The Menu
Bratwurst and cheddarwurst
Red cabbage with apples
German potatoes
Green beans and spaetzel
Apple crisp
Pumpkin pudding

Every month or so, we take a short trip east for a home-cooked meal and drinks with my family. Oktoberfest started as a family tradition quite a few years ago. We throw a lot of themed cocktail parties at our summer home with family, and we had an event for almost every major holiday throughout the summer. But we didn't have anything for the last long weekend of the season, Columbus Day weekend. From there it has slowly evolved from a cocktail party to a full-blown German feast. Though our family is not German at all, Oktoberfest seemed to be the most fitting theme. And for dessert, we had a little Thanksgiving preview with pumpkin pie pudding and apple crisp. While I can't take credit for this meal, I felt it was definitely worth sharing.
