Are You Snacking on Anything Right Now?

I've been stuffing my face today, having topped off my delicious Asian lettuce wrap meal with a butter-toasted Skippy peanut butter and Smucker's black raspberry jam, about an hour later. I may be finished for the day and then again I may not, in which case there are FULL FAT garlic Triscuits in the cupboard and some sharp Cheddar in the fridge, and really good crispy tart apples in the cooler drawer. Yeehaw!!
(It would appear I'm not done.)

  1. It's 9pm, we finished dinner at 8 and I'm about to go off to bed to read with only a cup of herbal tea....I never eat after dinner is over.

        I think it helps to eat dinner late and end it with just one bite of dark chocolate with almonds.

    2. kettle corn. pre-bed snack every night

      1. Busted! Eating Kroger fried ice cream as I read & type this. Wish I had escondido's discipline! Someone once told me that ice cream has tryptophan (stuff in turkey that makes people sleepy after eating), so I view it as almost being medicinal, haha.

          Ya wanna hear something even funnier? There's more Tryptophan in Cheddar cheese, milk, and several other products than there is in unless those things knock you on your butt, Turkey probably won't either. Baaahahahah!
          But I tell myself the same thing, ma'am. Nice to see you.. Oh, and I have a case of 24 Schwan's Caramel nut cones in the freezer, so I'm right there with you and in fact it sounds really good and it sure has been awhile since I snarfed those Triscuits and cheese and apple...
          BRB. You made me do this. I hope you feel just awful.
          Thank you.

        2. Just ate a red bean paste filled, steamed bun, should be it for the day, though the sweet potato chips are calling to me very loudly

          1. banana, goldfish crackers, and club soda
