While wandering through the grocery store, my daughter gasped and I spotted the object of her excitement - the large display of Peeps! We admired the pastel selection of bunnies and chicks and since we do eat healthy most of the time, we felt no guilt as we ripped that package open and bit the heads off two of those little sacks of sugar. And then, the light bulb went off and a contest was born! Easter is coming, and what is the one item that instantly pops into your head when you think "Easter basket"? No, after the chocolate bunny. Yes, Peeps! Let's have a contest where you all create a drink, meal, snack etc. and somehow, in some way, incorporate a peep. They are not an actual ingredient in the drink/dish but instead maybe they are they helping you prepare your dish? An honored guest for a dinner party? Is the peep nibbling the peas? Hiding in the photo ready to invade? To further motivate you and your creative genius, this time I am giving a prize: A copy of the book "Best of the Best: the best recipes from the 25 best cookbooks of the year". How will the winner be choosen? After I post the submissions, I will let all of you vote!
Can you believe this guy tried to invade my healthy tortellini soup?
