Day~Tripping


Today Tim and I went to meet Carolyn and Richard of PA SOY CANDLES. We needed to pick up an order so we drove to Lebanon to their home. Carolyn and Richard are two of the nicest people you could ever meet. We had a tour of their candle shop and learned so much about candle making. I had my camera with me but when we got out of the car I forgot all about my camera. I cannot believe I did that but we are planning on going back and when we do I WILL take pictures. After picking up our candles we headed out to Lancaster. We needed to go to a wholesale place and of course we have to take the back roads! AND I did use the camera....so enjoy these pictures from our Day~Trip.

We stopped at a little roadside Farmer's Market...love this wreath made with Indian Corn..so neat!We found a nice place to have Lunch..http://www.franklinhousetavern.com/ It was a really nice old building. Tim and I enjoyed a nice lunch of Salad and Wine. Tim had a steak salad and I had a Ahi Tuna Ceasar Salad. I almost fainted when the waitress brought me my salad....it was a whole head of romaine lettuce lightly grilled. I never had grilled lettuce but have seen it on The Food Channel...it was SO GOOD!


Tim's Salad. Sorry I can't rotate this picture..it looks like this because of the way I uploaded it..NOT because I had wine with my salad..no I wasn't standing on my head when I took the picture but you may have to stand on your head to view it..sorry!
Our view during Lunch.Our view while waiting for our desserts!

DID someone say DESSERT? When we go out and there is Tiramisu on the dessert menu we HAVE to get it. We are hoping to have our own show on The Food Channel..Tiramisu Road Tasted! We love Tiramisu! The waitress had the nerve to ask us if we were going to share one! No WAY! This was one of the best we ever had...it was SO GOOD. I was so busy eating it that I almost forgot to take a picture of it. It was a long day but a fun day. We both needed a day away and we picked a perfect day weather wise...lots of rain and maybe some snow headed our way starting Thursday into the weekend. Sure hope the bad weather doesn't keep our customers away from The Brickhouse.
Thank you for stopping by our blog...stop by again and also make sure you stop by The Brickhouse, we would love to meet you.

What a fun trip! I love that you got some pics of the Amish in their everyday lives. We never would see that down here in Texas. I'm sure ya'll see that all the time.

Shame on you for not getting photos of the candle process! Just kiddin' - but at least you got the tiramisu (and the wine). Those salads look luscious. I've never had grilled lettuc, but I'll have to check that out now! Thanks for sharing your lunch with us - I hope you ate enough for us all- take care & wrap up warm!

Oh, what a nice trip..we've been to Lancaster a few times, although we live 6 &1/2 hrs away. My sister and her family are very good friends with the Lapps of Lapp Valley Farms. So every time we go, we get to do our wholesale shopping and have dinner with them at their farm!!! Oh yeah..and save room for the homemade ice cream!!!

I love Amish Country! I haven't been through Lancaster area, but we have loads of Amish farm country here in Ohio.
Looks like a great road trip!

Sounds like you two had a great day. Some of the pictures could have been taken right around your own home.
I was thinking about you at Rhinebeck. Hope to stop by again very soon.
