Chocolate, sushi, coffee, shellfish, swordfish, wine, deli meats, soft cheeses, cocktails, salad bars…conventional medical wisdom strongly recommends pregnant women cut out all these foods.

Fortunately, I’m not pregnant, and I have no plans to get pregnant. And because I am an adult of mostly sound mind, I can eat and drink anything I want. Therefore, I’d like to start with a lemon drop martini, a shrimp cocktail, and a side of raw chocolate chip cookie dough, please.

What are you craving today?

    Runny eggs followed by runny cheese – preferably something stinky. And a large gin and tonic would be super.

    A bagel topped with a lightly poached egg and smoked salmon, washed down with a glass of champagne…

    Love this post!!! In any one day, I will most likely have craved… creamy stinky unpasteurized cheese, sashimi, smoked slamon, imported most likely full of nitrates cold cuts, anything with so much spice in it that I will sweat and cry while eating it, and liquor of all kinds… punctuated at intervals by coffee so black it’s almost solid…
