Seven Things (Severe pregnancy cravings)

A while back a friend of mine, Lori, tagged me and told me it was my turn to make a post about seven things you may not know about me. I've decided to put a little twist on it and make it seven pregnancy cravings I've had in the last few months you may not know about. Here we go:

1. Pickles and peanut butter -- I actually scooped up the peanut butter (chunky, of course) with the pickles.
2. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with potato chips
3. California rolls (with lots of soy sauce)  -- I am drooling right now thinking about these!
4. Hummus with tortilla chips
5. Chocolate ice cream with pretzels crushed on top... lots of pretzels
6. Mashed potatoes
and lastly...
7. Pineapple and Canadian Bacon pizza

Maybe I should have just said salt, salt, and more salt :)


To ease your mind (in case you are already worried about the health of the new baby), I am not eating these things all the time.  And, in fact, I am trying hard to be healthy and take my vitamins.  But what can I say?  I do have an intense desire for all things salty, which is a nice change from my standard desire for all things chocolate!

sooooo.... when were you gonna decide to tell me about your pickles & PB fetish??? Do I need to bring up the fact that, oh maybe a month ago, you told me how gross that is that I can't stop eatng it?!?! .....You disgust me. (just joking, I love you)

Wait a second... I believe I said I ate the pickles with the peanut butter. Never did I mention IN A SANDWICH (that is going too far). But I admit, yes, maybe you eating the pickle-peanut butter sandwich planted a salty thought into my mind :) We are sisters, after all!

Nice combos! Most of those cravings sound pretty good, even to someone who is not pregnant! :)

From one saltaholic to another--try a peanut butter and green olive sand......

Sounds like great cravings to me!! Well, maybe except the pickles and PB!

Well, Susan, I can see the value in both PB&J and green olives -- even eating them together (I may try that today), but I'm not quite sure I am up to the challenge of combining them on one sandwich! Who knows though... I still have 4 months to let the idea germinate!!!

Funny! I always hear peanut butter and pickles in pregnancy legends, but you are the first person I have met in real life who has actually done it. Good for you! :) Well if you read my latest blog entry you know all about my cravings. I am trying to shape up the diet though. I mean hello?! I am growing an actual human being in there!
