Question Afternoon treat

Do you have a favorite afternoon treat? It seems that about midday, my batteries need recharging. Being I can't have caffeine, I make myself a cup of Decaffeinated French Vanilla instant coffee everyday about 2:00. I found a new brand at Target, it's made by Archer Farms. Very good. How about you, what do you do for an afternoon lift?

My afternoon pick up is saltines, topped with some shredded cheese...then microwaved.

No wonder you're up so late!!

I usually like carbs mid-afternoon. I'll have a handfull of tortilla chips, or some cheese and crackers. If we have trail mix in the house, I'll dip into that, too. Once it's warmer, it'll be easier to eat veggies and dip or some fruit.

Mid-afternoon used to be my junk food snacking time but now that Sofie has an afternoon snack, too, I'm trying to set a better example.

If we are in town my snack is a london fog and if Aidan has earned it, we go share a chocolate cake donut. I've never been a huge donut fanatic but there is this new place in town, yummy donuts.

If we are home, I get snackish for chips and usually we don't have any. I like to make extra cheese sauce when I make my mac and cheese, so that I can dip tortilla chips in it later. I suppose you could call it cheese fondue. lol.

As a late riser I rarely do lunch, and I ususally supply myself with afternoon munchies during the course of the day. Yogurts, fruits, pieces of chocs, waffles or biscuits, or if I am hungrier maybe a little panino.
When I was in England, sometimes I skipped breakies so I could enjoy proper high tea late in the afternoon to the full scale!

These days it is late afternoon when I am feeling peckish, and I have to be careful that I don't eat a lot then, because otherwise I'm not hungry when DH gets home from work. I need to figure out the right afternoon snack for me!

We usually have coffee mid afternoon and sometimes I'll do the spoon into the peanut butter jar thing, or eat a handful of grapes.
