He-Man Brats

“One of the delights of life is eating with friends, 
second to that is talking about eating. 
 And, for an unsurpassed double whammy, 
there is talking about eating while you are eating with friends.” 
Laurie Colwin


The above quote was surely referring to brats, a huge people friendly food.  Brats were probably born for summer time and the grill but, if its fall, that means it’s football season and brat time!

 Just try this recipe and you’ll find they are just as good, if not better, prepared inside.  It’s bratwurst with a twist because of the mild sweet Spanish onions and cabbage that are simmered in beer and flavored with spices.  They are simmered until the beer reduces, caramelizing the onions and cabbage till it turns into a delicious golden sauce. And remember, the better the beer, the better the flavor.

He-Man Brats are definitely a hit at my house and ladies, I’m betting your man will love them also.  They are not usually consumed with wine or other pretentious drinks, they are meant to be washed down with your favorite beer, as in “bratwash!”

Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts!

We went for Sunday rides in the Model-T when my grandmother didn't visit. My parents liked the orange groves, miles and miles of orange trees always either in blossom or full of oranges. My parents had a picnic basket and a metal chest. In the metal chest were frozen cans of fruit on dry ice, and in the picnic basket were weenie and liverwurst and salami sandwiches, potato chips, bananas and soda-pop. The soda-pop was shifted continually back and forth between the metal box and the picnic basket. It froze quickly, and then had to be thawed.
