A lazy Sunday.

We had a pretty lazy Sunday. We ran a few errands this morning and on the way home, we stopped on the Westside to get some amazing, delicious Jet’s Pizza

We used to Jet’s all the time when we live downtown. But they don’t deliver to Northside. So now, it’s really a special treat when we get to bring home the goodness that is Jet’s pizza. Just look at all that deep dish deliciousness…

After we were stuffed full of yummy Jet’s, we took Oscar on a couple of walks but mostly we just laid around the rest of the afternoon and watched movies…

It was a pretty relaxing Sunday. 😀🍕❤️

Slow down and grill.

We fired up the grill again this evening…

We made some chicken breasts, bacon & cheddar stuffed burgers from Clifton Market and cheddar hotdogs…

It was a beautiful night in our backyard for grilling…

Those bacon & cheddar stuffed burgers from Clifton Market are out of this world…

And then we took Oscar on his evening walk to work off some of our delicious dinner…

It was the perfect Tuesday night at home. 😀🐔🍔🌭🏡🌳❤️

One year ago today…

One year ago today, we closed on our house

It’s crazy to think that a year ago we were still living in our tiny apartment downtown…

Buying our house in Northside was the best decisions we’ve ever made. And it’s been one of the best years of my life. 😀🔑🏡🌈❤️

We love our backyard.

It’s Friday night and there’s nothing better than hanging out on our back patio…

Darn right, more power.

We had a contractor come out this morning to replace our garage disposal. Just look at this beast of a new disposal…

The InSinkErator PRO 750 Evolution 3/4 HP Continuous Feed Food Waste Disposal. (Insert Tim Allen grunts). Kitchen wood chipper. The disposal was also causing our dishwasher not to drain properly. So we couldn’t really use our fancy super nice dishwasher. And now that our disposal works, our dishwasher works great again too!

You don’t know how much you take a dishwasher for granted until it isn’t working. And it was all extremely affordable thanks to our homeowner’s warranty! 😀

Slow down and grill.

It’s Monday. What better day to fire up the grill?

We grilled some really big jerk chicken breasts, lime-pepper marinated chicken tenders and a bunch of assorted vegetables…

All but one chicken is ready…

Now all the chicken is ready…

We’re just waiting on the vegetables…

And Genifer made cornmeal festival again!

YUM! And the best part is… there’s going to be more than enough for lunch tomorrow!
😀🐔🔥❤️

It was a really pretty evening…

And we had spaghetti and garlic bread for dinner…

I love spaghetti and garlic bread! Taken with Instagram. 😀🍝❤️

Slow down and grill.

I stopped at Clifton Market again on the way home this evening…

I picked up a few odds & ends supplies, some stuff to grill tonight and one of these delicious sounding orange chocolate chip muffins…

There is nothing better than stuff straight off the grill. 😀🍔🌭❤️

The bouquet of daisies I got for Genifer all the way back on May 24th is still looking as fresh as the day they arrived…

We didn’t do anything after our big fun day yesterday except lay around today. 😀🌼

Soccer Saturday.

There were a bunch of great soccer matches slated for later today. But first things first, this morning we had to do some yard work. We trimmed the bushes, pulled some weeds and mowed the grass in our little front yard…

We worked on our backyard a bit too. Before last night, before mowing today, and finally the beautiful after shot…

And we wrapped up just in time to watch the Champions League final. The result was kind of disappointing with Real Madrid beating Juventus 4-1. I thought it would have been a much more competitive match. But the lone Juventus goal was one for the ages. But 4-1 is still a little bit sad trombone.

Afterward, we walked down to Second Place to watch our FC Cincinnati play away to Rochester Rhinos

FC Cincy rested most of their starters, opting to go with mainly a second squad and as a result had a really hard time generating any sort of real offense and lost 1-0. The loss snaps FC|C’s four-match winning streak. They play another three home matches in the next seven days starting this Saturday when they welcome the Charlotte Indepence to Nippert Stadium. That match is then followed by the big #MLS2Cincy US Open Cup Hell Is Real Ohio derby match against Columbus Crew on Wednesday and then another home USL match this time against the first-placed Charleston Battery two weeks from today.

Soon after the FC Cincinnati match, the USMNT played a friendly against Venzelua. We made it home just after the kick-off. And that match ended 1-1. But the USMNT pride jerseys were pretty awesome. I might just have to look into ordering one of those for myself. They were some of the sharpest uniforms the USMNT has worn in quite a while. In fact, they’re my US favorite jerseys dating back to the old “sash” jerseys from the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. And I’m probably well overdue for a new USMNT jersey. ⚽️🏳️‍🌈

And even though not one team I was cheering for managed to win today, it was still a great afternoon and evening of soccer. 😀 ⚽️ ❤️

Good morning from Northside.

Slow down and grill.

I don’t know if you noticed but we hadn’t grilled yet this week. So I stopped into Avril Bleh Meat Market downtown on Court Street looking to pick up some burger patties to throw on the grill tonight…

I got two aged steak burger patties. The butcher said they were made with the leftover meat after they were done cutting the steaks. When there wasn’t enough meat left to cut another steak, they took what was left and ground into patties…

And we threw a bunch of hot dogs on the grill for lunches…

I should have cleaned off the top of the grill before it got super hot. Stupid mulberries.

After the burgers and dogs were done, we threw some chicken strips on the grill that Genifer had marinated half in BBQ sauce and half in jerk seasoning…

She also made some spicy baked mac & cheese topped Ritz crackers…

A delicious meal! Those burgers were outstanding, and the mac & cheese was great!

YUM! We love our grill! 😀 🍔 🌭 ❤️

 

Pause for paws.

Oscar was so excited to get to ride in the car with us this morning…

That excitement was gone by the time I got dropped off at work…

He probably figured out somewhere between point A and point B that he was going to get his haircut. But now he looks so handsome again with his new Superman bandana!

He’s a funny, funny little guy. 🙂

FA Cup Champions.

We watched The FA Cup final live from Wembley this afternoon on the telly. I was so happy that my Arsenal managed to down newly-crowned champions Chelsea. It was a long season for the Gunners. It was really nice to have it end on such a high note…

Amid all the turmoil this season, I’ve always been very much Wenger stay.

Since he took leadership of Arsenal in 1996, Arsene Wenger steered them to 3 Premier League titles, 7 FA Cups, FA Community Shields and 21 straight Champions League appearances. His teams also set several English records: the longest win streak, the longest unbeaten run and the only 38 match season unbeaten.

I suppose there’s a chance that by getting rid of Arsene Wenger and making the change to another manager could reap more championships or maybe be more successful in the Champions League. But I think there’s a greater chance that the team would not be nearly as successful. I just don’t understand how people have been all upset by the club “only” lifting 16 trophies in the last 21 years. And how many other clubs would love to have a run of 21 consecutive top four finishes? I guess for some people nothing’s ever good enough. 😀 ⚽️ ❤️

UPDATE: Arsene Wenger has signed a new two-year deal! But he was told by Arsenal chiefs, You must win major trophy in two years.” No pressure there. Ugh. 😬

 

NYPD Pizza.

We planned to order pizza tonight and watch the Reds play the Indians on TV. It’s fun to eat pizza and watch the Reds. Apparently, there was some sort of torrential downpour in Cleveland and the Reds-Indians game was postponed. Even without the Reds, tonight still seemed like a good NYPD pizza kind of night. Their Station House pizza is just lights out. And we added ham to it tonight to make it even better! I’ve also really been digging on their BBQ/Buffalo wings lately too…

YUM! We really like NYPD. They’re such good stuff. 🙂
