Pressure Cooker Oktoberfest Recipes

The Dreaded Clip Show Syndrome

I guess this post is the blog version of the TV “clip show”. You know, the cop-out shows in which something happens, such as our protagonist getting hit on the head with a bowling ball causing amnesia (I hate it when that happens), which necessitates the relating of various past episodes (and being able to use already shot footage), therefore jogging the memory of our hero until at the end his memory is completely restored and ready for more zany hijinks the following week.

Hmmm, I think I got a little off track here. What I really am trying to do, after noticing that the past couple days, people have been visiting my site after searching for Oktoberfest recipes. Since I have a few recipes that are perfect for the occasion, I thought it would be helpful to put links for them all in one spot.

Geniesst!

The Pressure Cooker Convert Poll

Since we have been going through a heatwave here for a couple weeks, my pressure cooker recipes have slowed down a bit, but I have been working behind the scenes (behind the scenes=at the beach!). I’ve been trying to think of ways to improve my site without straying too far from the theme of the blog.

Keeping that in mind, I just wanted to throw something out there to see what others might think. Lately I’ve been toying with the idea of posting some recipes for some of the side dishes that I have shown, side dishes that may not use the pressure cooker such as the Bacon Cole Slaw with Homemade Mayo that I showed in my recent post on Pressure Cooker Pulled Turkey. Now, I don’t want to go too far beyond the scope of this blog, which, of course, is pressure cooking. But is including side dishes that pair well with the pressure cooker recipes too far out of bounds?

So I pose this question: Would you like to see some of these recipes included on this blog to accompany the pressure cooker recipes, or would you prefer that only pressure cooker recipes appear on this blog?

I would very much appreciate any and all comments you might have.
