Look at this pile of pretzels! I must admit that I did not make the pretzels for Oktoberfest this year. Our annual Oktoberfest party has grown so large that it just isn't feasible to make ALL the food for the party and actually enjoy the party too. So, this year we subbed out the pretzels to a local German bakery we discovered a few months ago. Best decision EVER.
Don't worry, there was still plenty to do to get ready for the party. Here's my entire Oktoberfest menu this year:
- Beer brats and buns
- German potato salad
- Obatdza cheese dip
- German cucumber salad
- Plum vanilla crumble bars
- Zwetschgendatschi (Prune Plum Cake) from Das Cookbook
- German candies
- Oktoberfest beer
I'm on the lookout all year long for interesting Oktoberfest recipes. You can see my collection of Oktoberfest recipes on Pinterest.
Last but not least, here's my cute German husband in his lederhosen with Halley the Wunderpuppy, and a few photos I snapped while assembling the Zwetschgendatschi.
