Halloween (candy) season!

Today I went to the grocery store and bought some of the cheapest, least justifiable candy they sold--no Snickers, no Three Musketeers.  I bought the assorted boxed Lemon Heads et. al. and the Chick-O-Sticks, which are apparently tiny, plastic-twisted Butterfinger bars with no chocolate.  I figured I would be less tempted to eat the candy if it was disgusting to adult tastes.  So far this plan is not working, as I have found I actually enjoy the salty, peanut-ey taste of the Chick-O-Sticks (and they only have 70 calories per serving of three!).  I am looking forward to handing all the candy out on Saturday.
I also bought a small carving pumpkin, which, for now, I have decorated by stenciling with black paint and painting the stem:
Should be enough to let the trick-or-treaters know we have candy in this household!  At some point I will get my hands dirty and harvest the seeds for roasted pumpkin seed snacking!
