What's the best thing you've ever received trick-or-treating?

Hotdogs - at the local funeral home. We had to walk up the dimly lit driveway, past the funeral home, and into the backyard. They gave out the hotdogs from the garage, where the hearses were kept. This was really scary when we were little, and there was lots of discussion about what the hotdogs were made from. But the warm treat on a chilly night was worth it.

the lowly meatloaf sandwich

We had a meatloaf sandwich at the Culinary Institute of America last year that was anything but "lowly! The meatloaf was at least 1-inch thick, on their fabulous thickly sliced grilled bread, served with lettuce, tomatoes, a magical sauce and homemade "ketchup". Then their thick-cut fries. It was all to die for! It proves that even the simplest of foods can be delicious when well prepared!
