My friend Maegan came to New Jersey for a ten day visit.
We had a wonderful time, but the highlight of the trip was Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The farmland was so pretty and green. The people were kind and friendly. We ate at two different Amish restaurants. Both were wonderful. Shoo-fly pie is delicious!
We did lots of shopping at Kitchen Kettle Village. They have a brilliant marketing strategy. There are signs everywhere telling you the story of the buildings and the people who make the items you’re purchasing. The quilt shop? They sell stuffed animals and Christmas ornaments made from remnants of salvaged antique quilts by two sisters. The jam and jelly shop? You can see the Amish women making the jelly and relish in the open kitchen. Oh, and you can sample absolutely everything. From sweet potato butter to Danson plum jam it was delicious! And they ship all over the US.
