Weekends are a time of more slow-paced family suppers in Amish homes. The pressures (yes, even Amish have them) of the work week are cast aside for conversation and suppers that are a bit more inventive and involved.
Weekends on Amish farms do move to a different rhythm and pace than weekdays. Yes, the chores are the same. The cows still need milking. The eggs still need collecting from the henhouse. The cows still need to be fed. But weekends are a time to catch up on other chores that might not get done during the week. For the men, this might mean cutting the lawn. Or some household carpentry work, repairs, or fix-it jobs. Men may use the weekend to put up a fence, till a garden, or paint a shed.
Women, freed from the weekday jobs of packing school lunches, helping with homework, getting school clothes ready, dealing with after-school snacks, that is their time to catch up on letter-writing, gardening, canning, things that just may get kicked out of the busy weekdays.
Try these five Amish Farmhouse Kitchen Weekend Recipes favorites for suppers on the weekend!
