Pumpkin Halloween Munch #SundaySupper

Are you ready? It's almost here... like only a few days away.... spooky...creepy....HALLOWEEN!
Why am I so excited about that? Only one of the best holidays ever. Well... to me anyways. When I was growing up I had maybe 4 different Halloween costumes. 1 year I was a hobo, 1 year I was a butterfly, every other year I was a witch. Once I reached high school, the costume switched from witch to vampire. Let's say that I like to use Halloween to let my inner dark side out. Oh... and one year I was a sailor girl.... and felt total out of place. haha

Speaking of Halloween... what's Halloween without some treats!?! I know that Halloween is technically about Tricks and Treats, but I'm not that into the "trick" part. I really hate haunted houses and spooky trails and evil clowns.... I hate evil clowns.

#SundaySupper is all about Trick or Treating (Halloween Party) this week. I don't know if you've noticed  or if you read this blog a lot, you might already know, but I gather together with some other bloggers every Sunday to bring you some great recipes! There are about 50 or so of use that participate every week (all of the links are at the bottom of this post). Leslie from La Cocina de Leslie is hosting this week's party! :) I love the theme :)



Trail mix is one of my favorite snacks. Mainly because you take a bunch of good stuff, throw it into a bowl, mix it up and create some really great stuff.
