The best thing for me late to keep my stomach from growling and keeping me awake is a moderate bowl of coconut cream pudding or a piece of coconut cream pie.

Stop saying coconut cream! Is this some sort of evil plot?

Last night I was in Atlantic City, and on the way out of the casino there is a bakery with all these fancy cakes and things and they had these individual coconut cream pastries, sort of the size of a muffin, COVERED with coconut in a creamy frosting...

Blood sugar. Weight. Cholesterol. I MUST SAY NO!!!!!

Husband #1 played in a band; when the gig was over we’d all go over to the pancake place that was open. Some towns didn’t have such a place but most did. Usually it was IHop or Denny’s. But always pancakes.

Me three on the Cherry Coke Zero - I am not a fan of carbonated beverages in general, but this is like a guit-free dessert I allow myself almost daily.

For a late night meal, it has to be quick, cheap, easy, and greasy - microwaved nachos with jarred queso or sliced sharp cheddar, microwaved until melted and bubbling. Served with guac, sour cream, and/or mango peach salsa, plunked right on top.

A hot pocket, Jimmy Dean breakfast croissant, frozen shredded beef chimichanga, or even Bibigo dumplings also would hit the spot. They are all easy to prep for eating, i.e. microwave.

I see sweet baked goods are more of a dessert than a late-night snack. All that sugar would only make me hyper, and at the wrong time to boot. Which is right before bed. Unless, maybe, I chase it with a shot of rum in a matching flavor (like Bacardi Coco with those muffins you mentioned), which puts it on a whole different plane of unhealthy. But oh well; just count it toward your cheat day .

There is an alternative to my beloved coconut cream pudding which does help prevent side effects from NSAID and that is a Keylime Pie Yougurt that’s low fat without additional sugar.
