Sautéed Mushrooms and Potato Salad for Your Oktoberfest
Did you know that at last year’s Oktoberfest in Germany, 950 identity cards, 570 wallets, 300 pairs of eye glasses, 400 keys, 480 cell phones, 2 wedding rings and 2 license plates were among the lists of the items lost at the festival, according to the official Oktoberfest website
Since things can obviously get a little out of hand at festivals such as these, might we suggest throwing your own Oktoberfest party at home?
Good beer and great food is really all you need to set the mood! And we have some great recipe suggestions for you below!
