Every holiday has a "food association", mine is Easter ham and deviled eggs. Also, there are scads of people who head straight from Easter services to a brunch buffet. Houston's own 29-95 has compiled a nice list of brunches and special three-course meals. Here's the complete list for your perusal. If you prefer to cook your own Easter Feaster, and you're rather tired of ham...there's always a lovely braised rabbit, courtesy of Eating Our Words. Go gently into the rabbit area, as evidenced by the comments some meat is more murderous than others. "Me-OW". I happen to like rabbit, it's yet another "white meat".
Peeps, everyone is weighing in on the candy front, and who am I not to follow them, hopping down the bunny trail, in search of the best basket stuffing sweetness? I love black licorice jelly beans and malted milk "eggs". The Reese's peanut butter eggs are far superior to the normal cups you can purchase year round. Cadbury creme eggs....if I do a cartwheel without experiencing an isolated gravity storm, will you gimme one? Sugar coated marshmallow peeps....nastified. I bet Peep-based s'mores suck too. I don't like them, never have. Now, it's not a real dislike, on account of I have not wrapped my soup coolers around of of those suckers in about....25 years. Nope, not since I was four years old.....oh, yeah, my pants are on fire, one moment, please. I don't like peeps, unless they are "art"....like the pole dancing ones I've seen on the interwebs....or these.
