I have entered this giveaway & I am really excited about it. The Amish-Country Cookbook is this week's giveaway at Recipe Lion. The cookbook in the giveaway is volume 1 of 4 from Das Dutchman Essenhaus in Middlebury. This is one of my favorite Amish restaurants, along with Amish Acres in Nappanee. We usually eat family style. Afterwards we hit the bakery to take some of the pie we had for dessert home. I love their Pot Pie noodles. My grandmother made Pot Pie noodles & these may not live up to hers but are better than my attempt at making Pot Pie noodles. Although, the key to making good Pot Pie whether it's Grandma's or Essenhaus' is boiling them in sausage broth. I'm curious if the Pot Pie recipe is in this volume & if the recipe is similar to our family one. Even if I don't win this contest, I'll have to check out these cookbooks. Good luck to everyone who enters.

I have been so bad about keeping up this blog. I got a head cold a couple of weeks ago & I just haven't felt like doing anything. I hate feeling sick. I just want to sleep but I can't sleep because when I lay down I get clogged up. Hate to take medicine but finally went & got some Aleve D Sinus & Headache. Took one & felt a little better but have taken any since. I haven't had much appetite. Only thing that has been tasting good is Mint M&Ms which I just found at Walgreens last week. Haven't seen them for a while so don't know if they're just out for St. Pat's Day or Easter or if they're always out & I just haven't noticed them since I don't go to Walgreens much.
