Midnight Cravings

Last night at 2:30 a.m. I wake up out of a sound sleep.

Photobucket

It doesn't have to be cookies.

Me. WANT. SHOOOOOGARRRR!

Problem is, I don't keep it around. Well, I kindasorta do: I buy Little Debbie and Hostess crapola treats for my husband for the simple reason that I don't like that stuff. I like fresh, donut-shop donuts. I like homemade pie ("homemade" defined as anything I have to, yanno, actually bake in the oven; in the Garsee household, the fact that it came out of a box does not make it any less homemade with the exception of pizza). I especially looove ice cream.

but there's nothing to be found in the freezer, the fridge, the cupboards, under the couch cushions...in the trunk of my car on the neighbor's back porch (sorry, Bob--that was me). Ab. So. Lute, Ly NOTHING!!! Not even a crummy cookie unless you count a box of Milkbones.

Elijah: Those are cookies.

Me: No, they're not.

Elijah: YOU call them cookies! All the time, you say: "Elijah! Wanna cookie? Come get your cookie!" blah, blah.

Me: Elijah, those are not "real" cookies.

Elijah: ??? You--you've been lying to me all this time?

Me: OK, let me rephrase that: Those are dog cookies, Eli. Not human cookies.

Elijah: ...whimper, whimper...sniff.

Me: WHAT?!

Elijah: I--I'm not human?

Anyway, I settled for a bowl of sugary cereal (though less sugary than I remember from childhood), watched 30 minutes of a Lifetime movie (Tiffany Theissen is married to some peeping Tom and just found out she's pregnant), and finally conked back out.

Seriously, am I the only person who jolts straight up out of a perfectly sound sleep with an uncontrollable sugar craving? Raise hands if you do.

(And throw me a cherry pie)

As fat as I am I probably should have midnight cravings but I rarely eat after 9pm. Part of that is a heartburn issue. Usually if I get up in the night it's just to use the bathroom or sometimes to get a drink.

I do all that, too. But the cravings are the worst. One day I'll wake up on the floor in front of my fridge.

A few months ago I had a pretty serious cookie craving, so my husband went out and got the stuff and baked me some cookies. The next day I discovered that he'd bought a HUGE TUB of pre-made cookie dough. Over the next week or so, I ate a spoonful every time I opened the refrigerator. Once I could see the bottom of the tub, I realized I had a problem. I either had to replace the tub so he wouldn't realize how much raw cookie dough I'd eaten, or quickly eat the rest and hope he forgot we'd ever had a huge tub of cookie dough.

I ate the rest. And then I didn't say the word "cookie" for two months.

LOLOL! I LOVE raw cookie dough. I totally ignore the warning sign on the label.

Not anymore. I can get (fake) sweets. What I want is potatoes. And pasta. Preferably big thick gooey WHITE lasagna noodles.

Sugar
Try being told NO MORE SUGAR. Talk about going through withdraws! Then I discovered some pretty good sugar free treats. But some days the body doesn't fall for it. It wants real sugar.

Re: Sugar
Oy, I hear you! Anyone who thinks sugar isn't addictive is crazy. Sometimes nothing else works.
