It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made one of my favorites again for dinner tonight, Honey Sriracha Chicken

YUM! 😀🍯🌶️🐔❤️

But no rainbow?

When I got off the bus this evening, it started pouring. No big deal. But the weird thing was there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and the sun was out in full effect…

But I couldn’t find the rainbow anywhere. 😕🙃🌦️🌈❤️

 

Good evening from Northside.

There have been so many pretty evenings lately. 😀🌥️❤️

It’s what’s for dinner.

It was Taco Tuesday for dinner tonight. But on a Wednesday? Whaaaaat?

YUM! Tacos. 😀🌮❤️

Constructing Cincinnati.

I’ve been crazy busy at work lately, and haven’t had much of a chance to get out and wander around downtown for a bit. But I was walking to get my hair cut this afternoon and I couldn’t help but notice that there’s a lot of construction going on in downtown Cincinnati again.

They’re still trying to demolish the last little bit of The Dennison Hotel. Apparently, there was some sort of shared common wall issue with the building next door. And now this eyesore has taken the place of a historic building…

The only reminder The Dennison Hotel beside the hole in the ground is this sticker on what remains of the red brick facade…

Across the parking lot, it looks like the new apartment building that was being built across the street from our old apartment is finally reaching completion. And it has a fancy name, Encore.

Seeking of facades, it looks like they’re doing some pretty extensive work on the facade of this building on Main Street judging by the scaffolding…

Right next door, Bay Horse Cafe is open for business…

There’s a Wahlburger’s coming to Sixth Street where Pi Pizzeria used to be…

That will bring the downtown burger joint count to five with Americano, Bobby’s Burger Palace, Bru, Burger-fi and now Walburgers. Also on Sixth Street is all this mess…

The old Trattoria Roma is becoming an Irish pub & restaurant, O’Reilly’s…

And there’s also a new pizza place on Sixth Street called Zablong…

There’s this mess on Eighth Street…

And finally, Deskey has a new front window display…

The more things change, the things stay the same. There’s always something new popping up or being constructed in downtown Cincinnati. 😀❤️

V’s Cafe Wednesday Grillout.

I was walking back to work from getting my hair cut, and I stumbled across V’s Cafe Wednesday Grillout on the little plaza at the corner of Walnut and Seventh Streets just outside of the Aronoff Center for the Arts…

It came down to the Rib Eye Sandwich or the Mushroom & Swiss Burger…

I made a good decision. It was a great burger for just $6. I can’t wait to check out the next V’s Grillout Wednesday! 😀🍔❤️

USWNT versus New Zealand.

IT’S INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLY MATCHDAY! The United States Women’s National Team was playing their first match in Cincinnati since 2008 as they hosted New Zealand at Nippert Stadium. It also marks the first time the University of Cincinnati has ever hosted a national team match…

It seems like we’ve had our tickets for this match for months…

And the big day was finally here…

Here comes New Zealand…

And here comes the USWNT…

There’s Megan Rapinoe…

Tobin Heath…

And Cincinnati’s own Rose Lavelle…

They got the crowd going before the match with a chant of, “USA! USA! USA!”

The New Zealand National Anthem…

O say can you see…

Whoever made the tifo for the match deserves a high five, a handshake and pat on the back because it was pretty awesome…

Here we go…

GOAL USA! After relentless pressure right from the start of the match, the USWNT finally found the back of the net. New Zealand was doing a pretty good job of trying to weather the storm. But you had the feeling it was only a matter of time until the US finally opened the scoring…

And Mallory Pugh made it 2-0 before the half. But the highlight was the perfectly
weighted through ball. You can’t defend against that sort of precision…

At halftime, it was still 2-0 USWNT…

Rose Lavelle was subbed off near the end of the first half…

There was a cool FC Cincinnati promo during halftime…

GOAL USWNT! Alex Morgan came in at the half and was quickly on the scoresheet

At this point, it was becoming kind of ridiculous as the USWNT netted their fourth

We missed the goal but the USWNT added a fifth to make it 5-0. And it was an absolute stunner! Alex Morgan’s second goal of the night put the exclamation mark on an unforgettable evening!

The average attendance at a USWNT match is around 18,700…

With 30,596, tonight marked the 7th highest attendance for a standalone USWNT friendly. Cincinnati certainly shows out for its soccer…

Didn’t have a ticket? Didn’t matter. People still turned out to watch the match…

Mercifully, the full-time whistle was blown. 5-0 to the USWNT!

Not surprisingly, Alex Morgan was named Player of the Match after her brace tonight…

I wonder if Alex Morgan has a lot of fans?

What a night!

After the match, it sounded like the USWNT was definitely impressed with the atmosphere and support at Nippert Stadium

It was such incredible night. Terrific atmosphere. We wouldn’t have missed seeing our Women’s National Team play right in our backyard for anything in the world. What an amazing way to cap another incredible summer of soccer at Nippert Stadium! It was pretty unbelievable! 😀🇺🇸⚽️🇳🇿❤️

Taken with Instagram.

Good morning…

And good evening…

Taken with Instagram. 😀❤️

It’s what’s for dinner.

This evening Genifer made another one of the Prep+Pared dinners from Kroger. This one was Stuffed Poblano Peppers with black beans and Quinoa

They looked pretty awesome…

And topped with cilantro crema…

And they were delicious! Surprisingly, the peppers weren’t spicy at all. But the stuffing did have a little kick to it. Nothing terrible, just a little zing. I’ve been really impressed with all the Prep+Pared meals. We haven’t had one meal that hasn’t been outstanding. I think we’d be really hard pressed to pick a favorite. They’re all so good. 😀🌶️❤️

Another new milestone!

When it rains, it pours. After setting a new record high for points from my check-ins last week, I reset my personal best with a personal even better this week…

I still really like my check-ins! 😀⭐️❤️
