Oktoberfest planning – need ideas for appetizers and desserts; can you help?
As Mother Earth prepares for her last, loveliest bow, leaf peepers will have to wait a bit longer this year. Summer’s warm days prevail, my patio flowers remain lively and most vegetables are harvested. All that remains is digging potatoes, a chore I’ve been putting off.
Yet the morning air is crisp and this New Englander can feel the season changing. My thoughts begin to turn toward apple picking, checkered table clothes, baking pies and of course, Oktoberfest.
This year I’ve chosen my favorite Sauerbraten for the annual celebration; paired with red cabbage, potato pancakes and a few other favorites. I need a few other ideas for appetizers and desserts; can you help? I’d love to hear your suggestions.
