football and weisswurst

Hallo!  Oh man what is there to say, this poor little blog have been neglected for weeks.  My excuse will be the start of the semester for the two of us.  And with the beginning of the school year came the start to college football season so all effort for our my planned meals have gone to breakfasts on Saturday mornings, and our German Word of the Week board has been dedicated to game information.  I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of time combing through different breakfast and tailgating menus and recipes only to ultimately decide to throw things in the kitchen together, well with one exception.  And now that we are in full fall mode, we have been cycling through horror movies like crazy and I have been seeking out new additions to my Halloween playlist. Happy game day to all!

Movie-wise we plan to watch Blood Glacier.  Currently streaming on Netflix, this movie is about a scientist who travels to the Alps to research global warming when his group discovers a mysterious red liquid seeping out of a glacier that is affecting the local wildlife.
