Jet lag is a bummer. But it can have a silver lining — you can add meals at the oddest time of the day or night and have a perfectly good excuse to indulge… Here’s one of my nearly instant midnight snacks in our little rented Parisian flat (finding this kind of food at midnight in a snazzy hotel is a little harder to do). Take out three bags of different types of pre-washed salad greens from the fridge and pile some onto a plate. Add some sliced golden apples for flavor and texture. Dress with some bottled Maille Vinaigrette. Yup, bottled grocery purchased salad dressing. I don’t often buy salad dressing, but this is one of the best I have ever purchased. I liked it so much (good red wine vinegar, obviously some maille mustard and just the right balance of salt and other seasonings), I wanted to bring a few dozen bottles of salad dressing home!
A few slices of bread, some slices of jambon or ham and a shmear of brie (or was it camembert?) and I was one happy camper. It’s hard to go back to sleep right after this midnight snack, but at least there’s no risk of getting hungry before a proper breakfast.
