Happy Easter!

(Do not try this at home!)

Recently, while standing in line at the store, a woman in front of me
was buying a box of "Peeps".
A woman behind me said to her,
"Did you ever explode them in the microwave?".
(Say WHAAAT?!)
The woman in front, looking puzzled said, "Uh... no.".
The woman behind me said,
"They don't really explode, they just melt into puddles.".
Woman in front, "Doesn't it make a mess?".
Woman behind me,
"No, I put them in plastic baggies first. That's the only reason I buy them, to blow them up.".

How disturbing.
How could anyone do that to a sweet, defenseless Peep?!
Just look at that little face!

Oh... wait a minute... they're marshmallow and people eat them.

Alrighty then.

As some of you may know, I love, love, LOVE chocolate!!
So, I have to admit, that when I look at these foil-covered rabbit decorations,
they look SO much like the real-deal, that it drives me nuts!
(Even though I KNOW they're not!)

Imagination - it's a powerful thing.
(I'm imagining myself biting those ears off, right now!! Gimme those eeears!!)

After writing this post, I was so hungry for chocolate, that I made myself
a raw-food Chocolate Mousse! Ohhhh yeaaahhh!
(No picture available. Gone too fast.)

Have a wonderful Easter! (Don't nuke the Peeps.)

Signing off for now,


  1. ha! you "quack" me up! oh wait, peeps are chicks, and chicks say peep, hence the name. d'ah well.=)

  4. What lovely pictures!!!! Have a Happy Easter!!!

  5. Love the foil bunnies. Too beautiful to eat. That lady isn't a nice person if she nukes those peeps.

    Happy Easter.

  6. OH my .. I just lost it on this one, lol! I am a PEEP FANATIC and i just love this! You rock, girl!! oxxo luny

  7. I've never seen a real peep, only pictures on the internet, but they do have a certain charm; blowing them up seems a bit over the top.

    Those foil bunnies look like they were made in the 1800s---do check them before biting.

  8. HAPPY EASTER. Love the story of the peeps. I agree, they are too cute to nuke. The foiled bunnies are so old fashioned looking.
