Midnight Munchies

I was making myself a marmalade sandwich at 20 past midnight and I thought "I wonder what DC people do about the Midnight Munchies?". Or are you all too self-disciplined to snack late at night?

Midnight munchies, o you mean the 2nd helping of dinner, only now it's cold, so maybe a smaller serving. Ice Cream. Yogurt. Fruit. Graham crackers and a glass of milk. Peanut butter on crackers or a sandwich. Actually, any kind of sandwich. I'd prefer something sweet, but it's best if I don't keep cookies or cake in the house.

Right now, I should freeze a bowl of grapes. These are soo good eaten one at a time from the freezer, and are not calorific.

Oh, I always intend to go to bed early but things always seem to get in the way.

Thanks for the link.

Just a light snack then

Frozen grapes - now there's a good idea, especially when on a diet.

The Cubans have already covered that, the medianoche sandwich. You do even have to be Cuban to enjoy!

If I have the munchies I make Belgian Endive leaves filled with Gorgonzola dolche and toasted walnut pieces or I'll grab some salami swipe it with some cream cheese and chopped pepperoncinis roll like a cigar and eat a few of these.I really love to dip cooked shrimp In plain old mayo and snipped chives.

I also suffer from 'Midnight Munchies'!! I am one of those people who cannot go to sleep when i am feeling peckish! I have tried just having herbal tea but that doesnt fill the gap! All I seem to find without having to whip up an entire meal and wake up the household, is a handful of raisins and almonds which seems to do the trick. However a bowl of muesli and yoghurt is filling and wont be too heavy. Does a piece of toast with hummus or peanut butter on appeal to anyone? These are 2 options I will certainly always have in the fridge.
Does anyone have any tips for when the midnight munchies occurs? Something relatively healthy and requires no or very little cooking?
