Craving, craving

{Image found here}

For some inexplicable reason, I am craving Little Caesar's pizza today. I didn't see a commercial, I didn't drive by one, I didn't overhear someone mention it - I just suddenly wanted it. A lot.

This happens to me a lot. I'm going about my merry way, doing whatever it is I'm doing these days, and suddenly - BAM! - I get a craving. And they tend not to go away. Last week? I ate broccoli slaw five meals in a row. The week before that? We had toasted turkey and pepper jack sandwiches for dinner two nights in a row. The week before that? I couldn't get enough chicken salad.

And our weekend dinner dates? I usually know where we're going and what I'm going to order by Wednesday. This Saturday night? PF Changs - lettuce wraps and orange peel chicken.

Nate calls this behavior 'weird'. I prefer to call it 'anticipation'. Po-ta-to; Po-tah-to.

Surely I can't be the only person who does this? Do you look forward to your meals with such enthusiasm? Or am I really a weirdo?

you are not a weirdo. I do the same thing. I am eating breakfast, while thinking about what I want for lunch. While at work, I dream about what I want for dinner. I once ate BLTs for a whole week. It was great!

Love your blog and hope things are going well for you and your little family! Best wishes on a vocationary postion!

I do this too sometimes. Like last week I just HAD TO HAVE chocolate covered peanuts. I didn't rest till I went out and got them lol.

I'm like that too. If I get in my find that there's something I want... I MUST have it. :-)

If I know I'm going somewhere for a meal, I know what I'm getting. Going to Soccer Taco last Saturday night, I knew on Wednesday I was getting chicken fajitas and a margarita, frozen with salt. Me and a couple of my sorority sisters are going to Chili's tomorrow. I'm getting their quesidilla (sp?) salad, lol.

as long as you don't start craving something like ice cream and french fries then I think you are fine. If you do you might want to pee on a stick.

Are you sure there is no "bun" in the oven?
Although there is nothing cooking in my oven and I do daydream in advance about my next meal(s.)

Dude, have you seen me eat? My watch should just have pictures of food in place of the numbers.
