Whenever I eat late at night, & soon before I go to bed, I end up having strange dreams. A couple nights ago after dinner I stuck my zucchini breads back in the oven because using a piece of zucchini to separate the chocolate from the plain bread kept the middle of the bread too moist. Then of course I needed to taste the bread to make sure it was ready. Then I went to bed an hour later, my stomach still digesting the tasty chocolate & zucchini deliciousness.
So I shouldn’t be surprised at the strange dream that resulted…& this is just the one I remember…
I was at Zingerman’s Deli, getting something for dinner. They messed up my order (this does happen in reality), giving me a sandwich instead of the salad I ordered (this particular mess up has not ever happened to me, yet). Instead of letting them fix it & make me something else, I decided to leave to go elsewhere. I ran into my friend Josh & at the Food Coop / Cafe Verde,just a couple blocks from Zingerman’s Deli, I asked Josh if he wanted to try the zucchini bread I made.
I told him that it was paleo & didn’t have refined sugar (because it was sweetened with dates) & he say that he would save a piece for later. Meanwhile, we were standing in line at the Cafe Verde & when Josh got to the front of the line Mariah Careyshowed up behind the counter & Josh was all of a sudden this lucky winner of some dessert from Mariah Carey. Weird & completely random.
After that whole ordeal with Mariah Carey & the content winning, Josh & I walked out & I started walking toward the University of Michigan campus. It was dark, though it didn’t seem that late. I wasn’t sure of where I was walking to. I didn’t have a place to live, so my walking was essentially aimless.
Then I woke up.
Dreams are so interesting to me. Especially when I can actually remember them. This dream clearly was a zucchini bread dream…heck, my zucchini bread even made its way into the dream! I’m not sure where Mariah Carey came from, but other than that aspect of the dream, everything else I can see where it came from – Zingerman’s, the Co-Op / Cafe Verde, not having a place to live, the zucchini bread – all explainable.
I guess that’s why they’re dreams though. Not everything in them is supposed to make perfect sense.
