Lately Pinterest has just been too sassy for me. I log in and all I see is reminders of things that I can't do. I can't sew even though I have a sewing machine sitting in my stupid storage unit. I will never spend a Sunday making 2390734 freezer meals. I don't have a way to magically make a washer & dryer appear in a spacious Master Suite Closet. (But let's just all take a minute and let our minds be blown by how amazing of an idea that truly is.)
And just when I was about to abandon all hope for pinning, I stumbled across this little gem. The Food Passport by The Spotted Fox.
Best part-super easy steps. Procure yourself a small notebook and divide each page in half. In each "square" fill in the name & address of favorite eateries mixed in with places that have been lingering on that "let's check it out" list. & Don't forget to save room the stamp when you've visited that particular place.
Whenever the boy and I are trying to figure out where to eat out, the conversation normally goes a little something like this. "You pick." "I don't care." "What about here?...NOPE!" and so on and so forth, until we end up in front of a basket of tortilla chips. The end result is a whole lot of wasted opportunities to experience funky food options & a mexican waiter that knows our orders by heart.
Plus the possibilities for this as a gift are endless. Got friends that were recently married? Make them a food passport & include a couple of gift cards to favorite eateries. As a Realtor, I think this would be a great closing gift (along with some gift cards) for anyone that is relocating. Since the hubby has hit me with the travelling bug, I think it would be great to tailor food passports specifically to adventures. How cool would a stack of these, each from a different trip, be as mementos? It would be such a neat way to document experiences together.
