Day 18 - The 30 Day Blog Challenge

Topic - Something you crave a lot.

Welcome to Day 18 of The 30 Day Blog Challenge!

The only time I really crave something is when I know I can't have it, or would have great difficulty acquiring it.

I had big-arse cravings when I was pregnant (both times)

With Megan, it was truck loads of strawberries from Woolies and jam doughnuts (incidentally thats why I landed up lookin' like a fucking doughnut). 

I craved them so badly that one fretful day I tried to microwave a day-old doughnut.  I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into that baby and when I did, I blistered my chin and lips biting into a doughnut filled with bubbling hot jam! 

It was NOT funny, but my mum and Boerewors thought I was fucking hysterical.  Only A Daft Scots Lass would microwave a doughnut and not think of the consequences.  I blame porridge brain.

When I was pregnant with Kaylin, my craving was Beef flavoured potato chips.  I had to have a packet everyday at the same time.  It was pathetic - I couldn't control it.  At least they were not lethal like jammy doughnuts, but they did pack on the pounds.

What I crave these days is:

  • Penguin Chocolate Biscuits
  • Boerewors
  • Mum's freshly baked homemade shortbread
  • A White Christmas
  • A hot bubble bath with NO interupptions
  • A REAL can of IRN Bru
  • To fit into my size 10 jeans again

A couple of years ago I was struggling to get into a 34" waist pair of jeans.So I've dieted hard,lost 2 and 1/2 stone.Back to 30" waist hurrah.However,I still eat healthily so as not to balloon up again,so the list of things I crave and can't have is pretty long.Sausages are top of the list.

Forgo the Penguins, the shortbread and the IRN Bru and the size 10 jeans could be more than a dream! LOL

I'm not too big on doughnuts because of how unhealthy they are, but when I do have one, it's the chocolate cake style I like.

My wife didn't have a craving per se when pregnant with my second daughter, but she wanted odd combinations like pickles and peanut butter while pregnant with my first.

I also went through "sympathy pregnancy" with her twice. I am happy to report that I can fit into my 34 waist jeans now when I was ready to burst out (and ripping a few) of my 38 waist jeans.

Only thing I crave nowadays is a certain creation from Cold Stone Creamery called Chocolate Devotion. ;)

I love jelly doughnuts, especially when the jelly is that really smooth, creamy kind.
