You know our trip to Montana had to include a visit to the Moose Drool Factory!!
Dozens of moose (mooses? meese!?) were there dripping their spit into buckets for us to drink.
Matt and I enjoyed a delightful flight of 8 of Big Sky Brewing’s beers. I have to say, my favorite was not the Moose Drool – it was the Belgian Brown. The most flavorful, delicious, high alcohol beer with a dumb name!! Why-oh-why wasn’t this named something crazy like “Worm Bait” or “Bear Sweat”!?
After finishing our tasting, we checked into our hotel and then walked to Scotty’s Table for dinner. Of all the people who recommended Missoula restaurants, I think Scotty’s Table came up as the most suggested food restaurant. We are glad because our meal was awesome!!!
We started with some thyme-salted bread from the neighboring bakery. I loved the thyme flavor in the bread!
And cheersed my survival of Montana with two AMAZING glasses of red wine!! I got the Green and Red Zin from Napa – best wine I’ve had all year!
We sure miss those bears!!
Matt ordered an amazing beet + bleu cheese appetizer
And I started with the Spinach Salad, topped with pears, apples, carrots, honey walnuts (candied = the best part!) and bleu cheese
My dinner were the appetizer portion Griddle Cakes – seared diver scallop served over a threesome of pancakes: potato, squash and corn with smoked pepper aioli, horshradish crème and jalapeno jam. It was perfection!
Matt had the Duck – seared with local huckleberry demi glaze over spaetzel with brussels, apples and bacon
Everything we ate was divine!
I cannot WAIT to slide into this down comforter!! We both agree that sandwich school wore us out!
