4 AM snack

Like most moms, I appreciate Tivo saving the shows I love to watch for later without interupting the daily schedule with the kids. And I have tapings of all my favorite shows like Grey's Anatomy, Oprah, Ellen, programs on travel channel and the food network channel. Problem is that I don't have time to watch any of it. So now I have about 2 months of taped programs to view, and I finally have to make an appointment with myself to watch Ina, Oprah, Ellen and more Ina (Grey's new season starts again in late August). I quickly skipped through reruns of Oprah and Ellen to shorten the viewing list. And thank goodness for fast forward buttons to skip through the commercials and close caption to speed watch! However, after 20 mins of Barefoot Contessa, I was ready for a snack. So off to the kitchen and this happens... Like they say, pictures say a thousand words... and then some!
Note to self: Don't watch food programes in the middle of the night!Found some mini peppers and fish paste in the fridge, put them together and I have this! Was out of almonds or I would have added that too after seeing Cooking Nija's stuffed peppers.
A little vegetable oil to fry up these little pretty peppers...
Found some leftover beehoon I made for lunch yesterday.... some sambal, fresh cut red chili and sweet sauce, and now I am ready to eat!
I was going to call this post midnight snack, but the fact of the matter is that I finally sat down to chow at 4 am. Some people I know consider this as breakfast, but I know I will be having cinnamon rolls when they are done at 9 am for breakfast...East Meets West Kitchen: Rich Cinnamon Buns

Your 4am snack looks so delish! I bet those colorful peppers are sweet. I need to go buy me more fish paste now. :)

Where did you get those cute mini peppers?

Hahaha, I can relate to this. When my mum and I used to watch Chinese videos together until early hours of the morning, we would be craving for instant noodles whenever we see the actors slurping on them as if they were the best food on earth!
I can't believe you actually had time to make stuffed chillies at that time of the morning though. :))

I have 12am or 1am snack. My tummy always calls me to feed it before I sleep. How to go on diet like that?
Cinnamon rolls? Tried twice before. F A I L U R E !! I GIVE UP. Too much hassle for me. I love the cinnamon buns sold in Penang Adventist Hospital.

Anonymous, you can find them at the grocery store like King Soopers, Safeway and Wholefoods.

Drvethru, haha! I was hungry and the mini chilis looked good! :)

Thanks Tigerfish!

Hi Alice, Yes! I remember the cinnamon buns at Penang Adventist too. I like to bake them cause the house smells so good afterwards... :)
