Last Friday, we headed to Asheville, NC with some dear friends. The weekend was absolutely perfect and the fall colors were spectacular.
We enjoyed lunch at a restaurant (Larkin's on the Lake) overlooking Lake Lure. It was so relaxing to sit on the deck and soak up the sun. I could have lingered there for hours, but we were headed back to Asheville to tour some model homes and view some of the different areas.
Sorry, no pictures of all the homes we visited, but they were beautiful. We did get to talk with Mark Barker, who was the builder of the 2006 HGTV dream home. Anyone remember this room? -- gorgeous -- as was the rest of the house.
A favorite restaurant I would highly recommend in downtown Asheville is Tupelo Honey Cafe. Known for their fresh, farm to table food, made from scratch, it's no surprise that we dined there twice. I loved their fried green tomatoes with goat cheese grits and basil. First time eating fried green tomatoes & grits and I devoured every bite before I could snap a picture of it. Not to be missed are their homemade biscuits which are served before each meal with honey and homemade blueberry jam. Seriously, I could have made them my entire meal they were that good.
I actually located a recipe online for their biscuits and hope to give it a test run this weekend. Here is the link. All this talk about food is making me hungry. How about you?
