What was your first thought when you read the title of this post?
(My mind would not have gone to something I'd spread on biscuits or toast.)
Anyway, when we took our second trip to Muskogee to see the Nina and the Pinta we also had lunch at the Amish Country Store for the first time.
Oh. My. Goodness! I'm pretty sure we'd make another trip down there just to eat.
While we were waiting for our order to come to the table I decided to do a little shopping in the store. I looked and looked and looked.
They have lots of wonderful items to purchase - jams, ciders, snacks, candies and cookbooks to name a few.
I was so busy shopping that our thoughtful little waitress came and got me when she served our food. She said she didn't want my plate to get cold. Wasn't that the sweetest thing to do?
AD and I both chose the open faced roast beef sandwich that came with two sides. One of the sides we chose was something called Amish Casserole. That was a new dish to me and I had to ask what it was.
It's sort of like chicken and noodles but not really. The gravy/sauce is some different and there's also corn and peas in the dish. I don't know if they serve it as an entree but I could have eaten a whole plateful of that casserole and been wa-a-a-y happy!
I did ask if the recipe might be in any of the cookbooks that were for sale but unfortunately it isn't. Must be a trade secret, you think?
If anyone knows of a similar recipe I'd sure appreciate you sharing it with me.
After we finished our lunch I went back and picked out several goodies to bring home with us.
F.R.O.G. jam for one. Have you ever heard of or had F.R.O.G. jam? It's a blend of figs, raspberries, orange, ginger and the rest of the ingredients that make it a jam.
And it's mighty tasty! I only bought a small jar because I wasn't sure how well it would go over with my grape-jelly-only-loving husband. But he even admitted that it was pretty good stuff.
I think Son's kiddos will get a kick out of the name too.
I was also intrigued by another jar with the name Traffic Jam on it. Although the one we brought home with us has yet to be opened I'm sure it's a winner too. The list of ingredients includes peaches, strawberries, red raspberries, cherries and cranberries.
Hmmm. Now I'm hungry and I haven't had breakfast yet. I think I'll go fix me some toast.
Enjoy your day, everyone!
