Anyway, I'm already planning away for this year's party. Now that we're married and grown-up, I'm ready to class it up a bit. In the past, I've barely decorated, mostly just putting out food and booze and letting our guests take over the house. This year, I want to make it look pretty. I want it to scream FALL PARTY.

I love the thought of these lining the steps into the house, or along our new retaining wall...
Every year, there are a few specific dishes that our guests can count on. Brats cooked in beer, onion, and pepper. Soft pretzels (I cheat and buy them from Philly Pretzel Factory). Corn and olive dip. Oktoberfest-style beers (which just happen to be my favorite style of all). Two years ago, I found a recipe for a reuben dip. I know technically reubens are considered Irish, but since they have saurkraut in them, I consider them part-German. Like me!
