It was time to head out of dodge, so I booked a one-day trip to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. I chose Lancaster because the main event was lunch at an Amish home. Having visited Lancaster many times, my curiosity peaked.

Unfortunately, it rained torrentially that day, and I could not take a photo of the outside of their house. Here is a photo of guest tables in their basement area.

Before we started our meal, there was a moment of prayer which I enjoyed. It helped center me after a long ride from 34th Street and 6th Avenue. It seemed to calm everyone,

On the table were peanut butter fluff, homemade bread, pickled beets, and Chow Chow (pickled vegetables). Everything was homemade.

While not the meal of a lifetime, but it was plain and simple and met my expectations.

Dessert was chocolate cake with vanilla icing, oreo ice cream, shoo-fly pie, and fruit jello with peaches.

For me, lunch at an Amish home was an educational experience, and in that context, enjoyably satiated my curiosity.
