Local Food Roulette

Each year I struggle to find something special to give hubby for Christmas, Valentines, his birthday and more. He is just difficult to buy for. But this year, for the weeks before his birthday, he talked more and more about the local food available here in West Michigan.

Now, I’d say hubby has been a foodie for years. It wasn’t a new development or a fad. But lately his mild interest has blossomed into more of a focused passion. Rather than just talking about great food he happened to eat or make, he was planning trips to new places to try new great foods that were recommended to him.

So, that became the basis of my birthday gift. Our city has a local FB group that allows people to chat about the latest and greatest in local food options. (No national chains allowed). I started there, compiling list after list of places to eat. I searched the FB group, browsed the website and local news articles to come up with several “Top 12” lists in several key food categories.

That was the hard part. After that, I just printed my lists on some pretty paper, bound them together with a ring, and delivered them to hubby with some cash and two dice. ┬áNow when he wants to try something new (or when we get caught in the “you pick,” “no, YOU pick,” rut) he can go to the list, roll the dice (snake eyes gives him the option of selecting the #1 or #2 item) and the roulette chooses for us!

I also included a few blank lists so that hubby can put together favorites, or even just restaraunts he wants to try that didn’t come up in my research, and play the game with those as well.

He absolutely loved the gift, and it hangs prominently on our fridge waiting out next night out (yeah, because that’s a thing that new parents get – right?)
