  1. Hi Darla, so nice to meet you. Your blog name drew me to your page from Notsofancynancy – thanks Nancy! – And as I read through some of your articles I cannot think of anyone I would like to spend my evening cuppa with (cuppa is slang for cup of tea for the Amish). I look forward to visiting your page often…blessings! Patty

    • Hi, Patty — What a nice thing to say. Thank you. Do you live near the Amish? I visited the Amish in Pennsylvania one year with my son’s eighth grade class. It was their U.S. history tour and the school’s principal was friends with an Amish family. The lunch we had at a restaurant there was the best-tasting food I’ve ever eaten. I’ll be sure to visit your blog and see what you’re thinking!

      • We are not in a community with many Amish, but more and more are moving away from the farm lands. But we often visit the Lancaster area that are mainly Amish farms and businesses. Such a faithful people. Where did you visit? The restaurants owned by the Amish do have the best home cooked meals. God bless! Patty

        • Coming from California, we saw the major historic sites in Williamsburg, Jamestown, Richmond, Charlottesville, D.C., Annapolis, Gettysburg, Lancaster (Amish), and Philadelphia. We arrived at the end of February, during that crazy winter of 2003 (the trip had been booked for months), 1-1/2 years after 9/11 and three weeks before the invasion of Iraq.

          • I am sure you all had a blast. Gettysburg is our favorite local destination when planning a weekend getaway, we used to joke that when we retire we would move there and become guides – and require no training. Although my husband is retired now, we are still here in North Central PA! 🙂 Was it the Good and Plenty or Hershey Farms that you visited while in Lancaster? Just curious, they have the best home cooked meals.

            • I don’t recall the farm’s name. I just remember the restaurant had long tables and benches. They handed the trays and bowls to the persons at the first seats and we passed it down the tables to each other. Loved it.

              • It sounds like it good be either one, although I am sure there are a few more with that setting. The vegetables are all grown locally for the restaurants. Our country has so many wonderful blessings from east to west and north and south. 😉 Blessings – Patty
