Quirky midnight snacks – Strange cravings are meant to be indulged

Some people need their food to be separated neatly on plates with no edges or sauces touching.

Me? I have no issues mixing foods. In fact, I often go out of my way to eat multiple foods together at once, even if it’s not the traditional way to eat them.

Khorre teases me on a regular basis about my once nightly habit of eating spaghetti and boiled* eggs. I couldn’t get enough of them and it took weeks to kick the craving.

Others aren’t really strange to me at all, but because I’ve walked through the kitchen with a bowl more than once and gotten a “Really Jessi? Seriously??” I figure maybe they’re not as normal as I suspected. So this last month, I started taking pictures of some of my snack fests, just in case.

Spaghetti, french fries, ketchup, and yes, brown mustard there, too. I wish I could say I tried to keep them separated, but most bites had some of each.

Chips dipped straight into the avocado. What? Sometimes I don’t want to bother with the knife and spoon process.

Orzo rice with french onion dip gravy, along side lettuce and salsa for a pseudo-salad.

Lamb. We’ll leave it at that. Shhh.

This one’s normal, right? Quick sandwich of bologna I got for free, sliced tomatoes, avocado, and Italian dressing.

Leftover corn on the cob….no butter, no salt, eaten over my laptop. Not exactly the cleanest snack, but could be worse.

Cream cheese and pepperoni sandwiches

Who am I kidding? I don’t take the time to make several mini-sandwiches. It’s usually eaten more like this:

Dipping pepperoni in a spoonful of cream cheese is much more convenient. Hey, I never claimed they were healthy snacks…

*If it’s hard-boiled, I add butter. If it’s soft-boiled, I let the yolk make the creaminess and just add salt and pepper as usual.

    Lol, it is. It’s on the lesser side of cooked…medium rare to rare piece of lamb, but it looks worse in the picture than it actually is. I think. >< :P
