Happy Mother’s Day: Yesterday, Tomorrow, All Year Long...

By the time you read this, Mother’s Day will be past for this year; but no, it’s never too late to show appreciation to your mother, or someone who is an influence in your life. Nothing could make a mother happier than to receive a phone call simply to say hello and I Love You, or a special card in the mail, a single rose, or even a heart touching dandelion bouquet. Amish Fried Chicken in Ohio My grandchildren recently went for a walk in the woods and brought back a fragrant lilac bouquet and their comment was, “Grammy, we knew you would like our flowers, we love you,” and then a hug and a kiss to go along with that. Now this is a gift all the money in the world can’t buy, simply precious! There is hardly a day that goes by that I don’t think of my own mother and all of the precious memories I carry. Some of the seemingly ordinary ones are also the most profound; like sitting underneath the cherry tree snapping beans or shelling peas while she shared with me stories of her growing up years. We would laugh together at some of the tricks she and her sister would play on each other, and their other siblings. I remember the patience she had when I was just learning to sew with the old fashioned treadle sewing machine, or my first attempt at making noodles or dinner rolls. She always had respect for my thoughts and ideas and we had a lot of fun working together, no matter what the task. She was my mother first and foremost and then became my best friend. And no matter what, I knew there was always love. So make every day Mother’s Day, simply a kind word or good deed won’t cost you a dime, but will means millions to those that receive them, and they also make great memories!

Mt. Hope Auction Report

Rumors fly, we all know, but this one’s true. There ARE The best Amish Fried Chicken in Ohiomushrooms to be found in Mt. Hope. You won’t have to fight the brush and brambles to find these though. Just show up on a Wednesday morning during “mushroom season” and take in the sights! Literally hundreds of plates of mushrooms all lined up waiting to be sold. The first plates appeared on April 30th, 46 plates to be exact. The first five plates sold for $100 apiece to an elderly man who gave them to his children for a mushroom fry. The next lot of 8 plates went for $115 per plate and all went to one lady. The cheapest plate that day went for $55. The word was out and the next Wednesday, May 7th, people came from everywhere to at least get a look at the bounty before them; there was a plenty to look at, with 309 plates crowding the tables.
Supply and demand dictated the price this week, with the highest Delicious Amish Fried Chicken Recipe in Ohioplate, a full pound of beautiful morels, going for a paltry $45. On the low end they went for $12.50 a plate, these were not as nice, and the plates not as full, but there were a lot of happy people enjoying mushroom sandwiches that evening. Again, the word was out, and people came from all over to buy some nice cheap mushrooms; but, surprise, surprise, there weren’t nearly as many mushrooms this week, only 234 plates and they went for a higher price. The nice full plates were going for $70 and a few plates that had only four went for $10. But alas, all good things must come to an end, and soon mushroom season will be over and these tasty morels will be replaced by other spring delicacies. Asparagus and rhubarb are just around the corner!
