Only in York County

The best way to spend a spring Saturday

You probably know by now that I love yard sales, and of course I recognize that it’s almost a must-do on spring and summer weekends in York County.

So this morning, we loaded the whole family into the car and headed over to some neighborhoods in Manchester Township for a couple of community yard sales.

Best find went to my mom, who got a brand-new summer purse for $2. Daughter Sarah got a 50-cent T-shirt with a panda on it from the Washington Zoo. My husband, Chris, got a book from a “free” box. Lunch, for my mom and me, was a yummy, freshly grilled hot dog (75 cents!) from one yard-saler.

And guess what I got? Something for the blog!

It’s “A Taste of Pennsylvnia Recipe Book” published by the Pennsylvania Dept. of Agriculture and it only cost a quarter!

Be on the lookout for recipes from it in the coming days, including some more great ways to use local fresh fruit.

Anyone else have good yard-sale finds or news of coming sales to report? Comment and let me know!
