Amish country is by far one of the prettiest places I have been. A ride through the country brings a sense of calm with the views of beautiful homesteads complete with old (sometimes rustic) homes, perfectly groomed farmland, and large barns. Watching the Amish working in their fields and riding in their horse and buggies or on their bikes creates an appreciation for all their hard work and sacrifices.
Everyone loves a great meal. The smells and taste of our favorite food can be an amazing indulgence. Having two boys ages 16 and 12, and a husband who loves his meat, we have long since passed the stage where a “happy meal” makes them happy. Many times after a nice sit-down meal, our boys will finish their meal only to follow with “I am still hungry” or just simply snatching a bite or two off their sister’s plate when she is not looking! Because of this great teen phenomenon, sometimes, we willingly sacrifice quality for quantity. We may not have the best-tasting food but at least my guys can get filled up!
