The Amish Cook
By: Lovina Eicher
chaperone usually takesnacks for the youth. So wehad a variety of differentsnacks and also coffee and punch.The youth can play basket- ball, volleyball or boardgames. We arrived homeafter midnight which is some-thing we’re not used to doinganymore. We could sleep latethe next morning, though,since it was not a church Sun-day.Sister Susan had her 38th birthday on Saturday, May10. She had us all invited totheir house on Sunday for dinner in honor of her birth-day.Brother Albert, SarahIrene, and six of their childrendrove to Verena and Susan’shouse on Saturday eveningwith horses and buggy. Theystayed until Sunday after-noon. Albert’s moved to thewest end of their communityso they live closer than be-fore, around 15 – 17 milesfrom here now. They madethe trip in 1- 1 /2 hours. Al- bert’s are in the process of building all new buildings sothey have a lot of work ahead.They are renting a houseclose by their new land.Daughter Lovina will be 10on Sunday. She is excited soshe can now start sitting withthe girls in church instead of beside me. It makes them feelso much more mature whenthey don’t have to sit with a parent anymore. It will be achange for me to not have anylittle ones beside me. Joe stillAnother rainy day! It has been rainy all week. We wereable to get all the clothesdried on Monday eventhough there was a shower after the clothes were on thelines. We need to do laundryagain and sure am hoping for a nice day on Friday or Satur-day.Tonight the men from our church district will gather here to practice singing songsfrom the Ausbund, our Ger-man church songbook. It is agood way to get the younger men to learn how to lead allthe songs. I need to makesomething today for a snack to serve to them after thesinging.We are enjoying asparagus,rhubarb, mushrooms and win-ter onions, all of those earlygarden goodies. The dande-lions are over with for another year. Once the flowers comeout the greens become bitter and not so good to eat.Saturday afternoon our vis-itors were sister Liz, Levi,and their four children. Also,their daughter Elizabeth’sspecial friend, Samuel. Wewould have liked to have joined them at my sister’sVerena and Susan’s house for supper but had plans already.We were asked to be chaper-ones for the youth at thecommunity building alongwith our neighbors, Joas andSusan.We left around 6 p.m. to goto the community buildingwhich is around 10 milesfrom here. The parents thathas Kevin beside him for alittle over a year yet. Howfast these years go and theolder I get the more timeseems to fly.Daughter Susan moved her pony Roxie and her colthome. It had been at Timo-thy’s place. It’s always inter-esting to see a frisky little foalrunning in the field. Thehorses and ponies are happyto be out on pasture. Theserains will make the grass keepgrowing.Try this different way of using your asparagus. God bless!
