Day Trip to Asheville

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.

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!?
