Unlike my heavy sleeping husband, I remember my dreams most nights. Also unlike my heavy sleeping husband I enjoy remembering them….he seems to think it’s exhausting or annoying…like, “how dare that dream interfere with my sleep?”
Anyhow, NOT the point of this post. Don’t worry though, there isn’t really a point anyway. All I wanted to say was last night i had a dream of the following (& yes, it was a pretty annoying one):
I was walking around a city in Turkey (that looked pretty much like Itaewon, in Seoul S. Korea) and went into an herb shop, where i could not for the life of me find plain cardamom. it was all either spicy cardamom or curry cardamom. when i first got to the shop i saw a bottle of it, but it was too big & expensive for my needs. but by the end i figured i’d go ahead & get that since it was the only “plain”, but it was then no where to be found. I woke up before any of it was resolved and even now i feel kinda frustrated remembering it (i still hold to the thought that i USUALLY like remembering my dreams though!).
now, keep in mind in real life, i’ve never even seen cardamom. i have no idea what it is, other than in my “Nourishing Traditions” cookbook the rice recipe calls for it. in the 3.5 years I’ve been using the cookbook, i’ve never bought cardamom. I’ve also never been to Turkey.
