Saying Goodbye and Yummy Pie!

Hey Everyone!

We lost another great employee yesterday, Tim :( He had to go back to school and will be dearly missed. Living with your fellow employees is something new to me and something I've grown to like. I think it really makes everyone work well together because you know each other strengths and weaknesses and can tell when something's wrong. It will be weird leaving here and having a job that I actually leave. I think I will miss the camaraderie that comes with living and working together as a group but I guess there can only be one Baldpate. On another note it looks like it going to be a beautiful day today and I invite everyone to come relax on our porch and enjoy this fantastic weather while it lasts! Today we have some of my favorite soups, Red Chili and Cream of Mushroom, yummy! To accompany these we also have some very pretty and delicious muffins including our Poppy Seed and Lemon Blueberry. I hope everyone is having a great day and will make it amazing by coming and joining us at The Baldpate.

It's Raining Soups and Muffins!

Hey yall!

It looks like it may storm today but I'm sure it will clear up in a mater of minutes! Im still not used to this crazy weather.Yesterday I went for a walk and it was cold and drizzling, so I brought my umbrella and bundled up. About fifteen minutes later it was sunny and I was left holding both my jackets and umbrella for the rest of my walk! If you would all like to watch the weather change the Baldpate has some spectacular front row seats for you. There's nothing better then running in from the chilly rain and being greeted by the delicious aromas of our hot soups to warm you up. And don't worry we have umbrellas you can borrow if a sunny day turns into a thunderstorm by the time you finish eating! Today we have our White Chili and Tomato Rice soup, which are great twists on childhood favorites! We also have our Feta and Cranberry Nut muffins for those wanting a to try something new and delicious. I hope I see you all here rain, shine or both!

Hey yall!

It's a beautiful morning here at the Baldpate and hopefully it will stay that way! I am still not used to this fluctuating weather. In Texas we have two types of weather, hot and very hot, so it's strange  to me that yesterday I was able to tan in the morning but saw sleet in the afternoon. Luckily the weather cleared up just in time for our play "Marriage can be Murder" put on by the talented Fine Art Guild of the Rockies. I was lucky enough to bartend for this event so I got to stay and watch this hilarious murder mystery. If you missed out yesterday, don't worry you can join us tonight, the 16th or 17th at 6p.m. or tomorrow and the 18th at 2:30p.m. for another great show. To Reserve your seat feel free to  call us at 970-586-6151. You can also call to reserve your place at our lunch or dinner table! Today our soups are Cowboy Buffalo Stew and Pumpkin Curry and our muffins are Banana Butterscotch and Triple Cheese, yummy! Don't miss your chance to leave with a full tummy and a lightened mood!

Your wacky weather girl,

Georgie

Speaking of the sky, the hummingbirds are out and about today.It seems this crazy weather hasn't deterred them from stopping in at their favorite restaurant! Today we will be serving our Cowboy Buffalo Stew and our French Onion Soup. All of the returning staff have been raving about the French Onion Soup and how its subtle, rich flavors taste great with our Honey Wheat bread. From the smells wafting in from the kitchen I can tell its going to be a two or three bowl kind of day for me! Along with our fabulous soups we also have our delicious muffins. Today we have Lemon ginger and Zucchini Dill, yummy!
     And for all you animal lovers out there, don't miss out on our very special Enchanted Evenings tomorrow at 7p.m. Gillette Farms will be bringing their most lively yaks to The Baldpate and showing them off to the public.
