I’m just mad about Saffron

We’d planned to go to Asheville this past weekend.  It was going to be an amazing visit – prowling around Biltmore, tea at the Inn, and dinner at Mountain Magnolia Inn in Hot Springs (Madison County!).  We were going to hit another county on our way back too.  Everyone was predicting 2-4 inches of snow across the whole state on Saturday, so we cancelled our little trip.  I was very sad when it turned out that we’d cancelled for no reason, but we didn’t let the weekend go to waste.

We had dinner at Saffron, a yummy Indian restaurant in Morrisville.  We chowed down on samosas and chicken dishes (they have 2, so we each ordered 1 and shared).  I also tried an Indian beer they’d just gotten in that our server promised was very good.  I thought Royal Challenge was good – definitely a light beer (read: good for thirst quenching due to watery nature) but more flavorful than Corona.   ($9 for 22 oz bottle)  I just wish they had a buffet for dinner sometimes!  They have a great buffet during the week ($7?) and an even bigger one on the weekend ($11).

We also visited Daylight Donuts in Cary for breakfast.  Jason adores these doughnuts – they’re the yeasty kind and remind him of his aunt’s old shop.  I still prefer Krispy Kreme’s airy, so-sweet-they-make-your-teeth-ache doughnuts, but these are good too.   If you visit Fri-Sun, grab a sausage roll.  Yum.  This reminds me – I want to visit Fractured Prune again sometime soon (without Jason!  he doesn’t like their cake doughnuts with customized glaze and toppings); I vastly prefer those to Dunkin’ Donuts.

Pictures to be added later.
