Le Menu

This week was undeniably colder, and the crisp autumn air is beginning to harden into winter.  Time for soup!
 
READY FOR THE COOK:
 
AMERICAN SOUP MIX.  This soup mix includes your choice of extra mushrooms, beef or goat, and a double top selection of gourmet beans, grains and spices that are ready to combine in a pot with a prescribed amount of water.  (OK we'll tell you: cranberry beans, soldier beans, pinto beans, white wheat, and lundberg's wehini rice - would you believe Colorado is not good rice country? - and a seasoning mix of garlic sprouts, mushrooms, sea salt and pepper)
WILD SOUP MIX.  This is an interesting and refreshing soup, facinating and designed against winter fever (sometimes mistaken as the flu).  Includes cottonwood, willow, pine needles, thistle root, rose hips, wheat and barley, with salt and pepper. 
CARNIVORE'S TREAT: A cut of meat you have not tried or is your favorite (you get to choose) with pine needles and willow and a recipe for your marinade.
