What do you do with chestnuts? How do you store them. How long do they last? Recipes?
I was given about 5 lbs and I am trying to figure out what to do with them?
And Ham steaks, any good recipes? I am spending way to much time on the computor trying to find recipes etc...

Last night I made a great a chilli using butternut squash and cummin instead of tomatoes and chilli powder... It was so yummy. And served it with rosemary muffins.
So now I want something equally as exciting with ham steaks LOL.

My daughter is feeling better, but now my son has a sore throat...

No money spent today... yeah.
Spent the morning cleaning.
Trying to decide if I should drive and go weight lifting ( I have no other reason to go out though... so I am feeling guilty thinking about using the gas0 but also feeling guilty about not going, can't win).

My eldest delivered the last of the frozen food fundraiser items to the neighbours (scout fundraiser) and one neighbour gave her 5 cadbury chocolate bars! One for each of us..

Ok, back to the problem of chestnuts and hamsteaks.

    What are steamed chestnuts? Do you do anything with them, or eat them as snacks?
    How long do I steam them for?...help...

    I eat them as snacks. Think "chestnuts roasting on an open fire."

    I just throw a layer of them into a pot with enough cold water to cover, bring to a boil, then let them simmer. Not sure how long - just 20 minutes or so - I can kind of tell by the fragrance. Peel and eat! I like them cold, too, but they are definitely best while they are still hot.

    If you prefer, you can roast them in the oven. Just put them in a single layer on a baking pan in a 400F oven for 15-20 min. AND BE SURE TO POKE A FEW HOLES IN THEM FIRST...trust me....
