Q. Why is Canterbury called a Cowgirl's Deli?
A. A couple years ago, Canterbury was in need of updating and my love of horses and all things Western seemed like a great fit.
We started with the sign. My paint horse, Jet, who is very photogenic, is on the outside sign designed by McQuillen Creative. The horsey interior followed. I got the idea on a weekend trip to Medora, N.D. I ate at a little place called the Cowboy Cafe. It had tons of photos of bull riders. It turns out the owner had been a Badlands Circuit qualifier in bull riding. I realized I probably wasn't the only customer intrigued by his pictures and decor.
People seem interested in my story and get a laugh out of the fact that I am still barrel racing. The funny part is that I only started racing three seasons ago. I had been a recreational rider since childhood, but didn't start competing until summer 2011. I won two buckles in 2012.
Q. What kinds of food do you serve?
A. Primarily from-scratch soups, sandwiches and desserts. I do any type of catering where people want homemade food. I really enjoy doing interesting hors d'oeuvres. Office lunches or box lunches are popular.
Q. What are some of your most popular foods?
A. Cream of chicken wild rice and mushroom soup; amaretto bread pudding with honey cream sauce; turkey grape salad; chocolate revel bars; and honey pecan chicken salad croissants.
Q. Do you have any new menu items?
A. Every month, Betty Sheldon, a very cool local artist, sends out an email with all the new specials for the month. Stop in and get on the list to receive such updates.
