Alejandro doesn’t cook much. But when he came home with a stack of burgers from Homestead on Grand Ave in Paonia, CO, he demonstrated some smart grocery shopping skillz. Homestead is a retail space run by six ranching families who raise cattle w/o antibiotics, without added hormones, and without animal by-products to sell their meat. They also provide tips on raising your own free range “feeder beef,” which they will process and butcher for you (if you’re into that).
Sara whipped up a delicious hamburger picnic for us that we ate as the Colorado sun was just setting over the mountains. I put fresh mozzarella and pesto on mine.
