There’s more than one way to take in the beauty of Lancaster County’s rolling hills and farmland. It is not uncommon to see several hot air balloons on our drive to and from the office at this time of year. These balloonists are nearly ready for take-off. What you can’t see in this photo is all the people watching along the side of the road, probably wishing they could hop in the basket too.
Farming with horses is making a come-back in the U.S. and around the world.
Each year, there is a big gathering called Horse Progress Days related to all of the techniques and innovations in this field of interest. People swap stories, share tips, and check out new equipment. There’s also lots of food!
These are a few lovely little scenes that we pass everyday on the way to the office.
Not a bad commute, huh?
A few weeks ago we mentioned a fabulous barbecue sauce that we use in our Quickie Barbecued Chicken recipe. We love this brand of sauces so much that it is time to share them all with you!
The sauces are from the Cortazzo company and are made right here in Lancaster County, PA, by Chef Scott Martino. He has been a chef in some of Lancaster County’s finest restaurants. A few years ago he started his own company, making tomato sauces and barbecue sauces based on his family’s recipes.
Driving down the country roads here in the village of Intercourse, you'll find horse and buggies, meadows full of cows, stands of fresh produce, and homemade signs alluring you toward those quaint gotta-stop-and-see shops.
Here’s a sweet scene we saw in the parking lot of The Good Cooking Store recently.
Don’t ya just wanna keep him?
At The Good Cooking Store we have all kinds of visitors, even this fine-looking fella.
