Paprika chicken means altered dreams for Yummy Lummy tonight

Paprika gives me altered dreams

Whenever I have paprika I have nightmares unless I’ve gone to sleep in a really happy mood and then I have very good dreams. 

It's a cold cold Tuesday night in Canberra. I'm enjoying chicken and pumpkin mash for dinner.
