Cat is road-tripping. In the meantime, here’s a prescheduled post for your reading enjoyment. 

The rest of the Qwerty crew is holding down the fort in California while I’m gallivanting around Big Sky country. The last time I was in Montana, it looked like this.

Brr.

Thankfully it’s summer this time. My last summer trip to the state was in 2008. My grandma had passed away in 2007 and a whole bunch of extended family gathered together in a way that would honor her memory – getting sunburned and bug-bitten while risking grizzly bear encounters in the wilderness of Glacier National Park. An amazing place that I highly recommend visiting at least once in your lifetime.

Here’s grandma Dorothy when she was a spry young thing. See that twinkle in her eye? After my grandpa passed away, she was still getting marriage proposals — into her eighties. Rawr.

Anyhoo, here’s what I’m probably looking at right about now (forgive my 2008 photography skills):

And here’s a lake and some mountains and trees and stuff.

More lake, a hill, trees, and some boats or whatever.

Water and such.

Water, trees, mountains. The usual.

GUESS WHAT THIS IS A PICTURE OF.

Road, water, trees, and the aftermath of a forest fire. 2758738362_04f05a5d99_o

Anyway…

Montana is a gorgeous place and, since this is a food blog, I’ll share with you some of my favorite Montana places to grab a bite to eat…

After I get back.

Cat loves to eat tasty homemade things, yet isn’t terribly fond of the process of making them. She prefers recipes that take shortcuts when possible – without compromising flavor. Her dog, Cheeto, likes stealing her creations from the dining room table.

She lives in the Bay Area and cites her diverse background as her biggest influence: her visual artist mom is half-Chinese, half-Greek, and from Hawai’i; her film-loving, world-music curating dad is from Montana; and she lived in both California and Montana while growing up. She loves at least a little bit about virtually everything (Pokémon Snap included) and aims to be a Jane of all trades. By day Cat is a multiple-hat-wearing media person.

She is also allergic to felines.
