Just last night, filled a large glass bowl with kale, then added olive oil, balsamic vinegar, black pepper. Lid on and shook it like I meant it. Best thing I've tasted in a while.

What do you eat on those nights?
Is ice cream acceptable ?
For a treat I have generic brand freezer pops on hand. They are cheap at Walmart and only 30 calories each. They satisfy my sweet tooth without adversely affecting my blood sugar.
At times when I want something salty I keep roasted peanuts on hand or hickory almonds.

Salami, cheese, and crackers. If I have some Knorr Vegetable dip in the fridge, I spread that on the Triscuits and put salami and cheese on top.

Tasted? ... You ATE that?

Sorry, ddm2k, but I wouldn't put that on my compost heap.

I suppose it might......if one had ice cream. Curiously enough, however, that is one of those items that I don't buy at the grocery, don't have around the house. Last time I did was back in 2015 after dental surgery.

Around here, the old quick fall back meal is that of peanut butter tortillas. They are quick, easy, and quite filling.

And the not so quick fall back? Cooking up a bowl of spaghetti, perhaps with a "cold" topping of a can of fish, a green spice, Parmesan. A hot topping would be cooking the fish in a cup of wine with a mixture of spices and various cheeses.

I do. If I'm hungry and tired, anything is possible. I like to graze.

Sometimes I turn on a recorded cooking show and make what they made.
Or I go to the store and buy something I’ve never made before.

Yesterday, I bought two kinds of prepared frozen fish dishes that were on sale...a shrimp with lime sauce and a stuffed flounder. They are in my freezer waiting for “one of those days”.
