Retired Teacher's Road Trip to Colorado ~Here's What We Had to Eat

Don't judge me...
I did take photos of some of the more 
impressive meals we ate while traveling.
After our tour of the Anheuser Busch Brewery,
hubby and I shared this awesome burger,
topped with mushrooms and carmelized onions.
Their restuarant is called the Biergarten.

And then, after spending the afternoon and evening at
The New West Fest,
we finally found a place to stay. After checking in,
we walked to a nearby Bar & Grill to share this
huge platter of Loaded Chicken Nachos.

We enjoyed Continnental Breakfast in all of the hotels,
however, this was my favorite.
Cinnamon Swirl Raisin Bread with Cream Cheese.

So far, we had eaten burgers & fries,
nachos and hotel scrambled eggs...
I just wanted some lettuce.
In Boulder, at the West Flanders Brew House,
this salad with pears, beets, walnuts, and feta was perfect.

Hubby was in the mood for pizza.

By the next day, hubby was also on the lettuce bandwagon.
Now, in Denver, we ate at the Black-eyed Pea.
This was his Asian Salad with Grilled Shrimp.

I ordered the salad with Pears, Pecans and Feta.
I think it is my new favorite.

Then before we knew it, 
our vacation time was coming to an end.
In Sterling, Colorado, the hotel staff recommended this brewhouse.


We shared the Brisket Nachos.
Chips with Beer Braised Brisket,
Queso Blanco, Cheese, Fried Onions,
and Pickled Cherry Peppers.
It came with a side of horseradish sour cream.
It was so tasty...but the portion was too big for two!

Another day spent in the car,
our last stop for a late lunch/early dinner was at the
We shared the Prime Rib Sandwich.
It was so very tender!

We spent the evening checking out the sites
in Valentine and lounging around
in the hotel.
We walked back over to the Peppermill.
(If you grew up in a ranching community,
you know all about this delicacy.)

That's right...
we just had to do it.
It was a great way to end our 
time vacationing in the Old West.

Home again, Home again,
Jiggity Jog.
After nine days of eating in
hotels, restaurants,
brew houses,
and steakhouses,
I was ready to eat a meal at home.
Hubby's Grilled Chicken
Pasta with homemade Pesto
Green Salad with strawberries and Red Onion.

There's no place like home!

Take care,
~Natalie
