Featured This Month
Halloween is a time for children and a day when adults can feel and act like children again. I have chosen an easy menu that everyone, children and adults alike, will enjoy and most of the recipes can be prepared at least one day in advance. It features my mother's Chili with Meat and Beans, a family favorite that includes links to my equally delicious turkey and vegetarian versions. The starters are Guacamole and an amazing Jalapeno Cheese Dip served with store-bought or homemade Tortilla Chips. Buttermilk Cornbread and a Mixed Greens Salad are the perfect sides. Dessert is Pumpkin Cheesecake with Gingersnap Crust, a scrumptious conclusion for an autumn meal. I included preparation notes and each recipe has links to alternate choices. To add to the holiday fun, I posted recipes for special Halloween treats, as well as a 'Spooky Halloween Menu' shared by Sue that features 'Mummy Meatloaf', 'Witches Fingers with Fleas' and 'Swampy Smashed Potatoes'. The kids will love it. I hope you enjoy and.......stay safe!
Oktoberfest, sometimes spelled 'Octoberfest' in English-speaking countries, originated in 1810 in Munich, Germany, as part of a royal wedding celebration. It became so popular that it is now celebrated in many areas throughout the world, especially those with a substantial population of German decent. In modern-day Munich, the festival, which includes music, dancing, lots of beer and great food, starts in late September and lasts about sixteen days into early October. In this country, it is celebrated most often throughout the month of October. I posted two of my favorite German menus, one a traditional dinner featuring Sauerbraten, the other a more casual menu with Brat and Sauerkraut Sandwiches. In addition to the menus, I posted numerous German or Pennsylvania Dutch main dishes, side dishes and desserts so that you can mix and match recipes for your own Oktoberfest events.
