I am so very not pregnant but I am having an odd craving for fried eggs right now. While I am on the topic of food I think I will discuss Evan's new eating habits.
Since Evan's surgery his taste in food seems to have changed pretty dramatically. Things that he adored before are now out. Things that he would not have touched before he gobbles up. He is also able to eat more in one go than he did before. Snacks are out now because when I try and give him one it will ruin his appetite for an actual meal a few hours later. Breakfast one of his favorite meals is now picked at. I am going nuts trying to figure out new breakfast ideas for him since usually at that time my brain is not quite awake any way.
Protein is a top food for him. I guess that makes sense since he is recovering from a surgery and the body needs them as building blocks to help in that healing. Today at dinner he ate 3/4 of a rather large chicken breast. Normally we only make two for dinner, one for my husband and then most of one for me leaving the remainder for Evan. I guess now we will have to start making three.
Strong flavors seem to be preferred as well. When we were at Trader Joe's the other day I let him pick out some dried fruit. He pulled candied ginger off the shelf. He actually ate it when we got home much to my surprise. To me candied ginger tastes like burning and it is not a very pleasant taste. Evan gobbled it down. He also is enamored of salsa, just like his father.
I think I am going to head to bed now before I suddenly decide to fry me an egg.
