Has he not seen your photos? (I'm very sorry of he's blind and has never SEEN one of your meals.)

I would crawl though a mile a broken glass, just to be able to enjoy one of your meals, and this man is going "out"? The shame of it!
Thank you for the kind words Tim.

The sad or happy fact is that I cook for 4 people and have pretty much got the servings perfect. There is rarely any left overs to put in the fridge or freezer. The only time I have leftovers are when I make a things like soup, chili and 1 or 2 other things but they never make it to the freezer because they usually only last 2 days.

When you work nights going out at 1 AM is to get lunch. Like a day worker would run to the deli or BK for lunch at 1 PM.

ed zachary, mofet.

a steak, spud, and a beer are not unheard of at 8am when i get home, just as if it were 6pm for a 9 to 5'er.

when you have a family, making noise in the kitchen at 1am isn't nice, and expecting a spouse to cook for you, even ahead if time for those hours, is asking a lot.

I always wanted tacos or something like that when I got off work.

We have a diner that is open 24/7 in Boston. It is where the chefs go to eat when they get off from work. Lumpy potatoes, fresh veggies cooked until they are "done." It is located where to look at the area, you would think it isn't even safe during daytime. It has typical diner food. The floor needs a really good sweeping, the ketchup bottle and salt and pepper shakers need to be moved when the table is being wiped off, but every table has those record players that you put a coin in and flip the pages to make a selection. You can chalk all that is wrong with this diner up to "atmosphere." And I love it. When I worked in the area, I went there every day for lunch. It is a Boston institution.

well now, it looks like we have places for insomniacs to get their fix, at institutions such as bt's new jersey hot grill and addie's all night diner in boston. do we have any other "institutions" out there in dc land?

My mom also worked graveyard so I grew up having "dinner" food such as eggplant or chicken parm for breakfast. LOL My hub, girls and I enjoy having "breakfast" food for dinner and visa versa. Even when we go out in the morning to a diner or IHOP we like to order off the lunch/dinner menu in the morning.

We have LOTS of 24/7 diners and fast food places (mostly McDonald's and Burger King's have drive-thru 24/7 windows) in New Jersey. We even have some supermarkets (Pathmark and Shop-Rite) open 24/7.

I kinda find it fun to switch the order of meals once in awhile. It breaks up the monotony. Breakfast for supper and supper for breakfast. I just love an omelet for supper!

From April until November, I worked from about 2:00 a.m. until 10: a.m. to accommodate the others on the team who lived in Eastern Europe. Readjusting my sleep pattern wasn't that hard--I'm more of a nocturnal person anyway, but the eating schedule was really hard. I would eat breakfast around 3:00 a.m. (eggs!), my lunch at 8:30 a.m., supper at noon-1:00 p.m., nap until 5:30, eat a snack around 6:30 p.m. and go to bed around 8:30 p.m. Weekends were hard because I wanted to be up normal hours, but woke up at 3:00 a.m. starving. It has taken almost 2 months to get back to a normal schedule--but I still wake up at 4:30-5:00 a.m. and I'm HUNGRY.

This is true, but if you are truly suffering from insomnia my point was that going out and driving to a diner might not help you to get to sleepy.
Now if you simply can't sleep because you are used to being awake that time of day, then that's different. Go out grab something to eat, come home and fix a big breakfast for your family as they are waking up.
