Well, I'm really talking about two different things, not all food! One of the things I love about Carol's blog, Duxbury Ramblers, is to compare the plants they have in England with the ones we have here in Michigan. The one above, commonly called Butter and Eggs here, is a toadflax, Linaria vulgaris. It's alien, but has been around for centuries. It's so pretty I can't be too sad, and it doesn't seem to be invasive.
Now, for the cookies I promised you. The dark ones are Mocha Walnut (with chocolate chips), and the others are Oatmeal Raisin. Now for a tall glass of iced coffee! It's too hot here to think. I don't know how some of you who are farther south can handle this!
