When I was pregnant with all three of my children, I had some strange cravings that came and went. If you have ever been pregnant, you know exactly what I am talking about! They all pretty much sounded fabulous. In reality though, some were bad combinations. I mean, really bad.
My head was like: “Yea, this is gonna be uh-mazing!” My stomach, on the other hand, was like: “There is something clearly WRONG with you.”

Most of the cravings I had though, stuck. I couldn’t get enough of them. My grandma used to say if I ate too much of it, my kid would come out looking like it! Really?! Silliest thing in the world if you ask me. I mean, I can’t imagine a baby looking like a burrito or a pickle…that’s just old wives tales or scare tactics for unhealthy eating! What baby wanted, baby got and that is that. Never tell a pregnant woman she can’t eat something she’s craving unless you have a strong desire for being punched in the throat.
My go-to pregnancy craving was Chinese Food. I used to have my husband make a run for 6 egg rolls. For me. I repeat, for me as in I did not share. That happened with all my pregnancies. Chinese food was a big part of them. Especially this one Chinese Restaurant…Ugh, they were totally on PAR with their menu. It was hands down ridiculously delicious!!! It is just sad now because they changed owners and the quality of their dishes just went Ka-Putt!! Maybe we (the family and I) are just too picky? Maybe. Maybe not.
Anyhoo, I have been craving Lo Mein for the past week. There is no baby involved in this craving. Just a crazy lady wanting Chinese food. It is easy to make and as always, feeds an army! I hope you try it out and give me feedback 🙂
