Babies: you ladies keep having them, and then posting pictures of them everywhere, and now my uterus has started nagging me. So… THANKS A LOT.
“Hey Cathy, yeah it’s me, your uterus. Look at that baby over there. Pretty cute right? Y’know I can do that.”
“But look, that baby has rolls on top of rolls. SO SQUISHY!”
-NO MEANS NO, UTERUS.
My dear mother has even gotten in on the game:
“Y’know you don’t have to be married to have children. This is 2012! People do things differently.”
I don’t know where, or when, or how I caught baby fever. The CDC should really get on the prevention and treatment of baby fever. Usually a heavy dose of a trip to Walmart on a Saturday afternoon in the toy aisle with screaming kids breaks the fever, but that hasn’t been working lately. I think my body has built a tolerance, so now I need to seek out new treatment.
One day at Trader Joe’s, I saw the CUTEST baby girl; she was totally bald (I love bald babies!). Seeing this, and in a panic, the BF pointed out these freeze-dried fruits to distract me. Good job boyfriend, good job.
Freeze-dried fruit is so good! Light, airy, and crisp, and then it melts in your mouth and the flavors of the fruit explode. It is kinda pricey… (a 1.2oz bag is $5 at my local TJs). If you can’t splurge, or can’t find freeze-dried strawberries, you can go ahead and make this with strawberry jam. It wont be quite the same, but it’ll be close enough.
A note about using jam in place of the freeze-dried strawberries: the freeze-dried have a very tangy/tart quality to them, which works fantastic with marshmallows. So if you’re using jam instead, find one that isn’t loaded with sugar, and mix in some lime juice to give it some tartness.
