Nice dinners out are a real treat, you know? Similar to how I’ve been working on slowing down and appreciating the little things in life, I’ve recently been trying to make a point to eat out more, as strange as that may sound, in an effort to appreciate the variety and interesting characteristics of the places I’m in.
Yeah, it hurts my budget a bit… but frankly, I’m positive toward supporting the local flavor. And I’m getting something else for my money, aside from the good feelings from supporting local and the tasty meals that come with it… I’m learning more recipes!
I mean, how many of my favorite dishes come from reverse-engineering meals I’ve had at restaurants, hmm? Exactly – a whole ton of them!
So enjoy a few quick pictures from Jess and my’s wanderings around her neighborhood, ending at a delicious little local Italian spot.
