Colors of Spring

Easter is almost upon us, which means that there are ads on Craigslist for baby bunnies, chicks at the feed store that have been dyed unnatural colors, and cartons of “Peeps” have appeared at every grocery store, convenience store, gas station, and newsstand in the land.

Does anyone even eat Peeps? I mean, seriously? Are they more than just padding for the more-edible goodies in your Easter basket? In my opinion, the only thing that could make Peeps more disgusting is if they were coated in coconut… or sand.

Curious, I turned to that oracle of the human experience: Pinterest. And what to my wondering eyes should appear, but recipes and bouquets and Peeps craft idears. (Yes, I know that’s misspelled, but pretend someone from Boston is saying it and it makes it rhyme.)

tort.  peeps.


The only thing I like to do with Peeps is put them in the microwave, and only when I’m am absolutely sure that someone else is going to clean up the mess.  Then again, I understand that microwaving Peeps can garner unexpected results.  Like this guy, who is my new Easter-time hero.
