I lived through yesterday thinking all day long it was Thursday, so according to my convoluted calendar this post is spot on. For the rest of you who seem to know what day of the week it is, apologies and congratulations to you for being in the now.
Because Halloween is approaching I am changing the tone of this post just a tad. (Well that, and the fact that I screwed up the lettering on my gift of the week and don't have time to correct it right now. We are having overnight guests tonight and since I thought I had another day to get ready for them, I am scrambling to clean the entire upstairs before they get here)
1 bag smore's m & m's
1 bag candy corn m & m's
1 bag candy corn
1 can cocktail peanuts
Mix these suckers together in a large bowl. Put them into a serving container that has a lid. I have a glass pumpkin I picked up for a buck or 2 a long time ago and it actually looks pretty good in it. ( When the kids were young I used to keep bubble gum balls that looked like eyeballs in it but we have grown beyond Eyeballs of Terror) I suggest putting a spoon out beside it just to keep people from putting their hands all over it. If you have some Halloween muffin liners it would be nice to set them out on the side as well. This tastes like a Payday candy bar with some melty and crunchy bits added to it. I am not a big fan of candy corn or Payday's so this is a really good thing for me to have hanging around. It is candy that I can take or leave and when it is possible I prefer to have something I am indifferent to living in a candy jar.
Now go wrestle up some spooks, spirits or bags of candy and get your Halloween on!
