We as a family have done some crazy things in our sleep! After age eight, none of us have had any issues sleep walking, but when some of us were younger, well, let's just say we were good at it.
~One of us walked out of the house and began down the driveway at about 10:30 one night. He didn't remember a thing in the morning. Believe me, my parents sure did!
~Another person (all will go unnamed to protect pride) walked around the house and slept on the couch or the stairs or the floor for a couple hours at a time before finding a new place - all while asleep. The night owls in our family never knew where we would find her next. That thankfully only lasted two years.
~That same person ended up right next to my bed one night and I was jolted awake by this shuffling noise right underneath me. I was absolutely terrified. I didn't know who it was, or even what it was, and I didn't want to find out. It is amazing how scary my imagination can be early in the morning. I finally worked up the courage to look over the edge of my bed. I was so grateful when that two year period was over - I slept much better once she stayed in her bed!
~I don't think we have ever had someone get up and shower in their sleep, but I've heard stories like that!
~And, I guess if I am going to share those stories, I need to share one of my own. I don't think I ever sleep walked (slept walked? slept walk?) but I vividly remember waking up at, like, 2 in the morning, craving wedding cake of all things. I had to settle for hot chocolate instead. I remember heating up the water in the microwave and thinking, the buttons are so loud! Trust me, an empty kitchen at 2 in the morning will make every sound loud enough to wake the dead. After my adventure trying to muffle the microwave and drink my hot cocoa as fast I could AND get down the stairs and through the dark and scary basement without the hot cocoa monsters grabbing me, I was still craving wedding cake. I think it would've been better had I been sleep walking. At least when you are dreaming, you think you are eating. Or is that just me ....
Don't you want to add your own story to this list? :) Why not make these - sleep walking while baking is optional.
The Easiest and Best Sopapilla Cheesecake
Recipe Source: All Recipes
Yield: 16-24 servings
2 packages refrigerated crescent rolls
2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese (I used low fat)
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup cinnamon and sugar
Preheat oven to 350.
Press one package of crescent rolls into a 9x13 pan, making sure it is evenly pressed over the entire pan.
Beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla together.
Spread over crescent rolls.
Take second package of crescent rolls and separate the crescent rolls. You are going to press them over the cheesecake layer to create a layer that completely covers the filling. We press them together and out on a cutting board before placing over filling, but do whatever works.
Melt butter and pour over second crescent roll layer.
Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over the butter.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Eat warm (it will be a hot mess!) or let cool and chill for several hours before serving. I prefer the chilled version so I store mine in the fridge, but the boys like it room temp. Once again, personal preference.
