Are you ready for the big night? I am not Claire from Modern Family - no haunted house or Little Bo Peeps here (although my husband does remind me of Phil). But I do try and invite the neighbors over and cook something yummy to offset all that sugar!
And I do have a great costume:
As to the menu:
We are starting at 5:00 with killer Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites,
Armed with our Gluten Free Candy list (and an umbrella) we will go trick or treating with our neighbors.
Then we will come back for Hot Apple Cider and a big pot of Lentil soup and the trading will begin.
This will be our 8th year being gluten free and the easiest way to deal with all the candy we can't eat because it is not GF, is to trade it!
The kids dump all of their candy on the floor, sort the good from the bad, and then trade the bad with their friends or with me for some cold hard cash (honestly, I'd rather give them $5 than have them eat most of that candy anyway). We have done this for the last several years and everyone is happy in the end.
What are your plans?
