It's been so long since I've had a chance to write anything that I needed to look back to my FB posts and pictures to jog my memory as to what I wanted to tell you! Good grief.....but life just keeps on going and the fun continues!

Ellen is missing Aaron's Acres camp this year. She is now too old to attend their activities =( Last Thursday afternoon the camp did their Alex Lemonade fundraiser at the Lancaster Shopping Center, one of Ellen's favorite things they did at camp. I often went to get a cup of lemonade and give a donation. We decided to do it again even though she isn't a camper. It was a very hot afternoon so we decided to visit a special shop first.....
I asked them what they wanted for dinner. Breakfast for dinner is what they wanted. So I asked, do they want pancakes? NO, they wanted Eggs Goldenrod. But we had that just a few weeks ago.....that didn't matter. It's their favorite and they wanted it again =)
This is a dish my mom adapted from a recipe in the Mennonite cookbook. We loved it growing up. My kids all loved it too. Now the grandkids do too!
Here's the short version of this recipe.....make toast and tear it into medium pieces, make a white sauce, hard boil eggs, separate the yolks and whites, chop the whites and put into the white sauce, put the sauce on top of toast, smash the yolks and place on top of the white sauce. Easy!

So the kids asked me in the morning what we were gong to do that day. I thought about it and suggested going to Choo Choo Barn in Strasburg. They were all for that!
