Cravings to the MAXX

I can honestly say that other than peanut butter crunch cereal, I didn't have many definitive cravings with Anson.  With Cupcake on the other hand, watch out!!  She is very opinionated about what I eat and when it's something she likes, she'll kick up a storm.  However, if she doesn't, I get sick almost instantly.

Things we love or have loved:
spinach salads with honey mustard dressing
breakfast sandwiches
Chef Boyardi Ravioli
progresso chicken noodle soup
vegetable soup
refried beans
green tobasco sauce
cream cheese
chai tea
grape nuts
almonds and cashews
beef pot pie (yes, the really cheap ones)
Italian b.m.t. subway sandwiches with everything and extra jalapenos
V8 vegetable juice

I have to have eggs and tomatoes every morning in some variation.  The first time I had a craving for this combination, I was out for a walk with Anson and started salivating.  I ate four eggs and a whole tomato atop two pieces of toast and I literally moaned through the whole thing.  It was that good.  I have had jars of pickles for lunch and nothing else.  One day, I had a craving for a tostada with refriend beans, tomatoes and green tobasco and made that very thing for dinner and ate until I was blue.  Did I mention she loves tomatoes?  Mmmm...  I wake up every single night without fail and have to have a drink of milk, it's so funny.    The things I like are not strictly confined to this list, these are just the things I crave.

Things we detest or have detested:
Meat, with the exception of bacon and beef (occasionally)
Cheese (We're warming back up this one)
brussel sprouts
sweets (excluding pop tarts, sugary cereal and occasionally chocolate)
sweet potatoes
peanut butter
most fruit (let's be honest)

It is so strange to dislike things that I usually love!  Like I said though, she has a strong opinion about her likes and dislikes.  If I attempt to eat any one of these things, it's instant nausea.  I'm just grateful for the things I can eat.  It was touch and go in the beginning and nothing sounded good.


that's what she said...
