A quick dose of Amish news to end your week:
MINI PUMPKIN LOAVES: Great gift to hand out to a holiday hostess or otherwise please guests....check out this recipe from Amish Country chef, Lea Ann Miller.
PENNSYLVANIA DUTCH LANGUAGE: There has been a lot of focus on the Pennsylvania Dutch language lately, here is another article about it...some things you read say the language is in decline, others say it is not. I will say, though, that just because the Amish population is growing doesn't necessarily mean the PA Dutch language is. Yes, the Amish still speak this German dialect, but with each generation more and more English words get introduced into the vocabulary and it gradually breaks down the language. Just my observation.

AMISH COUNTRY COOKIE TOUR: Man, as someone who has never met a cookie he didn't like this sounds amazing. I might have to put this on my "bucket list" of things to do someday....(love the way the writer had the self-discipline to collect all these cookies, freeze them, and then unwrap and eat one each day...nope,, not me, they'd have been gone in a day or two).
