    Coffee soup

    Erik, I’m not sure if the coffee soup is the same thing that my Mennonite aunt calls coffee soup, but hers is cookies broken-up in a bowl topped with coffee with cream and sugar. It is pretty yummy, actually!!!

    Coffee soup

    I used to work with someone in Lancaster County who had his coffee soup every morning. For him, it was a large mug of coffee with raisin bread chunks soaking in it, eaten with a spoon.

        Bring your warm clothes and boots!

        Erik, even though the calendar says Spring, we are dealing with our first real snow. It’s been snowing since yesterday morning and the forecast says up to 10” more coming by evening. I understand next week is still going to be pretty chilly. Keep warm and welcome to PA!

    4am wow that is early. The must go to bed at sunset. Coffee soup doesn’t sound good to me. I don’t like mushy things to eat. LOL

    Coffee Soup

    One of my Mennonite (formerly Amish) friends in Holmes County enjoys coffee soup make with black coffee and Saltine crackers. No thanks. 😀 I’ll have some graham cracker pudding though. 🙂

    Lovina’s early morning schedule reminds me of conversations I’ve had with Amish of the Elkhart/Lagrange settlement who work in RV factories in that area. Several told me they like having to go to be at work by 4 a.m. because then they get off work in early afternoon, can go home, be with their families and work on their farmsteads the rest of the day.

    Coffee Soup

    I was raised in a Pennsylvania German/Brethren home. We had bread soup, sometimes during the week, often on a Sunday morning before church. My grandmother would make hers in an emptied jelly jar, break her toast up into the jar, add coffee and milk. She would swish it around to clean up the remaining jelly in the glass. (As she would say, that way she didn’t have to use sugar.)

    Early rising

    Make the lunches the night before. Broken sleep leads to headaches. And yes the time change is awful.
