  1. This is so cream.

    1. GREAT TOPIC!!

      If I'm still up at that hour it's Xanax!!!! LOL!! Seriously, I usually don't get up in the night to eat, but if I do, sometimes it will be something relatively light like some triscuits with a slice of Tillamook cheddar that I quarter and put on them. That will generally cure the hungries for me. But every once in a while, I am obsessing or craving something that is calling me in the fridge, like a liverwurst sammie on toast with cheddar and mayo. Or salami & cheese on toast with mustard and mayo. Sense a trend here?? Love to see what other 'Hounds crave at night!

      My Mom used to make my Dad go get us (of course I had to get in on the action) McDonald's cheeseburgers & fries, at like 9 o'clock at night. My Dad is a Saint, so he didn't care. I believe this was even before drive thrus came around. Yup, the good old days. I'm glad I live too far from one to make my DH do that, even though I know he would if i asked him to.

        LOL: I was going to say, if it's truly midnight the only snack I need is Restoril, since I can seriously get a stretch of sleep. But if it's after two a.m., and it's a matter of waking up with the growlies, a banana and a glass of milk do the trick; it can't be heavy or difficult to digest. Caveat, though: if I'm STILL awake as opposed to awake AGAIN, I can and do eat anything, from leftover beef stroganoff and noodles to graham crackers with peanut butter and sliced bananas, with a huge glass of oj.

          Right, right, you got it!! I wish I could drink a glass of milk!! That might help me!! But, NOOOO.

            IF... I am still up at 1 am, i am probably drunk!

      2. Definitely cheese or a couple of slices of whatever cold cuts might be on hand. Protein.

        1. Bowl of cereal. If there's no milk, then a waffle with peanut butter and strawberry jam.
