Autumn is here and there are nuts to be had already.
Cobnuts from St George’s Market Belfast present a culinary quandary.
http://www.cobnuts.co.uk/recipes.htm has some helpful suggestions.
I had thought that roasting would be a good start and then maybe adding them to ice cream or some sort of sauce.

The squirrel is a fine example of cross stitch work. Now you might think that cross stitch is only for the likes of wrinklies with little to do – but you would be wrong. Throughout the land there are fine young women creating masterpieces of cross stitch work.
It’s a bit like whittling without the chips of wood to clear up. Unless you happen to be sat on a wood stump or other aid to seating in the outdoors, in which case tidying up after a bit of whittling is unnecessary.
Whistling as one whittles or cross stitches is pretty controversial. I would caution against whistling anywhere apart from outdoors (whether in the throes of cross stitching or content in one’s whittling).
Tuneful whistling is hard to achieve. Roger Whittaker was a master practitioner of whistling – http://youtu.be/ICc2MiApS30 but the novice whistler can irritate as much as fingernails on chalkboards.
