Chowhoundish dreams

I woke up this morning startled about my dream: I had to choose a slice of pizza, and the topping options were: creme fraiche; creme fraiche with jalapenos or something else I can't remember. I could only have one slice, and the indecision was killing me! So much I woke up!

I told the dream to my husband, who suggested this post. Do chowhounds dream about food? Good dreams or nightmares? What do you dream about?

  1. All the time! Just ask my husband about the time I woke up mumbling something about parmigiano reggiano! I immediately realized what I was saying in that place between sleep and awake and felt accordingly stupid!

    I've posted this dream before, but I also work at an engineering firm drafting for a living. One time, I was working on some really sucky electrical diagrams... that night, I dreamt about recipes that were written as electrical diagrams! What a nerd!

      I spend all day reading and writing words on a computer screen. I've actually read my dreams sometimes and once I dreamt that I was reading Chowhounds. That's pretty bad, too.

    2. I once had a dream that was a recipe for a spinach-based vegetarian casserole. That is to say, the dream did not consist of the written text of a recipe, but a scenario in which I was preparing this dish I had never made before.

      The next morning, I got up and I made the casserole. (How could I not? It felt like some kind of epiphany.) It tasted pretty good.

        that is so great that you actually got up and made the casserole. i would have done the same thing!

      2. While I can't recall specific dreams or foods I've dreamed about, I know I do - all the time. Several times, I've woken myself up because I was chewing - air.

        1. Not only dream..but sometimes I awake with a particular yen for something...and it becomes breakfast no matter how odd...good for a giggle :)

          1. I don't remember this, but my SO insists I once woke him up screaming something about cherries. I sounded very worried--and it was not cherry season so it made no semblance of sense (hurry, put them in the fridge? Get them off the tree quick? They're not ripe yet, leave them alone?)

            Now that I think of it, I don't remember ever dreaming about actually eating anything. I don't think I have a sense of taste in dreamland--so sad.
