It’s happened to everyone. You’re going about your day, everything is normal. Then all of a sudden – say, sitting at your desk, or while reorganizing your shelves, or in the middle of some kind of business meeting – all you want is a chocolate milkshake.
It came out of nowhere, and it could have just been a passing moment, but instead, the thought takes root. You can see that chocolate milkshake chilling out in your mind (hehe). It might even ruin your concentration, you want it so much.
You get the idea. It could be any number of things – a cookie, a panino (which is the actual singular, btw), a lamb kebob. And often it will go away after a while, even if you don’t get the thing you wanted. For the time being, though, your stomach and/or taste buds are in control.
Oddly enough, this has been happening to me a lot. There are a few things I’ve been craving all the time lately.
1. Burritos. I don’t know what it is about the burrito, but they’re just DAMN delicious. And I feel like I want them all the time. However, even though I often have the opportunity, just any burrito isn’t going to suffice. I need a really good one. And that is why I am sitting here, craving a burrito, right now. With guacamole.
2. Burgers. Nice big juicy ones, with melty cheese, lettuce, tomato, and a tasty, toasty bun. I tend to more often come across that substitute burger, which is good, but is a different animal than that two-handed, drippy mess I’m wishing for. (Not literally, though. I hope it’s still made of cow…)
3. Cannoli. Is there any need to explain this one?
4. Jalapeno poppers. They sure are delicious, but I cannot figure out why I constantly want these. I even crave them WHILE I’M EATING THEM. I think I have a sickness. I’m addicted to the particular combination of creamy cheese and jalapeno battered, crumbed, and deep fried…
I bet you have cravings all the time. What do you crave? Spicy? Sweet? Chinese? Indian? Seafood? All of these at once?
The ultimate pumpkin “breakfast” (although it might have been dinner. This food object is from late September/early October so I don’t remember anymore): Pumpkin Pancake Sundae!
Pumpkin pancake mix from Trader Joe’s, made with mini peanut butter cups.
Pumpkin ice cream
Whipped cream, mini peanut butter cups to garnish
I had intended to also have hot fudge on it, but I left that off to avoid a sugar coma.
Served on a monkey plate.
