And so the weird cravings begin....
For the past 6 1/2 months I haven't really been craving anything unusual or odd, which is odd in and of itself since I am pregnant. Sure, I developed a sudden need to drink orange juice every day and I am now buying Snyder's Honey Mustard and Onion pretzel bits every week at the store, but that isn't so bad. At least I'm not craving wacky things like pickles and ice cream, together. (Actually, I used to like pickles, until my 1st pregnancy and now I hate them. Weird).
And then it hit me tonight. We were driving home from Target and I suddenly wanted, no NEEDED apple-cinnamon pancakes. It was so strange. I was thinking that I'd just have a bowl of cereal for dinner (we had a big lunch w/ the in-laws), when all of a sudden I WANTED PANCAKES.
There would be no talking me out of making breakfast items for my dinner. Nope, this was a full-blown pregnant craving. I WAS HAVING PANCAKES. NO MATTER WHAT.
So, I came home, mixed up the pancake batter, added some grated fresh apple and some cinnamon and proceeded to make a ton of pancakes.
I ate 5. With butter and syrup (ok, it was "I can't believe it's not butter"....but only because I ran out of real butter yesterday). And a glass of skim milk. A big glass. It was delish!
And the best part....I have leftover pancakes for breakfast tomorrow.
