Oktoberfest! (if you don't spit when you say it, you're not saying it right)

Being the half-German that she is, Tiff insisted that we celebrate Oktoberfest. Sadly, she left her dirndl in California, and I don't have any lederhosen, but we did everything we could to help her stay in touch with her roots.



Check out this authentic German Onion Soup! It's called suppe aus zwiebel. Can you say yum?! I never knew onions & water could taste so, um, oniony? Those Germans... I am one supportive husband.



The highlight of the night? Bratwurst & brewsky. We had to settle for the IBC, seems we can't find any other decent root-beer. As I'm writing this I remember that they have Sprecher over at the hardware store. Blast! Maybe next year...































The verdict? DELICIOUS!!! Frohe Oktoberfest!

(And I was just joking about the onion soup, that's what was left over after we boiled our brats and finished 'em off on the grill. Ausgezeichnet!)

I hope you got some great yodeling in there too. Or is that Austria? Either way, if you haven't yodeled in a while, I suggest it.

Hmmm, I don't know how I feel about those brats. The root beer is yummy though.
Braden, I'm so impressed you know the words to the BYU song. I didn't know there were words until our extreme-cougar-fan friend started singing them during the game. Who knew?

You need to try some of 'Bob's Brat's' that they sell at the Harmon's. They may not be authentic German bratwurst, but the jalapeno flavor are the best I've ever had. Next time you're out we'll have to try them.

German is a language that was developed solely to afford the speaker the opportunity to spit at strangers under the guise of polite conversation. -P.J. O'Rourke
