A Trip to Lancaster, PA and Amish Baked Oatmeal

Now that my dear friend Connie reminded me that we only have 3 WEEKS until Christmas I feel a little panicky. But like every year, it will all get done....somehow. A few weeks back I went on a little trip to Lancaster County here in Pennsylvania. I took a few pictures but forgot to take so many. My mom and I travel there at least twice a year and usually stay with good friends of ours that own a Bed and Breakfast. We talked so much I forgot to take pictures of her place but here's a link. http://equestrianbnb.com/ We are so blessed that the Lord connected us with these lovely people. It's like coming home every time we visit.


I love all the little Amish farms ~ I guess they really aren't little!

I just love seeing this sweet garden in Strasburg, PA. Note the repeat blooming Irises.


I want to paint something this color!

Dienner's is the place to eat! We eat here a few times every visit....its always delightful.

Below is a copy of Linda's Amish Oatmeal Recipe (from the BnB). I can't tell you how good this is...of course it always taste better when she makes it! Warm hugs and blessings today....Jenn

Jenn- The pictures are wonderful. I to get to visit Lancaster once in a while. My inlaws live a little ways from there. It is so peaceful and lovely. Something out of a storybook. Pa is such a beautiful state. Good luck on the Christmas hustle.
