This Halloween has been full of tricks and treats.
Unfortunately the trick part of the day was not a fun one and it was one that I did to myself.
I was backing out of our garage on my way to the grocery store to pick up candy for tonight’s trick-or-treaters when BAM, I ran into the side of the garage.
I was trying to avoid a car that was parked in our driveway and was concentrating on not hitting that car with the back of my car and totally neglected my side mirror.
I already got an estimate on the damage and to simply replace the mirror and the cracked white casing will be nearly $500. I’m planning to see if there are junkyards nearby or if I may be able to order the part online before shelling out that much dough.
You better believe I filled myself up with lots of treats after that nasty trick.
The peanut butter Snickers from that pack are all but gone.
Dinner tonight was festive in colors.
Orange + Black!
Black beans, roasted sweet potatoes and squash served as sides to chicken breasts that I pan fried after seasoning them with mesquite seasoning.
And now I’m hoping for lots of Trick-or-Treaters! I have a very full candy bowl and can’t wait to see some cute and scary costumes.
