Wow, these noodles were amazingly delicious! I'm a sucker for homemade noodles. These were being sold by Clara Yoder of the Wheat Ridge Amish settlement. She had bags of narrow noodles and broad noodles for sale. Rachel and I got a bag of the broad noodles. That night we went home and feasted on broad buttered noodles and, wow, were they good!:)
Meanwhile, after leaving the Amish Birding Symposium, Rachel and I just took some time to explore the beautiful Adams County countryside. As spring begins to settle in, there are few places in Ohio more beautiful. Check out the inviting sky and green hills outside the place where the symposium was held. Adams County is unlike other parts of Ohio that are flat and farmed, this area is rugged and hilly, sometimes earning the nickname "Ohio's Little Smokies." And, of course, if you are visiting Amish country, don't forget to stop and get some eggs! Nothing beats farm fresh eggs. Crack open an fresh egg and compare it to something at the supermarket and you'll never want another supermarket egg. Stopping and patronizing Amish businesses like little home-based egg operations is a great way to contribute to the local economy, your health, and wonderful way to meet people.
Hmm, farm eggs may be what's cooking here tonight.
What a beautiful place! Should we ever decide to move and leave the "sunny south" that would be my first pick of places to go. How lucky to be a resident of Adams County Ohio!
I grew up near Newcomerstown, OH 25 miles from Amish country. Amish ran the restaurant at the Livestock Auction Barn in Sugar Creek. On one side were parked cars, the other, horses and buggies. I always enjoyed out trips there.
Mala, welcome! Is that restaurant still open?
Kevin, do they have any big stores in that area? Like Meijer, Sam's Club, J C Penney, Kohls, etc ? I agree this is beautiful country......I live in Ohio too, and I think not too far from Adams County too...and it is absolutely beautiful here especially in the spring and summer.....but we just do not have any big stores around here that I was used to, living in MI. have to travel almost an hr. for the big stores I mentioned.....even a Dunkin Donut.....we do have bakeries here tho.....
