Amish Ladies Cookbook- Snacks & light lunches
This cookbook is all about lunchtime and daytime snacks, especially for busy families. Hilda Hoflader, a wonderful Amish woman, created these based on fixing lunches for her family that were out on the farm and needed nourishment! You may not be on a farm or tending to fields, but it is always nice to have a variety of lunch recipes available. Especially those that are easy to fix, and can last while life throws curve balls throughout the day. Here is what she wrote:
"The lunches that a lady has to prepare for der herren in the field need to be adequate for the men who are putting in a hard day's work.
They also need to be lunches that can survive the trip to the field as der kinder get distracted by chasing a frog along a fencerow or the dog kicks up a rabbit that der kinder feel obligated to join on finding.
It can be a trial, figuring out what those urchins are going to be doing when they should be tending to the chore of carrying those lunches."
