Fri, Oct 11 - It has been so much fun being parked near our good friends Barb and Mitch and Pat and John.  We seem to always have something going on.  In the mornings we play Pickleball followed by Water Aerobics for us women!!  And then we often plan something together in the afternoon.  At Happy Hour one afternoon, I mentioned that I wanted us to have Oktoberfest while we were all together.  Mitch (who is a Chef) immediately spoke up:  "I'll fix some Sauerbraten and Red Cabbage with Apples and some Spaetzle."  I was overwhelmed!!  I was just going to fix some Brats!!!  So it was settled!

Barb and Chef Mitch enjoying some Sam Adams Oktoberfest beer before dinner.

Pat and John don't drink beer but they enjoyed their bottled water.

Ken and Faye having hard pretzel with mustard with their Oktoberfest beer!

Did I mention Ken had mustard!!!

Oktoberfest dinner is served!!!  Sauerbraten, Red Cabbage, Spaetzle and gravy!

UUUMMMMM!!!  Wonderful!!

The group after dinner, waiting for Cake!!!

German Chocolate Cake!!  It was a joint project.  I baked the cake and Barb frosted it with her special Coconut Pecan Frosting.  Served with Coffee Kahlua, it was the perfect ending to the perfect Oktoberfest dinner!!!

Thank you so much Mitch for doing all the cooking!!  And to everyone else who made this a most memorable Oktoberfest for Faye!!!
