I seriously cannot believe August is already here. I feel like I’ve spent my entire summer house hunting, getting ready to move, moving, getting our old house ready to sell, and selling. Now that we are f-i-n-a-l-l-y offically moved in and unpacked, I’m planning to spend the month of August savoring all of the fun summer things I haven’t done enough of yet this year. Bike rides. Dog walks. A picnic. And of course, lots of grilling out and spending time on our new patio.

Bratsgiving Day is August 16th – a day to whip up some delicious grilled brat recipes for your friends! I really recommend  Johnsonville® Beer n’ Bratwurst for your celebration. They are a delicious combination of the classic flavor of Johnsonville® sausage and the rich taste of beer. To add even more beer flavor, I whipped up quick beer queso using sharp cheddar cheese and a local brew. And naturally, I served these brats with . . . beer!
