BON CHEW & COWCOW

to FFF-FURRYDAY hosted by Aunty YAM… & Nature Furryday hosted by da LLB-Crew,

…do you know da tasty brown thingies we have in all our forests now? Da chestnuts (castanea sativa) what are super tasty when you roast them in a special pan with holes over da fire? We think they make fall to da best season ever… and even when they lead to high exhaust values, they are tasty and healthy because they have lots of vitamine c and vitamine b2. Da staff only knew them from all hallows eve , when da peeps walk to da cemeteries. There was always a chestnut guy who sold them at the entrance and the bags were like little handwarmers. Today we still go to the cemeteries , but the chestnut guys are gone… ok, it would make  not much sense to sell them here where efurrybuddy can pick them from the ground for free… but the smell of the chestnut pans and the feeling in your hands and the black fingers and your black mouth are a nice childhood memory. And even when we made our own at home, they still taste like the ones from a time what is sadly gone with da wind…

… the trees are still full with chestnuts here, it was a good summer for them…

… sadly they are also on the ground and it is no fun for dog paws, therefore the mama had to carry da Phenny someonewhowantstostayanonymousbecausehedontwantstobeawussy…

… and now da lake looks like a painting by Bob Ross…

…and the land looks empty and endless somehow…although our limit is 1 kilometer from home and one hour per day again …

… and da chestnut way looks a little like the path to a secret land…

… and we prefer to watch all that beauty from our Black Maria…

… that’s good too and it is dry and warm…

…and with a fab yellow rose for Rosy, we wish you a warm and funny furryday and a

GOOD WEEKEND

  1. Wow, your chestnuts are different that ours, though ours also have all those prickly shells,..though sadly a lot of chestnut trees are no longer due to a disease that killed most of them:(

    I hope those restrictions are lifted soon, what a pain.

  2. You all stay safe – it’s hard not to be able to go wherever you want to but we hope soon things will get better. Chestnuts – Mom and Dad had roasted chestnuts in New York at Christmas time years ago from a street vendor – they were delicious!

    Hugs, Teddy

  3. Roasted chestnuts are the best! Keep your chins up, we’ll hopefully come out of this safer…

  4. We have had our own roasted chestnuts and they are yummy but those prickly pods are just awful for pups and for the peeps too if they need to be raked and moved to a different location. What a beautiful lake shot!

  5. Sandra Hangey says:

    I have never eaten a roast at just not or even seen one And a tree or on the ground! But now I sure would like to taste one and I sure would like to wander that scary looking spooky Road. And more than anything I would like to see the mama carrying d’s phenny. And now I am sorry that I totally forgot that it was Final Friday fiction day. I enjoyed yours

  6. My GBGV Life says:

    Our mom won’t eat nuts of any kind, but she remembers being in London a few times during the holiday season where they were roasting Chestnuts on the street corners and it was a great aroma.

    My word… this was a most beautifurs offering, knocking NF and FFF out of the park!!! Yes, I remember chestnut sellers; I can almost smell them now… hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  8. Boys I have never ever had a chestnut roasted by a fire nor have I walked barefooted over them BUT it sure does sound like the burn like a fire when you do that.
    Thank goodness your mom is strong to carry someone. I just read in the news paper that France was once again on restrictions. Stay say my sweet friends and many hugs to your devoted staff
    Love the yellow rose o’Texas for Rosy
    Cecilia

  9. There was a chestnut blight, and we haven’t seen chestnuts in the stores around here for years. You will have to wear rubber boots this time of year, da Phenny. I wouldn’t want to walk barefoot over them either. da Mom

  10. edgar62 says:

    Oh chestnuts – how I miss them. I grew up n Scotland and during the winter months my dad and I would go into town to the market and there was always “Hot Chestnut Men”. At home we had coal fires and my dad used to cut the chestnuts, place lots of salt on a shovel and roast the chestnuts on the shovel with the salt over the open fire. The house had a lovely smell and the chestnuts were great. We have chestnuts here but the traditions are different and there are not the hot chestnut men anywhere. I roast chestnuts on the barbecue – it’s not the same but fairly close.

  11. Charles Huss says:

    Sadly, I never enjoyed roasted chestnuts as a child or an adult. Maybe once but I don’t remember.

  12. Brian says:

    I do think you’re suppose to roast your nuts over an open fire. Oh boys, never mind that and don’t try!

  13. Cupcake says:

    Mom loves the smell of roasting chestnuts from when she was little and her mama made them in the oven for Thanksgiving. And also from the many times she went to New York City in the winter and the pretzel guys on the corner had them roasting and toasting and filling the air with that yummy smell. We have never seen them in the wild like that though! Wow!

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake

  14. What a lovely memory of the roasted chestnuts. You found some lovely places to see the nature around you. We have our paws crossed for France and hope you can get the virus back under control.

  15. Oh yes, the smell of the roasted chestnuts in New York City at this time of year! I, personally, always preferred the pretzels from the street vendors but the smell of the chestnuts was exquisite.

    I would love to walk along that endless road with Ducky, her Daddy, and all our angels! It looks so peaceful! And it’s probably safer than any road here in the USA. Hopefully the orange idiot will lose with a large margin next week so we can start healing this country from the inside out.

  16. PS. I, too, heard with sadness that France is in a lockdown of sorts once again. It’s not ideal, but it’s certainly safer than this orange idiot running around holding his “super spreader” campaign rallies, and denying the truths.

  17. Kismet says:

    I only care about vitamin Y as in Yummy.

  18. Oh you have made Gail all nostalgic for London. She says there used to be a man roasting chestnuts and selling them in little bags just opposite Charing Cross Station near where she used to work, and how she loved the smell. We don’t have any chestnut trees (except the horse chestnut variety) this far north, but I’m sure if we did that I would not be a wuss and not need to be carried over the ones that fell on the ground.
    Toodle pip!
    Bertie.

  19. I haven’t had a chestnut in decades. They were everywhere in New York City in the winter. Vendors selling little bags. Yum!

  20. Hmm, I wonder who that was who wanted to remain anonymous because his mama had to carry him…

  21. Life is changing so much again. I hope you can still get to the woods.

    Woofs,
    Ollie

  22. We love the taste and smell of roasted nuts. We miss those bygone days too.

  23. grannyK says:

    On that last picture, if you look between the two roses, you can make out a creepy face with creepy eyes! A nice Halloween bonus!

  24. The Gang at LLB says:

    What a beautiful fall journey…Mama remembers the smell of roasting chestnuts when she used to visit New York City when the was a young girl…such a wonderful smell!!

    Thanks soooo much for my beautimous Rosy!
    xoxo,
    Rosy

  25. Your Black Maria. Ha, ha!! I know you’re in lockdown again, which can be really hard on people with dogs (or dogs with people). I hope it passes quickly but in the meantime, enjoy your weekend and try, really try, to stay out of trouble. 🙂

  27. Mom remembers the smell and taste of chestnuts from the street vendors in New York City. She never had to walk on them though. That had to hurt your paws.

  28. Memories of Eric and Flynn says:

    I love roasted chestnuts too. We put them on a small shovel and put it in the fire.

  29. I’ve never had roasted chestnuts, something I should try.

  30. KB says:

    Da Phenny is a wussy?!? I would’ve never guessed!

  31. The OP Pack says:

    Oh, the chestnut path looks absolutely beautiful. Mom was wondering about all the walnuts we see on the ground when we walk by the donkeys’ property. There are tons of them, but they kind of yucky to us.

    Beautiful yellow rose!!!

  32. Marsha Gay says:

    We used to have chestnuts in our back yard. They were pretty painful to step on.

  33. rottwlrmom says:

    My uncle in Mississippi used to grow those. I sure hated stepping on them! He taught me to peel them with my shoes!

  34. Lee and Phod says:

    Sad you can’t get roasted chestnuts. Love that they were sold at the cemetery.

  35. Jan K says:

    I have never had a roasted chestnut! Around here it is acorns that cover the ground. I don’t think humans eat those, but the wildlife loves them, and Luke nibbles on one occasionally too!

  36. Lavinia Ross says:

    It’s been a long time since I have had roasted chestnuts. The yellow roses are beautiful!
