For the second night in a row I've had someone in a dream ask me to prepare 'Mormon Ice Cream'. I have no idea from whence this comes. In the dream I know how to make it. It is a sauce to pour over scoops of vanilla ice cream in a bowl. I was raised Catholic, and have been firmly agnostic, in the sense of knowing that we cannot know, for 30 years. I consider the Mormon faith to be even more 'made up' than other faiths, but have some respect for their strong sense of community.
Mormon Ice Cream
2 oz. Brandy
1 tsp. Citric Acid
1 tbs. Coarse sugar
Heat brandy lightly and add citric acid. Stir to dissolve thoroughly. Add sugar and stir lightly (don't dissolve completely). Pour over vanilla ice cream. Serves two.
I have no experience with citric acid, only know of it from reading recipes for fresh cheese (paneer), so I don't know how it would taste. The version in last night's dream also said that it was okay to heat the brandy enough to drive off the alcohol, but to do it ahead of time and let it cool.
I've been taking 6-9 mg of melatonin after hectic days to help sleeping. I seem to have more structured dreams than usual when I take melatonin, and wake up less.
