Even with the trip to cranberry fest (bought 15 pounds of cranberries, 1 pound of dried craberries, and three bottles of wine) and a trip to the leinenkugel brewery. we got home in time and cooked a meal for my wife's cousin and girlfriend who were traveling across the country.
They are both from Germany. I made a special trip friday to my local microbrewery for two growlers of limited edition brews. Liderhosen Oktoberfest lager, and a Imperial Pilsner aged in Pinot Noir wine barrels.
Who would have guessed two people from Germany didn't drink.
My grilled Teriyaki marinated Flank steak, grilled asparagus, and Baked acorn squash was well enjoyed by all.
