Easter Bleats on the Bunny Trail Beat

Forget the Peeps, the Cadbury Creme Eggs, the foil covered chocolate eggs, the jelly beans, the chocolate bunnies. This is what's blissing out my sweet tooth today:

The cranberries and strawberries are sweet and chewy and delectable. The cherries provide a punch of tangy tartness that wake your tastebuds right up. But the blueberries? Tiny bites of sweetly earthy heaven (and I'm usually kind of "meh" when it comes to blueberries)! These are going on my next order from Mariani:

I'm hooked, I tell you. (And no, they're not paying me for these rave reviews. I'm paying them for the pleasure of purchasing their wonderful products.)

Quote of the Day:

Easter Exchange Rates:
According to current exchange rates, one Creme Egg = one small hollow chocolate bunny, three medium-sized solid chocolate eggs = two Creme Eggs, one handful of pink and yellow jellybeans = three chocolate-marshmallow eggs. One brightly colored hard-boiled egg has no value. Don’t even try to use it on the open market.

In case you're not up for the usual Easter ham (or lamb), here's a little cholesterol bomb that just might appeal.

(I dunno about you, but my arteries just whimpered.)

Three love stories for you:

Now the green blade riseth from the buried grain,
Wheat that in dark earth many days has lain;
Love lives again, that with the dead has been:
Love is come again, like wheat that springeth green.

In the grave they laid him, love whom men had slain,
Thinking that never he would wake again.
Laid in the earth like grain that sleeps unseen:
Love is come again, like wheat that springeth green,

Forth he came at Easter, like the risen grain,
He that for three days in the grave had lain.
Quick from the dead my risen Lord is seen:
Love is come again, like wheat that springeth green.

When our hearts are wintry, grieving, or in pain,
Thy touch can call us back to life again;
Fields of our hearts that dead and bare have been:
Love is come again, like wheat that springeth green.
