Okay, we have some interesting posts this week on Blogroll so let's jump right in!
AMISH CHICKEN SCHNTIZEL: Joe's Butcher Shop in Indiana delivers another amazing Amish-themed recipe this
week that I had to share. For some reason I always think of "Sam the Butcher", the distinctive-voiced blue-collar everyman who was housekeeper Alice's on-again, off-again beau in the 70s sitcom, The Brady Bunch. Next time I am in central Indiana I'll stop by Joe's and see if he is like Sam. In the meantime, enjoy Joe's great recipe here!
RAISIN BRAN FRIENDSHIP BREAD: You need to be well-versed in sourdough to pull this recipe off. But there is a link to "starter" in this recipe, apparently it makes a tasty bread! Click here for the recipe!
AMISH SOY CHICKEN? I stumbled upon a recipe for "Amish chicken" this past week, but I will say that the vast majority of Amish cooks I know would never use soy milk or soy flour in a recipe. Soy just isn't something common to Amish culinary culture. But this recipe comes from an "abstinent recipe" site which, my understanding, is that abstinent recipes contain no sugar or traditional wheat flour....so, this recipe is likely an adaptation of an existing Amish chicken recipe. So, if you are looking for an Amish chicken recipe with a healthy twist this may be for you!
CHERYL MCNULTY AMISH ART: Don't mean to swoon over her artwork all the time, but I do love it. I just think Cheryl captures the Amish ambiance so perfectly in both scenery and facial expressions of her human representations. She has two pastel works to share with us this week, one is of "Emma" a composite of what I'd call a "typical Amish girl" in Lancaster County, PA. The other is a "farmstand scene." In addition to just being exquisite works of art, the photos sing summer....ahhh, I can't wait until Amish farmstands are selling ripe and ready fruits and veggies. Click here for Emma and click here for the Farmstand work.
HAD ENOUGH WINTER? Let me torture you with a visit to one of my favorite blogs, Tom the Backroads Traveler is in Maui this week....click here to soak in his images of sun and surf.
