I dreamt I baked/made...

A rhubarb-cheese-rosemary savory cheese baking powder biscuit...now I want to see if I can, but the rhubarb isn't quite ready. Has anyone else dreamt of food you've never eaten but been able to make the recipe?

I once dreamt I made a black pepper and sesame seed martini. Of course, I'd never actually want to make it (or drink it).

Yours sounds much better than mine!

I am curious about your recipe. I think for me the rhubarb chopped raw in a biscuit would be too "puckery". Let us know how you make out.

I was in the local Wegmans grocery this week and they had rhubarb for $5.99 per pound!
I could not believe it. When I was growing up rhubarb was like air, you kind of took it for granted.

Oh--Aunt Bea, what makes you think that I had a pen and paper handy? Now that you've thrown down the gauntlet, I guess I have to try to make these (the rhubarb is almost ready) LOL! In my dream, the rhubarb was raw, chopped, and dredged in flour. Okay, I'm game, I'll see if I can do this. If it works, it will be my one entry in the 4 seasons cook off! I didn't quite catch what kind of cheese I used in my dream...I have one in mind, but what do the savory flavor lovers think? And, I haven't done an Internet search to see if there are recipes like this...

In my "real" life I am a writer and editor. I write and edit ALL THE TIME in my sleep (my clients have no idea how many revisions they get at no charge), but I have never "made up" recipes in my sleep until now. DC is having a negative effect on my sleep patterns!

Now that Aunt Bea has elevated my dream to a recipe, I must say that I had that got s/one in trouble was when I dreamt I introduced my DH to J (his "dream girlfriend"). My DH doesn't remember his dreams--I can "direct" my dreams as if they were movies and I am rarely, if ever, in my dreams, but anyway, because of my dream about J, I gave him s*it and updates on what was going on in their relationship--he was a good sport, he played along...or, at least he did until I told him that she's a cat person--his one dog is NOT cat friendly...so now he is lamenting that he can't see her anymore because she's a cat person, and is waiting for me to dream up another girlfriend for him<g>. My DH is perhaps the most introverted, private person I've ever met. He talks to me, but my family and friends still ask me when he's going to learn to talk (this after 23 years of being together). He's very, very, very shy with other people. I haven't told him about the recipe challenge yet.

Actually, that combination sounds kinda interesting...black or roasted sesame seeds?

I think the cheese and rhubarb is a good combination but, I would go with a cheese scone and serve it with a warm rhubarb jam. Sweet and savory combo.

Okay--but in my dream, the "biscuit" had rhubarb and cheese in it...hmmm....I've got lots of rhubarb with which to play...and cheese.
