The Easter Bunny     A Bunny's Tale...

From time to time, unimaginative people have questioned the ability of the busy Easter Bunny to produce all those Easter eggs. Anyone who ponders deeply on this question will figure out the answer ? the bunny has a special arrangement with the chickens.

That's right, the chickens are in on it. Long disturbed by the rather routine look of their eggs ? white and brown, white and brown ? the chickens were delighted when the bunny offered to decorate their eggs with a rainbow of colors.

Colored eggs unruffled the feathers and raised the self-esteem of the chickens. They doubled their egg production during the crucial pre-spring period so they could supply the bunny with all the eggs he needed. Free of charge!

On the night before Easter, the head bunny (aka "THE Easter Bunny) and all of his helpers (you didn't think he did this all by himself, did you?) gather with great excitement in the Great Hall of the Rabbits. Moving at an incredible speed and working themselves into a veritable Saturday night fever, the bunnies work together to dye all the eggs, weave a variety of Easter baskets and create the strangely colored Easter grass!

                    Happy Easter!
                        Lora and Neil

                                                      Heinz One Carb Ketchup
Heinz One Carb Ketchup
Ketchup on burgers; ketchup on hot dogs; ketchup on meatloaf. We're a ketchup obsessed society, so many of us tend to feel a little deprived when we have to say "no thanks" to adding it to our usual fare. But the newest entry from
Heinz means you can pour it on and love every bite. Their new One Carb Ketchup tastes like... well... ketchup.

It's sweetened with Splenda and offers up just the right mix of spices to make it taste like what you're used to. A one-tablespoon serving offers up only 1 carb. So yeah, if you're like most of us and one tablespoon isn't going to be enough for you, you don't have to feel guilty about having two... or even three.

Regular ketchup contains 4 to 6 carbs per tablespoon (and contains more sugar than some candies), so if you're a more-than-one-tbsp kinda person, this will really save you some carbs! (And regular ketchup is sweetened with high fructose corn syrup... a definite no-no.)

If you're wondering about the other ingredients, rest assured, there's nothing unhealthy in here... just tomato, vinegar, salt, onion powder, spices, and sucralose (Splenda.) So go ahead... cover that burger!

It's available nationwide in most groceries. Some stores stock it with other ketchups; some with specialty low carb or diet foods. Enjoy!
