Cravings


There are two things that I really crave these days. The first is Fage greek yogurt with a little honey, topped with granola. I eat it everyday for breakfast or second breakfast and am not tired of it yet. I've even started buying two containers of yogurt to get me through the week. My favorite granola is Bear Naked (I get mine at Stew's) followed by any Trader Joe's variety.

About a week ago my sister, Heather had us for dinner. Of course it was all fabulous, roast chicken, mashed potatoes, homemade reeses pb cup ice cream; but I can't stop thinking about the beet and orange salad she made. She topped spring greens (spinach, arugula, frisee, etc . . .) with beets, oranges and goat cheese. The dressing was light and slightly sweet and orangey. She used this recipe, but added fresh greens and goat cheese and omitted the red onion. So to recreate at any of the six times a day I'm hungry, I have separate containers of baby spinach, sliced oranges, sliced beets (boiled, peeled and then sliced), and a jar of orange dressing in my fridge. I'm trying to be good and stay away from soft cheese (although I'm not convinced of it's evils for pregnant women), but may have to add just a smidge. Yum, I'm getting hungry, again.
