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. 😀🍕❤️

Summer Hours: Rusty Bucket

Today’s Summer Hours were some rainy ones…

Genifer had a doctor’s appointment in Hyde Park and then we planned to go to Island Frydays in Corryville but with all the rain we decided just to get some lunch at Rusty Bucket in Rookwood instead…

We’ll go to Island Frydays on the next Summer Hours when it isn’t pouring down rain.
😀🌧️☂️

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. 😀🐔🍔🌭🏡🌳❤️

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!
😀🐔🔥❤️

Summer hours: Django Western Taco.

Deskey lets us work just a half-day every other Friday throughout the summer. They
call them Summer Hours. And they’re pretty flippin’ awesome. Today was my first Summer Hours Friday. We didn’t plan ahead very well, and couldn’t come up with anything fun to do. So when I got home, I worked on organizing the office for a bit while I watched the France versus Sweden World Cup qualifier. Olivier Giroud had an amazing goal for France. As for the office, it still has quite a ways to go but at least I know where more stuff is now. I’ll keep plugging away at working on it…

While I was organizing, I found two $25 gift cards that I apparently misplaced. I also found a gift certificate that still had a balance to Django Western Taco. And there’s no better time than the present to redeem that gift certificate for some delicious Django Western Taco goodness

Genifer ordered a carne asada taco and she loves Django’s salsa…

Django’s special today was corn on the cob with chipotle aioli and shredded cheese…

And of course, I ordered their amazing chicken biscuit…

It’s one of my favorite dishes around. Just look at that delicious mess…

Django also had a watermelon beer from Lost Coast on tap that was out of this world! I’m really happy we couldn’t come up with something to do earlier. Next Summer Hours, I think we’re going to go check out Island Frydays in Corryville. 🙂

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. 😀🍔🌭❤️

Happy National Doughnut Day!

Today was National Doughnut Day! And miraculously, two big boxes of delicious Holtman’s Donuts showed up in our office this morning!

And there was also a sizeable assortment of doughnuts from Marcella’s

Why can’t every day be National Doughnut Day? 😁 🍩 😍 ❤️

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! 😀 🍔 🌭 ❤️

 

Taco Tuesday.

It was Taco Tuesday again at Silverglades Deli on Eighth Street…

I love tacos. I’ve really been digging on the hard-shell tacos lately. 😀 🌮 🌮 🌮 ❤️

Taste of Cincinnati 2017.

This afternoon we went drove downtown to check out Taste of Cincinnati 2017…

unnamed

We got to park for free in Deskey’s parking lot on Eighth Street and just walk a couple blocks down to Fifth Street so that made things extraordinarily easy. Not as easy as when we used to live downtown, but still pretty dang easy. To accommodate that silly Streetcar Cincinnati Bell Connector, this year’s Taste of Cincinnati started at Main Street and continued east down Fifth Street to Sentinel Street ending with Taste of Findlay Market and Fodd Truck Alley. Let’s get to Tasting…

We almost started our Taste with Northside’s Tickle Pickle but they’re right around the corner from our house. We just vowed to get their delicious burgers next week…

We tried the Taste of Cincinnati signature cocktail in a souvenir glass…

Tasty and refreshing. Southwest now flies to CVG! Southwest had a booth at Taste and had people silk-screening bags on demand. We had to get a Taste of Cincinnati bag…

And they were giving away packets of airline peanuts and pretzels. Nice touch! 🙂

Genifer’s all set now with her signature cocktail and her Official Taste of Cincinnati bag…

Across the way, LL Bean had this bootmobile…

More than 550,000 people visited this year’s Taste of Cincinnati over the 3-day festival. Gorgeous weather all weekend undoubtedly played a part bringing people out…

Nathan’s had their famous mustard belt on hand…

We had some amazing jerk chicken and rice from Island Frydays…

Stella Artois had a cool retro airstream at Taste…

We had an incredible empanada in the Taste of Findlay Market. But it was so delicious, I forgot to take a photo of it…

It’s 5 am somewhere…

These little stacking stools by Gateway Fountain would be awesome on our patio…

Food Truck Alley was without a doubt the busiest area at Taste while we were there…

We got a delicious Bee Sting from C’est Cheese…

And we got to see our friend Emily!

We could have spent the rest of the afternoon just eating our way through Food Truck Alley with Red Sesame, Just Jerks, Alabama Fish Bar and Texas Joe just to name a few. But it was so crowded in Food Truck Alley that it was hard to move. So we made our way out and got some Thai Taste Crab Rangoons because I love Crab Rangoons…

This kid’s contraption was genius…

The Bud Bar was back at Taste…

We climbed up top to take in the view from the roof…

In this photo, there are not one but TWO monkey-leash-backpacks…

One of the best parts of our Taste were the VIP passes from CincinnatiUSA.com which gave us access to the VIP area. It was a lifesaver for a place to sit in the shade, catch your breath and enjoy a complimentary bottle of ice cold water…

It was another amazing Taste of Cincinnati. The only problem is you get full way too fast. We can’t wait to see you again next year Taste of Cincinnati.  🙂

Oh! And I almost forgot… We got these amazing refrigerator magnets from Cincy Shirts booth at Taste as well: #TeamFiona and a Cincinnati 3-Way

Celebrate the 513! 🙂

Northside Sunday.

We went to Django Western Taco for a late brunch today. We shared the buttermilk biscuit with redeye chorizo gravy and fried eye, Chef Josh’s famous tater tot casserole and a side of bacon topped with ancho chile honey…

And it was delicious. As always. Also, Chef Josh said that Django Western Taco has some really big news coming very soon so we can’t wait for his big announcement!  After we stuffed our faces at Django, we walked over to Urban Artifact for a beer or two…

We had the very last pint of the Palmistry and a couple of Finn’s…

We love Northside so much. 😀 ❤️

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. 🙂

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made honey sriracha chicken again for dinner tonight…

And it was delicious! 🙂

Two goals = half-priced pizzas.

When FC Cincy scores two goals, Papa John’s offers half-priced pizzas the next day! So this evening, we got a Papa John’s pizza and some cheese sticks…

YUM! Half-priced pizza sure is delicious! 😀 ❤️ ⚽️ 🍕
