This was a no cooking week.
Zero. Zilch. Nothin'.
It was Vacation Bible School week. If you've ever been involved with VBS, you know it's exhausting, exhilarating, hot and wonderful all at the same time.
And if you've ever been a VBS director, you know why I haven't seen the inside of my kitchen for more days than I like to think about!
But I did get my copy of "Cooking and Such" magazine in the mail!
Published quarterly, "Cooking and Such: adventures in Plain Living," is one of Sherry Gore's many creative outlets. Each issue is chock-full of recipes, stories, quotes, tidbits and beautiful photographs - all having to do with Plain Living (i.e., Amish, Mennonite, etc.)
This summer's issue has some intriguing recipes that I'll try if I ever get back into the kitchen :)
Things like German Potato Pancakes, Tasty Bacon Cheese Fries, Blueberry Watermelon Salad, and - my favorite - Maple Bacon Whoopie Pies. (I can hardly wait to try those!)
Each one of these magazines is a keeper. The magazine's mission is "to provide wholesome, Christian reading as we celebrate God's wondrous gifts of family, food, farming and culture."

Now I know I wasn't the only one playing AWOL from my kitchen last week! Let us know what you were doing...did you go to San Antonio for the RWA conference? Or a trip to visit family? Or were you doing the same-old-same-old?
I'll make a batch of those Maple Bacon Whoopie Pies, and we'll chat!
