Amish Cook and the family reunion

The garden is still producing lots of vegetables. Today we made 18 quarts of spaghetti sauce and another 11 quarts of tomato juice. While the girls cut up all the vegetables I sewed a dress and shirt. I still need to put button holes and buttons on the shirt.

Nights still seem empty with Verena and Loretta not home from 3 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. They are still staying those hours with 93-year-old Vivian.

The new fence is up and horses and ponies are having a blast eating all the grass. This makes less chores for the boys since they don’t have to feed hay to the horses morning and evenings. It is also a lot cheaper since the price of hay is still quite high.

The fence and gates were up by 3 p.m. so everyone went home to get cleaned up. My husband Joe and Mose (Susan’s boyfriend) grilled 50 pounds of chicken and also grilled wings to make buffalo hot wings.

Also on the menu for supper was mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, corn, mixed vegetables, cole slaw, sliced tomatoes, bread, Swiss roll bars, cherry pie, peach cobbler, oatmeal cookies, popcorn and ice cream. All the dessert was brought in except the ice cream.

Little Prancer is getting fat from all the green grass. Daughter Susan is taking him for exercise running down the road with her. She has also taught him a few tricks. He listens very well to her. Minnie, his mother, has gone back to her owner. Prancer didn’t seem to mind much and follows his Dad, Tiger, around everywhere in the field. Not having Minnie here to drive and ride has brought a few tears from 9-year-old Lovina. She gets so attached to these ponies. She wants to try and ride Tiger but he is still a little rowdy for her. He isn’t a stallion anymore so he should be settling down soon.
