Going with the flow a/k/a learning something new

I was reading an article in Better Homes and Gardens about 7 Healthy Fall Foods and I realized that I have never had Roasted Chestnuts.  Yes they are Christmasy but being a native Texan, they've never been a staple of my fall or Christmas holidays.

Since my retirement I've decided that I must learn to go with the flow and quit fighting change.  Thats food for another post, but small steps .... and I must try something new.

So my fall challenge to try something new will include Chestnuts.  Not a big step but something I know absolutely nothing about.

So look forward to hearing about how, when and where I learn about Chestnuts.  Suggestions appreciated.  In the mean time, here is what BH&G has to say about ....


These nuts are a snack you can feel good about thanks to their half-day supply of vitamin B6, which plays a role in boosting the immune system, keeping skin youthful, and possibly even fighting lung cancer. Chestnuts are also high in fiber, which helps fill you up so you eat less.
