It's That Time of Year Again!!!
I love peeps. I LOVE peeps. I get so excited when I see them stock that ridiculous, disgusting, pastel-colored isle at the grocery store because I know that somewhere amid the rows and rows of high-fructose corn syrup and partially hydrogenated goo, some little yellow bunnies and chicks sit and wait to be eaten by me.
"Just one box this year," I say (every year) at the beginning of peeps season. So I buy one. But then my hubby sees them, thinks of me, and buys two. Then a friend brings me some...and on and on it goes until the last box is sold off the shelf - to me, of course.
I had a little fun with these in the microwave. Try it! I bet you can't watch these little guys swell up in there without smiling at least a little. You may even chuckle.
Here's me last year, using pregnancy cravings as an excuse for more peeps. (sorry for the wash-out...blasted disposable cameras!)
One can even go to the peeps website for recipes, crafts, fun facts and a factory tour. You can even join their fan club!
P.S. Should you choose to buy me some peeps, yellow is the best.
