…It’s TGI Friday: Peep Jousting?

Peep Jousting

Easter comes early this year, which means just one thing: Early Peep Jousting!

To Peep Joust, simply stick two Peeps in the microwave on a plate facing each other with a toothpick “lance” stuck to the side of each one (lick it to stick it), and set the timer to around forty seconds.
