Chestnuts Roasting

With 66 days until Christmas day and as I cheerfully listened to Christmas music as I drove my car I felt rather festive.   What made this festive warm feeling even greater was when my husband presented me with a bag of chestnuts! 


My husband was shocked that I had never before roasted chestnuts especially with my fondness for Christmas. 

I made a small cross cut on each chestnut as instructed on the packet and roasted for 20 minutes.


The chestnuts had a rather strange taste but lovely with honey. 


After a fun time of roasting the chestnuts and singing the first line of chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack frost nipping your nose but I often sing toes numerous times I set to work on the costume I’m making for my friends daughter for her dance competition. 


The picture actually makes the leotard look dark blue when in actual fact its purple.  I still need to sew on Swarovski’s onto the costume and make a head dress. 

Happy Monday Friends!
