All the excitement that leads up to actually going trick-or-treating and then the sugar high that seems to last for 36 hours straight is enough to kill me.
We started a new tradition in our house this year for Halloween. The "Switch Witch" visited us this year. My oldest son is allergic to milk so about half the candy we get trick-or-treating contains milk. So every year after we get all the candy, we sort it out into what is safe for him and what has milk in it. So basically, all the candy bars go in to my pile. This year we took all the candy that contained milk and left it out for the "Switch Witch". While we were sleeping she took all the milk candy and switched it for some toys for the little Beanes. It was a huge hit! They all loved it. The "Switch Witch" is a great idea for your food allergic children.
Here are my top 5 picks for this week:
Sugar Cookie covered Oreos
Pan Crisped Salmon with Light Dijon Cream Sauce
Swedish Meatballs with Gravy
Oatmeal Butterscotch Bars with Brown Sugar Glaze
Peanut Butter Logs
That is what looks good to me this week. I am linking up with Finding Joy in my Kitchen. Go check her out.
