Whoa... look at the size of that thing!

O.k.

I must share my uncle's great find. You're thinking some really great cupboard buried in the back of an old shed, or maybe a piece of sparkly bling in the dirt, or maybe a pair of old wheels off a wagon from years ago.

Yeah, I wish.


HOWEVER... this thing is almost as good. Well, at least it tastes much better than the treasures described above....

On a trip back to Iowa he discovered this...




yeah... look at the size of that thing! My aunt is holding up a 2-liter pop bottle for comparison.

You'd need a whole sack of flour and a full pound of butter for that morel!!!

YUMMY! Wish I was back in Colorado with him to share it... cause you know he can't, or at least shouldn't eat that all himself!

OH MY GOODNESS THAT IS WHAT YOU CALL A WOPPER!!!! At our cabin in CO we used to go mushroom hunting and found the kinds native to CO..but, nothing beats a morel!

okay... I'm so glad that Kimmy said it's a mushroom... I was thinking it was some octopus and was fixing to bust out a google search on "morel"...

and no, I have not been shroomin'...

but I will leave the eating of that thing to YOU and I'll take the bottle of pop!!! How's that? And, did I just say, "pop"? Good grief... what are you doing to me? LOLOL

I'll go to CO with you though! Just think of all the junk on the way....

:-D robelyn
