Oh, hell, no.

Not even talking 3 a.m. I scramble eggs most mornings for a two-year old, and a 40-minute affair of stirring is NOT in the cards.

This was me in my 20s. Bar close, then on to the local 24-hour diner. Coffee, omelet, buttered rye toast.

Then, no waking up to dishes.

I normally have leftovers from eating out, so if I was hungry I might take some of that, but I try not to eat late at night any more, so I go straight to bed, however if I had some terrible hunger at 3 am, it would be some cereal or a fiber bar. No cooking for sure. Years ago when I was young & single if I stumbled in home, hungry, I ate crackers with butter & garlic powder. lol Those were the days.

If I have been drinking, I want some fat to slow the absorption of alcohol and some salt to retain water, preventing dehydration. This I find is the ideal combination to stave off the possibility of a hangover.

A fast food meal fits this profile with high sodium and high fat, but I don't want to consume too many calories or sodium since I have already been drinking high calorie beverages, and it is really just overkill and also filled with preservatives and whatnot, so instead I want a small amount of food which must also be satiating and reasonably healthy.

Thus, my post going out meal is usually a handful (~1/4 cup) of salted roasted almonds and about 2 ounces of cheese. Comes in at about 350-400 calories. Doesn't distend my stomach, and is reasonably healthy unlike fast food.

The best would be smoked chubs, but they have fallen victim to the zebra mussel. Second choice would be pickled herring or pickled herring followed by a chocolate sundae. Third choice would be belly lox and cream cheese followed by cookies and milk.

That strikes me more as a beer snack than a post-going-out meal. But it might work after a "calm" night or if I'm not very hungry.

Pickled herring? Hmm, interesting. I like matjes herring from Ikea; they taste pickled too. I usually eat them on a cracker as a pre-dinner appetizer. Feels like a total mismatch with a chocolate sundae, though.

I am not going to eat another meal late at night, if I have already had my dinner out.

If I have been out for drinks, then I will eat my normal dinner when I get in, not 2 dinners in one night.

Of course! If I ate dinner while out, I won't eat anything after coming home. In my initial post, I was talking about scenarios where "going out" consists of an activity, rather than food.

Ok, if we are going to a show or something, I like to have a really easy meal when we get in, so I will either do a crockpot dish or have some frozen ravioli, which cook in under 5 minutes, when we get in.

I never cooked after coming home after 3AM. Sometimes I'd get a baconeggancheese or a regular breakfast of eggs homefries toast & bacon. Mostly just went home to sleep. When I was in college in Philly we would get diner breakfast or cheesesteaks.
