Octoberfest - Sept 29, 2010

Roasted Potato Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette

Nick and I attended an Octoberfest themed party this weekend at Ben's to celebrate local beers and German inspired food. I made a roasted potato salad with some of our HVF potatoes. The idea for roasting the potatoes instead of boiling them was in the CSA newsletter and Nick found a recipe online. I omitted the bacon for our vegetarian friends but otherwise followed the recipe pretty closely. The mustard vinaigrette was delicious and the fresh parsley added a nice bit of brightness. Being a non-vegetarian myself, I ate mine alongside an expertly grilled brat.

Homemade Pretzels

Ellen made these super yummy pretzels, which were great dipped in mustard. They were the perfect snack to accompany our afternoon of beer drinking.

New Glarus Gueuze

Nick and I brought along one of the bottles we got on Greg's recommendation when visiting New Glarus Brewing Company a few weekends ago. This particular beer was spontaneously fermented, similar to Belgian Lambics. It was sour but delicious.
