It’s Halloween week and that means costumes, candy and throwing those house rules for health out the window as we slip into some synthetic costumes and collect high fructose corn syrup made into all different crazy kinds of things. Right?!
I don’t have kids, but my current plan when I do is to find somewhere to be on Halloween where Halloween doesn’t exist. Sure, my future kiddos might hate me, but hopefully I can get away with it for a few years at least. And of course costumes will be part of everyday life, so that won’t be a thing anyway.
I have heard of all kinds of alternative Halloween options, whether it’s reverse trick-or-treating, allowing your kids to binge their sweet little faces off on you-approved treats, or just letting them go door-to-door and collect candy, inviting them keep a few things and then donating the rest.
What I want to share with you today is not really any of those things, but how to send your kidlets (and yourselves) out into the night with some hearty fuel in the belly so that maybe everyone will be too full to fill their faces with candy.
I remember the pre-Halloween meals my mom would craft up. Sometimes they were big mighty lasagnas, and then we moved into the homemade submarine sandwich. It was the kind of food you could eat with minimal supervision and kind of just kept everyone happy.
And so today, I am sharing a seriously warm, hearty, and super simple veg-infused mac and cheese that I know you are going to LOVE (and the kiddies will to). Make this and then tell me all about it!
