Peep Dangers Thursday

Yellow Marshmallow Chicks in Rows

There’s great news for vegans and vegetarians who hate Peeps: You probably shouldn’t be eating them anyway.

Peeps are marshmallows, which ― aside from a few vegan-friendly exceptions ― are made primarily of sugar and gelatin. For vegans and vegetarians, the word “gelatin” should be setting off an alarm in your head.

Original Marshmallow Peeps ingredients:
Sugar, corn syrup, gelatin, contains less than 0.5% of the following ingredients: Yellow #5 (tartrazine), potassium sorbate (a preservative), natural flavors, carnauba wax.

Gelatin is made by boiling water with the skin, tendons, ligaments and bones of animals. It’s obviously not vegan, but it’s also not vegetarian: The definition of vegetarianism isn’t always clearly defined, but most vegetarians don’t eat anything that requires an animal to die, and an animal has to be dead in order to use those body parts.

    I packed the kid’s Easter baskets with sugar. Bad mama. Yes, Pete and Jill still get an Easter basket. I also make one up for Nicholas, which is stupid since he gets one at home. Oh, well.

    At least my Easter baskets have good candy in it. And no Peeps.

    The pain just below my waist on the right side IS STILL THERE bringing tears to my eyes off and on during the day.

    I pushed on, cleaned the bathroom, hutch in the kitchen, did dishes, putzed around with other things that needed doing. Dyed my hair, too.

    Will have to drag out the damn leaf to the table before Sunday, and sweep the kitchen floor and dust the LR. Have to change the bed Saturday. Then there is all the cooking on Sunday. Being on my feet, my legs don’t hurt, can’t say the same for my back.

    I would have done the table and swept the floor but it was raining today. If I went out to shake the kitchen rugs, my feet would have been wet and there would be nowhere to wipe my feet with the rug that’s used for would be in my hands, lol. So, tomorrow for that.

      Up to Kimbrough for the percussion concert and then home makes 83 minutes. The final work was by the ever versatile Frank Zappa. But all were good, exciting.

      Day 5: 301+83=384 minutes.
