Springtime at Gibson Mansion Bed and Breakfast

Spring in Missoula is like an awakening of sleeping beauty. As I type this post I look out my window at snow capped Lolo Peak with a beautiful baby blue sky backdrop.

The morning view from my desk window!

The swallows, chickadees, and red wing blackbirds are announcing a new day that promises the warm spring sunshine. The air is brisk yet refreshing with the frost sparkling like diamonds as the morning sun rays begin to warm the landscape.

Stepping out the door to take it all in.

With a hot cup of coffee in my hand I walk outside and breathe it all in. I look forward to a day of uncovering the fall and winter blankets on the gardens, allowing the spring flowers to awaken from their winter sleep.

Gibson Mansion’s Latest Breakfast Recipe

The new Asparagus and Egg on a Parmesan Toasted Croissant has been a big hit this spring. We thought it would be good to give you an updated photo from this new dish as the last one was the trial and did not look pretty.

We have customized this recipe as well so that the guests that prefer not to “wreck the diet” can still enjoy all of the flavors. We can prepare it in a lower calorie, lower carb, and heart healthy version. We use egg whites instead of the full egg and the new Oroweat multi-grain sandwich thin in place of the high calorie, but oh so tasty croissant. For any of you out there wanting a bread that is a good source of protein, fiber, and grains without a lot of calories this is a great substitute that tastes great, unlike most that taste like cardboard! Sorry just had to put in my healthy eating plug.

So the next recipe adventure is the stuffed huckleberry french toast. For those not familar with huckleberries they are a signature fruit from our area. They are smaller than a blueberry, but have a tart yet sweet taste…a treat that even the bears will fight for. Warning though this will be one recipe that will wreck the diet. Sometimes you just have to indulge, we promise it will be worth every calorie!
