These are my top 5 favorite foods that I've been eating during my 1st trimester of pregnancy.
1. BLT sandwiches with extra mayo. I love me some bacon and lots of mayo. And I think this baby feels the same way! I've probably had 2-3 BLTs a week since I found out I was pregnant.
2. Hamburgers with cheese. A lot of melty drippy cheese. Nothing beats a juicy burger with lots of cheese (and lots of mayo). I had a delicious one the other day at Mozelle's. The cheese? Melted pimento cheese. Oh my! It was delightful! (This Mozelle's Pimento Cheese Burger is pictured with fries. I had mine with Kettle Chips and Ranch Dressing and they were divine.)
3.Baked potato with with cheese. A lot of melty drippy cheese. And Ranch Dressing. And jalapenos. I have been enjoying these for lunch now for the past couple of weeks. Delish! And quick if you heat the potatoes in the microwave.
4. Pepper Jack Pimento Cheese Toasts. Are we sensing a theme here with the cheese and the jalapenos? I have made these a couple of times this pregnancy and would really love a huge plate of them right now! (Recipe here!)
5. Jalapeno Cilantro Dip. I made this so many times when I found out I was pregnant that I think I had my fill. Although it's been several weeks now that I've had any and now might be a great time to make some more. We are still getting jalapenos from the garden! (Recipe here!)
Needless to say, I'm 13 weeks pregnant and I've gained 12 pounds! YIKES! Someone needs to tell this baby to lay off of the meat, cheese, mayo, Ranch, and jalapenos. (But does any pregnant person ever crave fruits and vegetables?)
All right, I'm off to find something to eat!
