cravings

To my few foodie fans out there, I owe you an apology. I haven't been too much in the mood to cook lately, so my blog has been sadly neglected. But I have a really good reason, I promise. We are actually expecting our second baby! I'm really excited about it, but with pregnancy comes a constant serious upset stomach ... so, I've been really avoiding the kitchen. Most things that I usually love sound really unappetizing at the moment. It's miserable! But, there are a few things that I still love, so I'm hanging on to those. I love salad. And when it comes to dressing, the vinegar-ey-er the better. The other day, I made this dressing and fell in love. You might want to change the vinegar-oil ratio, though. My pregnant taste buds seem to like things VERY tart.

Grapefruit and Red Wine Vinaigrette
juice of 1/4 grapefruit
1/2 t grainy dijon mustard
3 T red wine vinegar
2 T olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
  1. Combine the grapefruit juice, mustard and vinegar in a small bowl. While whisking quickly, add the oil in a steady stream. Add salt and pepper to taste. Toss with some simple salad greens and enjoy!

Congratulations!!

My first trimester I survived on goldfish crackers and dried ginger wrapped in smashed starbursts. the ginger really helped my upset stomach.

Hope you start feeling better soon!
