Favorite Evening Snack

There are lots of things that I'll fix for a snack in the evening while I'm usually watching TV or reading, but I have one favorite that simply makes my mouth water in anticipation:

A sliced bite of Tillamook brand sharp cheddar cheese topped with a pitted date. The combination of the flavorful and salty cheddar with the sweet, sticky and soft date is more than I can resist.

What's yours?

Wow, that sounds like a good snack! Mine is much more simple and is our go - to about four times a week. We have a popcorn maker that stirs the kernels with olive oil and then flips over and becomes a bowl. We just LOVE it!

My evening snack is dessert.

I don't eat dessert with dinner, I wait until about 9:00. Then it's whatever is on hand, from a handful of jelly beans (always available in case grandson drops by), some chocolates or a dessert SO or I have made.

This is not like your popcorn maker, but I miss the hot-air poppers. You could melt the butter at the top. The popcorn always turned out so light and fluffy.

I have to say my favorite sinful late-night snacks are popcorn (sprinkled with parm cheese or a white cheddar seasoning mix they have in the store), cold pizza and tortilla chips topped with red pepper flakes and cheddar cheese and nuked.

My late-night snack is either chocolate or dessert, like Andy, or cheese with bread or crackers, fruit, or cereal.

This time of year we tend to have an ice cream cone as a snack at about 8:00 pm.

Oddly enough, I like to eat a bowl of cereal in the evening.

Not odd at all. I like evening cereal too.
