I think everyone here knows that I love good food.
But the last two weeks, the thought of cooking, eating, or being in the general vicinity of food hasn’t been fun for me.
I’m eating because, you know, survival and such, but I rarely want to.
This morning, I decided that an egg didn’t sound disgusting. Neither did grilled cheese.
So, I went to work.
I wanted extra cheesy grilled cheese, so I snuck a layer of cream cheese on a slice of bread before adding a slice of colby jack I had in the fridge.
The other piece of bread served as the “basket”, so I grabbed a biscuit cutter from the drawer (you could probably use a cup or jar if you don’t have one), and popped out a circle. After melting some butter in the pan, I added the cut out bread and dropped an egg inside it.
I also added the bread with cheese to the pan, but if I tried this again, I think I’d toss the cheesy side under the broiler for a minute before throwing it in the pan. Reduces the chance of ending up with burnt bread or not-melted cheese.
Once the egg white was cooked, I carefully put the two slices together and tossed it on a plate.
Voila! Despite the slightly overdone edges, it was a satisfying and comforting meal, particularly with the side of pear slices and goat cheese. (It seems this baby wants cheese.)
Did you have any comfort foods you could manage during the not-so-fun nausea of pregnancy? Or for my no-kid friends, what is your go-to comfort food?
*excuse the not-so-great photos, and the lack of posts – the constant nausea is taking its toll.
