An Olympic Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We mowed our backyard weeds grass this morning…

Genifer went out with a couple of her friends in Over-the-Rhine this afternoon. I dropped her off at Queen City Radio…

I hung out with dogs and watched Olympics all day. It was pretty awesome. And then we went on a walk…

Good evening from Northside…

When I went down into OtR to pick up Genifer, there was this crazy car behind me…

We watched the Minnesota United match draw their match against Vancouver. And then we watched more of the Olympics. We’ve really been enjoying the heck out of the games. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Friday burger night.

Friday got off to a gloomy start as well…

Good morning from Northside…

The bushes were covered in these little white flowers…

After work, we walked down to Gulow Street for our new Friday Burger Night…

On our way home, we stopped for a drink at Northside Tavern and then we took our very patient pups around the block on their walk…

Good evening from Northside…

And we finished our Friday by sitting out on our back patio fan watching some Olympics for a little bit…

We had a pretty good Friday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ”β€οΈ

Pineapple upside down cheesecake?!

It was a pretty overcast Thursday morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We drove over to St. Bernard to get Skyline lunch…

And on our way home, of course we get stuck behind a train…

The train wasn’t too long. We made it home to enjoy our Skylines…

It was still looking pretty grey and a little stormy when we were heading out on our evening walk…

Good evening from Northside…

And for dinner, we ate our deep dish pizza from Chameleon…

I love deep dish pizza. And we ate our pineapple upside down cheesecake that we got with our Skyline lunch…

We weren’t sure about pineapple upside down cheesecake but it turned out to be amazing. And we wished we would have ordered two slices. And that was our Thursday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ§€πŸŒ­πŸ•πŸβ€οΈ

We tried to move our burger night.

Good morning from Northside…

Our hanging plant is our backyard is getting lots of new flowers…

After work, we walked down to Gulow Street. We wanted to switch our Burger Tuesdays to Burger Wednesdays. But when got to Gulow Street, we learned that they are closed on Wednesdays…

Who knew? We never even thought about double checking to make sure that they were open on Wednesdays. Oh well, lesson learned…

So we waked over to Chameleon to get slices instead…

We wanted to start with their spicy cheese bites with marinara sauce. But the bites had been replaced with huge spicy cheese sticks…

Spicy cheesy goodness! And our slices showed up…

Chameleon’s slices are amazing as well. But it’s weird eating pizza when you were really ready for a cheeseburger. But with that said, I also ordered one of Chameleon’s deep dish pepperoni pizzas to go for lunch tomorrow.

Maybe we’ll just move our burger night to Friday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒΈπŸ•β€οΈ

Sloppy Josephs are good.

Good morning from Northside…

Our HelloFresh meal tonight was Old-School BBQ Pork Sloppy Joes with pickled onion, potato wedges and chipotle ranch…

Sloppy Joes are so good. So good in fact that I completely forgot to take a photo of my Sloppy Joe before I inhaled it. And it was delicious.

Good evening from Northside…

We watched a bunch more Olympics tonight. We’ve really been enjoying them. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ½οΈπŸ†β€οΈ

Today was a hot one.

Good morning form Northside…

It was a hot one today…

Our first HelloFresh meal of the week was Jalapeno Business Bacon Mac & Cheese with with crispy breading topping…

Holy geez. Every single one of these meals is delicious. I would definitely eat this one at least once a week. It was so good.

And good evening from Northside…

We were watching more of the Olympics tonight. We couldn’t locate the remote after the coverage concluded. And while we were looking for it, we were subjected to the local news…

Apparently, it’s going to be hot on Thursday as well. But oppressive? Really? There wasn’t another word they could have used? We were reminded again that there’s a reason we don’t watch any of the local news broadcasts.

And I recently tallied my 81,000th check-in on my Swarm

It was good Monday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ‘οΈπŸ½οΈπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Pineapple IS a pizza topping.

Early this morning, we got up and ran over to the grocery…

Kroger had both pandas and trains today in the international aisle…

And Kroger always has the best balloons.

Afterward, we stopped at Mad Llama for some java whips…

When we got home, we took the dogs on their walk…

Good morning from Northside…

Later this afternoon, we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch…

Taft’s house salad is terrific…

Today, Taft’s had a special Hawaiian pizza…

Anyone who says pineapple isn’t a pizza topping clearly hasn’t had a Hawaiian pizza because they are delicious. We finished all of it while we watched more Olympics…

We used some more of our Taft’s gift card. And we still have a little bit of our gift card left. It’s been the gift that keeps on giving. We love Taft’s.

And good evening from Northside…

We had a great Sunday and a great weekend. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ•πŸπŸ₯—πŸ”β€οΈ

Saturdays are the best.

Good morning from Northside…

For lunch, we had our last HelloFresh meal of the week. This one was Sesame Soy Pork Bowls with sriracha mayo, cilantro and crispy onions…

These meals are delicious. This was one was no exception. But it was a little on the spicy side. It was the first one that we had to take breaks from eating because it was so spicy. Still, it was delicious.

Good evening from Northside…

We walked back down to Gulow Street for some noodles…

Genifer order some Sesame Noodles…

And I ordered the Rigatoni Bolognese with garlic bread…

And I love garlic bread. Ohmigosh. We love Gulow Street so much. Everything is so good. We’re so happy they decided to become part of our Northside.

And later, we watched the Olympics in our backyard…

I forgot to take a photo of our projector set-up this evening. I think our set-up is pretty cool. I love the weekends when we can sit out on our patio and enjoy our backyard. And Saturdays are the best. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸœπŸ“ΊπŸ†β€οΈ

The Tokyo Olympics are underway!

Good morning from Northside…

Good evening from Northside…

Tonight, we watched the Tokyo Olympics Open Ceremonies. I thought they were very poignant yet exceptionally beautiful. For me, he most spectacular part was the amazing drone display…

Such pageantry. We’re really excited for the Olympics. With still working from home because the pandemic, it’s a quite opportunity to get to really deep dive into the Tokyo games and have them on in the background all day. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ†β€οΈ

Also, it’s hard to believe there isn’t an emoji for the Olympic rings.

Lunch from Morsel & Nosh.

Good morning from Northside…

This afternoon we walked over to Morsel & Nosh for lunch…

Genifer ordered the tuna melt…

And I ordered The Violet. It was delicious house-made chicken salad with lettuce on a soft and flaky croissant..

And I added a slice of American cheese. Whenever possible, I always add a slice of cheese. Cheese makes the best stuff even better. They were terrific sammiches. We can’t wait to go back to Morsel & Nosh for lunch again very soon.

Good evening from Northside…

Our HelloFresh meal tonight was Sheet Pan Turkey-Meatball Flatbreads with mozzarella, bellpepper and onions…

Their flatbreads are some of my favorite meals.

This evening we put this little pet memorial for Svensk under our tree in our side yard next to our pet memorial for Milan…

I miss the kitty so much. I think about her every day. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ₯ͺπŸ₯πŸ½οΈπŸ±πŸ‘Όβ€οΈ
