A to Z Challenge – Day 6 – F



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!
