Favorite Food and Daydreams

March 10, 2011 § 3 Comments

On Thursdays, Robert and I eat take-out. He opts for soy-free BBQ from his favorite place in town; I always eat chicken fried rice from one of the most delicious Chinese places in town. Sometimes I get a cup of egg drop soup as well.

Imagination Land, here I come!

Sometimes when I eat egg drop soup and the egg flowers are just perfect-looking, I like to pretend that I am eating shredded dandelion flower petals.

When I was little, my sister and I would pretend that different foods were actually something else. We would turn our mint chocolate chip ice cream into soup, pretend we were ill (sometimes ill giants) and our soupy concoction was the remedy. We would eat it slowly at first, as though we hated the taste…and then we’d let our eyes get big at the wondrous sugary joy…and then we’d devour it.

My shredded dandelion egg drop soup reminds me of those times.

Do any of you have any foods that stir up your imaginations?

    I sometimes imagine little people and objects in my bowl of Honeynut Cheerios, one of my favorite cereals. (In fact, I think I’ll have an evening bowl right now…):-)

    I remember creating fabulous and strange concoctions with my older sister and brother and serving them as special meals. Ah, those were the days.
