A nutty guy

 An American car
 1939 Chevy coupe, me 'n this car were born the same year!
And now: I am thankful for nuts!
I enjoy nuts. I like peanuts from raw, salted to honey roasted, even boiled. Then there are Pecans, walnuts, hickory nuts, Pistachios, Almonds, hazelnuts and Cashews.
I eat some nuts every night. What brought this up is pistachios. What do you do with the ones you cannot open with your finger nails?  I usually throw them away with the other hulls, but I hate doing it.
I like nuts in a salad, on ice cream and in pies. I have never been a big fan of the pumpkin pie. But once I ate Thanksgiving dinner at an Orphanage. The cook a sweet lady served pumpkin pie with pecans on top. The flavors went so good together I began to enjoy pumpkin pie.
As a Teenager I liked Pepsi/Coke with salted peanuts poured down the neck of the bottle after some liquid had been sipped out.
My daddy’s favorite was parched peanuts. I even like ‘green’ peanuts just after they are dug from the ground.
To me the king of nuts is the cashew because that was sis Shirley & my treats when we got a chance to go to Sears and Roebuck with dad.  When we passed the candy counter it wasn’t the candy we wanted it was cashews.
Are you a nut type person, maybe even nutty? 

It is Thanksgiving, I am thankful for so many things it would be impossible for me to list them. But taking a shot gun view,
I am thankful for:

My wife
My family
and foremost my LORD.

I too throw away the pistachio nuts I can't get opened. It does seem like a waste indeed. Might have to google it sometime to see if there are any suggestions to crack them open. I too like nuts. All kinds! We found a "deadly" new cookie shop here so we went last night and got 4 cookies; two eaten last night, the other two tonight's dessert! Happy Thanksgiving Sherry and Jack!

So glad to know I'm not the only NUT aficionado in Blogville! Come to think of it, I don't know there's a nut I don't like. My tops are macadamia, cashews and pistachios. Unfortunately, all 3 are pretty dear ($), so I content myself with plain old unsalted nuts in the jar.

'Saw something recently on line, showing people they can use a half of one shell to open others. But I know what you mean about those not ready to crack. I've tried using my teeth ... when no-one's looking, but wouldn't recommend it.

I love all nuts. I love hot boiled peanuts. I think my favorite nut is the Brazilian Nut but thats not what we used to call them.

Still full from Thanksgiving.
