What do you serve for a favorite snack?

 

For myself or with others? Right now I'm having a coffee and trying not to eat an entire 1lb tub of chocolate covered raisins.  I also enjoy tea with a cookie most days.  There's an oatmeal nut butter bar I like, and some smoked salmon spread in the fridge with my name on it.   For watching tv DH and I tend to go for something like a bowl of popcorn or crackers and cheese, sometimes with ham.  Every now and then we go wild and add pickles or olives. We went through a bag of mandarins over the holidays. 

 

If it's snacks for friends, like game night, I'm more likely to make something like a pan of brownies, or a big tub of dip with vegetables.  I tend to make bigger pans of dessert items when I don't have to eat the whole thing myself.

Wait. Serve *other* people my precious snack foods? That implies having guests. I don't do guests.

 

However, I'm not against bringing homemade treats at someone else's place.

 

Recently, it was cream sugar fudge.

Depends, do I actually like the people I'm giving snacks to? If yes then maybe a meat and cheese tray, some fresh fruit, crudites, maybe even something homemade and baked. If no (for instance my brother in law, perfect example) then maybe a little something less interesting. Like some tap water and that half bag of chips in the pantry that gave us intestinal distress last month. Everybody else gets something in between those two extremes.

When I have guests over (DnD doesn’t count, cause those people are family and they better bring snacks) I usually prepare a veggie tray with dips and a meat and cheese tray. If I’m feeling fancy I’ll make Caprese bread crisps.

I don't entertain, so sharing snacks isn't a thing I really do.  That and if there's a snack involved I'm usually scarfing it down as my own snack...

I always hit the snooze button five times, even though I get out of bed when the alarm first goes off. It becomes a repeating ten-minute timer so my tired butt doesn’t accidentally hyperfixate on something unnecessary, otherwise I’ll be late getting ready for work. I actually turn off the alarm five minutes after I log on to the remote office.

How many times did you hit the Snooze button today?

 

Once. I rolled over and checked my work email on my phone and saw I had nothing pressing to respond to this morning so I got in an extra fifteen of sleeping.

I like to bake cookies for my guests. Hot out of the oven cookies... Then I send them home with the rest, because I can't eat them anyway.

Seeing as it's my lovely Lilly who wakes me up, I can't exactly hit her. "Go to sleep, Lilly," and roll over is an option though. She was hot last night, so there was lots of panting in my face all night long. I was having rotten nightmares of driving my car off where a bridge was supposed to be (too many episodes of "Mayday" last night, I guess), so I was actually happy for hot doggy breath.
