Halloween Snackies

24 of these? Sure thing!

While I was in line to pick up at the Submarine Preschool, I overheard the extremely young perky room mom fretting about how the year’s party parent sign up slots were not all filled up.  Figuring that I really don’t need all of those 8 hours a week to get the shopping, managing, organizing, calling, cooking, cleaning and atom splitting done, I immediately had a psychotic break offered some help.

This is not the healthy snack Pumpkin Pie had in mind...

Me: (innocently) Oh!  Put me down for whatever.

Perky Room Mom:  Great!  You can bring the snack for the Halloween Party.

Me:  Uh.  Ok.  What do I bring?

PRM:  Whatever you want.  You don’t even have to bring drinks or paper products. Just snack.

Me:  Umm…  Cupcakes?

PRM:  There is supposed to be something healthy and then something non-healthy.

Me:  Non-healthy?  Like… paint thinner? (Luckily I didn’t say the paint thinner part out loud.  I know, I was really surprised, too!)  So I am bringing two snacks? (False advertising, much?)

PRM:  Yup.  But no drinks.  They will only serve water.  No juice.

At this point I start a rant about how preschool without juice is like tequila without lime, coffee without Bailey’s or- why are all my go-togethers alcoholic?   My rant was tolerated by those in line, but clearly not enjoyed by anyone but me.  Luckily, I enjoyed it enough for everyone.  On the way out the door, PRM asked whose mom I was.  “Pumpkin Pie’s”, I said.  There are THREE Pumpkin Pies in his class, let her figure it out.

Not this, either...

Pumpkin Pie and I made it home and I told about the Halloween party snacks.  I am not sure why I told him, did I think he would offer to handle it himself?

Me:  (Faking excitement) Pumpkin Pie, we get to bring the snack to your Halloween Party at school!!

Pumpkin Pie:  CUPCAKES!!! (That’s my boy!)

Me:  That’s what I said!  BUT, we have to bring something healthy, too.

Pumpkin Pie:  GREEN BEANS!

Me:  Oh.  Uh, How about fruit?  Fruit is a healthy snack.

Pumpkin Pie:  LIMES!  I love limes because they are tart and Pickles and I LOVE tart stuff!

Me:  Oh.  Uh…  Ok.

I guess the Submarine Preschool is having cupcakes and Green Bean Lime Casserole for Halloween snack.  I better go get my cook book.

Gather round kids, it's time for Lime Green Bean casserole. It's a healthy snack.

    How about lime-a beans?
    If you did carrot cake cupcakes would that count as both items?
