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?
