Time for our weekly whirl through the blogosphere in search of everything and anything Amish or otherwise Plain.
CORN CASSEROLE: You'll be hearing much more from Patricia's Patchwork who will fill in with some wonderful Amish recipes while I am away after our daughter arrives. But, for now, I'm showcasing a vintage recipe of hers since it is "corn season" in some many places now. The recipe calls for canned corn, but I am sure you can use fresh also this time of year. A hearty corn casserole is food bliss as far as I am concerned. Click here for the recipe.
HOLMES HISTORY: Bruce Stambaugh explores a road in Holmes County that has been around since the area was first settled. He enjoys the journey from the relative comfort of a van, but it still gives you a sense of what this terrain must have been like during far less hospitable times. Next time I am up in Holmes, I am going to check out this route...check it out here!
SIMPLE SUMMER MEALS: Gina at the Home Joys blog has been discussing simple summer meals, check out her menu and the discussion here!
MORNING IN AMISH COUNTRY: Tom Nye shares some gorgeous photos of sunrise in Amish Country (SIGH, I used to be much, much more of a morning person that I am as I get older....I haven't intentionally seen a sunrise in a long time)...anyway, click here.
GRANDMA'S BAKED BEANS? Okay, this isn't Amish, but it was still an interesting post from Backroads Traveller Tom, has anyone heard of these beans before? I bet these are some good beans when they have a backstory like that. I've heard of Bush's baked beans, but Grandma's is not a brand I am familiar with. Read more here.
MORE MACARONI SALAD: The Sweet Little Bluebird site is sharing a recipe this week for homemade macaroni salad. We've posted a lot of mac salad recipes this summer but,really,what's one more? Click here to see it.
MEEMAW ON THE ROAD: Check out Meemaw's road trip now.....good thing I don't know exactly where she is, because she'd had have some uninvited guests for dinner, the vacation food looks amazing! Click here.
