Well that would certainly qualify!
In this case though it was steak, lobster, sea scallops, broccoli... and potatoes and beer

Two out of five isn't a very good guess.

blah blah blah... potatoes and beer? you must be part irish, pac. your dinner sounds great!

harry, glad to hear you're on the mend. my wife would love your chook.

wait, that doesn't sound right. lol.

we ate here yesterday: An Authentic Amish Cooking Restaurant near Strasburg in Lancaster County | Katie's Kitchen

the food was OUTSTANDING!

after many years of weekend trips to amish country, we had always been somewhat disappointed with the promises of fresh and local foods prepared simply and honestly. they were never any better than any jersey diner of which we are supremely accustomed.

but katie's amish kitchen rocks! after a fairly long wait, then another long wait after being seated and ordering, we realized that they cook everything fresh, and from scratch.

we started with unbelivably soft, warm dinner rolls and a delicious peanut butter spread. then my boy had fried chicken and sweet potato fries; dw had a grilled chicken sandwich ; and i had the beef and noodles.

dessert was blueberry pie for the wife and i, and a whoopee pie for the boy.

i can't quite describe how fresh and flavourful everything was. the chicken really tasted of chicken, if that makes any sense.

my beef and noodles was kinda like a shredded pot roast over thick, potato linguini in a fantastic brown gravy (as good as my own mother's). and the fried chicken blew away popeyes or kfc on their best day, ever!

there was no talking during dessert. best blueberry pie i've ever had in my life. and my boy managed to wear as much of the whoopee pie as he ate, it was that good that he pounded it into his gob.

we finally found real amish food, the way it is advertised, over and over.

if you are ever in or near lancaster/strasburg pa., go directly to katie's.

You are a family man Tom, the last time H was here we visited an area about 28 miles away where my Dad would take us fishing and then force us to spend an hour picking blue berries from the heather.

Harry--I've cancelled my ticket to come and cook for you while you recover from surgery--obviously, you don't need any help cooking--especially not from a rudimentary cook like myself! Nice job (good thing I wasn't reading DC out on the deck with Harriet on my lap--she'd have been mortified).
