Me and My Peeps

Twin Peeps


Peeps Intimidated!

CRAZIER than flashlight knitting is this new, ground-breaking diet! Yes! It is Slim-Fast with Marshmallow Peeps!

DISCLAIMER: Either you can drink Slim-Fast or you can’t. You either love Peeps or you hate ’em. I know, so save your grunts for after you read this Peep story. It has a pretty sad ending.

Disclaimer #2: This really has nothing to do with a diet. It’s all about the Peeps.

Here’s how it came to be: I had a Slim-Fast for breakfast and was still wanting just a “little something”… well in the “little something” category, Peeps are high on the list! They are tons of sugar held up with marshmallow goo. Put on your HazMat gear (if it still fits) and dive in. Five of these guys are 140 calories… but what about two? I’m no mathematician but by my calculations, that’s just 56 calories. Of pure sugar. I know.

There are Peeps rules.. in case you didn’t know.

One should never, ever actually purchase these on their own. They are far too volatile on the hips and under the chins… BUT if they are a gift, all bets are off. Yep, you can eat ’em, or in the case of LAST Easter, we actually roasted them over an open fire.
Several of our neighbors gathered to roast Bunny Peeps at our house. I cannot say whose idea it was, but I’ll bet you can guess… Anyway, our favorite Son-in-Law joined in on the festivities. I think he named his victim “Nuclear Peep.”

By the way, those things flare up like hairspray on an 1980’s Farrah Fawcett hairdo! The ears shot flames so high we could have carried them like torches on a posse, but no one was organizing a posse so we ate them instead.

Ian, (the favorite Son-in-Law) ate one first. He didn’t look to excited, but you should have seen him afterward! A St. Patrick’s Day green Peep would have been envious over the hue of his face!

You must be wondering am I actually in the stores looking for Peeps? Well, since they are not “really” on my diet, I have not purchased the first Peep this season… it is true!

BUT! A friend gave them to me, which means I can eat ’em or roast ’em, whatever I want. They’re all mine.

Oh Yeah.

She knows I love Peeps and I have a few Peeps stories I’ve entertained and amazed people with. So when she saw these little guys, she, knowing I also love PINK, swooped them up and flew them right to me! How SUH-WEET! My Peeps, at only 56 calories, chased down with a slosh of Slim-Fast may not make culinary headlines, in fact, it might make a few culinary experts nausious, but I’ve never been known for having notable culinary skills (or tastes, as today’s entry reveals!)

So I was photographing my Peeps when I saw them shivering… or maybe I THOUGHT I saw them shiver… sugar does strange things you know….

And I saw there are some NEW PEEPS IN TOWN…

Gangsta Peeps on steroids.

What happened next is tragic and I can’t talk about it.What I can say is that this Peep is out of his misery now.
