Spring 2010I am craving certain foods lately also. Take my word - No !!! I am NOT expanding my family!!!
I know what the problem is - I have to restrict certain things in my diet and I eventually start craving them - especially salty foods.
One in particular, a hot pastrami on rye with brown mustard and a couple of barrel cured dill pickles.
Many moons ago (in the middle ages), I use to have one on occasion for lunch at a small deli that had some wonderful food. I have not had that in so many years, mainly due to the salt content. But for some reason I have been craving it lately and not sure I know of a good place to get one now.
Watched a show on the food channel a while back that featured a place serving hot pastrami sandwiches that had 2 1/2 to 3 ins. or more of pastrami on the sandwich - nope! I just want a normal sandwich with a stack about a inch high on rye, with a bit of a good brown mustard and of course, a crock of barrel cured pickles on the table. That will do just fine.....
Another craving I have had lately - A small hole in the wall type lunch/grill place I went to frequently for lunch many years ago, had a wonderful, grilled hot dog. Actually it was like a combination of smoked sausage and hot dog, with just a bit of coleslaw and yellow mustard, and served with the barrel cured dills. Two different cities, years apart but the memories are there.
And the wonderful stuffed lobster dinner I had about a week before I had my first child and guess what was sitting on the table?!? A crock full of barrel cured dill pickles on the table !! Got up the next morning with swollen fingers and ankles.
See a pattern here ?? Those great pickles - well the other food also!
Yep! Craving the kind of things I should not eat.
Oh and see that ray of sunshine in the top right corner...
I am craving a healthy dose of that also !!Just another Dab of This and That ramble......
Have a great week!
