Summers in Arizona can be excruciating. Summers in Arizona when you’re 8 months pregnant are downright torturous. Good thing both of my boys were born in August. (Did you sense the sarcasm in that statement?)
I didn’t have many ‘cravings’ during either of my pregnancies. Hell, maybe I did but I just didn’t realize it because my normal, everyday diet is made up of foods that other people ‘crave.’ The one thing I did find myself longing for though was coffee. I wanted it. I needed it. I’m pretty certain it’s because I was told I shouldn’t have it. It was during a desperate pregnant moment (in the middle of July) when I came up with this genius idea… Coffee, Pregnant Style.
In the form of ice cream… with chocolate donuts.
Now, I could have easily just sat on the couch with an Entenmenn’s in one hand and a pint of Starbuck’s Coffee Ice Cream in the other. But that would have been the lazy pregnant thing to do. And I’m no slouch. Instead, I opted to cut the donuts in half and artfully spoon some softened ice cream on to one side, then sandwich it with the other.
