Sunday Sauerkraut: The Sauerkraut Balls Edition

Sunday Sauerkraut: The Sauerkraut Balls Edition


Catherine Sieberling Pond provides the inspiration for todays Sunday Sauerkraut with this post on her blog “In The Pantry”.  I grew up in Western Pennsylvania, and have never seen sauerkraut presented in this way, but I suppose it looks good.  Hey, what doesn’t taste better breaded and fried, right?

Anyway, on to the purpose of Sauerkraut Sundays… As I go through the week, I use Twitter to send out little updates and links.  I realize that I do this quite a bit and that not all of you use Twitter, so with that in mind I’d like to take Sunday to do sort of a week in review.  I’ve selected the most useful of my tweets from the last week and placed them in to the categories that I use in this blog.
