{meaty monday : farm-to-table mini sliders}

19 May


i am so blessed. i need to keep myself in check whenever i feel that i am anything otherwise.  

i live in this amazing place where i have access to amazing locally grown and produced food – including quality, pasture-raised, grass-fed, fresh beef.  now – some of you may be shaking your head at that word, reading it here on this ol’ blog – food and foto.  you’re probably like, “wait a second -i thought she was like, vegan or something!?  doesn’t she usually do meatless mondays?!” well, yes – yes i do.  and yes, for about four months once – i was vegan.

but dude, i’m not anything – i’m everything. and right now i’m really enjoying eating lots of grass-fed beef, butter, cheese, and dairy.  i can’t seem to get enough of it. i feel very blessed to have regular access to grass-fed beef products. have you ever had the pleasure of enjoying grass-fed beef?!  it simply doesn’t compare… it is just amazing!

while at my personal favourite market, i picked up some grass-fed beef produced from a local ranch where i live and was inspired to create these adorable mini-sliders.  nothing special about them, really – other than the fact that this meal is basically farm-to-table!  i just wanted to share the pictures and rave about how happy and grateful i am that i live in a place that values the ethical treatment of animals and provides availability of these great quality products to an equally-compassionate and educated foodie like myself! 😀


{grass-fed} farm-to-table mini sliders…


mini butter rolls, cippolini onions, tomato, grass-fed cheddar, avocado, red leaf lettuce, grass-fed beef…


stack it up… {everything on this plate is colorado-grown local and organic!}


pile on the {medium-well} burger patties… consume immediately.


i served mine with some english-cucumber chips… and devoured them very quickly, effortlessly, and deliciously… nom nom!

and for the record – i don’t believe in “diets” of any kind.  i eat organically, locally, seasonally, ethically… and above all – intuitively.

    That made me hungry! Although it always seems like meal time. Wait until I bring you to Sweet Coloradough, in Glenwood Springs. Homemade donuts and breads!
