase almonds. Um yes…I also have a severe case of pregnancy brain.
What is the craziest craving you have had, or experienced a friend having?
