A note to my homeland, Minnesota

MN, you are damn cold.  Cold, as in I can’t believe you let it snow in May and rained out the only Twins game I’ll have tickets to in the next 2+ years.  Now that’s cold, MN.  Cold.

In other ways though, I have to say that you came through for me.  Beer brats, chicken wings and good ol’ fashioned apple pie were consumed.  Babies laughed and puppies cheered.  It was a seriously good time.

And because I want you to have a MN good time too, I’ll share with you my secret (right, as secret as that secret room in my parents’ house) recipe:

Beer brats

1 dozen brats

Beer, to cover (Don’t use your fancy micro-brew, that is just silly.  Be a man and use Coors Light.)

1 medium onion, roughly chopped

Place brats in a large saucepan or Dutch oven with the onions and cover with beer.  Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer until brats are almost cooked through.  Remove the brats and finish on grill.  Serve with sauerkraut, onions, pickle relish, and all other delicious tidbits.
