Time for our weekly whirl through the blogosphere in search of anything and everything Amish or Plain. Have some tasty stops this week, so let's swing into action!
TASTY AMISH PEACH PUDDING: This recipe comes to us from Patricia's Patchwork Quilt website and she adapted the recipe from a cookbook featuring Jamesport, Missouri recipes. Jamesport is one of Missouri's largest Amish communities (I think Webster County is larger) and I'd love to visit there someday! But if I can't visit, I can taste through this peach pudding. Looks and sounds amazing! Click here for the recipe.
PINECRAFT CALENDAR BLOG: Katie Troyer is such a treasure. She is a blogger of Plain descent who travels around Pinecraft on her bicycle...she feeds squirrels, greets new arrivals into town, and is just generally a warm and colorful presence around town. If you see her in Florida's only Amish enclave, flag her down and buy one of her Pinecraft calendars......she keeps a few in her buggy basket, otherwise you can order directly from her. Click here to learn more about the calendar. I might have to order one for 2019!
BLOG SPIN - AMISH SOUR CREAM CORNBREAD: Found this recipe at random and holy cow it is from 2008. That is ANCIENT by blogging standards. The recipe looks tasty, click here to check it out.
AMISH COUNTRY FROM A BRITISH PERSPECTIVE: I enjoyed this blog post about a British family's vacation to Amish country, it took me a time or two to convince myself to jump in and read it but I am glad I did. I really like this post. Yes, he veers into some cliches about the Amish, but I love his dry sense of humor and self-deprecation. This is a good writer. I do find his experiences interesting. I've been to many of the same places he wrote about and I wonder if the British accent might have brought out a friendlier side in people. No one really admonished him for taking photos and I wonder if people heard the British accent and were charmed enough by it that they gave him a pass? What do you think?

AMISH HAM CASSEROLE: This is an interesting recipe, looks good....I'd think you could eat it for breakfast or supper. With a pound of ham in it and some eggs, you won't be lacking for protein! Click here for the recipe.
