    I sort of missed breakfast this morning and was starting to feel rather hungry whilst doing my daily jobsearch trawl round the 'web.

    So ..... off to the fridge and have just eaten a cold onion bhaji left over from last night's curry - yum !

    So, what sort of things have you eaten at weird times ? (I suspect Arro may have some stories due to her working hours !) :D

    If I have pizza left over in the fridge from the night before, I love that in the morning, cold of course. Tastes better in some ways

    most tomato sauce based dishes taste better the day after, it gives the tomato sauce time to be absorbed, this goes for pizza, pasta and other such mixes
    Lasagna is far better the day AFTER it's cooked (provided you reheat it accordingly of course)

    They have some 24h restaurant chains here, I have been known to drop into dennys at 2am and have a good old breakfast cook up :)

    Pizza is always good after the fact, I don't chill it though, just eat it out the box cold

    Nothing really weird about my choices though lol

    here's a good recipe for any time.

    Whisk two eggs together with a pinch of salt in a bowl

    Make two cheese sarnies without butter.

    cut the sarnies into four and dip in the egg then fry untill golden and the chese is melted on both sides.

    Then either use Ketchup or salad cream. It doesn't work with brown sauce.

    I have eaten them since I was about 4 and still have them today.

    great food for when you need a quick snack :)

    Well what I eat isn't weird per se - in the perspective that I eat comparitive to the amount of time I've been up and about (and plan to go to bed) not what the time of day is.

    For work I'll often pick up a Tesco's Healthy Living chicken dinner or similair, especially for the early shifts when decent food generally isn't available when I'm aiming to go on lunch.

    So, a standard food day would possibly consist of:

    4:30am - bowl of bran flakes (skimmed milk)

    9:00am - roast chicken dinner

    3:00pm - fruit smoothie or toast

    7:00pm - something on toast

    So I suppose the only 'odd' one is the chicken dinner :)

    And on the line of GBLs snack get some puff pastry (don't worry cook-phobics you can buy it premade) top with cheese and bacon and chuck it into the oven for around 20 minutes.

    Or knock up some savoury rice by cooking up normal rice in stock water.

    Done that when I was a student, haven't done it in a while. Off work on Sunday might have that again :)

    Arro, try it with some soy sauce on the cheese :)

    I had a roast dinner at 6am a few weeks back, it was 1 hour to go before the end of my shift.

    Making pasta at 3am is also a bit odd I think but like Arroryn, it depends how long I've been up, not what time it is. I had cereal for breakfast today... at 5pm :P
