Cheese and crackers or PBJ sandwich with glass of milk. Either one does the trick for me when it's late and I really should not eat anything but am hungry.

A frozen waffle in the toaster, then spread on PB&J. A walk-around treat.

I eat peapods AND cucumbers ... he said with a certain virtuous tone ... though the cucumbers are tossed in with the peapods after they've been stir fried with pork, bean sprouts, onions, bamboo shoots, shitake mushrooms, and cabbage tossed in a hoisen sauce and rolled in a Mandarin pancake. (Yes - I'm talking about mu shu!)

(BURP!)

but making popcorn it makes everyone else around hate you!

alix, i've been buying some really good canadian (although they call it their domestic brand) prosciutto lately from a little italian deli near me that's owned by an actor that's on the new hbo series "boardwalk empire".

he plays deputy halloran, the gooney-looking, fair haired atlantic city cop.

anywho, the pro-shoot (lol, chefjune) is as good as di parma, maybe a bit saltier, at half the price.

i'll try to find out the brand name next time. you probably could get it even cheaper.

i forgot, along the lines of nighttime cravings, i also keep some vermont cheddar and good mustard in the fridge, along with multigrain crackers and onion.

the combo hits a lot of the cravings: salty, savory, crunchy, protein-y.

There are some sesame rice crackers from Costco that are absolutely killer. I put a shmear of smoked salmon cream cheese on them. Mmmmm.

I get my proscuitto from the Italian deli here. I have never checked the brand name. I'll go do that. Last time I was there I got an end chunk (about 2lbs) for $9!!! We ate a LOT of proscuitto that week.

I'm saying a week but I really don't remember how long it lasted...not long! I was inspired by this thread and went to the deli. I bought 2 proscuitto ends. One is in the freezer and the other is going to wrap asparagus for Thanksgiving on Sunday. MMMMMMMMM!
