Breakfast never tasted so good!

Yum

As you know, I am at the Lake at a workshop this week. Since it is a work week, I have dedicated myself to getting things done for school so I have not spent any time eating out or anything decadent like that...

...until this morning. I had read a review recently in Southern Living magazine (my all time favorite magazine) about On the Rise Bistro here at the Lake and since it is on my way to the workshop, I promised myself I would try it for breakfast once while I was here.

The food was amazing. It was hard to decide what to get, but I ended up with this:
breakfast flatbread with scrambled eggs and basil sausage and fontina and aged cheddar cheeses with a dijon mustard sauce served with country potatoes and fresh fruit. Top this off with Godiva hot chocolate and it is easy to see why I was in heaven.

And, because the portion was large, I ended up saving half for lunch and got to experience it all over again! If you are at the Lake anytime soon, try this place out. I am dying to get there for lunch: they have lobster pot pie!

  5. Bless your heart, Terri. You and I simply could not live close together. I sense you would lead me down the path of culinary temptation and I am far too easily lead as it is. LOL That breakfast looks amazing.

    When Randey and I stayed at that Bed and Breakfast in Sulphur, OK a few weeks ago, we got a 2 course breakfast every morning. It was DIVINE. The french toast was out of this world. The homemade blueberry panpakes were unbelievable and the waffles were pretty darn fantastic, too. I gained almost 3 pounds in less than a week there. And I was perfectly thrilled to do so because that was some FINE eating. (See how weak I am? AND shameless? lol)

    Keep posting about all the good food you're finding and I may jump off my WW wagon and come hunt you down. (To assist you with your endeavors! lol)

  7. Terri, this is one of our favorite places at the Lake. I can't believe you haven't eaten there before now. The Lobster Bisque is amazing!!! My favorite dish at the Lake BY FAR. The chips they serve with lunch are also to die for. Creme Brule is an amazing dessert too. Hope you are having fun and bringing me lots of good handouts. See you soon my friend.
