Any violence or negative action in your dreams is typically a reflection of your own inner feelings.
According to Jung, negative actions in dreams symbolize the shadow or dark side of your nature. The shadow is everything that you are repressing or denying, the hidden side of yourself that you refuse to recognize. By conjuring up such images in your dream, your unconscious is urging you to bring these hidden feelings into the light of day so that they have less hold over you, otherwise you are in danger of projecting this ‘other self’ onto other people.
Dreams about violence, crime and other actions may not only reveal your inner feelings about yourself, they may also reveal your feelings about the situation around you or in some cases, your feelings about other people in your life. The type of negative action highlighted in the dream will be worthy of your attention if you are to fully understand yourself and your situation. Although disturbing, and unfortunately more common than positive actions in dreams, dreams in which the action focuses on bad or negative feelings, words and actions are seldom predictive, so you don’t need to worry that the horrifying events will be repeated in your waking life. Recurring dreams of committing rape are a different concern, suggesting violent urges that are in danger of spilling over into your waking life.
If this is the case, professional therapy and counseling is strongly recommended. See also ACCIDENTS, ACTION AND ADVENTURES; NEGATIVE EMOTIONS; NIGHTMARES.... bad deeds dream meaning

In dreams, a dish usually represents food that needs to be eaten now, and thus represents ideas or projects that should be tackled immediately. Jungians often see a drinking glass or wineglass as a symbol of the mythical Holy Grail, offering the dreamer spiritual sustenance. For Freudians, to dream of drinking from a glass expresses sexual desire, as like other receptacles, the glass symbolizes the female genitals. A broken drinking glass can represent loss of virginity. Food and drink are everyday items that regularly feature in dreams. In general, they are regarded as positive signs, but there are so many possible interpretations when food or drink—or eating and drinking—feature in a dream that a whole chapter has been devoted to the subject later on.

As food and drink are important and familiar to us, it is no surprise that eating or drinking often features in our dreams.
In some cases, dreams that focus on food and drink may arise out of nocturnal hunger or thirst but, more often than not, such dreams provide symbols that refer to other appetites; these could be, for example, our desire for spiritual, emotional and intellectual nourishment, or for sensory or sexual gratification. For Freud, food represented sexuality because he considered the mouth to be the primary erogenous zone. Most dream analysts, however, follow Jung’s lead and suggest that dream food represents the qualities you are taking in, or need to take in, to yourself for personal, emotional and spiritual development. In other words, the dream is trying to compensate for your feeling of being malnourished in some aspect of your waking life and it could be pointing to a physical, intellectual, spiritual or emotional source for this hunger.
Dreams of being thirsty, drinking or drunk, cooking, comfort eating or dining out, fasting or gorging can send you powerful messages about your current state of psychological well-being.
