Fill them with whatever you like!

* if you are a meat eater, to try the chicken. At $2 per pound, this is a good deal on natural chicken. A bit of wild or conventional spices, some fresh olive oil from California, a few delicious mushrooms… dinner is ready inside an hour or two, and finished inside a minute or two.

* If you are not a meat eater, or even if you are, the President’s favorite this week was the tofu. Denver Tofu, a landmark for nearly a hundred years in Denver, uses imported ingredients from Japan for an authentic taste that can’t be beat.

* Also on the must-try list is the eggs from LaChona Farm of Elbert County. Their kids have been learning lots of good tricks at 4-H on raising chickens and eggs, and it really shows. The brown (and sometimes white) eggs make the very best donuts when you use Maia white wheat.

Finish it off with some organic herbal tea, or fresh squeezed OJ. These oranges are picked Monday in California by Pedro, and delivered to your door Friday by Maia. Can’t be beat. Especially at $1.10 per pound.

~=~=~=~ READY FOR THE COOK ~=~=~=~ Glazed Mushroom sandwiches - - - rehydrated glazed mushrooms are a breeze, and takes about 10 minutes to make with Maia’s farm fresh olive oil and twist of orange. On your favorite bread (ask for bread to be included if you like) with sprouts and your choice of wild or garden herb blends.

Orangeaide - - - this is a favorite around the farm. Combine 1/4 cup water, 1/2 cup orange juice and 1/4 cup lemon juice, with sugar to taste

Roasted Tofu or Chicken - - - Fresh natural goat meat with your choice of natural wild spices or more traditional recipes. Includes mushrooms and fresh oil. How can you g wrong?
Try some herbal tea: this week’s special blends include

* Fruity blend. This one is extraordinarily popular! hibiscus, rose hips, elder berries, raspberry leaves, dandelion root, elm bark. What else do you need?

* Walden Pond blend. Thoughtful, meditiative. A blend of wild and cultivated. Peppermint, pine, hawthorne berries, rosehips, elm bark, and the secret ingredient: cannellini. Weird, but actually it’s good.

* City Park blend. We love Denver’s parks, and this may have actually come from city park! Actually, it’s raised by members, but features some of Denver’s favorite landscaping. It’s actually quite refreshing. Dandelion root, chicory root, elm bark, milk thistle seeds.

* Limon 5-way. Named for Limon’s five highways, we put in five ingredients famed for their benefits to your blood, liver, stomach, heart and mind. Includes dandelion root, milk thistle seeds, elm bark, fresh willow and pine needles.
