Though we do make an effort to eat every meal at home during the week, we love going out to eat when the weekend rolls around. We're lucky to live walking distance from some of our very favorite restaurants, but that also means that we find ourselves at the same two restaurants week after week. Sure, it's nice (or maybe embarrassing), to have staff hug you when you walk in, or ask how many visits it's been so far this week, but one of our favorite things to do is try new places.
I saw the idea for creating a "Food Passport" on Pinterest and thought it'd be a great way for us to break our habit. The concept is simple: fill a notebook with different restaurants you'd like to try. When the inevitable "Where should we eat?" debate arises, pull out the notebook and choose somewhere. Easy-peezy project.
I had carved a fork/spoon/knife stamp for a farmer's market tote, so I thought it'd the perfect thing to stamp on the cover of a blank Moleskine. (Although here, it looks more like a spork than a fork). I then wrote down all the restaurants we've been wanting to eat at inside, leaving room to record what we had. I also plan on stamping the date we visited with a date stamp. If space allows, it'd be great to washi (yep, it's a verb now) a business card or memento from the restaurant to the page.
I actually have quite a few DIY ideas I've completed that I'll be sharing in the weeks ahead. I decided to decorate our bedroom for the first time ever, which resulted in some fun projects that I'm excited to post on here. Stay tuned!
