Do you know some of the folk lore sayings about October?
“Rain in October
Means wind in December”….."
“If the October moon comes without frost,
expect no frost till the moon of November”.
Did some clean up today and threw away some yard clutter, along with reconnecting the new hose we had just coiled up 100 feet of, without kinks, and then had to use it to fill the waterbed. So everything is back where it should be.
DOG HALLOWEEN COSTUMES
A policeman passing by screeched to a stop and wrestled the man to the ground. After cuffing the man he stood him up and asked him, "What do you think you're doing?"
After a moment the man replied, ... "Well, I've always wanted to strike a happy medium."
Oktoberfest is all about eating decadent German food and drinking a ton of beer, so what better way to celebrate than a slow cooked bratwurst cooked in beer? The meat is spicy, yet chewy and literally melts in your mouth. Top with some slow cooked vegetables and soft apples for the perfect Oktoberfest meal!
(4) uncooked bratwurst links
(2) medium apples, chopped
(1) red onion, chopped
(2) cloves of garlic, chopped
(6) ounces wheat or amber ale
(2) tablespoons brown sugar
(2) tablespoons Dijon mustard
Dashes of salt and pepper
Place the bratwurst, apples, onion and garlic in a 5-quart slow cooker, lightly greased. Add the beer, brown sugar, mustard and salt and pepper.
Cover and cook on low for about 6 hours, or until the meat is done (160 degrees F).
Serve warm over the slow cooked vegetables, in a hoagie bun or eat on its own!
