I have sort of an eclectic mix of topics to showcase today on weekly blogroll. So let's just dig right in!
AMAZING AMISH BREAKFAST CASSEROLE: Breakfast casseroles are hearty staples among the Amish. The recipes are a dime a dozen and generally all similar: some cubed bread, some eggs, some ham, etc...And everytime I vow not to post another because they are all so alike, I find one that I can't resist sharing. This blogger insists this breakfast casserole is different: no soggy bread, no egg asphyxiation (so many eggs in the casserole that it smothers everything else out)....she makes this sound like a "Goldilocks" breakfast casserole, meaning "just right." Click here to check it out. I will say it does look good in the photo!
KNOCK-KNOCK: Remember all those "knock-knock" jokes when you are a kid. Few of them were actually funny, they were just...sometimes..clever...but most of the time just goofy. Boys Life Magazine posted an Amish-themed knock-knock joke on their site. Just kind of a whiff of nostalgia and nice to see that at least Boys Life seems to still be a wholesome, down-to-earth publication. I didn't know it was still around...Click here for the Amish knock-knock joke.
AMISH WEDDING VOWS: I'm skeptical of the accuracy of this post but it raises a great question which I've never pondered: what are Amish wedding vows like? I'll ask Gloria and report back. You can read this post about Amish wedding vows but...it's not very detailed and its contention that all Amish weddings are sort of announced at once at the same time of the year does not ring true. Anyway, click here to read.
MENNONITE SALE: This is an interesting account of a blogger's visit to the Mennonite Horse Drawn Implement Sale and Auction that's held in Scottsville, Kentucky each year. Click here for the account and some interesting photos!
MERRY MENNONITE TALKS CHICKEN MYTHS: How would you like an endless supply of fresh eggs? You can do so by raising your own chickens. It's not as messy or difficult as one might think, the Merry Mennonite dispels 5 common chicken raising myths. Click here to read this interesting post.
PENNSYLVANIA DUTCH FARMERS MARKET - ANNAPOLIS: Lastly, read this account from Melanie in the Middle about what sounds like a delicious showcase of Amish and Mennonite culture in Maryland!
