My taste buds make me crazy...

My friend at work was surprised when I told her that I cooked beef steak Filipino style yesterday coz she according to her pregnant woman are very sensitive with smelly foods. Well, not me. I like to smell the fried onions and garlic which made me drooling while cooking. I was craving for bistek so I went to the store yesterday to get the freshest beef and bought one lemon for the bistek and 2 bi-color sweet corn. I like the yellow sweet corn but it's not available so I bought the bi-color one. I was excited when I finished cooking my bistek; it smells like the bistek in the Philippines. But the problem is my taste buds. It was delicious on my first bite, the next bites were different. I pause for a while and asked myself "Is this the taste of a Philippine bistek?" Hubby was wondering of what happened coz I was excited to eat at first then I slow down. I said that I was craving for the bistek but after having a bite of it, I don't like the taste anymore. Grrrr! At that moment, I was thinking of what I really like to eat and my Aunt's home made tocino popped up in my mind. Yes, I was craving tocino but I like to eat my Aunt's tocino, not the one in the store. Geee! I lost my appetite right away but I forced myself to finish my rice and give my bistek left over to hubby. Hubby said "I like it!" Well, good for him.

Here's the photo of yesterday's bistek.



I was thinking of eating something sweet but it should be healthy. I hurriedly cooked the sweet corn for me and hubby. I was excited to eat it so when it's already cooked, I brought the plate of sweet corn in the bedroom where hubby is. He's talking to his mom on the phone and was lying in bed. I know that hubby won't talk and eat at the same time but I want to eat when I have an audience. haha I was nibbling the sweet corn while listening to hubby and my mother-in-law's conversation. Hubby warned me already that the sweet corn is too much for me but I didn't listen. I was able to finish it but again, the first half of the corn was great and the next half taste different. I don't know why there's always a bitter taste to all the foods I ate. I think it's because of the iron that I'm taking everyday or maybe there's something in the prenatal vitamins that they gave me which changes my sense of taste. I think the only thing that doesn't taste bitter is the pork rinds (chicharon/es). It taste sooo good with the spicy vinegar but I don't want to eat it all the time because it can cause heart burn. Here's a photo of pork rinds (chicharon/es) and the spicy vinegar.



Hmm My taste buds really made me crazy. I hope someday my taste buds will cooperate and won't give me a bitter taste of the foods I like. That will be a big relief. ^_^

Your taste buds has something to do with your pregnancy, i think. I used to love okra before i was pregnant but during my pregnancy, i can't even have a bite. Until now, i don't like okra anymore. Hehe. Strange.

Take care Mich!

Michelle said...

Yeah, the practitioner told me there will be changes of my body and senses because of my hormone. She just told me to stay away the things that I don't like to avoid problems. :)
