Saturday's day trip
My daughter and I took a little trip to the Dutch Bakery in Tipton, MO Saturday. It was a fun afternoon drive. We actually went about 15 miles past Tipton to Lehman's at Versailles for lunch. Lehman's is a Mennonite cafe with food that is simple but freshly made and is Oh. So. Good. They also have fresh homemade bread, cinnamon bread, pies, cookies and other treats for sale. I left with a loaf of regular bread and a loaf of cinnamon bread. We headed back to Tipton and to the Dutch Bakery where I bought more goodies.
I couldn't turn down the yummy Caramel Pecan Cinnamon Rolls or the iced Cinnamon Rolls or another loaf of bread! The other loaves seen in the photo are from Lehman's. I also bought a bag of oats, a jar of Green Tomato Relish, and some chicken base that I use in my chicken noodle soups and turkey gravy, some cheese and German bologna for sandwiches. Because I was reasonably certain that after eating a big lunch, I wouldn't be cooking dinner and it would be a sandwich night! I also bought a Dutch letter which is an almond paste filled pastry shaped in the letters L, O, V, E, S that they sell. I'd never tried them before and they were very good. You're probably wondering how we could possibly eat all this? I will freeze some of these and hope they taste just as fresh later.
Finally, I bought a bottle of V&V, an all natural herbal supplement. While wheeling down the aisles, I spotted a woman about my age looking at a brochure and, nosy person that I am, stopped to see what was so interesting. We started chatting and both of us admitted that we could both use a little vim and vigor at our age, and we both decided that the 14 herbs and spices in a bottle of vinegar were pretty harmless sounding and decided to each buy a bottle and give it a try! After all the sweets I had just loaded in my cart, the fact that the brochure says, besides all the health benefits you get from drinking V&V, that you might lose weight was the clencher! I'll let you know if it works.
We felt a little jolt here in mid-Missouri from the earthquake in Oklahoma Saturday night. Anyone else here in MO or neighboring states feel it?
Until next time...
