Until I got pregnant.
In the first trimester, some of the only things I could stomach were fruit, I think maybe because I was all of a sudden thirsty and a person can only drink so much water? And then in the second trimester the appetite is RIDICULOUS, and to get through the night I usually have 2 servings of dinner, dessert, and THEN fruit. I’m not kidding. Almost every single night unless dinner is a burger or something huge. On nights I don’t I wake up famished at 3am and one night I almost whacked Jay awake to make him go get me OJ so I didn’t pass out going to the bathroom. This kid is a leech. And also I’m very dramatic when half asleep and have to pee while hungry.

But anyway. I figure since I’m going to be consuming ALL THE DESSERT that I should start making more of it myself for health and fiscal reasons, and it’s summer and fruity desserts are so this month so….here we go. PW’s Coffee Cake, which is delicious and fattening, which I think is OK.
