You know, like a late Saturday afternoon? Lunch is in the rear view mirror and dinner is still hours away. You’re hungry as a sumbitch, and something needs to happen. Or it’s 8 pm, and dinner didn’t quite fill the void? Chips and crap like that just ain’t gonna get it done. You need some real food, but don’t have the energy or wherewithal to do any actual cooking. Or you’re getting ready to hit the dormancy platform at 1:00 am and realize you’re really freaking hungry?
What do you do? I have trouble with this. I always want something more substantial than just a bowl of Rice Krispies (although that ain’t bad, especially with sliced bananas), but don’t want to break out actual pans ‘n’ shit. I need some tips. I know a sandwich is always a good option, but a good one requires some effort. And some ingredients. I don’t like just a couple of slices of ham on two pieces of sad and flaccid bread. That’s garbage. It’s hard to maintain and calibrate all the proper sandwich components. Ya know?
It might seem weird, but I like to make a giant container of salad every weekend. I buy all sorts of ingredients and it takes me an hour to chop it all up. That hits the spot until Tuesday or so, when it starts going brown on us. So, that’s not an everyday solution.
A simple one that’s really good and satisfying is two scrambled eggs on toast, with a couple of slices of sharp cheese. I do that several times per week, and it’s nothing short of delightful. And it takes roughly four minutes to prepare. But I feel like there should be many other options like that. I should have a dozen such things in my arsenal, but it’s like I have a block and can’t think of others. Oh… grilled cheese is a one good. And I make a damn good grilled cheese, thank you very much.
But help me out here. I’m struggling. I need more between-meal ideas. I’m very limited in my options, ’cause I’m snacktarded. You’d think a man who throws such a large shadow would have this down to a science by now. But I feel like I’m in need of outside help. What do you eat when it’s between feeding times, and you need more than just a handful of Funyuns, or whatever? Help me out, won’t you? Tell us all about it in the comments.
And please don’t suggest soup. Soup is bullshit.
Before I call it a day here, I’d like to alert you to a new episode of the WORLD FAMOUS podcast, which I posted late last night/early this morning. I like this one, which is somewhat rare. Check it out right here, or wherever you get podcasts.
And I’ll see you guys again soon.
Have a great day!
