Shipshewana


A family favorite place to visit over the years has been the
Amish community of Shipshewana, located just a short drive
from my Mom's house. My Mom, Lynn and I piled into the car
today and made the trip, seeing lots of farmland along the way
and enjoyed the beautiful weather. Of course we stopped at
several of our favorite places including E&S Sales to look at
all of the bulk food and Yoder's Meat & Cheese Company. Both
places have small containers of cheese available for sampling
and we contributed to the local economy by making a few
purchases including several kinds of cheese curds! Yum!
We ended our day in the area by having a late lunch at
Das Dutchman Essenhaus in nearby Middlebury. Another
place my family has been going for years, it's famous for it's
Amish-style food. Especially it's pies, including my favorite,
Old Fasioned Cream! Yum Again! Although our waistlines
may have expanded after today, our wallets didn't shrink too
much as we controlled our shopping urges. A great day
overall!
