Homemade Carmel Corn to Welcome Us Home

We were in Asheville. It was treacherous, icy, relatively miserable and absolutely fun. Magic happens when couples embark on adventures together & that’s what the past couple of days were. Layers of clothing, our sturdiest tromping boots, the good fortune of owning a Subaru & a silly notion that a mountain town like this would be equipped for the inclement weather–not so, but what a great time. In good time most of the local indescribably good cuisine spots were open & with full bellies we skated, slipped and stomped all around town.

The girls spent a couple days with their Savta & for no other special occasion but taking advantage of an opportunity, Drew & I took a little break. We visited all the spots mentioned in this post & even a few new ones, like this & did you know about this local treasure?!

Anyway, we’re back home & it’s nice too. To make it especially sweet to be home, and to re-warm the house we’re making some caramel corn. Thanks Charissa! It’s not done yet, but my sampling promises it will be delightful.

    I can't believe you really went- glad that you stayed safe. We chickened out and didn't drive home until Tuesday.
    Asheville is the yummiest!
