So Halloween weekend! I’ve never been ‘gung ho’ Halloween. I mean I love candy and parties…But dressing up is just a pain for the most part and it stresses me out! We are going to a Halloween party tomorrow and I do have my “costume”, except for my wig If it’s not in the mail tomorrow, I don’t know what I’m going to do. Also, my costume is kinda silly and people (except for the people at this party) won’t even know who I am until they see me with John, and even then, it’s very much a 2011 costume. I’m doing it for John though based on his “favorite” song (Don’t ever say I’m not a good wife ). Maybe I’ll post a picture later if it all works out. Are you dressing up for Halloween this year? If so, what are you being?
I totally failed in posting this on Wednesday like I had planned. Oh well, regardless of when I posted it, it is still delicious! This is modified from a Weight Watchers recipe that I found on Photo a Day, so that goes to show that it is low in calories too! But still so hearty and fulfilling!
