Thumbin' My Way Into North Caroline

I recently took a trip to Raleigh, NC to visit some of my besties from high school. It was a great weekend get-a-way minus the pilot attempting barrel rolls on the way there. I love to explore new cities and especially new restaurants. Of course my friends know this and they had quite the line up of local eateries for me to choose from.
 We had breakfast at the State Farmer's Market. It was a delicious local breakfast with some of the best sausage gravy I've even eaten (don't tell my grandma please). The biscuits were great and they had containers of molasses on the table. That gets two thumbs up in my book.
 Our next stop was a super cute place call Hayes Barton Cafe and Dessertery. We went there soley for dessert but I hear their food is good as well. The cakes were enourmous and delicious. We ordered four different types to try....Neopolitan, Coconut, Lemon Blueberry, and Flourless Chocolate with a Nutella Filling. The Lemon Blueberry was hands down my favorite. I'm craving it right now. Somebody bring me a piece please...

 Of course we had to get some mexican food at Dos Taquitos. They had some banging steak tacos and one too many pitchers of margaritas...girls just wanna have fun and fun we did have!
Last but not least was a wonderful lunch at Foster's Market in Durham. It was one of the cutest places ever. They have tons of picnic tables and chairs outside and everybody just crowds in. The food is all fresh and local and AMAZING. I had a plate with chicken salad, a cold sweet potato salad, and a white bean salad with feta and dries cherries.
 If you guys are ever in Raleigh you gotta check on these places. I promise you won't be sorry.

Thanks Terra and Kristin for a great weekend!
