Occasionally (I'm talking maybe 3 or 4 times a year), a bowl of cereal, a piece of fruit, ice cream, fruit pie, a slice of carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, pudding (butterscotch is my favorite).

But if there's lunch meat, or any of the epecially if there's any of the salami family, i.e. hard salami, cotto salami, soprasetta, pepperoni, etc., that's my first choice. 2nd to that is a good, strong firm cheese, such as cheddar of Swiss.

Oh, and chili is good any time of the day or night.

You got the theme just fine. Just munchies after dinner. Midnight munchies just sounds better

Not sure how when you got married relates though?

My husband was born in 1977 and I was just a thought. I've only been married for 4 years "I think"

The marriage remark was in response to those who posted about multiple marriages. I just wanted to show that it is possible, and one can be happy with a life-long partner. Sadly, some people outlive their spouses, and have to go it alone for a while, or if lucky, they find another great partner. But you are right, this topic is about late night snacking.

Family is just so important to me, as is the institution of marriage. It strikes a nerve that so many in today's world ignore the power, and joy that is a good marriage, and a good family. Sorry about the mini-rant.

So let's get back to the topic. Sometimes, a mug of hot cocoa with buttered toast is the perfect midnight snack.

I think it's great that you have been married for so long Chief and that you speak so lovingly about your wife

It's rare to find men with good values nowadays. You have a lovely family!

I love having a cup of milky rooibos tea in winter with toast and marmite

Wow, what a mix DL, sounds interesting
