Everything You Wanted To Know About Peeps, But were Afraid To Ask.

I am personally not a a huge Peeps fan….I would rather bite into a yummy chocolate bunny, bottom paws first, any day of the year. Still, I love seeing these marshmallow harbinger’s of commercial Easter stacked up in the stores next to fluorescent green bags of grass, the bountiful bunny brigade and pretty pastel jellybeans.  As both “Nana” and “Grandma” are loyal followers of Peeps I am sure C won’t be denied if even the Easter Bunny somehow omits them from our home delivery.

There will not be a Weekender edition issued this weekend as I will be celebrating the Easter Holiday with my family.  I am really looking forward to making a fun basket for C.  Two years ago on Easter morning a pregnancy test confirmed that I was expecting.  A message inside a colored egg, nestled in a basket amongst sugary treats, gleefully announced to DH that a baby was on the way….finally. The symbolism (renewal, eggs, rabbits..) was magical. It was the most amazing early spring day and the world seemed to stand still for us as we took in the awesome news gifted to us from above.

Wishing a wonderful Pesach and beautiful Easter to All. Enjoy this special time with your loved ones.
