While I was pregnant all I wanted was chocolate, milk, and steak. Occasionally hamburgers too. And if I smelled garlic? I thought something had died it smelled so bad to me. I joked that I was like a vampire. My husband cooked something with garlic in it early on in my pregnancy and I completely freaked out and ran around our place opening all the windows and lighting candles.
Yesterday my friend TC brought Anthony and I some lunch. We decided to split a giant Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Egg for dessert. I LOVE peanut butter cups. I ate those all while pregnant. Pregnant or not, I love me some Reeses.
We cut into the egg. It looked really yummy. It wasn't until after it was in my mouth that I realized I hadn't had any chocolate since I had the baby.
I can only imagine the expression on my face as I realized just how rich that egg was. The chocolate was too much for me to handle. It was so bad that for my next bite I just ate the peanut butter part. That was awful too. Too much! So sweet!
I decided that the giant egg was completely unnecessary. I believe it has "cured" me of my peanut butter cup cravings. FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR. Yep. Don't believe me? I immediately went into my freezer, dug out my stash of frozen peanut butter cups and gave them to my friend TC. I GAVE AWAY my peanut butter cups.
I don't want to see another peanut butter cup until the pumpkins are out for Halloween. Even then I might not want any.
Then last night for dinner Anthony made eggplant parmesan. I walked into the kitchen, looked over at the toaster oven and said "oh wow, that smells good." Guess what it was? Garlic bread.
I ate two pieces. :)
