Midnight Snack: Greek Nachos
Thanks to my husband I am now on a complete night-time schedule. I wake up in the late afternoon and go to bed a little bit before morning. It's not a good schedule for the body but I would never see my husband if I weren't on this schedule. I'm promising myself that I will start a day-time schedule again in a month or two. Hopefully he'll be switched to day crew by June.
So I haven't been eating well on this new schedule. Breakfast is around 1pm. Lunch around 8 or 9pm and then a snack around midnight (or later). Most of these "meals" are really snacks.
Tonight I needed something substantial around midnight but was too lazy to make a meal. I saw the tortilla chips on the counter and knew that I had cheese in the fridge but I didn't want regular ol' cheddar nachos. So I mixed it up.
This is what I came up with....
Tortilla Chips (pita chips would probably work great too)
English cucumber, diced
Cherry red or golden tomatoes, diced and seeded
Olives, diced (optional)
Roasted Red Pepper, diced (optional)
Crumbled Feta (Trader Joe's Mediterannean feta)
Fresh ground black pepper
Crushed Red pepper flakes, to taste
It was just a late-night idea/craving but it actually ended up tasting great!
