So apparently Oktoberfest starts tomorrow and the celebration continues until October 4th. Snuck right up on us, didn't it? And since we'll all need lots of sustenance before raiding any beer gardens this weekend, some hearty German fare sounds about right. SeriousEats has a bunch of suggestions and recipes, but this is the one I'm into the most after my newfound respect for Kielbasa: Kielbasa with Pierogi and Sauerkraut. There's really not much cooking going on here at all, so for any of you lurkers who are afraid to give it a shot, there's nothing to be scared of. Kielbasa is crazy flavorful on it's own right out of the package, a jar of sauerkraut, and pierogies are right in the frozen foods aisle. And your friends? It'll blow their leiderhosens right off.
