Dreaming

I shoot bolt upright in bed. Husband sleeps deep, even after I poke his back to share my dream. "Kevin?" I whisper loudly.

No response.

Oh, well. I lie back on my pillow and smile.

Grilled cheese and peanut butter... mmmmmm!

It is the second night I have had this dream. I think of chunky peanut butter spread thick on my homemade bread, the butter sizzling and the cheese oozing off of the corners, and then...

And then I gag.

Coming further out of my dream-state, I realize how truly yucky this actually sounds, now that I'm awake. And I'm glad for husband's deep sleep, for I do not wish to hear the endless heckling over this one...

I'll stick with my grits, thank you.

I guess I'll be making grilled peanut butter and cheese sandwiches only in my dreams.

I think you might be a Southern girl trapped in an Idaho girl's body--you and your grits! You are precious and I love your blog!! :)

Hi Elise :) LOL! My sweeties sometimes ask for a snack that includes pb and cheese (not mixed together), but I won't even do that!

I have to admit that your "dream craving" is much healthier than mine...mounds candy bars :)

I am packing one in my hospital bag as a treat after Little Miss arrives! Love, Q

That is too funny! :) I don't think I've had any food dreams while I was pregnant.

Okay, I HAVE to comment on this one. I LOVE peanut butter spread on a slice of chedder cheese. I like grilled cheese sandwiches and I like grilled peanut butter sandwiches. So one day I was thinking maybe I can have the best of all worlds... So I made a grilled peanut butter and cheese sandwich. DISASTER! The peanut butter and cheese melt at very different rates and it was such a mess. The peanut butter was all over the place and the cheese hadn't done too much melting yet and it all slid all over the place and the sandwich didn't hold together. I guess I'll be having my peanut butter and cheese raw!!

Ha ha! I'm so glad this post ended the way it did. When I initially read you were dreaming of grilled cheese and peanut butter I was shaking my head and thinking, "Oh my..." :)

Liberty said...

that is the worst craving I have ever heard! LOL The worst I had was that every time I ate an apple it tasted like bologna

Audrey said...

One of my favorite things is a grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwich...or even just toast the bread before you spread the PB&J on it.....mmmm, warm!

Give it a try, I now you'll love it!

Beverly said...

This may be worse then my Ellios pizza and applesauce ...
Sweet dreams, Elise :-)

Joy said...

Oh how funny!!! But for some reason now I am thinking about peanut butter , banana, and honey sandwiches....*giggles*

Andrea said...

Elise,
It is really yummy!! Melted PB and cheese that is! But I like it stuffed in a jalepeno pepper, breaded in cornmeal and deep fried. mmm.
(this is my husband's "popper" recipe)
Grits are also good. :)

I will admit to my distasteful craving with my head bent in the "I'm so sorry" pose. It was bologna sandwich on sliced french bread with peanut butter and mayonnaise :-(

I had to have this with each pregnancy that went to term. I must confess I could go for one right now.

Jessica said...

I never dream about food--but I do have some CRAZY pregnancy dreams. When I wake up, I think they actually happened. It's weird.

jen said...

Smiling, because I had crunchy peanut butter for lunch today. :)

Christine said...

I just saw a food special the other night that talked of a small eatery in a little town that sold sandwiches with PB and all sorts of things. Yours sounds pretty tame in comparison!!
