This is our weekly exploration of the blogosphere in search of anything and everything Amish and Plain-related and, frankly, there's not a ton to report. There hasn't been the past month or so. I guess people aren't blogging as much about the Amish:) As always, I did managed to scrape up some good stuff, but some of these aren't even blogs, but still too interesting not to share. I'm not sure where to even start, so let me just jump right in:
98-Year-Old Amish Man Returns: This is one of these stories that was fascinating but there are so many unanswered questions. It doesn't really matter either way because the story is still fascinating, but if this man was/is horse-and-buggy Amish his story is even more fascinating. I suspect, though, he is Beachy Amish, but the story never says. So one is left to guess. Higher education is usually frowned up among the Amish, so if this man is Beachy Amish Mennonite then he is a truly rarity. I would love to try to catch up with him sometime and talk to him more. His story just sounds riveting. Click here to read this news story from Eastern Mennonite University.
5-Ingredient Peach Pudding: Check out Briana's recipe for this tasty-sounding dessert. Briana is a very talented conservative Mennonite blogger and I always enjoy checking in with her.
Amish Chocolate Chip Bars: This recipe is similar to one of my own I posted a few weeks back,but one can never have too many recipes for these, right? Click here to get the recipe!
Amish "Doughnuts": Nope, not glazed or jelly-filled....this woman spotted a horse-and-buggy doing doughnuts in a snow-covered parking lot near Ashland, Ohio. Even the Amish enjoy playing in the snow! Click here to see the 19-second video.
Mennonite Heritage Village: Read about this interesting place in Manitoba for those interested in prairie Mennonite history! Click here.
