Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able.
Good morning! How’s it going today? We are exploring the area around Lancaster, Pennsylvania right now. After spending the first half of the day doing homeschool, we shopped at an Amish market, had an authentic “Dutch” lunch and stopped into a pizza factory and learned how to make Bavarian-style pretzels. They were the BEST soft pretzels we’ve ever had. The kids especially love soft pretzels and were in LOVE these ones.
We are about an hour from the Hershey chocolate factory tour, but we always seem to lean toward the non-touristy favorite spots in the area. Instead of going through a crowded tour and being shuffled through gift shops and paid attractions – we experienced so much more of the local community by shopping and eating local. We got tiny sugar pumpkins and about 15 pounds of local apples from an Amish orchard for about $11 (the apples are DELICIOUS), visited with the manager of the pretzel shop and watched the baker make a huge batch of pretzel rolls for a local Boy Scout fundraiser.
