Jenny and I spent all day at the lake yesterday and had an absolute blast! We hitched a ride back to downtown with a friend and fell asleep right away. When we woke we were both craving some brunch action, so we texted Elisa and were on our way to Blue Dahlia in no time.
Right as we put our name on the list, the heavens opened up and it started pouring. Unfortunately, this doubled our wait time since the patio was no longer an option. Fortunately, we could slurp on coffee while we waited.
The soup of the day was cauliflower leek, which exceeded my super high expectations. It had the perfect amount of flavor and creaminess and I’m a little sad knowing that this soup won’t be available all the time.
I also ordered the hummus and taboule plate. The taboule was different than I expected (barely any parsley), but still pretty tasty. The rest of the platter was s0-so. Hummus needs pita, or veggies, or almost anything but thick, dense slices of bread. I wasn’t a fan.
After brunch, Jenny and I headed back to the lake to meet up with the boys. We hopped on paddle boards and continued the fun that we left late last night. We both agreed that this group is the best around and can’t wait for the work-weeks to pass so the weekends can be filled with more lake goodness!
