Coke Memories!

In the Southern United States there are two kinds of people; people that like coke and people that like Pepsi, we were always the Coke drinkers, and rightfully so! It just tastes better! Thinking about my days as a child and growing up it is pretty hard to separate the memory of my dad and his coke. Coke was always his favorite beverage and he always had one handy. If he asked us to run to a vending machine for him it would always be for a Coke, and nothing else. As time went by and he got a little older he switched to Coke Zero, but it is still a Coke none-the-less! Now that I'm grown I also love my Coke as well! There's nothing like having a coke when the baby goes down for a nap so I can get past my own urge to take a nap!!! I get a little

Now with my own family one of our favorite things to do is to make a delicious, fizzy, coke float! They are the perfect partner to a big bowl of pop corn and a family movie night! We have three children that are fairly close in age and we always let the kids choose the movie and they usually choose something very kid friendly, and silly, but that's what makes child hood fun and special! I hope that someday they look back on these nights and it brings a smile to their faces.

Here's what we do: To make for a special night in, we don't normally allow food in our TV room, but for a movie night we roll out a huge blanket to catch any crumbs and spills, and let the kids sit there. We let loose and enjoy ourselves! Here's how you can make your own coke float for a night of enjoyment!

1 2 liter bottle Coke
1 half gallon vanilla ice cream
Ice cream scoop
straws and spoons for each family member
Number of glasses you need for the members of your family

Put two scoops ice cream in each glass then fill with coke, stick in a spoon and a straw! Keep the extra Coke on hand for refills! This is so simple and SOOOO delicious and these family movie nights will be nights that your children will remember because it's spending time together doing something fun! I hope you will give this a try because we enjoy these nights so much! Enjoy!

Me and my Peeps!

Do you want to know a secret? Behind this giveaway-lovin; gal is a peeps-obsessed fanatic! I have eaten peeps every Easter season since I can remember. I can still recall when Peeps began making their sweet little sugar-covered confections for Haloween, Christmas, and Valentines day, I was so excited to have my delicious Peeps available nearly year-round! Now they just need to make them for the fourth of July and we'll be set! But there really is nothing that can compare to the classic Easter bunny and chick-shaped peeps! I have already stocked up for the season and hopefully a little longer! I can never decide which is my favorite whether it be the bunnies or the chicks, or the pink or the yellow or the blue. So I just buy some of each! And I do think it's funny that after all of these years of eating peeps they are really becoming a fashion statement. My mother-in-law just told me she saw a center piece made to look like a topiary of peeps, and there are websites devoted to peeps. It's awesome that other people are finally discovering the awesomeness that is the PEEP!

Now, I don't know if you have noticed, but there are two kinds of "Peeple" the kind of people who like to leave their peeps out in the air so they become rock hard, and the kind of people who like them marshmellowy soft. I am of the latter group. I like my peeps to be as soft as possible. I store them in a air-tight container after I open them so they can stay perfectly soft. I actually grew up in the South, where it is very humid, so my peeps have always remained deliciously soft. Then I went to college out West in Idaho where it is high elevation and very dry weather, and was shocked when my peeps tasted dry (compared to what I was used to) right out of the package! This would not do. SOOOOoooooo...I had my parents buy my peeps down south and SHIP them up to me in Idaho so they would be the same deliciously soft texture I was used to!!!

So do I love my peeps, yes I do! And I have passed on this little obsession to my children who get them in their Easter baskets. But, some how, my little girl has become one of those people who loves her peeps rock-hard. Oh well, at least she still loves em'!
