I made this recipe while I was 9 months pregnant and craving all the things. All my friends said they ran out of room at the end of pregnancy, but that was absolutely not my experience. I gained room as time went on. And I filled that room with delicious treats at my favorite local spots and giant meals at fun restaurants. I knew that I would be living at home more once our little girl showed up and I wouldn’t have the freedom to just go to a bakery downtown to work while enjoying a cacao latte with a side of brownie. And I was right. Now I spend my mornings walking around our neighborhood with a 9lb weight vest strapped to me before sneaking in time to work while she naps. Like right now.

I may be new to this whole parenting, but I’m obsessed. I may be even more obsessed with her than I am with food. That’s a first! As much as I would like to think that I would choose my husband over nacho fries, I think that would be a bold faced lie. Anything fry related would always top him. But now that I have a daughter…fries come second. Having a child is so freaking cool. I’ve never cared for babies, I could really care less about holding any of my friend’s children, but my own…WOW. I could care less about the lack of sleep because I just want to be there for her whenever she needs me. If that means bouncing on a stability ball at 3am until she falls asleep, so be it! I know I’m going to miss these moments when they are gone. You know what I do not miss, though? Being pregnant. I do, however, miss these nacho fries. I know what I have planned this weekend!
