Sauerkraut Sunday: The Festivals Update Edition

It’s Sauerkraut Festival Season and it looks like Phelps NY and Ackley Iowa top the list of cities having their festivals in May.  Sure, Ackley’s is featured “Darrell the Balloon Guy”, but the award for cutest contest has to go to the corronation of Gavin Bassett and Maeghan Mahoney as…

Sauerkraut Sunday: The Google Recipes Edition

Typically your Sauerkraut Sunday posts are prepared by hitting up Google and searching what’s new in the world of Sauerkraut.  This involves checking the regular web search, the news, the images, sometimes even the shopping parts of Google.  In the future there’s a new place for me to search, the…

Sauerkraut Sunday: The Carb Loading Edition

I decided not to run the Pittsburgh Marathon this year, with all of the fluctuation in my life the last few months I decided it was best to not put that much stress on my body.  I was thinking about everyone who made it out though, so I found a…

I wanted to be festive and post about how the Irish enjoy some good kraut as much as the Germans, but a quick look around Google says that they don’t.  You have to look a little bit closer, and discover that the bond between the Germans and Irish isn’t associated…
