A Fine Day To Be In Millersburg, Ohio

If you're in the Millersburg area, hop in the car quick:
MILLERSBURG, Ohio (AP) — According to record keepers, the world's biggest buffet happened in Las Vegas. The record may not stay there, though.

Restaurants, bakeries and family cooks in the Amish region of northeastern Ohio are uniting Saturday to challenge the mark of 510 buffet dishes served last year at the Las Vegas Hilton.

Organizers plan three two-hour sittings for 1,000 people each at $11 apiece at the Amish Flea Market. Proceeds will help feed the needy.

The nearly 600 promised dishes include Hungarian sauerkraut soup, corn casserole, garlic mashed potatoes and sweet potato souffle.

"We might not have glitz and glamour, but we know how to cook," said Kurt Kleidon, who is helping organize the event.
Yes, it's a little odd to think of Amish going after world records, but who's gonna question it when there's sauerkraut soup and sweet potato souffle on the table?
