Halloween candy that is!
The day has arrived. You know what that means. We'll be raiding our kids Halloween bag when they're not looking, or stealing a few treats that we bought to hand out to the kids.
We don't really have a set rule, when I feel I can't stand to watch them put one more sugar bomb in their mouths, I cut them off.
Then we collect all the candy and put it in one big bowl. I put a couple pieces in their lunch for a treat at school. The kids dabble in it when they get home from school. And I'm sure they sneak a piece or two, or three or four, here and there when mom's not looking. Okay, okay....I do it too.
After a few days, it mysteriously disappears. (I take it to work and let my co-workers chow down on the "fun size" calorie monsters.)
Did you see this years Halloween episode of The Middle?
You may or may not want to know the stats about calories, because I know the rule, what you don't know doesn't count, when it comes to calories. However, I've been trying to eat more healthy and keep those pesky extra calories down to a minimum, so it's better for me to know how much I'm consuming when I dig into the bag o' treats. Otherwise I'll need a good trick or two to get my jeans on!
Are you ready for the scaaarrriest part of Halloween?
