This is probably the last post my teeth want me to write, what with our two unplanned trips to the dentist last week… but um… YOLO. And PEEPO (that doesn’t mean anything… or at least I don’t think it does).
Easter is just a few days away, which means a lot of things. In the interest of being inclusive, I’d like to focus on one (very unimportant, not at all holy) aspect of the week. Easter time is high season for Peeps. I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but I do love a (pure sugar) bunny or chick this time of year.
If you’re wondering what to do with the Peeps in your basket (besides get a cavity), I’ve got a few ideas.
Ideas for my Peeps (and your Peeps, too):
- Float one in your coffee or (even better) hot chocolate
- Make Peeps s’mores (my recipe includes gluten free graham crackers)
- Peep your neighbor’s lawn (my super fun parents have done this in the past by covering a friends’ lawn with Peeps atop grilling skewers)
- Pick up some hand-piped Peeps from Sweet Lydia’s at the Boston Public Market
- Make this Peeps Skillet Deep from Brit + Co (and probably make, like, 50 new best friends by sharing)
- Learn things such as “It used to take 27 hours to make a Peep” from Mental Floss
- Turn your Peeps into edible play dough with this recipe from the SITS Girls
- Make a Peeps diorama and enter the Post’s contest next year
P.S. This post is not sponsored. Nor is it particularly healthy or inspiring. But, um… whatever.
Also On Tap for Today:
- Push-up playdate!
- Beautiful egg decorating ideas from Alisa Burke
- Playing “pretend egg hunt” in our 1200 square foot condo… needless to say, many, many eggs have ended up in Clark’s food bowl
Salty or sweet? (Both is a totally acceptable answer.)
