This week, Julie Cohen is obsessed with …

May 9th 03:05pm, 2013

{Over the past 38 weeks, I’ve ordered some pretty decent mocktails, rediscovered my childhood love for lemonade and volunteered to be DD countless times. But enough is enough! In the twilight hours of my pregnancy, (besides thoughts of the actual baby), I can’t help but obsess over the food and drinks I’ve been missing.}

{A happy hour where I can’t eat the food or drink the alcohol sounds more like the definition of sadness. Therefore, I’ve been avoiding Café Mochi’s Tuesday through Saturday hour of joy for months now. With a great patio walking distance from my house, half price nigiri and sushi rolls, and beer and cocktail specials, spring weather (and this baby) couldn’t have come at a better time. I can almost taste spicy tuna being washed down by a cold Sapporo.}

{Attending a Cardinals game is one of my favorite summertime activities; sitting in the center of a row and having to self-consciously squeeze through people’s knees every time I get up, is less fun – especially when I’m nine months pregnant. Why is beer delivered to your seat but not nachos and ice cream? I can’t wait for the moment when I can summon an ice-cold Schlafly brew without even moving a muscle.} 

{Don’t get me wrong, pregnant women can eat steak, but not how I like it: medium-rare so that when I slice it, blood oozes out all carnivore-like. A center bite of a filet mignon followed by a sip (or, let’s be honest, two or three glasses) of a rich and spicy cabernet sauvignon causes me to viscerally groan in anticipation.}
