…because I’m giving you a holiday recipe. (And yes those are pumpkins and bats you see next to my gingersnap shortbread man. Maybe I’m the one who’s still in a Halloween trance.)
And even though I’m feeding you this recipe, I really don’t want to think about Thanksgiving right now because I have a serious belly fat hangover (literally) issue going on here. It’s not pleasant.
This is why you should not buy trick-or-treating candy any sooner than an hour before the trick-or-treaters come. You know what’s going to happen when you buy it advance? The notion of little, tempting boxes of crunchy, tangy Nerds sitting in your pantry by your healthy stack of almonds will infiltrate your mind Inception style and you will not be able to concentrate on biology and will have to run upstairs to get a box of Nerds.
