Q. Do the Amish cook three meals a day every day of the week? With all the housework to do, do you find time to do fun things with friends like crafts?
~ Carolyn Bolton
Yes, we cook three meals a day, every day. Summer months are usually too busy with all the food preservation to do any crafts. Winter months however are filled with fun projects. Sewing quilts, embroidery, beading, crocheting, and plastic canvas creations. There are often drawing and writing contests to enter. For those who really enjoy time in the kitchen, winter months are the perfect time to tweak recipes and maybe come up with some new ones.
