10 Magically Easy Halloween Dinners to Make Before Trick-or-Tricking

Halloween falls on a Wednesday this year, which is basically a crime to kids and kids-at-heart who look forward to that one night to dress up and go trick-or-treating after work school.

I’ve always made the same mistake every year—both as an adult and as a kid—of not eating anything substantial before the night of debauchery. This can catch up to you pretty quickly. So, it helps to have a reliable savory recipe or two on hand—a Tupperware of warm and cozy stew, or some crispy chicken thighs with white rice, a grilled cheesy sandwich maybe—protein and carbs, essentially, to ensure that you’re fully fueled for the night ahead.
