Only in pregnancy

All day long I’d been anticipating dinner. The stockpot is filled with ham and bean soup. Simmering through the day, it filled the house with a homey aroma–a perfect compliment to the crisp autumn weather. It smells like my mom’s used to–hearty, wholesome, and flavorful.

Taste-testing confirmed that it is indeed seasoned to perfection, but suddenly it sounds awful for dinner. I want something mexican and fried.

My dear, sweet, husband must love me bunches, because when I was chuckling about it with him he asked if I’d like him to get take-out. What a man! What a fickle wife! What a great sport he is to accommodate his fickle wife!.

The ham and bean soup will taste even better tomorrow after flavors mingle overnight in the refrigerator.

  1. Usually when I’m pregnant I can’t stand the smell of ANYTHING that’s been cooking in the house all day. I’m still trying to work back up to liking lentils. 😉

  2. This post has me giggling! I can totally see how that could happen, being pregnant and all… and yes, I’ll bet that soup will taste even better after sitting overnight! Like a good batch of chili- always better the second day!
    With my growing family I’m thinking I may need to start making two pots, as there isn’t nearly enough leftover when my growing kids are done with supper! I love leftover stews and soups…
    Enjoy them,

  3. Hey Dell, we had perfectly good spagetti ready for supper last night but suddenly I wanted souplantation sooooo badly. Dan is as good a sport as Ken! 🙂 We are blessed indeed! –Adrienne 🙂
