Time for our weekly whirl through the blogosphere in search of everything and anything Amish. Some interesting posts and tasty discoveries to share, so let's get right to it!
CHICKEN TATER TOT CASSEROLE: Tater tot casserole has a following among the Amish, but this has a twist: Chicken Tater Tot Casserole. Check out the recipe on Charm City Ramblings this week, the recipe comes from an Amish cookbook. Click here.
CHERYL MCNULTY NEW AMISH PAINTING IN PROGRESS: I am excited to see this one when it is finished! Two Amish youngsters with their horse. Some may inquire about the red scarf the Amish girl is wearing. You do see that on occasion in Amish country, young girls who will wear a scarf type head-covering as opposed to the traditional kapp. And those scarves vary in color. I've seen Amish people wearing pretty right before. Once, near Sugarcreek, Ohio I saw a young Amish man getting out of a buggy and he was wearing a bright, ketchup red colored shirt. I've regretted not talking to him and asking more about what church he belonged to and the color meaning, if any. So, to see Cheryl's latest, click here!
ODE TO OCTOBER: Read Bruce Stambaugh's wonderful tribute to his favorite month - October. I love October, but with the shadow of November lurking, I doubt October will ever be a favorite. But as Bruce says, without winter there can be no spring. Well said. Click here to read his essay.
SHUFFLEBOARD: Enough Amish snowbirds are trickling into the Florida winter enclave of Pinecraft that the shuffleboard courts were able to host a few games. Love these photos on Katie Troyer's blog. Check it out here.
