Every year I load up on barrels of candy for fear that our small street of five children will suddenly decide to bring all their friends. When all is said and done, I've managed to pass out a handful of candy bars while effectively sabotaging my chances of watching my weight over the holidays.
This year I got smart.
Instead of dumping all the candy in a gigantic bowl that would tempt me all day and night, I bought a bunch of halloween bags and stowed bunches of candy in each one, secured by a little tie. I did this for the neighborhood kids, as well as for my husband's co-workers who will receive them on our annual Halloween excursion to the office. (Though, considering the current state of the market, black and orange colored flasks containing a pumpkin flavored liquor may be more appropriate).
I am SO ready to beat the candy...right after I finish off the extra pieces of candy that didn't fit into the 40 bags I purchased at Target.
I am SO not ready to beat the candy.
