It's a post about cooking and eating late nights. :)

What are you doing at 12 A.M

Most reasonable people already know not to feed the gremlins after midnight, right?
Ok, according to the famous movie The Gremlins, I learned not to feed those little furballs past the midnight hour.

Why? Because they will pop and become small little evil creatures except

for my favorite gremlin (Gizmo). He was always so friendly even towards that mean ole' Stripe.

I know I should not be eating late, but here's a good excuse. Rico (the hubs) work late nights so, the only time we can eat together is at the crack of dawn. Over the years, I have become a master at fixing quick meals that we both love. And I even fix things that go great with watching movies. So, tonight I will be sharing my shrimp po boy subs that I paired with watching Bad Boys 2 on DVD.

 Midnight Food Diary: Making New Orleans Style Shrimp Po Boy Subs!

Ok, here's the simple version: I took a quick trip to Wolly World and got myself two bags of jumbo shrimp. I prefer peeled, deveined, and cleaned ones. Although I am going to clean them myself, I find it easier and quicker to buy already cleaned shrimp. Then I batter them with shrimp fry and drop in hot grease.

Then I love to butter two slices of soft sub bread. I know in New Orleans, most restaurants use a brioche bread. But, I just grabbed the first large sub size bread I saw at first.

 Then I can't resist sharing this next tip. A New Orleans Shrimp Po Boy is not ready until I add a side of crunchy and spicy Voodoo chips.
A midnight food diary: showing how to pile shrimp onto sub bread to make Po Boys

After shrimp are done, I pile them high on our sandwiches. Oh, and I also make a quick side salad that makes you slap yo momma. Or at least kiss the chef because it's so good.

But nonetheless, I guarantee if you make this quick dinner, everyone will be licking there fingers.

There you have it a quick Midnight Voodoo sub sandwich that has to be written down in my midnight food diary.

To top off our morning, I popped in a movie with a side of grape minute made juice.
