Ready and Waiting

Happy Halloween!

We are now ready and waiting for any trick-or-treaters who most likely will not may come our way. Unfortunately, I don’t think the weather is supposed to be all the great today, so I guess we’ll see how all that goes.

Either way, I am stocked up on two of my favorites: 100 Grand and Twix bars. I realize that I could have easily gotten away with just getting one bag; but while I was out, I was faced with about 10 different kinds and got totally overwhelmed. I wanted them ALL. Luckily, Jay will be able to take any excess in to work with him so it’s no big deal.

Orrrrrr, we’ll just keep them here and take care of them all ourselves? Winking smile

Last Night’s Dinner

We had some good stuff happenin’ over here for dinner last night!

Jay cooked up a few chicken breasts and I prepared myself a piece of salmon that I bought earlier this week. It was really super simple – I brushed it with a little olive oil, sprinkled it with Old Bay Seasoning and dill weed, put a few lemon slices on top, and baked it in the oven (350 degrees) for about 20 minutes. It was delicious.

I also managed to convince Jay to cook up some oven roasted potatoes. Yes, I could have done it, but he makes them sooooo much better than I do.

No idea what he does to make them, but I’ll let him keep that secret for himself because as soon as I know it, that means he has no reason to make them anymore. Mwahaha.

Later in the evening, while watching The Voice (gosh, I love that show!) I treated myself to a mug of hot chocolate and two pieces of Halloween candy.

I mean, the stuff is sitting right in front of my face…I’m not going to not eat it. Chocolaty and delicious.

Breakfast

I am so, so happy…my bread turned out great! And really, I’m always game for a little chocolate at breakfast.

Be on the lookout for the recipe this afternoon, once I get it all typed out.

As much as I could have easily made a breakfast of just the bread, I knew I needed a little more than chocolate and peanut butter. So I also cooked up a couple of scrambled eggs with sautéed spinach and feta.

And ketchup. YUM.

And with that, I’m off! Catch ya soon with a recipeeeee. Winking smile

    With those two kinds of chocolate in MY house, I doubt there’d be a lot left for any Trick-or-Treaters. I’ve also consumed my weight in candy corn this year. SHAME :P haha

    Im sooo excited for Halloween this is the first I live in a house where I can pass out candy. I got my childhood favorite kit kats and some others that im not as big of a fan of so I wont eat a bunch hehe. I also bought a regular sized twix bar and a bag of m&ms for any kid that I see that has a really awesome costume. So excited!

    Looks like a healthy and simple dinner! LOVE that!
    Good job only eating two. If i’m near a lot of candy and chocolates, it’s pretty much going to be consumed in masses after the first one (especially Halloween candy because they’re small/bite-sized).
