"Chestnut" Autumn Flavor;


*Present from Next-Door Neighbor*
Around this time of the year, my husband and I are both expecting this seasonal gift from our next-door neighbor whose parents own forest "or grove" of chestnut♪   I am sure I had full smiling face when she came with them. Known as "Atu-Chestnut"; from the region in Yamaguchi-pref.

 Chest nut rice with mixed vegetables was also present cooked by the same neighbor. 
And I cooked Miso-soup with pork meat with it.

Pealing is my husband's job (˘˘)  
Simple Chest Nut Rice I made for next day's lunch;

Seasonal fruits "Pear and Fig"

*Found a Kite sitting on top of the electric pole*
Thank you so much for stopping by and sweat words for the Typhoon. 
We prepared a bit for it. Well, It caused a damage in Kyushu-area.  
I always appreciate your sweet comments.  
Take Good Care of Your Selves;


  1. Oooh autumn is here! The chestnuts look shiny and fresh! I wish I could try your chestnut rice :-) The rice balls with chestnuts look so yummy! I’m not sure if I’ve seen the peeler your husband is using. It looks very useful!
    The kite is gorgeous. Amazing he can perch on such thin wire :-)
    Have a wonderful new week, Miyako san xoxo

  2. Your food looks so good, as usual, perfect for the season :) What a gorgeous bird that you found, too.

    How great to see you at 'My Corner of the World' this week!! Thanks for linking.

  3. We used to have a chestnut tree. They are a lot of work to prepare to eat.
    Lovely kite. Birds of prey are so amazing.

  7. Dearest Miyako,
    That is great for having a chestnut grove!
    Anything prepared with chestnuts is yummy.
    Loved them toasted in the oven, then peeling them while still hot.
    Your dishes sound all delicious.

  8. You have a good neighbour. Your dishes look yummy. Have a nice week
