Help! I have too much Halloween candy left over!!

Friday, November 01, 2013

Last night was Trick-or-Treat in our neighborhood.  It's one of my favorite nights of the entire year!  I LOVE seeing all the kids dressed up, and I love that I get to make each one smile, if only for a moment.  My hubby loves being the house that gives out full-size candy bars.  Yep, that's right!  I said candy bars.  We DO hand out candy for Halloween. 

Last night was fun.  Even Cinder, our dog, got in on the fun:

She helped me hand out candy and was an absolute angel with all the children. 

There was one problem with last night, though.  It was rainy, windy, and miserable.  Consequently, there were very few kids compared to past years.  Guess what that means?  Lots and lots of extra candy and chips just laying around the house.  Not exactly music to the ears of someone who is trying to lose weight.  So what to do?

I am someone who cannot have candy in the house.  If it's here, I WILL eat it.  So, I sent some to work with the hubby, and I took some to work with me.  We gave some to friends.  I just had to get the temptation out of the house!

That's how it works for me.  After all:

Fridge, pantry, office, etc.  The reverse is also true.  If you keep junk in your house, you will eat junk!
