We say celebrate at home, with these great Maibock Mushroom, Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Sliders from Lori Rice, author of “Food on Tap: Cooking with Craft Beer.” Maibock is a German spring beer dating back to the 13th Century. These sliders make a great starter to any Oktoberfest feast.

Determining your food choices early may help you prepare early and avoid the holiday lines at the supermarket. The good thing with onions is they can store a long time without spoiling. Just put them in a clean, dry spot. But don’t store them near potatoes. Fruitsandveggies.org states that while onions, potatoes and garlic are similar in their storage suggestions, storing potatoes near onions speeds up potato’s ripening. That’s why can’t you store onions and potatoes together.
When you think holidays, put yummy onion recipes at the top of your list. They have tons of nutritional value without losing the flavor. They also help lower blood pressure, ease heart conditions and may reduce your chances of getting certain cancers.
