As you now may know, Hollywood sweetheart Drew Barrymore and hubby Will Kopelman are expecting their first child together, and common with many women that are in the ‘state of preggers’ (technical speak), Drew admits she has some cravings, but surprisingly, nothing too odd.
For the most part, the 37-year-old actress says she sticks to a fairly healthy diet. For instance, in their September issue, Drew told Food & Wine magazine that she currently has a container of homemade curried heirloom tomato-lentil soup in her refrigerator and admitted that tea is her “soulmate”.
But when it comes down to cravings, it’s carbs all the way. “I’m a carb queen,” she tells the magazine. “I’ll always order macaroni and cheese, but I don’t want it to be fancy. I want it to be as close to Kraft as it can possibly get!”
Drew reveals that she loves “inventive food” but adds, “I want the classic dishes to taste like how I remember them. I get a little bummed out when there is too much fancy stuff going on and it doesn’t resemble the original dish at all.”
Like a total human, Drew says she hasn’t mastered the art of cooking every type of food. The specific genre she needs help in? Mexcian! She says, “Somebody, please teach me how to make better chilaquiles! The dish was simultaneously dry and soggy – I somehow accomplished both textures and nothing else. I tried adding Cholula hot sauce, Tapatio hot sauce, but nothing was helping that sucker!”
Ha! BIess Cholula hot sauce. That stuff has been my condiment crack for quite some time. I didn’t think it was possible, but I love Drew even more now. I relate with her with the “carb queen” business. I’d much rather have a bowl of pasta than a candy bar, any given day. That’s my weakness, but I’m working on it. I too, hate it when classic dishes are ‘fancified’. I totally get the mac n’ cheese thing, but even when I get a pizza craving, I typically just want an old-fashioned, greasy piece of pizza, plain or with few toppings (and normally, with extra cheese). None of this sashimi or hot-dog topped pie crap, no, just no! And definitely, none of THIS bs!!
