Amish Eats

When it comes to authentic Amish food, all my health guidelines can be tossed out the buggy!

Now you know the real reason I work out 😉 I can feel good about the fact the chicken are raised naturally organic, and the salad bar is piled high with veggies, and I took a glorious food coma nap afterwards.

Chicken, mashed potatoes with 2 kinds of gravy (why decide?), dressing, noodles, roast beef, ham. Then I went back for more noodles and some green beans.

I was over the top full at this point, but couldn’t NOT have dessert:

Apple crisp, fluffy chocolate cake, and bread pudding (which I didn’t care for. It’s 9:30 now and I’m still stuffed. Oh the pain is worth it.

Since we were in Amish country, we stopped by my favorite food stores to sample, wines, cheeses, and jams:
