County Fair

I am not sure why I am writing this an an entry in the blog but I just felt like it, I guess.

I am entering the local county fair and I am nervous about it. The Fair is only a little over a month away. I know alot of the Amish women down here are entering and it makes me nervous. They bake,can,quilt and sew all of the time. I just do it to eat healthier and save money. The Amish are fantastic bakers and preserve makers. I have tried many of their dishes and boy they are fantastic. They are among the kindest people I have ever met. They are always willing to share a tip here or make a suggestion there about anything I have ever asked them. They even share their recipes with me from time to time.

I am planning on entering the following items.

1) Bread and Butter Pickles

2) Watermelon Preserves

3) Pecan Pie or Sweet Potato Pie

4) Sweet Potato Bread

Any of ya’ll have any ideas please let me know. I want to try and narrow down my list to just 2 or 3 items to enter. Suggestions are always welcome. The feed back would be terrific.

See ya’ll soon
