October, fall weather is here, recipes to warm you up


October Recipes:

Our neighborhood is having an OctoberFest party,and it was suggested to bring a side dish, the main entree will be “Brats” in assorted flavors accompanied by mustard and relishes. Thinking of something a little hearty and sweet and sour, here’s Bavarian meatballs. I’ll make these appetizer size.

Bavarian Meatballs

MEATBALLS:

1 lb. ground beef

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/4 cup dry bread crumbs ( add spices parsley thyme,or lemon pepper)

1 egg slightly beaten

2 tsp horseradish

1 TBSP ketchup

1 tsp salt or Lite salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1/4 cup water

3 TBSP bacon drippings

Directions:

Mix first 9 ingredients. Form into balls 1 1/4 inches in diameter and brown on all sides, in bacon drippings, turning with your trusty long -handled sauté spoon/ spatula. Drain.

Next, prepare this mixture of sweet and sour goodness.

2 raw medium potatoes, grated

2 apples, peeled and quartered

2 cups sauerkraut ( love this stuff!)

1 onion sliced

1/4 cup sweet white wine

2 tsp brown sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp pepper

1/8 tsp caraway seed

Grease casserole with bacon drippings. Layer first 4 ingredients in casserole. Mix remaining ingredients; por over. Top with meatballs. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Serves 4.

To double the recipe to serve 8, use 2 lbs ground beef. Make smaller size meatballs as appetizer size.
Will keep warm in a crock pot for the party.

RECIPE: Quick Herb Rolls using canned Refrigerator Biscuits

1/2 cup butter

1 1/2 tsp parsley flakes

1/2 tsp Dill-weed

1 TBSP onion flakes

2 TBSP Parmesan cheese

1 ( 10 or 11 oz. ) can refrigerator biscuits, ( buttermilk variety)

Melt butter in 9 inch pan. Mix herbs and cheese together and stir into butter. Let stand 15 to 30 minutes. Cut biscuits into halves or fourths and swish around in herb butter to coat all sides. Bake at 425 degrees for 12 – 15 minutes. This may be prepared several hours ahead and refrigerated. Serves 4.

In the quaint historic town, there was a wonderful bookstore called ” the Bookworm”, situated in a 100 plus year house, with delightful reading nooks tucked in beside windows on the upper floors. It has since moved into a much smaller location, has less charm.

    Hello, im writing a comment on this post about another post. Im not sure how i got to this post. Anyway, I just read your story about your mothers time growing up…i think you wrote it several years ago. My grandmother was born right around the same time as your mother and grew up with her sister, uncle, and grandmother in Lost Creek #2 (which she often refers to as “the patch”.) The coal mines are no longer operating, but in those days they were booming and the road (the only road) in lost creek #2 was a coal dirt stretch, and a thru-way to a mine entrance.

      Hello, C. James, how wonderful to hear that you share the same. Do you and your family still live in the area or have you visited recently?
      Thank- you for the comment. When I mention the word blueberries, my mother still recalls picking blueberries to sell as a the eldest child, leading her next eldest 2 siblings.
