Some people swear it’s not a tailgating party without these on the menu. And I tend to agree with them.
These brats are simmered in beer, making them extra juicy and filled with lots of flavor. Once grilled, drop in a bun, top with whatever you like, and you have a perfect snack for the game. The following recipe is for six bratwursts—if you are making more, double or triple all the ingredients to meet your needs.

Entertaining the Bakersfield Way by Miles Johnson
For some, salad is the beginning of the meal but for Gino Valpredo, owner and proprietor of Luigi’s, a fresh salad takes its place right next to the main course. When it comes time to serve up dinner, nothing could be simpler than starting with a fresh green salad that you’ve prepared in advance. In this case, Gino suggests pairing the sweetness of fresh orange segments and the peppery tang of arugula. Very few salads can match the sheer simplicity, yet complex taste, of this Italian-inspired course.
Entertaining Tip: Give your guests the option of creating their own salad by assembling a small buffet of salad greens and ingredients. A perceptive host will quickly know which ingredients to omit the next time guests arrive.
