What a wonderful day! :)
…when the baby craves something, it’s just best to oblige. How sweet its going to be!

I say it was less of a craving and more of an aversion to every other snack I could think of :)

so you get sweet cravings like I did when I was pregnant:)
I had major chocolate cravings but tried to control the intake since the caffeine and the sugar obviously..

11 KathEats March 22, 2012 at 7:16 pm

I’m actually not interested in chocolate, which is weird…

Oh yum, ice cream sounds great :) Love the tulips on the table. You are definitely getting great use out of the porch!

This is pretty much the perfect spring evening, I think! I need to get to WF and find that ravioli. Yum.

Ahhh… this weather! When we were eating outside tonight, I told my husband that we need to savor these days before the mosquitoes start coming out and ruining our good time!
LOVE me some Ray Lamontagne! (and ice cream…)

Going to Charlottesville for a short weekend trip tomorrow! I don’t know what I’m doing–my boyfriend is planning the trip–but maybe I can get a chance to stop by the bakery ;)

That dinner looks so fresh and yummy. I love green beans. Also, Ray LaMontagne is absolutely dreamy…his voice is so raspy and thick. I love his music so much and agree that it is perfect cookin’ music.
