Yeah, I know, it doesn't quite have the same ring to it. We didn't have much choice though. I wanted to try roasted chestnuts and we couldn't have an open fire in the back yard, so it was the oven or nothing.
Next time I'm going for the "nothing" option.
Yep, you got it, I didn't really like them. My Mam did though. She sat and quite happily munched away at them until she was full (by which time they were pretty much gone anyway).
Kelly says they're a lot nicer cooked on an open fire... Maybe one day I'll have the oppertunity to see if that's true? In the meantime, my Mam can keep the chestnuts... I think I'll stick to mince pies!
Today (December 4th) is my Grandad's birthday. So... "Happy birthday, Grandad!" :)
