The other day I was sitting around, tweeting about how I was thinking about having ice cream for dinner. I mean let’s be honest, there have been been several times in my life when I have had ice cream for dinner. I had ice cream for dinner as recently as two weekends ago. It had cherries in it. That means it’s health food.
Jen suggested that cake and popcorn would also be great dinner options.
In my mind I was all like, “oooh cake! oooh popcorn! oooh popcorn shaped into a cake!”
End of riveting story.
If you live in one of those neighborhoods where kids come ’round trick-or-treating, that’s great. I live in an apartment building and no one rings our buzzer on Halloween unless we’ve ordered a pizza. But if you live in one of those nice neighborhoods or nice buildings where kids come waltzing up to your door in search of goodies, and it also happens to be a neighborhood in which parents will let their kids eat a homemade treat that you’ve dropped into their bag (wait, where are you living? The 1950s?) then I suggest wrapping up some cake slices for those little masked beggars.
Or do what I do and eat three slices while watching hours upon hours of college football.
