The Avid Pen Meets Foodie|Asheboro

A few weekends ago, we decided to take a little trip to Asheboro. We hadn’t been to our favorite bakery in a few months and after seeing all the delicious yumminess on their Facebook page, we knew it was time.

As always. that particular Saturday, rain was on the agenda. Honestly, we haven’t been to Asheboro one time where it hasn’t been rainy, but we always enjoy ourselves.

About ten minutes outside of our final destination, the flood gates opened. There’s something to be said about driving on a narrow two lane road in the rain! Nevertheless, we made it there all in one piece and very eager to enjoy a nice brunch at The Table Farmhouse Bakery.

They have a little farmers market across the street on Saturday mornings, but after searching and searching for a parking spot we decided it would be best to head into the bakery versus getting caught in the rain.

Since it was my sister's birthday and she couldn't come down from West Viriginia, we chatted with her on FaceTime. These are the desserts to celebrate!

We had heard about these Lemonade’s from The Table’s Facebook page. I adore the Lime & Lemongrass. It was just the right amount of fizz, and perfect blend of lime and lemongrass. I cannot wait to try it again. Mum went with the Pomegranate & Raspberry which she throughly enjoyed!

Now for some goodies from the shop. We looked through all of the fun things before making our decisions. I went with one of the tables signature t-shirts in one of the colors I love (yellow!) I also purchased some honey sticks for my chamomile and a cinnamon roll. Mum was a bit disappointed about the fact they’d just run out of their Bee Sting Pastries earlier in the┬ámorning, but settled for a coconut bun, and the placemats she found in their little market.

On the way back home, we stopped in a little out of the way shop we’d spotted on the way up… Ruffin’s Roost. It was one of those unexpected finds…

Well, that was our little trip to Asheboro. I’m already looking forward to a trip in the fall. The leaves are always so gorgeous that time of year!
