Recipe - One of these Chocolate Chip Cookies is tasty and satisfying (Protein and Carbohydrate Watching)
Folks grow almonds and walnuts just north of where I live.
Nothing beats a California almond - unless it's a cookie made with CA almond meal
Protein and Carb Watching?
Make 18 of these
One Cookie is Sastisfying
Make cookie dough the regular way - Cream the butter and sugar, add the salt and baking soda and eggs then mix in the dry stuff.
§ 2½ cups almond flour
§ 1/2 cup rolled oats (not instant kind)
§ ¼ cup walnuts, shelled and chopped
§ 1/2 cup unsalted butter
§ 2 large eggs
§ ½ cup sugar
§ ½ cup Guitard milk chocolate chips (OK you can use your own favorite - These are my favorite!)
§ ½ teaspoon salt
§ ½ teaspoon baking soda
§ 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Put on some good walking shoes.
Head to the Palo Alto Baylands.
Click on that Pirates of Penzance recording and sing along....
Foeniculi - Foenicula - Foenicula ha ha ha ha!
It's just Fennel
No, I don't know if it's safe to eat. I wouldn't take a chance - especially as some of the nearby flowers are from the carrot family and look suspiciously like poison hemlock. Yah, that's the stuff Socrates drank and three hours later - no Socrates.
So just sing along.

A fan of Gilbert and Sullivan Pirates of Penzance - I thought the song was called 'Tarantula' now am wondering..... Is it called 'When the foreman bears his steel'?
When the foreman bears his steel - Tarantula!
