This baby is eating lots of cereal and fruits and vegetables! That is my observation so far. As an expecting mother, my wife is eating lots of bowls of cereal. Honey Nut Cheerios to be exact. Way more cereal than she used to eat before being pregnant. I think its because her body is asking for lots and lots of calcium which the milk over the cereal provides.

Mom-to-be is also eating tons of fruit and vegetables. I can’t keep enough fruit in stock at home. I would say lots of bananas (at least two a day), grapes, apples (I buy Fuji and Gala apples–she won’t eat the Granny Smith), oranges, nectarines, and whatever else is fresh. Yesterday, I bought a bag of fresh cherries that were on sale at Vons Supermarket and the bag is almost completely empty already.

I buy most of my fresh produce at Vallarta Supermarket in Oxnard. They have the best and freshest produce that I have found, a wide variety, and at very low prices. You can’t be it in these parts. And, contrary to stereotype, Vallartas is a Latino supermarket that is very super clean and doesn’t smell like “Mexican Market”. If you’ve ever gone to a old, crusty Mexican Market or carniceria in the neighborhood, you know the “Mexican Market” smell as soon as you enter the door or simply walk by on the street in front of their open entrance. In fact, I have observed that Vallartas always has at least one or two persons on clean up duty full-time. Read the rest of this entry »

Yesterday was the fourth day in a row that we ate at Togo’s Sandwiches in Westlake Village. “Togo’s is what the baby craves” my wife tells me. So Togo’s it is. At least for this week (because the cravings change all the time she says). My wife ordered the same thing every time–the half sandwich and half salad combination. A #26 Turkey, Ham and Cheese on Honey Wheat Bread (light on the Mayo and add Jalapenos) and the Asian Chicken Salad. The sandwich guys at the counter got to know us well from coming in every day. They were very sypmathetic when I told them that my wife was pregnant and that the baby craved Togos. “A Togo’s Baby!” they said. Cheers to Jesse and the rest of the crew at Togo’s in WLV. He makes great sandwiches and keeps the baby happy for now.

A couple of weeks ago the baby was craving Carne Asada Burritos from King Taco all the time. However, we could only go to King Taco on the weekends since the nearest King Taco is an hour away in Pasadena.
