Pink & Yellow PEEPS of the Sky

This morning, I drove east into marshmallowy pink clouds, and, after a turn north, I turned east again into marshmallowy yellow clouds, the whole sky like an eruption of PEEPS in a microwave.  (See South Park Fantastic Easter Special.  If you dare.)

OR see PEEPS! Products, recipes!

Here, for instance, is the recipe for Chic Lemon Meringue Nests, and I'm sure these Orange Chantilly Cream-Filled Oranges are equally healthy and have more vitamin C.

Anyway, I am trying to show you the colors of the sky this morning. The pinky clouds had orange in them.

I am not trying to drive you crazy, though, so I will give you a tip: Click the button at the top/center of the PEEPS page, the one that says, "Stop Music."

Here's a yellow & chocolate-edged PEEPS topped cake that I like to call PEEPSamisu in my mind. Where is the recipe for that? And see how you can submit your own PEEPS recipes?!  Maybe I will make up something called Pink & Yellow PEEPS of the Sky that explodes in your microwave.

And here is something I actually want to make, see up close, and eat: the PEEPS Sunflower Cake.

Speaking of PEEPS, Denise Duhamel was delightful last night, reading her poetry. She has bright blonde hair.

Afterwards, I walked over to the Ames Library to hear part of the Homerathon, sections read aloud in German, French, and English.  When I went back at 3:30 a.m. to do my stint in the wee hours, the library was locked, and a sign said they had already finished their marathon reading of The Odyssey. So, though I had my Fagels translation in hand, no one heard a peep of Homer out of me!

This morning my white bleeding hearts bloomed exactly like yesterday's image! The Easter bunny did not eat them.

Those peeps are really cute. I must admit that I never liked eating them, though. Are they even meant to be edible, I wonder? I might like exploding them, as long as I don't have to clean the microwave.

I recently learned that real marshmallow (edible sweet) comes from the real marsh mallow...a plant. No marshmallows are made from it anymore.

I can see the Peep sky. Pretty as an ice cream sky of a sort:

I'm sad you missed out on the Homerathon. Rather, that they missed out on you!

Jelly beans are my spring candy of choice :).

Oh, yes! Jelly beans!

And Collagemama, I enjoyed the dawn on your fridge!!
