Boise Day 2: Friday Part I

We ambled downstairs on Friday morning to a gourmet breakfast. Our hostess is quite the foodie. The table was set formally and breakfast came in courses. For the first course, Betti had whipped up a tropical fruit soup, topped with a dollop of creme fraiche and a sprinkling of coconut. We were served fresh squeezed orange juice in beautiful antique glasses and small blueberry scones with marionberry jelly. And finally, french toast coated with crushed nuts and a citrus syrup, bacon, and a slice of orange.

After breakfast we explored the Boise neighborhoods by car, trying to get a feel for where we might want to live. We then dropped the car back at the inn and headed downtown on foot for lunch. We ended up at the
Bittercreek Ale House. The food was excellent: Jon had clam chowder and I had a house roasted turkey sandwich on toasted sourdough bread with a side of black bean and quinoa salad.

Bittercreek has a wide variety of microbrew beers on tap.

We had alot of fun at Bittercreek, chatting up the bartender from Montana and photo-documenting our fun by taking silly pictures.
