Trip To Mishler's and Pleasant View Bakery in Dalton, WI

I had such a fun day to-day! I went to Mishler's Country Store, W5115 Barry Rd, Dalton, WI, 53926. I have been planning to purchase a Nordic Ware covered 1/2 sheet cake pan.  Well, to-day I bought it! I asked the woman checking things out, if she had one of these pans. She said, "we have 3 of them." I thought, big duh for me.  Anyway, I bought some pudding mixes, some breakfast cereals, Clear Jell, and wide mouth plastic lids for my canning jars. I store so many things in them and seem to be losing the original lids. The item I saw this time I want to get next time is a hand-crank blender. Wow! I can retire the Osterizer to under the sink to keep my 1949 Mixmaster company.

Then onto Pleasant View bakery, N9541 Kiefer Rd, Dalton, WI  53926.  The aroma of woodstove baking and baked goods was absolutely intoxicating. I wanted to ask for a tour of the kitchen; I'd love to see what they use for utensils and pans, and see the wonderful ovens. I got 2 loaves of bread, which were still warm on the shelf, and 6 doughnuts.

I saw several buggies on the road and waved to each one. I received waves back from everyone. I made a point to slow down everytime, so I wouldn't scare the horse.

What a wonderful Amish day I had to-day.

Blessings,

Sounds like you had a great time!!! I have a wood cookstove,and you're right..nothing compares to that aroma! I do admit,tho',that I am also very greatful that I have a gas cookstove as well. When it's 70 or 80 * ,I'm glad I don't have to fire the stove!! I do it as more of a hobby,rather than I have to.I use it frequently in the winter. I also have a hand cranked food processor(KIng Kutter)--I like it and use it,but am also am thankful for my kitchenaid one. I guess I like the best of both worlds!!
