When Frankie turned 1 year old, Julian's Mom came over to sadly tell us he was sick and couldn't come to her cupcake party. She did not come empty handed. She brought us a lovely card and Peeps. Many of them. Trish and I vary in opinion on many things. But we both know the proper way to eat Peeps is stale. The cellophane wrapper was carefully sliced and now, almost two weeks later, they are waiting to be harvested. But no rush, they have an 18 month shelf life.

NPR has the best coverage of Peeps I've seen. A video clip of them being manufactured, links, etc. I'm even going to try their recommendation of warming one up in the microwave. Did you know the eyes are made of wax and applied with a pneumatic device?

Thanks Elizabeth!
