Bookended between big, calorie-laden breakfasts and end-of-the-day table-groaning suppers, is another meal that we can’t overlook: lunch. Lunch, for most Amish, is that time during the day when you can take a brief break from the farming, the cabinet-making, the shop duties, or the parenting to have a “quick refuel.” And Amish lunch is often more tethered to the season than other meals: BLT sandwiches, using fresh garden tomatoes, fresh soup using potatoes gathered from the garden. Salads like our Amish365 ham salad and chicken salad are also popular midday meals. And then there’s the school and work aspect of lunches: portable meals that can fit inside a lunch-pail. Often that’ll be a Thermos full of soup, a fresh salad, or a PB&J using homemade grape jelly. And, if one is really lucky, one might find a homemade whoopie pie wrapped up in their lunchbox.
