I've hesitated posting these photos for awhile, no, there's nothing racy about them:) Unless your heart races at amazing food like the kind you are about to see. Rachel and I were attending a Sunday evening supper in St. Ignatius, Montana New Order Amish settlement a couple of years ago. There was an amazing meal followed by a very enjoyable singing session. There were two long tables, one was a dessert line, the other for supper and salads. Why have I hesitated to post the photos? I had permission from those in attendance to take the food photos. So why hesitate? I know if I post these, everyone will ask me for recipes for the items!:) But these photos are too delicious-looking and culturally insightful to let pass, so I am just going to share them. It was a large gathering it would have been difficult to pin down each person who made each dish and there's a lot of fellowship and visiting at such an occasion that swap recipes. So, sit back and enjoy and maybe a few of you can reverse engineer some of these recipes. Below is a fruit pizza of some sort and doesn't it look amazing? Now, stay tuned for dessert photos from this event which I'll post later!:) We do have some good recipes from St. Ignatius coming up in the upcoming cookbook, Amish Cooks Across America.
