ALL I want is tomatoes. Lots of fresh, ripe tomatoes. What is wrong with me?

Oh, that's right... I'm pregnant. It's just part of the process, right?



When I was pregnant with Evie, I was ALL ABOUT the watermelon. Watermelon slices with every meal - breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And maybe about three or four watermelon snacks every day as well. (It's no wonder I looked like a big green melon by the 41st week...)

This pregnancy so far has been all about aversions --  any food that doesn't immediately seem appetizing better stay far away from me. 

Then I found tomatoes. My addiction.  

I literally had tomato soup for breakfast this morning.  And sliced tomatoes at lunch. And I'll probably have grilled tomatoes tonight at dinner.

And a tomato and lettuce sandwich at 11:30 PM a few nights ago.  Yup, it was just two slices of bread with tomato, lettuce, and mayonnaise.   (Thank you , Dadda, for preparing it for me and not gagging while spreading the mayo for me. He hates mayo.)

At this point, I would not be shocked if our child comes out looking eerily similar to this:

Yup, this just guaranteed nightmares tonight
about a little cherry cherub.


  1. Haha! Good thing it's summer when tomatoes are more likely to actually taste like a tomato, right? :)

  2. So excited to read about your tomatoe obsession!!! When I was pregnant I ate tomatoe dishes morning noon and night, funny thing is I NEVER ate tomatoe soup before I was pregnant and I couldn't get enough when I was pregnant. I learned to make some pretty good homemade tomatoe soup!!!
