We picked up a case of Dogfish Head’s Christmas pack back in December. My husband handed me a beer and I took a sip. Whuuuuut is this? It’s got all the fabulous hoppiness of their IPAs, but it tastes like someone poured a little Syrah in it. Wine beer!

Jen’s Bratwurst, Potato, and Onion Tray Bake. Easy and Delicious! Bon Bratétit!

My youngest and I walked through Costco hungry yesterday. “Mmmm. Feel like brats?” She responded, “Um, yeah!” I’ve been in Texas for 10 years now, but I grew up in Wisconsin, and sometimes that need for brats just hits. If it were summer, I’d be talking to you about grilling them and tossing them into a beer hot tub, while enjoying an ice cold beer on my partio (like a patio, but equipped for fun. Cred to my friend Tracy for my favorite summer word). A few years ago, I had all my ingredients for the brat tub and it started raining. I love my grill, but draw the line at rain and tornadoes. With that, the Brat Tray Bake was invented. It was so awesomely cozy that it was an obvious keeper. It’s super easy, so kids can get involved and proudly bring trays of yum to smiling people at the table. Niiiice.

Okay, since there’s no tub of beer waiting for your brats on the grill, it’s imperative that you begin with fresh beer brat links. Plain and pre-cooked are right out. Don’t consider them. Unless you have to. Then okay.

I’ve included pics of my kid prepping everything below, because she cracks me up. Her coconut oil hair mask and onion goggle combo is quite the fashion statement, no? The onion goggles do work well, though. Okay, she glared at me….

Bon Bratétit! If you love it, come find me again! 😀

Jen’s Tyrolean Omelet and Cookbook Review: The German Cookbook by Mimi Sheraton. Oktoberfest!

Me and Al2Glückliche Schildkröte! My dear friend and knower of big German words, Alvin Heitmann, gave me the title, explaining that it translates as lucky or happy turtles. Perfect. My husband and I put 5 miles on our sneakers every day, but we’re so slow that I call us the proud turtles. We just got back from the Continue reading “Jen’s Tyrolean Omelet and Cookbook Review: The German Cookbook by Mimi Sheraton. Oktoberfest!”
