Do You Crave Food?

I guess the people who crave certain foods are usually pregnant women. Although I can't remember ever craving any specific foods. Never wanted pickles and ice cream, or anything like that. And never in the middle of the night. In our small town nothing was open after 6:00pm anyway, so you were pretty much out of luck for strange concotions.

Well yesterday I got up wanting Captain D's fish, and until around 10:30 I fully intended to go there for lunch. Then I got to wanting a baked potato from McAlisters and that was what I ended up eating. The other thing was Spanish Rice. I haven't made that in years, but it sounded really good and since I had everything at home to make it, I was going to do that as soon as I got home. Then as I was reading a few of my favorite blogs, chicken and dumplings were discussed. So, that's what I had when I got home last night, and I brought some for lunch today. They weren't the greatest dumplings I've ever had. They had no chicken in them, just canned chicken broth, but they were ok. They weren't like those my children't great-grandmother used to make. Hers were light, fluffy and tasted like a slice of Heaven. Let me tell you that lady could cook.

I'm not quite sure what is going on with me. I don't usually think about specific foods, I just usually think about all foods. But this is really strange. Now I know for a fact that I'm not pregnant--that is unless Jesus is planning to make his way back to earth again, and we know that's not going to happen. I just can't explain it. And I certainly don't need to start something new. Heaven knows I don't need any more reasons to eat. In fact, I need to be cutting food out of my diet. I need to lose weight rather than gain it, which is what I do most of the time.

Have you had any cravings lately? I guess they could be most anything, not just food. I used to tell my grandson(Superhero) that I was hungry to see him. I wonder if he thought I was going to eat him?

Have a great Tuesday. Love one another.

Is it age??? Last night after I got home from class I was craving ice cream and chocolate. I never "crave" that. So I had a small bowl of ice cream..that is why I am two ton Sally. Good grief.

I crave time with my kids, and grandkids too. That is the sweetest dessert ever isn't it?

I'm sure it's age, as Lisa said in her comment. All of a sudden I can crave foods I don't even like! I wish the only thing I craved would be water and jello, or something equally bland with no calories. Would be easy to drop the weight then, wouldn't it?

Not to sound like a Miss America contestent, but I really do crave "world peace".

Well, yeah, sometimes I crave fish. You know, catfish, salmon, always grilled, though.

And sometimes avocados. Don't ask me why, but someone told me a craving is usually a need for a certain nutrient.
