My cravings with Levi started very early. I wanted lettuce wraps and Cool Ranch Doritos like nobody's business. With this little love, all I want is spaghetti at all hours of the day. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, I want some SPAGHETTI.
(Stole this picture from The Pioneer Woman, and I may just drive over, break into her house and hold her at water-gun point until she makes me some. I don't mess around.)
I have had this little craving for a couple of weeks now, but this week it has hit with such intensity that it is almost unbearable. I mean, I have to have it. I would give an arm and possibly a leg for a big bowl of my dad's specialty spaghetti. It's the best your buds will ever taste, and I've GOT to get my lips on a bowl. And fast.
Last night, I wasn't feeling so great and I begged Husby to whip up a batch (he makes good spaghetti, you guys - must be something with the men in my life and their mad pasta skillz), but all we had were linguini noodles. I'm sorry, but it's just not the same. Especially when we're talking about red sauce and meatballs. My mouth was watering at the mere mention of noodles and sauce. I turned the channel and someone was eating a giant bowl of spaghetti. Of course. I almost jumped into my TV screen to join him. And then a commercial for Olive Garden came on. Um, Heaven. Not only have I wanted spaghetti, but my ENTIRE pregnancy, I've craved salad. Specifically, Olive Garden's. Great. I was in complete and utter desperation at this point.
Husby offered to go get spaghetti noodles, but it was late, Levi was hungry and I really didn't feel like cleaning up the kitchen. So, we hopped in the car and headed to Wendy's for a spicy chicken sandwich. :) Not quite spaghetti, but it was delish.
I am determined to get my big bowl of spaghetti soon, and I am afraid I will go to great lengths to get it. A craving will turn a pregnant woman into a crazed lunatic. Trust me. It won't be pretty.
I polled my FB friends with this question yesterday morning, since clearly, it is all I can think about. And now I'll ask you: Do you break your noodles before you boil them or throw them in whole? I'm a whole-noodler myself. I like to twirl, spin and suck up long noodles like a true blood Italian. How do you do it?
