Rosen and Reiss's informal survey found that ice cream eaten directly from the container is by far the favorite middle-of-the-night snack, followed by microwave popcorn. They offer some other ideas for late-night indulgences,
arranged by time of night (or early morning) and theme: 10:45, for example, is "Slumber Party Time," with recipes that should appeal to kids; 11:45 is for "Nightcapping," more sophisticated "bites" to serve a few friends after an evening out; and 5:30
means "First-Shift Foods" for early breakfasts. The text is amusingly written, and, although it's unlikely that many people will be preparing "Nighttime Salade Nitoise" at 1:15 in the morning, readers will find an eclectic array of appealing ideas for
snacks and little bites here. For most collections.
