WORDLESS WEDNESDAY







A typical Brussels' stand with grilled sweet chestnuts and hot snails. You can see them on markets or on street corners in Brussels. It is part of the folklore when it is cold.

I saw the chestnuts in Turkey too, although it wasn't cold earlier this month!
(Glad we only have the roasted chestnuts here, lol. You keep the snails!)

I can't say I've ever seen snails for sale on the sidewalk! Chestnuts, yes.

Oh yes, I'm very much looking forward to Jientje's visit! I have all sorts of plans to cram into two days. It will be so fun to meet her.
What a world, eh?

The Chestnuts sound lovely, the snails sound like a desperate solution to garden trouble LOL

I would definitely have to try that if I visit Brussels, particularly if it is cold. And I mean both the chestnuts and snails (I pride myself on trying local things when I travel).

Chestnuts are sold on the street of Toronto but the snails are a new one for me!

Thom said...

Wow...I've never heard of such a thing to be sold. I'd love to try them. Would it make me go slower?

Melli said...

I'll have a bag of chestnuts -- YOU can have the snails! :)

Hot snails. Hmmm... I'll have to try them.

Chestnuts I've seen before, but snails????? Really... Hot only? Not with garlic taste? Hubby might like them if they're with garlic.
