Very late night munchies (still feeling cheffy?)

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
It's very late. You're just in from the pub, club, dinner party where the the food didnt do it for you. Anyway you've got the munchies and you may be a little(or a little more) the worse for drink.
What do you eat? Grotty leftovers, or are you still able to wizz up a culinary delight.

For me its cornflakes. Or if i have it in me to "cook", a bowl of super noodles (3 minute flavoured ramen noodles.) Or toast and butter.

My leftovers are never grotty! :lol:

But if I didn't have, say, some cooked rice that I could nuke and add sesame oil, soy sauce, shichimi, and seaweed to, I'd make myself a cheese omelet. Or better yet, scramble an egg with cottage cheese.

Depends on the mood.

If savory, I'll make an omelette or a Monte Cristo, if sweet, it's always Bananas Foster.

White bread. Butter. Potato Crisps. Slice of processed cheese. Yum.

Or if there's any energy left - I agree with Gunnar.

Too True. But after a couple of rather naf experiences, no frying is allowed in our house after a trip to the pub. my lot dont do grilling either. So bacon butties are off the menu

The sight of 2 grown men (drunk as skunks) trying to put a bacon sandwich together is a) Laughable and b) v v scary

lol....ok..if I really had one of those nights....it's toast and peanut butter..if i REALLY had one of THOSE nights.. it's peanut butter on bread. no toaster when bread gets smooshed trying to be loaded into toaster. to be fair I am much older then the last time I couldn't fry an egg after the bar. but i do remember leaning on the counter pawing peanut butter out of a jar with a slice of bread more then once in my youth.:rolleyes:

I always have a freezer full of potstickers, so some dumplings would be in order.

If I'm hungry and lazy at the same time, I'll go for Stouffer's frozen mac'n'cheese with either hot sauce or Penzey's maharaja curry spices. If I have some fresh tomatoes, I'll slice a few to have with it. If I don't have that mac'n'cheese, I'll have toast with eggs over easy and hot sauce.

In either case, the hot sauce I prefer is Bufalo brand chipotle sauce, or canned chipotles in adobo sauce.

Never understood the need to eat burnt bread myself. Husand and mother-in-law are right into them too.
With you on the ayrshire bacon tho. they do grow fab spuds too dont they? I was driving to Stranraer 2 weeks ago and picked some up on the way. Sooo much better than the supermarket. Pity its such a short season tho.

We always have chips and salsa around. Or, if I can function and actually cook something I'll make nachos or a panini.
What a relief! To find out after all these years that I'm not crazy. I'm just culinarily divergent...

I think the well-fired thing is built into the Scottish genes...!
Tatties? Yes - I remember hearing about friends of rellies who used to spend the summer 'tattie howking' in Ayrshire. It made them enough to keep themselves at Uni for the first term of the year!

Many, many, many, moons ago (1987)......while living on St Simons Island (just off the coast of Georgia) I ran a restaurant with a good friend from Atlanta. We'd often just hang out at the bar afterward and have an after close party (aka Rumpleminze Party) with staff and some friends. Even if we headed out to a place called Side Street we'd often end up back at the restaurant for food. The one request I received quite a bit was for a omelet I would make with shaved, left over prime rib.... mushrooms, spinach, Swiss Gruyère, tarragon and chives then it was all topped with Mornay sauce. Made many of those after tying one on. I'd have to say that many times I would get creative in the kitchen after tying one on. Most often with eggs or what ever was handy in the fridge. Even made pasta one night for myself and a couple friends after hitting places when I lived in Atlanta. Unfortunately, married life greatly curtailed this late-night ritual.....actually........ it eliminated it. Doohhh!!!! :look:

For me, it's a cheese crisp-- a handful of grated cheese cooked on a flour tortilla with tomatoes, onions, black olives, sour cream, and lots of hot sauce. Or a Spanish mallorquín, which is essentially a grilled cheese sandwich with greasy Spanish sobrasada. Mmm...

I'm dead sober and I still want both.

If I'm still sober: nachos with guacamole and salsa, or maybe something tinned on toast and covered with cheese (tuna mayo, salmon mayo, beans)
If I'm not: chips and cheese
If I'm really not: Pot Noodle

HaHa Thats exactly the same for 2 of my boys, with addition of rice crispies. Thankfully there have their own homes now, but no3 son is in training

I'd certainly go for chips and cheese myself if i could be bothered walking to the chipper. Oven chips just arnt the same
