Dessert at the Onyx

We actually had dinner at the Onyx lounge and restaurant located in Lewistown’s Calvert Hotel…then dessert! After a very yummy dinner, which certainly documented that I’m a member of the clean plate club, we then ordered dessert. We all decided we wanted to sample a couple of the desserts on the menu and that “couple” […]

Historic Calvert Hotel in Lewistown

We’ve driven through quite an amazing rainstorm and finally got to Lewistown. Our one night in Lewistown will be spent at the Historic Calvert Hotel, just a couple blocks south of Main Street in a neighborhood near the beautiful Fergus County Courthouse. I stayed at the Calvert last October but we had already had a frost […]

Breakfast in Virgelle – Ode to Food

Even though I crawled back in bed for a few more zzzs after taking sunrise photos, I was still up early. Virgelle was quiet and serene. I usually go for a walk in the morning but today I was on a break from routine. I wandered over to the Merc where I had been told […]

MyBrother’s Gone Fishing

On just about any given day of the week it seems like my brother finds some time to go fishing. His gear is always ready, usually in his pickup, and he has quite a few nearby fishing spots in northern Montana. Yup, you guessed it, he is retired. I will add, he has always found […]

Let’s Talk Food

It’s late afternoon at Rocking Z Guest Ranch near Wolf Creek, MT. There’s a fairly good sized group of guests and I suspect they, like me, are all thinking about the next meal. OK…maybe I’m the only one thinking that! Maria is in the kitchen of the lodge, busy with food prep. There are a […]

It’s Time For Farmers’ Markets

Bedding plants, herbs, vegetables (fresh asparagus is what I bought), baked goods, wood crafts, pottery, jewelry (my weakness) and my […]

Here’s A Foodie Blog

I do like to talk about food in Russell Country! When our group ate at the Square Butte Country Club the other day we had a buffet-style lunch with (you won’t believe this) spinach wraps with asparagus and hummus, ultra-yummy chicken salad on a croissant, roast beef on sourdough, salad and of course two desserts. […]

Irish Dinner In Conrad

Yes, Conrad, Montana hosted an absolutely wonderful traditional Irish dinner last night. With wheels pointed north on I-15 for the easy 60 mile jaunt, six of us headed for an evening of great food and even greater Celtic music. We ate at Joe’s Family Steakhouse on the corner of Main and 4th Street, right by the […]

Good Fresh Food at Penny’s Gourmet

Today I had a noon meeting at Penny’s Gourmet to Go in downtown Great Falls, MT. I’ve managed to get in a bit of a habit when I go to Penny’s because I always, yes always, have one of her homemade soups. And, to continue the “always” haves, I have her homemade bread. It is […]

Food – Wonderful Food

Now, I’ve been known to rave about food and that’s just what I plan to do here! Several friends and I recently dined at the Union Grille located in the Grand Union Hotel in Fort Benton, MT. Oh my, what a treat. It was a chilly evening and we were a bit late for our dinner […]
