Peach Crisp

The recipe calls for two pounds of fruit. While I was in Whole Foods picking up some ingredients, I thought I remembered it calling for three pounds of fruit. Then I figured I could tell by feel what three pounds felt like, so I loaded in about 20 small peaches into my basket. Did you know that I actually bought six pounds of peaches?! I knew they wouldn’t go to waste, even if they all didn’t fit in this crisp, but still, six pounds y’all.

By the end of the day, I used about four pounds of peaces in my crisp and boy was it good!

Lesson learned: use the scales in the produce section, that’s what they’re there for.
