Good Eats

Some people keep food journals for weight loss or health reasons, but that doesn't have to be the only reason. I journal about food because I love to go to new places and try new things.  Below is a layout using a new digital design kit for food journaling called Good Eats.

More about Philippe's
While we were in LA to visit friends, we met my brother in law, at a place a round the corner from his house called Philippe's. This place is home to the "French Dipped Sandwich". This location we visited is one of the oldest resteraunts in Southern California and we saw a great mix of old guy regulars, hipsters and tourists. It was established in 1908 but it wasn't til about ten years later that the "French Dipped Sandwich" was created. The owner Philippe Mathieu, while making a sandwich dropped  it accidently into a roasting pan filled with juice still hot from the oven. The patron, said he would go ahead and take the sandwich anyway and came back the next day with some friends asking for more of those dipped sandwiches. That is how they claim it happened, and I am sure glad it did. Well worth the visit!

The full Good Eats digital scrapbook kit will be available for download soon so check back for details.
