Throwback Tuesday Post (TBTP) from 2015: Charming traditional Swiss and German New Year's Eve recipe: raclette, a melted-cheese delight! Informal for friends and family, in the same manner as fondue. Each guests melts their own portion on a cozy winter evening.
Throwback Tuesday Post (TBTP) from 2014: Ever wonder how to pull off a Thanksgiving dinner in a foreign country? I have done it a few times, and the challenge of finding the right ingredients is a big one. Here is 2014's event. Living in Munich at the time, my husband and I invited some German friends and one Aussie to celebrate this most-American of holidays!
Throwback Tuesday Post (TBTP) from 2014: Everyone knows Oktoberfest: the biggest beer party in the world. But do you know that the opening procession is for the workers? Horse-drawn beer wagons adorned with flowers and hops vines, plus all the brewery workers, beer tent wait staff and anyone serving up the suds in any way get to parade down the streets of Munich to lead the crowds to the official opening of the grandest beer party you've ever seen!
It's almost time for Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany. However, if you have no Lederhosen or are in the Tampa area of Florida, you can celebrate the German tradition with a couple of quaffs from the International Beer Garten in Lutz, FL, just off the Suncoast Parkway at Highway 54 in Pasco County. Tell 'em I sent ya. Prost!
