Gearing Up for This Year’s Oktoberfeast

As we've done for the past couple of years, we're planning a night of hearty German food and beverages.

I'm not going to write up new posts about all of the foods – it's pretty much the same menu with a variation here and there, so if you'd like to read about the food prep, here are the things we'll be making:




We'll also be serving assorted brats and mustards, and marinated mushrooms – ooh, I could post that recipe, couldn't I?  Bill made them.  Hmmm…maybe I'll do that today.  Where was I?  Oh yes, and red cabbage – there's another recipe I haven't posted ever.

In the past I've made Onion Cake and Pumpernickel Bread (which, apparently, I haven't posted about either)…not sure if I'll be doing that this year.  Our guest list is a bit smaller, and really, the stars of the show are the sauerbraten and spaetzle – and the gravy.

I'll also be making a Linzertorte, which was at Bill's request.  I already know the house is going to smell fabulous when I get that in the oven.

But for now, there's a lot of cleaning to be done around here. 

So, what are your plans for the weekend?

  1. Hahahaha! Sort of! It’s the charcoal chimney for our grill – I was getting coals ready so I could cook breakfast out there one morning. I just loved how it looked!
