Tomato Barley & Vegetable Soup – There's nothing like starting a soup with a gorgeous hunk of pastured beef (Arrowpoint Cattle Co., Nathrop, CO). Browned and braised, it creates the stock and the beefy chunks you'll find backing up the San Luis Valley purple barley (Del Norte), the fresh pulled carrots (Crestone), the onions (Olathe) and mushrooms (Alamosa) that round out this wholesome and hearty meal.

Thai Pork Basil Quinoa – The deliciousness of this dish is almost indescribable. But, it's got to stem from the beautifulness of the pork itself: Pasture-raised Berkshire (Wellington, CO) has a delicate, not blunt, flavor. We toss that ground pork with fresh basil (Crestone) and serve it over organic quinoa from the San Luis Valley (Mosca, CO). Yum!

SANDWICHES AND OTHER SIMPLE MEALS
Smoked Trout Stuffed Baked Potato –.Our trout are raised right here in the Arkansas Valley (CCI, Buena Vista) then they're filleted and smoked for an incomparable flavor. They're fantastic against the solid background of an organic russet potato (Mosca, CO) and a bit of sour cream and cheese.

Egg Salad Sandwich -- What do you get when you "sandwich" Ploughboy, Inc. classic egg salad between two slices of fresh-from-the-oven Salida Bread Co. bread? -- Perfection!

High Rockies Cubano Panini– When you're in Cuba you might expect ham, but here in the Rockies, of course, it's beef. In this case a beautiful, all natural summer sausage from the Salazars (Manassa). We load it and the traditional accompaniments: swiss cheese (Olathe), bread and butter pickles (Manzanola) and Molicious Mustard (New Castle) onto freshly baked Salida Bread Co. bread (Salida). Served with Chip Peddler Chips (Durango, CO) or organic apple slices (Hotchkiss, CO)
Not Your Grandma's Roast Beef Sandwich – Yes, we start with the kind of beef your Grandma probably ate: all -natural, pasture-raised and finished for an authentic flavor (Arrowpoint Cattle Co., Nathrop). And, it's on hand-made bread that's baked right in our kitchen every day (Salida Bread Co., Salida). And, it's even got all-natural cheese made at a small family dairy (Olathe, CO), just like Grandma's would have had. But, then we top it off with Zuke's pickled cabbage with caraway (Boulder, CO) -- zippy and zingy and Oh So Good. So, probably not like Grandma's -- unless, of course, you called her "Bubbe." Served with Chip Peddler Chips (Durango, CO) or organic apple slices (Hotchkiss, CO)
Classic Egg Salad – we start with an all-natural egg from the free-roaming, happy chickens at Day Spring Farm (Olathe, CO) and don't add a lot: just a few key enhancements like a touch of Molicious Mustard (New Castle, CO) and taste of Shirley Ann's bread and butter pickles (Manzanola). Why mess with success?!

State Fair Potato Salad – Potato salad like your Grandma made. Great Colorado potatoes (organic from White Mt. Farm, Mosca) cooked to just the right tenderness, tossed with some mayo and, oh yeah, Shirley Ann's bread and butter pickles (Manzanola, CO) and a bit of Molicious mustard (New Castle, CO)
