I Got A Pressie

I was surprised when a friend of mine told me she roasted chestnuts using the microwave. I didn't know you could cook them that way. I'm really the only one on the family who likes roasted chestnuts. I told Himself about the microwave method and got all nostalgic.

My dad always had to have chestnuts at Thanksgiving and Christmas. He would buy the chestnuts and was in charge of roasting them. He made an "x" on each chestnut with a sharp knife and placed them on a baking sheet. I remember when I was little, he told me the "x" had to be made or the oven door would blow off. I was always a little disappointed that event never happened.

Himself ran to the Mahket to pick up a few items. One of the items he picked up was a snack bag of chestnuts. Yup, Himself is a keeper.
