"Big" mistake

  • I bought a bag of pears at Costco today.  Looked through the writing on the bag to see that they seemed to all be in great shape.  Got them home and I'm loading them into my fruit bowl on the counter to find that thety are the Mother of all Pears!   :o  These babies are gonna be in the neighborhood of 50-60 carbs!  Some are as big as softballs!  :o :o :o

  • Sounds like the pears were on steroids!  Just had to look up how "big" these bad boys had to be to be that many carbs  :o

  • Oh, that does sound good.  But I'm afraid I'm not much into baking.  May have to consider it though....
