Chestnuts Roasting on an Open fire . . .

. . . make the house stink of burnt stuff.
And taste kind of like half-burned, half-raw baked potatoes.
But if you're dying to wear a tank top and shorts even though it's brrrr-cold outside, this is the project for you.  Because sitting close to an open fire with red hot coals for 30-plus minutes is HOT.
How to roast chestnuts on an open fire.
Merry Christmas.

They aren't good? I didn't know that. That is funny. Have a wonderful and blessed New Year Lynn.
I hope you get lots of rain. :) We have had some and it is just wonderful. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

Farm Girl, my dismal results could be blamed on operator error, since I didn't know what I was doing. I may try them some other year in my oven. But I had always been curious about trying this, so at least now I can cross it off my bucket list :)

We got lots of rain lately, too -- 21 inches in December! It is lovely to be able to do laundry whenever we want. I'm glad to hear you got some rain. We sure appreciate it now, don't we? Merry Christmas and happy new year to you and your family.

Hi Lynn,
The email link on your profile doesn't work :) I stumbled on your blog a few weeks ago via pinterest and realized you wrote "Queen of the Castle" which I picked up years ago. It was such a source of encouragement to me when my kids were all under age 4 and I couldn't find my brain let alone think about cleaning my house. I just dusted it off my bookshelf and am enjoying it in this new year again. I relate to so much of what you write!! Blessings to you and your family...

How nice to hear from you! And I'm glad Queen of the Castle has been an encouragement to you as you've raised your precious kids. Blessings to you, as well. May 2015 be a wonderful year for you and your family :)

Hi Lynn!!!
What a bad girl I am. I didn't make it over here in time to share the warmth!

I hope you and yours had a wonderful holiday season and that you are staying warm in this new year:)

As for us, we're doing just "ducky."

When we were kids, my parents use to make those difficult slits in the chestnuts and "throw" them in the oven. I never liked them that way either, lol...

Wishing you and yours a Happy and Healthy New Year, Lynn!!! Thank you so much for your kind words. Louise
