We decided to roast chestnuts in our fireplace … queue in the song Chestnuts roasting on an open fire la la laaa la la la laaaaa. (no worries, instead of my voice, I embedded Michael Buble’s beautiful voice singing the song at the bottom of this post). Our checklist for this Tasty Tuesday: Fireplace …. check! Chestnuts …. check! Grill pan …. check!
Oven mitts … check! Willing experimenter (hubby) ….. check!
Here’s how they turned out. Beautifully TOASTY aren’t they? Kinda looking like dinosaur eggs discovered by a volcano.
Easily cracks open …
and the taste was oooh sooooo gross. Seriously, we BOTH didn’t like it. Even adding honey and salt didn’t convince us to keep eating them …eeeeewwww. But no regrets bec WE HAD FUN roasting them. Will we do it again? You betcha! But, next time we will find a recipe so we can add our roasted chestnuts.
Here’s part of the lyrics to the beautiful song ….
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping on your nose,
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,
And folks dressed up like Eskimos
Laa laaa laaa … trust me you DON’T want to hear me sing haha. Live great within your home, heart, and tummy; here’s the song (enjoy!):
