A glass of wine and nibbles of cheese can never go wrong...

with red wine, I would go with some cubes of parmigiano reggiano, aged pecorino (also lovely with some pear), taleggio or some other alpine hard cheese.

with white, something like brie, camanbert, or quark or some other fresh soft cheese smeared on a crusty bread.

For you milk, peanut butter & jelly folks - with wine?? You obviously didn't bother to read the OP's original question.
.......and pepperoni, or salami. What? No one for chocolate chip cookies?

Thanks for letting me know others eat after 7 pm. My doctor tells me it is not necessary to eat anything after t his time. Seems I can't sleep if I don't have something before I fall asleep. Drink wine with the meal so drink before I go to sleep would be considered alcoholic? Doctor also said only one or two glasses with meals. Am I going to the wrong doctor?

I only occassionaly have midnight feasts. If I have them too often I put on weight.
When I do have them I really do them properly. No holding back on calories and nothing healthy. Things like French fries, chips, chocolate, pizza, Indian take aways........

same way I feel, if my doctor is sleeping and doesn't know what I am doing, I just forget what he says for that moment and enjoy, enjoy, the fulfillment of it. I just don't understand how doctors can tell US to lose weight and they sit there being overweight themselves! I just resented my mother's doctor always saying she should lose weight and she lived to be almost 93! Pretty good for not ever being slim!!!!

The olny reason I would ever be up that late these days would be because I was hanging out with friends..... and probably already had so much to drink that food is not appealing very much!

Ahhhh, almonds. I keep different nuts in the freezer and will pull some out when drinking wine. They do go well with either white, red, or bubbly.
