  1. The funniest one was my husband. He woke me up by talking in his sleep:
    "No! Not that one! The *other* one*!" was pretty good, but I loved the next one,
    "NO! The penguin gets the pizza!!" He sounded so indignant! And there was so much stress on "penguin"; very "You are such an idiot!" I had to stuff blankets into my mouth so I wouldn't wake him up laughing. I asked him the next morning, but he never was able to remember what he was dreaming about at the time.

    1. i want to post about another thread I was on and say that I have drempt a full on chow chat conversation in my sleep. But mostly I am posting this in anticipation of the hysterical stories that are sure to be posted here. Good thread alliegator

      1. I'm not much of a dreamer, so I'm hoping to get my chuckles from others. Besides cooking and serving a meal that I don't remember at all because of a concussion, I have nothing to offer.

          Oh holy cat. Lucky you didn't cut off a digit or offend a guest. My best friend has cooked muffins and a cake in her sleep but that was ambien induced

            Jeezus, she's the lucky one. At least I was actually concious. I'm sure her cake was, um, very purty :/
            Alright---let's hear some silly dreams!

              It was green. She swirled in green food dye. :-)

                I can only imagine. If somebody gave me a sleeping pill and nudged me into the kitchen, they'd probably get a multicolored 4 ft croqucambouch layered with bacon and swiss cheese with a delicate sprinkle of chopped cilantro. Or something like it.

                  LMAO

        2. IIRC, an old boyfriend was rather indignant that I said "No, it's Stu" several times in my sleep. I had to tell him I was telling someone that "It's not soup. No, it's Stew!"

          And I *know* I've had dreams about cooking alongside famous chefs, but I can't recall them, other than remembering I was very very nervous. Anthony Bourdain was one of them - and he was very nice to me. This was in a home kitchen, so perhaps that's why. Or maybe it's because I call him my boyfriend. Who knows? ;-)

            Oh, he's you're boyfriend? Well, that would make you almost my aunt! In my house, he's referred to as "Uncle Tony" because I'm convinced I'm related to him somehow, and my mom swears she's never met him ;)

          2. It wasn't that long ago that I had a very vivid dream about eating a sandwich at a local restaurant. I had finished the sandwich and was enjoying a beer, but I was definitely going to order cheese fries. Then I woke up.

            I was so disappointed. I really wanted those cheese fries or, at least, to dream about having those cheese fries. So I tried to go back to sleep and pick up my dream where it left off, which sometimes works but didn't this time.

            For dinner that evening you better believe I went there and ordered myself some cheese fries.

            1. Funny, but I really can't recall any dreams about eating or cooking. I do fall asleep often going over recipes in my head. It is calming for me.

                I do too. I have come up with some great ideas that way.

              2. OT of food, but I dreamed the other night that I had a brother with antlers. There was one particular knub on the antlers that he thought didn't look good, so he want going to try to twist/pull it off with pliers. His friend had the same problem, but was going to use a saw instead.

                ?????????

                1. I had a dream that I accidentally stole a bottle of ketchup from a gas station. I spent the rest of that darn dream trying to get back there to return it, but seemed to be thwarted at every turn!

                  1. I already posted about a previous dream, but I had another one last night, and I can't ever remember dreaming about food outside of these two instances.

                    Anyway, in my dream I had ordered two egg rolls, one for me and one for my companion, but they gave me 6 egg rolls. I guess it was a happy dream. Strangely, in my dream I had also ordered some bland chicken and pepper dish that I would never order in real life.

                    1. okay, this is more silly than funny but just the other night I was having some problems with a stomach illness I have and i guess I was restless. My bf said that in the midst of my tossing and keeping the poor man awake I sat bolt upright and said "its home cooked" very indignant. He asked me what and I repeated myself and lied back down and went back to sleep. I wonder who was making me feel indignant? Strange how the unconscience mind works
