Everyone loves a grilled brat. And the jury is out … do you love sauerkraut or not? (wink-wink)

Bratwurst is an easy ingredient to keep stocked in the fridge! And, all the beautiful, vibrant colors of a condiment tray are fun to serve with this BRATS TRAY!

You can deck out your brat burger or sandwich in so many ways!

But the easiest?

Just serve them on a tray with all the toppings, fresh fruit, and corn on the cob! Oh, and don’t forget the sauerkraut.

Here’s our favorite mustard: Handlmaier Sweet Mustard. Stock up on a few jars, because if your family is like ours, you’ll quickly go through them.

How to prepare a Brats Board:

  1. Cook brats according to packaging. We love to grill them, and also lightly grill the buns.
  2. On a tray or board, place buns and brats along the outside. Next, place your corn alongside the buns, leaving the center open.
  3. Arrange sauerkraut in the center, followed by mustards, and finally the cherries. Garnish corn with cilantro and serve!

Much needed rest

I’ve been thinking about rest. We have benches in different areas where we live, so when you’re out walking … sit for awhile. Relax, meditate, take it all in.

One thing I’ve learned through this season of life is to just take life a little slower.

Laying down for 20 minutes, sitting on a bench and just staring into the royal blue, or even laying in our hammock. Heading up to the lake and just sitting by the water, listening to the sounds around you.

These are the things about summer I am enjoying. Slow and easy.

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass, under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” ― John Lubbock

Happy resting this week, Friends!
