Mondays are better with pizza.

Mondays are better when they end with pizza. Especially when it’s a huge half cheese and half pepperoni pizza and NoNo BBQ wings from Chameleon pizza

YUM! And all of a sudden, the Monday right after the spring forward portion of daylight savings time isn’t so bad.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Preseason FC Cincinnati soccer.

FC Cincinnati finally returned to Nippert Stadium this afternoon in preseason form. FC Cincy was playing host to the USL’s Sacramento Republic FC. Did I mention it was at Nippert Stadium? Last Saturday, FC|C played host to Nashville SC at University of Cincinnati’s Gettler Stadium.ย Gettler Stadium is the home for both the UC men’s and women’s soccer teams, as well as the men’s and women’s outdoor track and field teams. We had tickets to last week’s friendly but skipped it and adopted a dog instead. With today’s friendly being played in the friendly confines of beautiful Nippert Stadium, how could we stay away? FC Cincinnati soccer is back at Nippert! Let’s go!

In what has become a prematch tradition dating back to the beginning of last season, we stopped at Mac’s Pizza Pubย in Clifton before the match to get some lunch and watch UC’s basketball game against Memphisย in the semi-finals of the American Athletic Conference tournament. Mac’s was packed full of Bearcat fans cheering on their basketball team. I don’t really care for the Bearcats basketball program much at all but the atmosphere was pretty infectious, the food was just great as always and the draft beers were only $1 during the Bearcats basketball game…

Just look at that monster of a burger…

After the Bearcat’s punched their ticket to the championship game, we walked over to Nippert Stadium for FC|C preseason soccer…

We spent the first half standing in the sun behind The Bailey. It felt really nice when you were in the sun…

We spent the second half of the match watching from behind our season ticket seats. And it was pretty darn chilly when you weren’t in the sun. FC CINCINNATI GOAL!!!

Both Genifer and I missed FC Cincy’s goal. And there wasn’t any video so no replay…

Bummer. Did I mention it was pretty chilly when you weren’t in the sun?

And the match ended 2-1 to Sacramento

It was really great to be back at Nippert watching some FC Cincinnati soccer again.The team looked pretty good. With FC|C signing 17 new players in the offseason and with only 9 returning players, I imagine there are still so kinks to be worked out trying to get the team toย gel. We can’t wait for FC Cincinnati’s home opener on April 7th at 7pm against Lousiville City FC. Hopefully, it’ll be a little bit warmer in a few weeks. But I’m not going to hold my breath.ย ๐Ÿ˜€โšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ”ถ๐Ÿ”ทโค๏ธ

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made another one of the delicious Prep+Pared meal kits for dinner tonight. This meal kit was forย coconut curry chicken with lemongrass chutney, toasted rice and green beans

And this one was delicious too! We’ve really enjoyed all the Kroger Pre+Pared meal kits from Kroger, except for one.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅฅ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ›โค๏ธ

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made delicious slow-cooker beef stew for dinner tonight…

And it was really delicious.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿœโค๏ธ

Apple Spice boxed lunch.

There were a handful of leftover boxed lunches from Apple Spice after some meetings in our building today. I grabbed an extra Chicken Club boxed lunch…

The Chicken Club sammich was really tasty and the lunch came with a bag of chippers, a pickle, cookie and an Andes mint…

As far as boxed lunches go, it was a really good boxed lunch.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅช๐Ÿฅ’๐Ÿชโค๏ธ

Post Office Place.

This afternoon we met our friends Scott and Kathy and their kiddos Grace and Sam at Post Office Place ย (POP for short) in Columbia Tusculum for lunch…

And that’s the last photo I took.ย ๐Ÿ˜•ย We got to chit-chatting and eating and I completely forgot to snap any more photos. We shared POP’s Garlic Herb Bruschetta Goat Cheese Dip with pita bread which was awesome. We also tried some of their Buffalo POP Wings and weย shared an East End Classic pizza withย pepperoni, onions, green and red peppers, mushrooms and black olives on a classic red sauce. And those were really good too! Afterward, we stopped at Streetside for a beer. The next photo I took was of the Girl Scout cookies Grace delivered to us…

It was a fun afternoon. Sorry I completely blanked on taking photos of POP. It’s a really fun place with great food. If you next yourself in Columbia Tusculum, be sure to give them a try!ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ”๐Ÿบ๐Ÿชโค๏ธ

We run on Dunkin.

Genifer was out of K-Cups so I picked some up from Dunkin Donuts on Court Street on the way home and I also brought home some Munchkins…

It’s been a little while since I’ve had me some Munchkins and they were every bit as good as I remember them. They sayย that “America runs on Dunkin.โ„ข” And this weekend, so will we.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฉโ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

Chameleon pizza.

We ordered another delicious Chameleon pizza and wings for dinner tonight…

Now they’ll do a half pepperoni and half cheese pizza…

We also got a ranch and spicy garlic sauce for dipping…

Their pizza and wings are soooo good.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

It’s Skyline time.

It was Skyline Time for lunch today! YUM!ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿง€๐ŸŒญโค

Keep an eye on your email.

Because someone might bring some delicious Holtman’s Donuts into the office…

And if you don’t see the email right away, this is what happens…

All the really good Holtman Donuts will beย gone. And you’ll only have three donuts to choose from. And it will make you so sad.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿ˜ญโค๏ธ

    Scarves are the one thing I don't mind wearing. New toys. New bed. Sitting on the arm of the office sofa watching out the window for squirrels in our backyard.
