we finished off the day with a giant ice cream cone and a movie. scofield convinced me to see godzilla [i got to pick the last movie we saw, so it was his turn]. i wasn’t excited at first, but it actually turned out to be really good. my husband has converted me into an action movie lover…what is happening!?
one day last week, scofield had the day off, so we decided to get out of town and take a short drive up to asheville. it was a beautiful day – perfect for a drive – and there were a few places i wanted to try. scofield just wanted to relax with a cup of coffee and a book, so we decided a day in asheville would be perfect.
our first stop was biscuit head in west asheville. i am a sucker for biscuits. it’s my guilty pleasure. scofield even tried to nickname me ‘biscuit’ once, but it didn’t really stick…anyway, i got the fried green tomato biscuit sandwich. brie cheese, fried green tomato, sliced red tomato, topped with a poached egg and salsa. so good.
scofield ordered the chicken biscuit – fried chicken, cole slaw, sweet potato spread, and a poached egg. i think one of my favorite parts of the restaurant was their toppings bar. i tried the rosemary garlic butter, and oh my gosh, it was heavenly. they even have gluten free biscuits. this places gets a double thumbs up. another favorite restaurant in asheville is white duck taco, if you’re interested.
we of course had to stop by the chocolate shop and try a few truffles. i was in love with the dark chocolate mojito truffle.
and scofield got his coffee shop + reading time in at izzy’s coffee den.
