Sneak peak at Tupelo’s menu… yum…
We started out with ahi poke (oh, Hawaii I miss you)
Court ordered chicken tacos as an entree, I got coconut curry scallops.
The best part of the meal was a complimentary birthday dessert… cinnamon sugar bread pudding topped with heaps of fresh whipped cream. I’ve never ordered bread pudding, it sounds so unappealing. Was I ever wrong! Court and I were both overwhelmed by how good it was. We’re pretty sure it’s the best dessert we’ve ever tasted. You can’t go wrong with a butter-cinnamon-brown sugar combo!
After dinner we strolled around Whitefish admiring cute summer cottages. I want one!
I’ve already decorated my future vacation home in my mind. It’s going to be nautical/beach inspired with overstuffed white linen furniture, Ralph Lauren throws and a wrap around porch where I’ll drink spiked lemonade.
Since massive crowds make me
homicidal antsy, we decided to watch the fireworks from a distance, on the side of Big Mountain road. What an incredible vantage point – you could see fireworks for miles over the Flathead Valley.
We lit a bunch of our own fireworks too. As a kid I hated fireworks and popping balloons. I actually still hate balloons, I get severe anxiety at children’s birthday parties. Haha.
After a full day of sun, swimming and fine dining, we called it a night. Good birthday. We headed home the following morning.
Until next time, Flathead Valley. My Dad keeps eyeballing properties – due to the crappy housing market, you can buy the whole town of Whitefish for approx $50 Canadian. What a steal! I wish he’d hurry up and choose something already!
Before leaving Whitefish, I made a stop by the grocery store and bought a cooler full of Synergy Kombucha AND….
Chobani!!! Canada basically only sells Go-gurt & Yop, so I made sure to stock up. I’ve decided peach Chobani is my favourite, with lemon in second place.
