    Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night and feel hungry? Do you sneak downstairs and raid the fridge? Or perhaps you sometimes stay up way past midnight and crave some food in the early hours of the morning.

    I'm certainly guilty of the latter and the one thing that hits the spot, is cheese on toast with lots of Worcestershire sauce. What foods do you crave for if you stay up late or wake up in the night?

    I have periods, I'm a night person, wife goes to bed around 10 and I around 11.30 or even 1 am. If I havnt eaten during the day, I might do cheese on toast with bacon onion and tomatoe. Occasionally I might heat something up. I havnt eaten at night for about 3 or 4 months. Mainly because I've been working a bit. I'm also known to open a can of baked beans and eat cold out of the tin late at night.

    Next level is if you make with your own raspberry jam/ jelly.

    Sometimes I just skip the whole "jam" idea and put fresh raspberries on top.

    You really need to taste the difference between store and home made. We grow our own raspberries. And strawberries. This season we only got just under 2 kgs, but the year before I picked 9 kgs.
    Home made rules around here.

    Agreed. Fresh and wild simply tastes better. Our family used to go blueberry and raspberry picking in northern Michigan. The next morning, my Mom would make the greatest pancakes. Yummmmmmy.

    Any suggestions for using the blueberries?? Jam?? Pie???
    We eat them as we buy them, they don't last long.

    This happened to me a couple of nights ago. We'd made a Caesar salad for supper using some leftover chicken. The chicken was tough, so we didn't end up eating much. I woke at 03:00 feeling ravenous. Nothing much in the fridge so I sneaked down to the hotel bar and managed to raid a couple of sandwiches from the chiller. Tuna and cucumber in whole grain bread really hit the spot. If I'm peckish at bedtime I usually have some cheese.

    It is there for guests to help themselves to a snack when the restaurant is closed.

    I don't think I've ever actually done that, especially when I was younger - I would've got told off by my mother.
