Food Dreams

I found myself eating, last night, in a dream,
These most wonderful scones, served with real clotted cream
And a strawberry jam that was fit for a king…
I awoke to a fridge that contained not a thing.

… well, close, but not quite 100% accurate. The fridge has all sorts of things in it… for thanksgiving dinner. Not for today. But I did have a dream about scones with jam and clotted cream. Oh, my goodness, I did have a dream about scones, jam, and clotted cream. Now I have to get clotted cream to have on hand for when the Cuttlekids come for thanksgiving. Or maybe just for me.

Have you ever dreamed about food? What food? What circumstances? Have your food dreams ever come true? Was that a good thing?

    I dreamt last night that I found a hamburger shop near here which sold root beer. You can’t normally get root beer in Korea. I was very disappointed to wake up and find out that the shop doesn’t really exist. :(

    Not so many food-eating dreams, but I’ve had several dreams about trying to read a menu in another language.

    I dream of food fairly often, although most times it’s about a social gathering over a meal. Almost always involves some sort of soup though.

    I did, however, literally “dream up” Pizza Soup about 15 years ago. Similar in style to French Onion Soup, it entails a clear broth with sauteed onions, peppers, mushrooms, and garlic and canned diced tomatoes (usually some Italian sausage too) seasoned with basil, oregano, and black pepper — fill individual ovenproof bowls, cover with a large crouton of toasted Italian bread and shredded mozzarella cheese (maybe some slices of pepperoni too) and melt the cheese under the broiler. Yum!

    As an Englishman… I’ve got this.

    The jam or cream question; it depends where you’re from. Cornishmen will put the cream on first, then the jam; whereas in Devon (Cornwall and Devon being the two counties famed for their cream teas) they do the opposite.

    On pronunciation; it’s rare to hear people pronounce the “e” and the few who do tend to be posh, normal people say “skon”.

    Personally I put the cream on first and I say “skon”.
