I need more chocolate

The girls were happy only going to a few houses to trick-or-treat this year. I thought that was great on Halloween night. It was a school night, I had a headache and really wasn't in the mood to be knocking on doors for any longer than we had to. Well, now I want to go trick-or-treating again. When the kids aren't looking and you raid their little pumpkins, you can find some really good chocolate that you never think to buy! You can get stuck in a chocolate rut and buy the same thing over and over and over for yourself. I remember last year rediscovering Sugar Babies. This year, I think all of our neighbors bought their candy the same place I did, and I want something new and good! To make matters worse, Shanna forbade me from touching her candy, so I only have one pumpkin to work with!)

Here's another observation while I am talking about sweets. The last time we roasted marshmallows, Shanna really wanted to roast the little ones because she thinks they taste better. I thought that was the silliest thing ever and told her there was no way I was going to sit there and poke mini-marshmallows on her stick. But last night, I was making sweet potatoes, and sprinkled some of the mini ones on top. I had to have a few, and you know what? She's right! Mini-marshmallows DO taste better than big ones! Why is that? Maybe, just maybe if I am really feeling patient, the next time we roast marshmallows, I will sit there and poke the little ones on the stick...for both of us.
