LOL, that's too cute! I had to giggle!

I had a friend who was vegetarian...except when she was pregnant. She figured her body was craving it for a reason...

I remember going out for Chinese food with her when she was pregnant and she went to town on the meat dishes! LOL.

Well, I'm not a vegetarian, but in general I usually don't eat much meat. Right now though... I have been eating crazy amounts of meat for the past week!! Hamburgers for breakfast!!! It may be that you are low on iron. I remember in my second pregnancy my doc said my iron was slightly low, and to go out and eat lots of steak! Smile

Yeah, go get some. You are craving it for a reason.

I had a boss a while back that was a vegetarian, she was supposed to have surgery and they told her her iron was too low. She came out and asked everyone what our suggestions were for her to eat to help her raise her iron. Most everyone suggested Liver (blech) I suggested deer meat or bison (which you can get in some stores). This just sticks out in my mind as the funniest conversation (mostly cause she was a B****, not because she was a vegetarian).

Perhaps discovered was the wrong word. I've had it around since I was a kid...but the other night before bed I had a small bowl and it was SO GOOD...so I had more last night. YUM. I'm not normally a cereal eater.

About half of my town has power back. And the restaurants are on the other side of town where a huge tree fell and knocked down some power lines.

I've eaten two today so far...I normally limit myself to 1 a day but when i'm PG there are NO rules.

I'm making a faux chicken pot pie for dinner. Instead of pastry you put stove top stuffing on top of the pie filling. SO good.

Good idea but I thinka few of our grocery stores are on generators right now and many are not even open. Right now I will have to wait it out because the gas problem here is crazy! Staying put in one place is the way to go. I can't even describe what Jersey is like right now. It's a mess Sad
