Is there such a thing or am I searching for an excuse for my out of control taste buds?
I am normally an "I can eat just about anything" kind of girl. As long as it's not crab poop - disguised as crab butter but I know differently, or liver, or cow's tongue (although I've never had cow's tongue...just thought of it mooing one minute and then silenced the next....is horrifying.)
When I have a craving for something, there is usually a reason behind it. For example, I crave Ben and Jerry's Chunky Monkey when I'm feeling blue or just a need to pat myself on the back. I sweet potatoes in the fall, because subliminally, they are orange and orange represents to me, fall. I crave collard greens when I'm thinking of corn bread because, well, they go well together.
Lately, my cravings have been for fried jalapenos. There's no fancy recipe, just fresh jalapenos, sliced and dipped in egg and then in corn meal and fried. No, I keep the seeds in, for the heat satisfaction. When I fry them, anyone in the house will start to cough of sneeze so I don't do it very often unless I'm craving them.
When I go through this period of craving, I eat whatever it is that I crave for weeks until finally, the craving disappears, only to be replaced by something else.
Do you crave and if so, what do you crave?
