Dinner in an Amish Home with All Things Amish

Last night was our 2nd annual All Things Amish Reunion. The Facebook group ‘All Things Amish’ was co-founded by Sherri Genung and Dianna Reidenbach Bupp several years ago. Attendees were from Kentucky, Florida, Boston, and of course, Ohio. We arrived at the home of an Amish family, Jonas and Betty Yoder, near Charm, Ohio at about 5:30. Lavonne Debois, owner of Amish Heartland Tours, started us off with a quick tour of the beautiful countryside down around Becks Mills, Ohio. After we got back, we had a sit-down, family style meal prepared for us by Betty and her daughter. Oh my, there’s nothing like a good home-cooked Amish meal. We had salad with Betty’s home-made dressing, noodles, mashed potatoes (with butter and gravy), green beans, pan-fried chicken, and roast beef. All the food was passed twice. Nobody ever leaves hungry! For dessert there was chocolate cream pie and fresh strawberry pie. After supper we headed outside and sat around a bon-fire and chatted for quite a long time and took a bunch of pictures of the grounds and the sunset. It was one of those evenings that forever gets burned into your memory. You’ve got to experience Amish Country Ohio!
