Although the time has come and gone (and yes, Octoberfest is the US spelling, German was Oktoberfest. Neither is correct or incorrect). I've always found wursts are always a great option. Funny, I never had German potato salad in Germany! But I serve it either hot or at room temp (never cold; the bacon fat coagulates). Kraut .... lots and lots of kraut or red cabbage salad. When I was a kid, Oma (not really my grandmother, just an older friend of the family who lived in Grunwald, outside of Munchen)(excuse my lack of accent marks) used to make a knudel. It was a huge dumpling, I think when I tried to reproduce it I used mashed potatoes as part of the starch. Then it was simmered and sliced, then gravy and braised meat was served with it. If I remember right, a vinegary cucumber salad with dill.

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
