What a 'Treat'!

It's 10:30. The door bell has stopped ringing. Ooops! I spoke too soon. Just gave them the bad news....we're out of candy! Can you believe, since 6:30 we have given out approximately 2,000 pieces of candy? One piece at a time. Every year it amazes me how many 'trick or treators' we have here on historic Sayles Blvd. Frequently there was 20 or more people lined up down our sidewalk waiting for a sucker!
Earlier in the evening some of my friends, the coaches wives and their babies came over. After the kids got on their costumes we took off down Amarillo Street (a favorite!) About an hour later we were back at my house for stuffed baked potatoes, salad and Oreo Brownies. That's Lyssa, Parker and I started handing out the treats! We saw lot's of cute kids. There was a steady stream of spiderman's, princesses, and scarey faces. I saw only one Raggedy Ann, one Dorthy (Wizard of OZ), one Mermaid and one Cowboy....and only one E.R. Doctor with a costumed Yorkie, named Rookie! Lyssa was a real trooper and wouldn't stop until it was all gone. Even then she managed to find a few more litle candy stashes to pass out. FINALLY!!! EVERYTHING WAS GONE. The bowls were empty. When the doorbell continued to ring, Lyssa pulled a white stool up to the door, pushed the mail slot open and announced, "We're out!"
Oreo Brownies
WARNING: High in fat. High in sugar. Super simple!
1 Brownie Mix, prepared according to box, and spread into a greased 13x9 baking dish.
1 lg. pkg. of Oreo's, press a single layer of cookies into brownie batter and bake accordingly. Do not overbake.
When done, cool. Frost with a can white icing and garnish with crushed Oreo's.

note: Tonight, to make matter's worse, I used the orange Double Stuffed Oreo's. Yike's!
