Jessica, I've never even seen a chestnut...in fact, it's just been the last few years that I've been able to find pine nuts here.
There are advantages to living in rural areas though...like watching the deer eating persimmons just a few feet from my kitchen window.

Hi Constance, I know what you mean, I went from big city Canada to (what I call) the boonies in Ireland (with a little pit stop in between in Dublin). There are zillions of ingredients and pieces of equiptment that you can't get here. In fact I was quite surprised when I saw chesnuts (at a crazy $$) at the tiny local orgnaic store. Pinenuts are very versitile, and great to have on hand, if you ever do get the chance to try a chestnut, they are lovey though

Here are chestnuts for you Constance!! Are you sure you don't find a tree of chestnut around your house? It is the season right now... I hope you will get to not only see them but taste them... they are such treats!!

LOL, Licia, you beat me to it! I was just coming back to put up a chestnut picture I meant to add as well Constance, that I see your point about rural beauty, I know my DH would jump with joy if a persimmon tree spouted near us (I found them at one store, one and each one - which was about the size of a mandrine orange - was €1.50 [euro] each!). I'm sure you have amazing scenery, and an abundance of wonderful local produce.

Another brussel sprout thought is to cut them into quarters and use them in place of Chinese greens in stir-frys if you don't happen to have any bok choy or such kicking around your kitchen.

Yes sometimes we ponder about the pluses of living in an isolated area especially when the next door neighbour start bi...ing over the "noise" we make late at night (beh, we never do anything so noisy like having the music on full blast or banging on the wall with a hammer... and no one else complains just her!!), or when we must circle around the vicinity of the house for more than half an hour trying to find a parking spot... And there are many lovely places just outside Rome and they cost so much less....Well with what Cristiano does it may not be such a farfetched idea to create a home-based business using remote administration, it is a thought becoming more and more tempting!!

Anyway we did a lovely dish with Brussell Sprout yesterday, we had a power outage for 4 hours so we didn't have much time, and I just kind gathered, mixed and matched everyone's idea to make a quick skillet variety, but it was delicious!!

I pressure cooked the BS crisp tender, cut them in 2 or 4, sautčed chopped onion in a big skillet, then added the BS, steamed chestnut and some left over potatoes, a little herbs, white pepper and salt and sautčed a little more, at the end poured cooking cream and just heated it through... we were more than satisfied with the result!!

That sounds wonderful!

Here's a picture I found that HB snapped of my Thanksgiving Brussels Sprouts last year. These didn't have the red peppers because we forgot to buy them.
