I did so-so this time. I got #s 2, 3, 4, 5, and 8. I got the T or C wrong, so I looked it up. They are in the sunflower family but are small and remind me more of daisies. Interesting.

Hummmm, I wonder if French frog tastes different from
American frog, if cooked the same?
They can have my share, 'cause I don't plan on finding out.

Frog legs are one of my favorite meals.

I never thought about it before, but are there dishes that involve cooking the entire frog?
