This morning my DH and I were feeling a little better after battling a flu virus/bronchitis for the past 4 weeks, so we decide to take a drive to Amish country which is only just over an hour away from us. It was a beautiful drive, mild and sunny with snow on the ground. I was up there just before Christmas and got some carrots that were the sweetest carrots I have ever tasted. I bought 10 pounds of them, and for only $1.75. We have been enjoying them every day, so I thought I could pick some more of them up while we were there. Today, I got 20 lbs. of them. Of course I will share some of them with the horses. We had the breakfast buffet at a wonderful Amish restaurant called the Crossroads in Elmira, Ontario. They have fabulous food. The breakfast buffet is absolutely delicious and for only $7.99....all you can eat, and boy did we eat! They had so many different selections from fresh fruits, to pancakes and waffles, eggs, bacon, sausages, biscuits, and lots more. There is a great Quilt shop at the end of the building where the restaurant is, so we had a look around there after breakfast. After that we hit the market and got some needfulls for the pantry, then we headed home. It was a perfect day for a nice drive. We enjoyed it so much, and yes it did make us feel better.
