What makes for a very happy pregnant lady?
Purple grapes with crunchy seeds of course!
You all know about my most recent (and intense) pregnancy craving for this particular kind of grape. I scoured the farmer’s market on Saturday and found some, but they just weren’t the ones. (They were kind of bitter and just not what I was dreaming of, but I was still grateful I found some.)
Wow, do I sound picky. 🙂
Yesterday we talked to our neighbor where we have gotten Concord grapes in the past. He told us that the grapes were ripe and that his family had already picked their fill of all the grapes they would use. He invited us to come over and pick the rest. (and he loves to do trades with us, which is so wonderful.)
When we got there, we entered grape paradise! We were surrounded by giant clusters of sweet, juicy grapes. Every time we ate one, Jeff and I would look at each other with the look that says ‘Can they really be THIS good?’ Yes, they can.
Finally!! The grapes I had been dreaming of!!
(I’m laughing about how many people I’ve probably talked about grapes to.)
Each time I eat one now, I feel like I’m eating a grape for the first time and my delight over it’s incredible flavor happens all over again. The hard part is to not eat them all like a mad woman (pretty funny picture that creates.) This is one of the most intense cravings I’ve ever had. I feel like there is something in these grapes that I need. I cannot even tell you how good it feels to be getting my fill.
We have plenty for fresh eating and today I froze a bunch. We love to eat frozen grapes for treats (something I’ve recently discovered.) Frozen grapes will be really convenient if I happen to get this craving not during the fall.
I love hearing about pregnancy cravings. So ladies, tell me, what did you crave while you were pregnant?
