New cravings...

...that have only started pretty much in the last two weeks or so. And some of which I'm trying not to give in to too often:

1) Indian food- specifically, the keema matar (ground lamb and peas curry) and naan at Madras Masala.
2) Fresca. Emilee was the one who got me started on this. It was her alternative to beer or Coke for me whenever we went over to their place. But we never actually started buying it for ourselves till recently and now I'm totally addicted. My only comfort is the fact that it's calorie-free. But because it's sweetened with aspartame, I think I'm going to cut down on it soon.
3) Ice-cream. Okay, more specifically, strawberry ice-cream. And even more specifically, either Häagen-Dazs or Archer Farms (from Target). And this is coming from someone who's never been that huge a fan of strawberry ice-cream to begin with. What is this baby girl doing to me???
4) Tomato, garlic, and olive tapenade pasta. It's a recipe I came up with a while ago, and in the past 2 weeks, I think I've made it at least 4 times. I don't really know what it is- maybe the combination of the comforting pasta with the salty-sweetness of the tomatoes and olives (which I've only acquired a taste for after we moved here...), but I'm loving it :)
5) Unagi (broiled eel) on rice. Okay, I totally know why I've been craving this. In place of any kind of raw sushi, every time we go to a Japanese joint, it's been either eel or shrimp tempura sushi rolls. And while shrimp and I are going through a bit of a rough patch right now, dear unagi- you continue to make my wasted sushi-loving heart go pitter-patter until I can have me some chu-toro or hamachi...

The strawberry ice cream craving is cute. Almost like your baby girl is saying, "PINK! I want more of that pink stuff!" :)

Also, Fresca seems to be the beverage of choice for marketing people I work with.
