Another Retama Village reunion

LOCATION:  Missoula, Montana
CAMPGROUND:  Jim and Mary’s RV Park
WEATHER:  Rain on and off.  Cooler.  High 80 (for about a minute)

We enjoyed a delightful get-together with friends from our South Texas community – Sarah and Richard Shong.  Coincidentally, they are in Missoula for a few days and are heading to Dillon, where we are going next week.  They joined us for a cup of coffee and some chatty conversation.

In the afternoon, we stopped by the US Federal Forest Service Visitor Center.  It was a nice outdoor museum, telling us the history of the Forest Service.  We had the place to ourselves…

Then, on to conquer yet another of Missoula’s 11 breweries.  #7 was Highlanders.  It is a beautiful, huge building located right on a creek.  Normally, they would be having concerts and would be about town with their food truck.

We sat along the creek.  George took advantage of me being the designated driver and enjoyed a 10.5% stout aged in whiskey barrels.

DINNER:  I invented a new dish….First, I thawed the remaining piece of naan from a long-ago Indian meal.  George toasted it on the propane grill in our iron skillet.  I made a topping of sauteed chicken (last of the rotisserie chicken I bought awhile ago and had frozen), onions, and mushrooms.  The assembly was the naan, a layer of cream cheese, some dabs of pesto, the chicken/onion/mushroom mix, and some oregano and parmesan sprinkled on the top.  I will do this one again!
