Literally! I confess – I succumbed to an impulse purchase at the grocery store. PLUSH PEEPS! They are adorable. I might have go back and get the bunnies. I took these out of the box, cut off the ugly yellow label and just posted them randomly on my mantle in the family room. They look like the real thing. They also stare out into the room as if to say, “Hmm, I wonder how we ended up here?”
PS – Am I the only aficionado of stale peeps? Take them out of the package, break them up & let them sit in a bowl for a couple of days. They get a nice crispy crunch when you bite in to them. MMmmmmm.
Continuing my love affair with all things Japanese is……. (drumroll:) SUSHI.
Love it. Love sushi, love sashimi, el-oh-vee-eee LOVE IT. I also love PEEPS, those cute little marshmallow chicks that get better with age (and dryness) YUM. I even have a technique for eating Peeps “properly” which I will share with anyone who wishes to be enlightened. (Warning – the first bite is not for the faint of heart.)
It was with shock, delight, surprise and laughter that I found the website Serious Eats offered up the funniest, most creative (and frankly, delicious) PEEPS SUSHI that I have ever seen, heard of, or dreamed up. This is for real, and it is so colorful & creative – it made me laugh out loud. Enjoy – I think I’ll do a little series on the art of PEEPS!
