Cravings!

Okay, ladies, make me feel like I'm not alone.

I NEED-
A fried chicken sandwich. . preferably Chick Fil A or that new Wendy's Asiago Ranch one.
White chicken enchiladas
Mozzarella toast
Taco Bell's Baja sauce

I have a BBQ-ranch chicken pizza in the oven with french-fried onions and pineapple because it's the only thing I had on hand that sounded remotely good. But I seriously need that Baja sauce. I'm going to dream about it, I know it.

You are not alone Taylor! Your list reminds me a lot of the types of things/flavors I craved with DD. Smile

I've been needing:
sweet kids cereal
about anything covered in chocolate/chocolate flavored
bagels with cream cheese.

I've been enjoying salads and certain veggies a lot, but I haven't been dreaming about them like the above list.

Taylor -
I am having similar cravings to you. I love the Wendy's Spicy Chicken Sandwich and wish there was a Chick-Fil-A around here. Sometimes I crave the Buffalo Wild Wings boneless wings as well, preferably with a spicy asian sauce. We definitely love Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas and will definitely make our own this week. I also love BBQ chicken pizza, though we haven't been able to find one around here and would have to make it from scratch.

Other cravings - steamed dumplings, dan dan noodles, chicken pad thai, tacos, queso dipping sauce and chips....

Since the nausea has abated some I have actually been able to eat somewhat healthier - Chobani yogurt, fruits, etc. But (not to brag), I need the calories...

I haven't had a lot of cravings yet, but anything with fruit in it sounds amazing! I've also been wanting a lot of pizza, so I guess those two cravings counter-balance each other, huh Lol

but I really haven't had a lot of craving just if I see something or someone says something then I have to get it and I will not stop thinking about it till I do get it!

Patricia- WHAT?! Since when??? It comes on the Gordita crunch. What I do is order a chicken/steak quesadilla and get Baja/Gordita sauce on it instead of that jalapeno sauce. OMG it's amazing.

I had Jason go get me a Monterey Ranch chicken sandwich from Wendy's with bacon on it. It was delicious.

I crave pizza every pregnancy. And for me, this one is weird because I have the worst sweet tooth and now I don't. If I want something sweet, it's usually Jello (I only buy sugar free and now I'm so used to it, I can't stand the sugar one) or cut up fruit with Marzetti's Poppyseed dressing- that stuff is like crack.

Oh yeah and we're getting a Buffalo Wild Wings! It should open within the next month or two. I live in a micropolis in Tennesee. Locals call it a "city" but I grew up in Houston so no, it's not. We don't have a Target or a shopping mall and if you can't find it at Walmart here, you'll have to order it online.

I don't really have many cravings right now...I just have to have my daily dose of chocolate. Lately I've just been eating chocolate chips. I wish I was craving salad or something better, though. I did crave lasagna the other day, so I made it for dinner--and it was DELICIOUS!!!

You should ask them, they may not just have that specific taco! It took some detective work to get the high school workers to even tell me what sauce was on the regular Gordita and it's Baja. Now they regret it because I add it to EVERYTHING and then get an extra cup of it on the side. I hated Taco Bell until I discovered this.

yeah no they don't because when I ordered it they said they don't make that chalupa because they don't carry the baja sauce.

I would be heartbroken!!!! That's the only reason I go there!

Wendy's pisses me off too. They took EVERYTHING good off the value menu- regular chicken nuggets, Jr Bacon Cheeseburger. . and some of the items on their "Value" Menu are actually 1.29-1.79 but they don't tell you. And they smother everything in freakin mayo when I tell them not to. But I do like most of their food and it's the closest place to where we live- we live on the outskirts by the college (university town) and ALL fast food except Wendy's is literally on the other side of town.

My SIL works at Pizza Hut though so sometimes she gets me some hidden deals.

We don't do Wendy's very often either because they took all the yummy stuff off the value menu like Taylor said. I was ticked!!

Fruit has been sounding so good...and evidentally baby agrees! I ate an entire medium size tupperware container of canteloupe and watermelon last night. Oops :oops: The girls were so mad at me!

Ohh watermelon sounds so good Holly!

Is anyone else having a problem finding good fresh fruit? Our winter was so messed up here and spring came too soon and now all our produce is jacked up. Every time I've bought strawberries, they look amazing and then by the next day, all of them are covered in mold. In one day! I found organic ones once and they were fantastic but I haven't seen them since.

I'd go to the farmer's market but a friend of mine works there once a week and says alot of times, it's stuff people buy from Kroger's (the only place worth buying produce at in town) and then re-sell as theirs.

I haven't had a lot of trouble, but we tend to buy the same fruit every week. I love the my kids enjoy fresh fruit, but I wish it weren't so stinking expensive!

I KNOW!!! I bought 5 smaller Gala apples today and it was $5.09 at Kroger's with my discount. A dollar a piece and they were the cheapest ones they had!

I'm craving veggies now with creamy Italian dressing. Mmmm. . .that's what I had for breakfast. Salad with spinach greens and romaine and carrots and shredded cheese and cherry tomatoes with that dressing.

Salad for breakfast? Haha!! I haven't tried the new creamy italian dressing? Is it pretty good?

They still have the baja sauce here, DH always gets a baja taco when we go to taco bell.

We are getting a buffalo wild wings too! It's in one of the small "cities" closest to us, about 20 minutes (everything is that far) so I'm excited for that. I was way more into spicy/savory stuff with DD but buffalo wings sound good. I have been SO tempted to go up to my old Uni stomping grounds for this amazing buffalo chicken pizza that's everywhere up there. Yum.

I forgot! I figured out the Baja mystery!
They renamed it- it's "Pepperjack sauce". . .but it's Baja sauce. If you order it, the screen will either say +Baja sauce or +PepJac sauce (or something like that). It's definitely Baja though.

And now I want taco bell.

Holly- it's not new! It's just Kraft Creamy Italian. It's SO good if you like ranch and italian dressing (if you don't like both of them you won't like it). We're a condiment-heavy family, lol.
