the baby wanted fish tacos

March 8, 2011


I went to bed thinking of white fish salted and peppered on corn tortilla, with pan fried serrano peppers and some avocado. Yeah, my cravings can get very specific.

The next day, during Ben’s lunch break he went grocery shopping to get the items that would satisfy this baby’s longing. Then being the darling he is, he came home and cooked it for me for dinner. It really was the easiest thing (easy for me to say, I didn’t do a thing!) and was so good.
We used cod and added a bit of salt and a nice amount of pepper. Our outdoor grill isn’t working, so Ben cooked it on a stove top grill. For the serrano peppers, we like to lightly fry it with some oil and salt and get them real crispy. Usually, we do it with onions, but onions are one of the things that doesn’t sound too good to me right now so we didn’t put it in. Lastly, warm up some tortillas, slice some avocados, add a squeeze of lemon and you are good to go! For vegetables, Ben quickly cooked up some salted and peppered asparagus and our meal was complete.
I love days when I know exactly what I want to eat, especially when they are home cooked meals. As soon as this morning sickness is over, I am praying there is an end, we are definitely going to be doing weekly meal planning, but until then, Ben pretty much indulges this pregnant lady with whatever she wants. Today’s craving is some thai fried rice from a specific Thai restaurant. Oh the joys of cooking a baby!
Pregnant or not, any one else have any cravings?

    i have cravings and im not even pregnant! yesterday i made a blackberry cream cheese coffee cake…it's almost half gone, my husband is on a strict diet so i feel pretty guilty knowing i ate all of that so far.

    those fish tacos look really good. i never had, or even heard of, fish tacos til we moved down here.

    ha ha! Yes! I was the same way with both my kids!

  • Ashley says:

    Oh my YUM!!!!!!!
    Preggo over here too!
    My current craving has been steak fajitas with peppers and onions and a big dr. pepper. My sweet husband took me to get some yesterday. Isn't it amazing how delish food tastes when you've been craving it!? 🙂

  • Rubyellen says:

    ashley- totally!!!! your meal sounds good, minus the onions! haha… but yeah. once i have whatever i am craving, i almost always exclaim (once i have devoured the food), “That was the best food ever!!!” haha…

    jessicajane- oh man. i love sweets. but when i am pregnant that is the number one thing that leaves the nastiest tastes in my mouth!!! i still indulge in them, but i always regret it after. not fun.

  • Ashley says:

    Too funny – my baby (due July) wanted fish tacos one night last week! I trashed my dinner plans and begged the hubby to take me to our favorite local mexican place. I didn't go unsatisfied for long!

  • I always have cravings for salty, or crunchy stuff. In college, my roomate used to make fun of me because she had never met anyone who craved textures. Anyone else crave crunchy foods? Or am i the only weirdo?!

  • Kim says:

    definitely not preggo, but today ive been wanting some veggie-friendly lumpia! i texted my mom and asked her to please comply 🙂

    love your new design!

  • Ms.Tips says:

    yum! when I was pregnant all I wanted to eat was sea salt and vinegar chips. I would eat them until my tongue gets raw… now I've been craving starbuck's earl grey tea latte and any Trader's Joe's chocolate treats! may be I'm PMSing.

  • Sera Pie says:

    This sounds SO delicious!

  • Laura says:

    we have all had the stomach flu here, so we are craving NOTHING. Fat Tuesday never looked thinner!

  • Anki says:

    33 weeks pregnant here, no special cravings. Never had. Hope your morning sickness is over soon!

  • pureSunday says:

  • liezl says:

    ooh, I had crazy (non-preggers) Fat Tuesday cravings today…all for sweets. Had my first taste of Paczkis and I'd love some now!

    Props to your hubs for taking care of you and your little one on the way 🙂

  • jozen says:

    yum! those fish tacos look delish…

    preggers and non-preggers.. i always have food cravings. i LOVE food! hee hee.

  • jane says:

    breakfast HAS to be a pastry or some sort of carb (bagels, cake, croissants, pancakes, etc.). no savory.

    once that's done with, i don't know what i want to eat for the rest of the day! 🙁

    happy to see you today!

  • ashley says:

    your little family is positively adorable–names and all!!! they definitely won't find another kid in class with their name, and that's really special!

  • ashley says:

    (oops…this comment was obvs meant for the above post!)

  • I'm really craving this hamburger truck we tried when we were at a craft show in LA.. they're only in LA so I'm thinking of making a special trip just to find them one of these days, the burgers were sooo good! 😉

  • Rach says:

    oh mannnnn fish tacos sound soooooo good right now!! my craving has been this cilantro jalapeno hummus that i get at trader joe's. I can seriously eat the whole tub in one sitting – and then I hate myself for the heartburn it gives me, but I do it again days later! 🙂 haha.

  • Gretchen says:

    Congrats on the pregnancy, and WOW does that look good! I am 28 weeks and the specific cravings have pretty much been here all along. 🙂 How wonderful of your husband to cook you what you want!

    I have a request — as your baby grows, can you post some fun maternity outfits you come up with? I love your style and would love to see how you dress your baby bump!
