We’ve had a lovely start here in Missoula. We began with sleeping until our hearts were content, followed by a morning workout in the super nice Precor fitness room. I covered ~4 miles spilt between treadmilling and ellipticaling and watching Real Housewives on the TVs.
Silly me forgot about my hurt wrist, which hasn’t bothered me since the Homewood Suites, and picked up a 15 pounder. Ack! It seems that bicep curl motions are impossible, so I need to remember not to attempt those for a few weeks! Period!
I had a banana before and after my workout. Not too much because we had big plans for breakfast!
After showers and stuffing every last corner of my duffel bag with clothes, we headed out on foot downtown.
I really like Missoula! So many cute shops and restaurants. And lots of amazing menus!
Breakfast was a tough call, but ultimately the Shack Café’s buckwheat pancake got us in the door. This place was recommended by a friend.
It was 9:30 and coffee was a must! We were so happy to see that it was STRONG!
Spiked with some milk – I think I drank four cups! It’s so easy to just keep gulping it down when you have unlimited refills.
We saw this bowl full of cherries and other fruits dance by our table and knew we wanted one too. It was pricy, but worth every bite – really good fruit!!
Loved the touch of the POM arils!
And then my pancake!!! It was MONSTROUS and so good! I ordered one pancake (glad I just got one because it was so big) with two over easy eggs for a side of protein and maximum satiety for my day ahead.
It was deeelish!
With a drizzle of thick syrup and a schmear of butter
We kept raving to our waitress how delicious the breakfast was. She said we made her day being so enthusiastic about it : )
Overeasy is my favorite egg style. I always forget and order them sunny side up, but I prefer overeasy because the yolk is more evenly distributed throughout the white yet you still get that great runny inside.
Matt got a huge omelet with hashbrowns and sourdough toast. It was both of our goals to eat a large brunch since our lunch hours are busy. He cleared his plate and helped me with mine!
To the airport I go! My flight gets in at 11PM tonight – gonna be a long day.
