SHORT VISITS

Regular readers of Elizabeth Coblentz's Amish Cook newspaper column may have read this past week about her 2-year-old granddaughter Verena being rushed to the hospital for dehydration treatment on August 27. On my August 31 visit, she appeared to have recovered - everything appeared to be fine. Verena was bouncing and babbling like a typical two-year-old. On my most recent visit to Elizabeth's, her house was filled with the rambunctious play of half a dozen of her pint-sized, toddler-age grandchildren. Elizabeth and her daughters were canning homemade salsa and storing food for the long winter that lay ahead. We had a wonderful visit, as always too short - especially during this busy season.

NEWSPAPER UPDATE

A warm welcome to the Plymouth Daily Pilot in Plymouth, Indiana. They have become the newest paper to add their Amish Cook to their weekly line-up. If you would like to see Elizabeth's weekly column, entitled "The Amish Cook", in your daily paper, please contact your local editor.

SHOPPE TALK

For those who may have tried to order something, a technical glitch took down The Amish Cook Shoppe over the holiday weekend. While on the shopping subject, a whole new array of items have been added to the store. Additional hand-crafted items from a woodshop tucked away in the rolling farm fields near Elizabeth are now offered in Shoppe. Also, for those of you who want holiday recipes, Oasis Newsfeatures has re-printed copies of Elizabeth's 1993 book: An Amish Christmas. It's actually a "mini-book", 40 pages featuring stories and recipes from the holidays in Indiana's Amish country.

NEW THIS WEEK

Also new to the site this week: a new recipe of the month and a collection of zucchini delights from Elizabeth, new photos in the scrapbook section, and some more reader questions answered.
