A recent read
I've done a little more reading in the past month or so (and obviously a little less blogging). This book was in the "new" section of the library, and though it is a cookbook with recipes, it is a fascinating read with quite a bit of insight into the present day Amish lifestyle. My parents were just here visiting (another factor in blog absence) and brought some fresh asparagus and rhubarb from their garden. We made one batch of the asparagus potato soup out of this book, and liked it so much we made it again and doubled it. Mmmm. I'm planning to try out the recipe for rhubarb bars tomorrow, as we need to bring a dessert to a get-together. There are several recipes that look good and I hope to try out as many as possible before returning it to the library!
