i have been craving roasted chestnuts for like the past year!!!

i simply adore them mmmm.
and yesterday a good friend of mine came back from Turkey and handed me a bag full of chestnuts that are ready to be roasted yipeeeee.
when i went to turkey in 2005 the weather was still chilly so the chestnut men where everywhere, i didn't need to hunt them down, this was the first chest nut man i saw and i literally ran to him bought so much of him and then requested to take his photo, for some reason the man thought i had issues, why would he think that!!!

at the moment i am rubbing my hands in glee, gastil gastil gastil, i could sing a song about chestnuts.
you know what else is amazing for winter season, batata 7elwa (sweet potato) put it in the even, let in cook, simply gorgeous.

and then to add to that the most amazing drink sa7lab, yeh man...

I wonder where he got the idea of your craziness :P and do you mean GASDEEL ?

I think you are looking forward to the chestnuts that you have lost the sence of writing (read what you wrote again)

Fe Aman Allah

Hey WA, long time no comment :-) I just caught up with all your posts... I have never had a chestnut roast or otherwise.. I don't think... unless I did without knowing it :-)

I was expecting a romantic ending, not batata 7elwa & sa7lab

Read this blog about winter :-)

You post reminds me of films which have a twisted end :-)

When you are eating your Batata you can listen to this song which you will love.

btw, you say "batata" for potato?? it's absolutely the same way we spell it in portuguese!

Speaking as a representative of the Gastil family, I personally hope they *are* called "gastil chestnuts." We are few in number and could always use something new to hang our hat on.
