So simple but so good

I didn't get this from a recipe, so it's probably not authentic, but it's very simple and makes me feel all deutche:

2 supermarket bratwurst (aka braadworst)
a pack of supermarket saurkraut (aka wijnzuurkool)
an onion
a pepper (I got a yellow one)
a bottle of leffe (brune dubbel)

In a 10 or 12 inch frying pan sautee the onions and peppers on high heat until slightly brown. Move them aside in the pan and sear the bratwurst for about 45 seconds, then turn bratwurst over and sear for another 45 seconds.

Pour in beer until the frothing mess covers half the sausage; cover the pan and reduce heat to a simmer until the liquid boils off. It takes about 8 minutes (ok I just made that up, I didn't watch the clock). Add some more beer, as well as the saurkraut, and simmer until mostly dry. Take out the brats and mix the vegetables together.

I got impatient while waiting for the sausages to cook, so I had some warm crusty bread (they sell parbaked bread here that you can finish off yourself at home) with some pate and brie. Having my own kitchen is bad news. This passage comes to mind:

Phil 3:18-21 For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.
