PMS: Tell it Like It Is. Your cravings, Babe (Part 2)

Recommended Posts

Well, if you don't mind diverting from the PMS theme for just a moment, when I was pregnant with my first I had really awful, lose 25 pounds morning sickness. The day I felt well enough to eat a piece of toast, my ex-husband tried to nick a piece and I smacked his hand without thought.

And despite my healthy sustainable soap box, with my second it was onion rings dipped in chocolate shake. EVERY DAY.

I haven't seen this thread in awhile. I've not been posting on it, because my cravings are boring and repetitive. Beef, beer, bourbon, chocolate. How many times can I post "Cheeseburgers. Lots of them, and stout."

This month, though...I just crave food, and a load of it. I'm eating like I'm pregnant (no way, never, hell no, nuh uh). This morning, a fast bite before work, just to stablize the old blood sugar, a pile of turkey deli meat, a chunk of sharp cheddar, and a torpedo roll, eaten as is, not in a sandwich or anything. Lunch, at 11:30 was a burrito made with leftover beans, some corn, cheese, onions, stuff, sauces, hot peppers, sour cream, more stuff...but the tortilla was one of those kind that doubles as a market umbrella. So, that should be satisfying, right? My stomach was growling about 20 minutes ago, so I just ate a bowl of last night's leftover rigationi abruzze (did I spell that right? The kind with sausage and hot peppers). Then I topped it up with a generous handful of little ginger cookies, and a glass of milk. I SHOULD be comatose, or dead or something. I'm not, because now I'm planning dinner.

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

A couple days ago I snarfed down most of a bag of cheese twists, the puffy kind. A large bag. It was store brand, not even Cheetos. I followed up with pate and melba crackers.

Um, I really want a pimento cheese grilled cheese sandwich. Baked beans, the really good home-made kind, sweet, smoky and spicy, with a load of black pepper, and grilled hot dog pieces floating in them. (This is usually the day-after-the-barbecue style). Espresso brownies. Jet-black bitter, kick-in-the-face dark beer, like the kind that makes Guinness look like lemonade.

I've been fantasizing about these foods. Good thing I'm having a barbecue this weekend, I've got some of those bases covered. I might just make a batch of pimento cheese, just cuz.

Fritos. They’re usually pretty gross to me. 
  Cheesecake with a super buttery gram cracker crust. 
 Apple slices with a ton of peanut butter. 
Lays dipped in ketchup. 
Old Amsterdam Gouda 18 months. 
Fresh blackberries. 


No wonder I’m concerned about my diet!! 🙄😂
