This is my favorite post so far. Emily worked really hard on this one.
This is a story she doesn’t tire to tell. My dad did something so funny. On December 24 (4 years ago). I was in my room and heard something. It was chestnuts exploding in the oven. Do not put chestnuts in the oven without drilling a hole in them.
This is really sound advice.
We did learn something really valuable that day.
You know that song…. “chestnuts roasting on an open fire” They don’t tell you to put a hole in the chestnut before you roast them.
The chestnuts exploded in the oven and once we got the pan out of the oven, one chestnuts exploded in the kitchen and the others exploded as soon as they hit the snow on the back deck!

Just getting around to reading the A to Z Challenge posts now and I have to say I’m glad I waited – it’s such fun to read them all one after the other and see the alphabet unfold through your writing. This post was my absolute favourite (so far!). It made me laugh out loud, and then I shared it with my hubby and he got a chuckle too. Educational and entertaining, what more could one ask?
Emily, you are a gifted writer! I like how you paint a picture with your words. I felt like I was right there with you when you were describing the adventure. Thank you for sharing your funny family story. And teaching us something too!
Thank you Pat for reading and commenting. This is one of Emily’s favorite story! Jon will never live it down!
Drill a hole. Check. I’ll have to remember that if I’m ever roasting chestnuts. Great lesson!
Our oven never cooked evenly after that so its a great lesson. 😊
Great post and it is pretty funny!
I’ve always wanted to roast chestnuts but I’ve never gotten around to it, at least I know to drill holes in them beforehand now!

We had no idea either! Thank you for stopping by.
That IS funny. I never knew that about roasting chestnuts.
We didn’t either… Lol
That conjures up such a funny picture in my head!!
It was hilarious. chestnuts explode into white powder. It was all over the oven and the kitchen.
