Church usually does a fall carnival with games, bounce houses, "Trunk or Treat, hot dogs and popcorn for the neighborhood kids. Sadly, not this year. I suspect my only T or T'er will be my grandson.

My county health dept has banned trick or treating for this year.  Wonder if the candy has been marked down?

 

After an uproar, the county revised their Halloween guidance on trick-or-treating from "Not Permitted" to "Not Recommended" 

Per the local paper, the state will be issuing guidance soon that should make it easier for counties to maintain consistency with neighboring areas. 

I rarely got many kids.  My neighborhood has no streetlights and few sidewalks so it's really not a hotbed for trick-or-treating anyway.  I used to give out those lunchbox-sized packs of chips, Fritos, Doritos, Cheetos, pretzels, etc and happily scarf up the leftovers.  It won't hurt me to skip that practice!

Lordy...a co-worker brought in some "fun-size" Butterfinger candy bars (packaged for Halloween). The co-worker said they didn't taste right. I explained how the company that made Butterfingers had been sold and the new owner "improved" (ha!) the recipe. The co-worker left them in the break room where I am certain they will be eaten by the unsuspecting.

Definitely not a Halloween "treat".>:( xD

Last year we did trick or treating but no get together to eat. Given the kids involved either attend the same school/grade or are old enough to be vaxxed (and all the adults involved are), we're thinking we will be able to go back to eating after. The first year we hosted Halloween we did simple rigatoni with tomato sauce and ricotta as an option (there's a vegetarian in the crowd). After that we started saying the heck with it and ordering pizza. :)  Just have to order far in advance. Sometimes I get dessert, sometimes we steal candy from the kids.  But apparently I won't be stealing Butterfingers this year!

See if you can find Clark bars - they are made with real chocolate and are FAR superior to Butterfingers.
