Talking Do you enjoy any weird but simple snacks?

1) One of my favorites is large pretzel rods dipped in ranch dressing.
2) Small curd cottage cheese (lotsa S&P) with tortilla chips.
3) Lo-cal Quick chocolate smoothie (In a blender, combine a few ice cubes, 2 packs of hot cocoa mix, a couple of tablespoons of vanilla yogurt, and skim milk. Blend well) Really refreshing on a hot day.
4) Greek peppers on soda crackers.
5) Hot boiled peanuts and a beer
6) Pork rinds and a coke (This is about the only time I'll indulge in a soft drink)
7) Thin sliced roast beef and horse radish sauce on Triscuits.
8) scratch-made chocolate chip or peanut butter cookies frozen hard in the freezer and a glass of skim milk. (I don't remember where freezing perfectly good cookies came from but it endures to this day)

Fresh sage leaves, lightly fried crisp in a little butter. Delish.

When deskinning chicken, I like to render the skin down in a frying pan (lowish heat) until it releases its fat and the skin goes crisp.

If I want to feel full but trying to cut back on calories, a quick snack is to cook up some oatgerm with water (pinch of salt) until a thick porridge. Then pour it into a bowl and top it with a little molasses sugar and some milk.

I like to take Cashew nuts and grind them down to almost a powder in my small FP. Then I eat it with a spoon.

I also like to sprinkle it on a Fluffanutter sandwich.

Smoked oysters
Pickled herring in sour cream

I know there are others. These are just the ones that spring to mind because my wife always tells me they are weird.

Ruffles Sour Cream and Onion potato chips dipped in cottage cheese. I can no longer trust myself with them, so I don't buy chips anymore.

Aww that is commendable! Here in UK, we call potato chips, crisps! I favour the hand cooked, unsalted ones.

I am a crispaholic! My name is amy and it's been 18 hours since my last packet of crisps.
