So, I spent the day yesterday with Gloria and Daniel Yoder. Gloria writes the weekly Amish Cook column and resides in the tiny crossroads of a village called Flat Rock in the far southern rural reaches of Illinois.
Gloria did some incredible cooking (recipes and photos in the days ahead), took me on a bit of a driving tour (well, I did the driving) of the Flat Rock Amish community and was just her usual very hospitable self. It was an enjoyable day!
So I'm going to spend today regrouping and processing my photos, stories, and memories and I'll be sharing more. But one of the first things I was struck by when I walked into her kitchen was the amazing assortment of fresh fruits and veggies plucked from her garden. They just looked stunning almost too artistic to eat. Below are the fruits and veggies and a few other scenes from our day!
Hi, this is Mary Terry from Pryor OK. I live just north of Chouteau, Inola, and Mazie. When we visit different Amish communites i always ask them if they know anybody from there and they always say yes..We love looking at the farms and visiting many other places..Oh, yes..the places we visit are Holmes Couny and Shipshewana..That is spelled wrong i think..I will check in again soon...im going to read all the articles you have...
Thanks, Mary, hope you come back here again and one of these days I'd love to visit the Amish in Chouteau!
