I can’t handle photographs of food anymore. I have one more month of pregnancy to go (give or take a little depending upon mother nature and the Lord) and things like Pinterest and the latest issue of Southern Living are going to drive me batty. I am not the type of person to crave something unless I SEE it. Then, once I see it, it’s all I can think about. I can go on like this for months. I don’ t necessarily have to indulge in whatever it may be right then, (I did inherit a little of my mother’s intense self control) but I will think about this food item indefinitely. For instance, when I went to see my sister back in January, we indulged in the tastiest peanut butter chocolate cupcake from The Sweet Lobby. We split that cupcake 3 ways between myself, my sister, and my niece since it was 10 o’clock in the morning. Ever since I had that 1/3 of a cupcake, I’ve been dying for another.
And so the story of my pregnancy goes. I see things on Pinterest and think about them for months, then finally hit a breaking point and make said item. Yesterday was one of those days. I was making Thomas’ post workout smoothie, and I had half of a banana left over. I knew I had to make these frozen peanut butter banana bites right away or I would quite possibly die. I saw them months ago on Pinterest, and they were so worth the wait. Thomas even pulled some out of the freezer last night at 11pm when I said I was hungry before bed. I didn’t complain.
Needless to say, we finished those bad boys off. And if you can’t tell from the photo, I did not follow the directions in the recipe. I dumped the chocolate right on top of the banana because dunking the banana into the chocolate was going to take. too. long.
Now I must move on to thinking about the endless recipes I just drooled over in the April issue of Southern Living. Fried green tomato sliders? Mini berry cobblers? Crab cake hush puppies? Chicken and waffles? I CAN’T LIVE LIKE THIS ANYMORE!
