Whole Foods Opens Store in Fort Collins

Whole Foods has opened a store in Fort Collins in the old Montgomery Ward building. It seems to have taken them a long time to remodel and prepare the site, but it is worth the wait. I’ve lobbied Whole Foods for a Fort Collins store for a couple of years…and, I was apparently not the only one!

We visited the store for the first time Wednesday morning, and I am so very happy! The selection of fresh fish, meats, organic produce, cheeses, etc. is just fantastic. The people are helpful and knowledgeable. The store is beautiful and fun to shop. The aromas are mouth watering.

Of course, consistent with their reputation, they are not a cheap place to shop, so we won’t do our everyday shopping there. But, when I need fresh fish, custom cuts of meat, special cheeses, or gourmet items not available elsewhere, I’ll be roaming their aisles!

Welcome to Fort Collins, Whole Foods!

Dawg’s Deli

A new deli just opened up last week. It is located halfway between Loveland and Fort Collins in the industrial area that homes the UPS facility and the Veterinary Hospital. It is called Dawg’s Deli and is open for breakfast and lunch Monday-Saturday.

The official address is: 235 W. 67th Ct., Loveland. Their phone is 970-278-1481.

Lynne and I went there for lunch the other day and we were very impressed. They are a bit pricey but the food was great. Read more for the story behind Daw’s Deli.

United Way Cooking Classes

Every year, as a part of my company’s annual United Way contribution drive, I auction off two cooking lessons, each for two people. I am usually successful in combining the two winners into one night of cooking for 6 people. Everyone participates!

This year, I plan to try some new things. We’ll do Italian. I’m thinking home-made mozzarella cheese. Home-made pasta. Pork cooked in milk. ... What to have for dessert?

Here are some photos of the class from last year. As I decide on this year’s menu, I’ll post it as a comment to this article.
