I have a recipe for Sweet and Sour Meatballs that is what I make when it don’t know what to make, but I think the thread is about what to eat if I’m by myself.

Lord forgive me, but I’m probably going to eat sour cream and salsa, with some tortilla chips, go to bed, and read a book.

Cheese & crackers. A lot of ways to do eggs. Steam some vegetables. There's always delivery or takeout. No shame in ice cream on occasion.

If you sprinkle walnuts or pecans on bread before you put your cheese on, melt in microwave and MAN! Good stuff.
I might do ice cream but nothing else.

I tend to gravitate towards cereal.

What do you eat on those nights?
Is ice cream acceptable ?
Not only is it acceptable, but it is preferable.
Plus if you drizzle it with Creme de Cocoa or Cointreau and top it with crushed potato chips you will have a meal complete in the four essential food groups: sugar, fat, salt and alcohol!

Made me laugh, Pamela!

In the summer sometimes I'll eat ice cream and fruit when I can't think of what I want. I also like a bowl of oatmeal and keep frozen blueberries handy just for that. Sometimes I boil some rice, put in a pat of butter, some curry powder, golden raisins and slivered almonds.

Mixed nuts and fruit is good. And we both like nachos or hummus and pita chips. Anything hors d' oeuvres-y.

Two days ago DH brought home the biggest purple plums I've ever seen. The one he ate was so juicy he ate it over the sink then said he thought that would take care of supper that night

I thought, Gosh, we must be getting old. I remember seeing my mom eating over the sink because supper was going to be very light and there was no sense in dirtying dishes. LOL.

I'm having one of those moments right now. Tired but hungry. Should I make tea? With cheese and maybe - eh too lazy to get up.

Hmmm sounds delicious! Just took a bag of walnuts out of the freezer today. Maybe I'll have nachos....

Yup, more and more often I find myself scrounging stuff from the fridge, composing nut-cheese hors d'oeuvres or some other nameless concoction and eating it standing up. I don't even want to use a plate or sit down! Jaysus, when did I get so old and/or lazy
I just got up hungry and not tired, but I will not raid the fridge now, so g'night y'all.
