There's nothing quite like being massively pregnant and waking up in the middle of the night with an overwhelming desire to eat something really weird. Pickles and ice cream might be the most traditional pregnancy cravings, but Fixer Upper star Joanna Gaines uses her pickles to age copper and apparently wakes up at night with an overwhelming desire to eat a smorgasbord of Fruity Pebbles and pimento cheese.
Gaines, who is currently pregnant with her fifth child, recently posted a photo of some delicious-looking chocolate chip cookies to Instagram, but revealed that the cookies were not actually what she wanted to be eating at that particular moment.
Woke up this morning at 2:30 AM and was craving fruity pebbles, a pimento cheese sandwich, chicken spaghetti, deviled eggs, and ranch dressing. Didn't have any of that so I made myself some cookies. With all the restaurant's final tastings, the cookbook (yes these cookies are in it!), and this pregnancy-I'm definitely growing at a record rate👌🏽#magnoliatable
"Woke up this morning at 2:30 AM and was craving Fruity Pebbles, a pimento cheese sandwich, chicken spaghetti, deviled eggs, and ranch dressing," she wrote. "Didn't have any of that, so I made myself some cookies."
It might not be chicken spaghetti with ranch dressing, but fresh-baked cookies at 2:30 in the morning are pretty good too.
Gaines said the recipe for these cookies is in her upcoming cookbook, which she's in the final stages of putting together now. The book is called Magnolia Table, and it's expected to be out in April, just in time for Mother's Day.
Gaines and her husband are also in the process of opening up a restaurant that will also be called Magnolia Table.
Chip and Joanna surprised everyone when they announced that this season of Fixer Upper would be their last because they were going to stop doing the show to concentrate on their family and their other business interests. Considering everything they have going on right now — especially the fifth baby — it seems like they'll certainly be keeping busy.
