Looking up at the balloon above us
I was so excited that I was able to get some great pictures of it! Have you ever been in a hot air balloon? Would you ever? I think I would be scared but it’s something on my list of things that I would like to do. I think it would be such an incredible experience not to mention the views! Heavenly!
Our last stop on our trip to Lancaster was to the Plain & Fancy Farm Restaurant . I was super excited about this! The manager graciously invited us to enjoy dinner! Mike and I are HUGE fans of this place! I’m telling you, if you haven’t tried this restaurant you are seriously missing out! You don’t know what you are missing until you try it.

Sign explaining the dining options
There are two dining options at the Plain and Fancy Restaurant. For $19.95, you can enjoy the Farm Feast where if you look above, it says all of the food that you can enjoy. It’s a huge selection of food. It is served family style so you are sitting with other people that you might not know. If you prefer to eat privately with your own party, you can choose to eat in the Ala Carte dining, which is what Mike and I did. One day we will do the Farm Feast. I have to wait until my stomach issues are resolved because there are some items on that menu that I cannot enjoy now. I’m hoping to try it one day soon!
The restaurant also has a huge country store attached to it, which is great to browse around if you are waiting for a table.

Plain and Fancy!
Mike and I started off our meal with their Iced Raisin bread.
Heavenly iced raisin bread!
If you visit the blog for the Plain and Fancy farm, they have the iced raisin bread recipe listed for you to make at home! I know I am definitely going to try my hand at making this bread sometime soon. It’s delicious!
Rolls with apple butter
Your meal comes with the softest rolls and apple butter. Let me tell you about this apple butter, it is incredible! It’s not butter at all. It’s strictly made from apples. I love it so much!
For my meal, I decided to order the open faced turkey platter.

My second side was brown buttered noodles
Most of the meals come with your choice of two sides. I completely forgot to take a picture of Mike’s meal but he got their fried chicken which is to die for! It’s not greasy at all. The breading is perfectly crisp and filled with flavor. The chicken on the inside is moist and juicy and pure white meat. It’s a great choice. He chose the same sides that I had.
We both decided to get dessert.

My apple crisp
I didn’t try Mike’s dessert but he said he really enjoyed it. My apple crisp was the best apple crisp I ever had! It had the perfect amount of apple and cinnamon flavor. I could have easily ate another helping of it.
I told you that I was in love with the apple butter. I couldn’t leave the store without it. So I purchased a jar.
The BEST apple butter!
I cannot wait to open this jar and start using it! I think Thanksgiving will be the perfect time to get use out of this apple butter!
Thank you so much, Jacklyn for allowing us to enjoy the Plain and Fancy! It’s such an incredible restaurant. I should also mention that the restaurant is on a farm that is filled with lots of Amish culture activities and has a hotel right on the premises. It’s a wonderful place to take the entire family and experience the Amish. I know that we will most definitely be back sometime soon. The restaurant is that good. Have you ever experienced the Amish culture or had Amish food?
I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!
