on the 4th day of Christmas: hearts and sugar-roasted walnuts

As Christmas represents love,  our Christmas tree abounds in that valentine symbol of hearts.  Airy Swedish ones, deep Christmas red, delicately cut from paper that was once a Christmas advent calendar for the children, twinkling plump fabric hearts, and a favorite:  a Southern shout out from my niece, Tracy, from years ago.  Isn't it a hoot?

Today adding to the boxes that have to be sent soon:   these crunchy, slightly sweet roasted walnuts, tossed in cinnamon and brown sugar, with no butter or oil, and a favorite for Christmas gatherings.  You can find the recipe here.

Thanks, Barb! I agree that nothing is more Christmasy than anything with the December quartet of nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and cinnamon. I found myself standing in front of the stove while the walnuts were roasting, taking deep inhales of that warm cloud of cinnamon. Mmmm.
