The Amish Cook: Hunting season means lots of activity for family

Gun season opens today for the deer hunters, which meant lots of activity in this household. Daughter Susan went hunting with her friend Mose. It was the first time she had ever gone hunting. Even Elizabeth didn’t have to work at the factory, which closed because of opening day of deer season. Her friend Timothy went hunting, but she decided to stay home to get caught up on things. Being gone five days a week every week, she enjoys a day off. It is nice to have her home today; otherwise I would be here alone. Nice to have someone to visit with while you work.

My husband, Joe, is working and the six youngest are in school. Timothy was lucky to get a deer on Saturday and again this morning. We heard a lot of gunshots this morning, so there are probably some more lucky hunters. Elizabeth and I saw some deer across the road in the field. They were busy eating in the cornfields and didn’t seem concerned about the surrounding gunshots.

Last Friday, daughter Loretta went with me to help with the submarine sandwich drive. There wasn’t any school, because the teachers are having meetings. A lot of people showed up to help make the subs. A total of 9,000 were made that day. It had one shift of people until 1 or 2 p.m. and then the next shift came in to do the rest. It made it easier on everyone to trade off. Before we started putting the subs together, 9,000 sandwich bags each of diced green onions, diced peppers and diced lettuce were filled to go with each sub. They made two different kinds of subs. One was a chicken and the other a club. There were eight lines of people filling the baggies with about eight people in each line. Then there were a lot of people keeping things on the table for each line. One line at a time stopped to take a break. They had all kinds of sweet treats there such as whoopee pies, cinnamon rolls, all kinds of cookies and bars, and coffee and hot chocolate to drink as a reward for the workers.

Around noon, everyone stopped to have lunch. Most of the lunch was all brought in by the workers. All kinds of casseroles, salads, fruits, puddings and pies were served. I brought some subs home for our supper, but they were also delivered the next day to all of the Amish homes in the area. A donation was taken for the subs and proceeds will go to a family in our church district to help with medical expenses. It was an enjoyable day to help out and visit. Loretta had to quit a little earlier. Standing in the same spot too long really wore her out with wearing the braces. I was even glad to prop my feet up after I came home. I imagine the ones that held the sub drive at their house were really tired. Sunday we attended church services at the parents of Susan’s friend Mose. They live 21 miles from here. This was the first time we had met Mose’s parents. We appreciated their hospitality. Mose drives 21 miles back and forth with his horse and buggy almost every weekend to see Susan. It is almost a two-hour drive, depending on the horse. We then had a pizza, cake and ice cream supper at Jacob’s house in honor of his 40th birthday. His birthday was Nov. 1.
