Hello from Northside.

They were working on our street this morning…

The sun was trying to come out to play…

Good morning from Northside…

Our first HelloFresh meal of the week was One-Pan Sweet Chili Turkey Lettuce Wrap with bell pepper and candied peanuts…

It was so tasty. We love the HelloFresh meals. After dinner, it got kind of overcast…

Good evening from Northside…

It was really weird not having an Olympics to watch this evening. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

The Olympics are over.

This morning we ran over to the grocery…

They had the panda and train on-shelf today…

And we stopped for coffee…

When we got home, we took the dogs round the block…

Good morning from Northside…

We ate this sausage alfredo flatbread for lunch…

Our HelloFresh arrived today…

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner, we ordered takeout from China Food…

China Food is so good. And then we sat out of our back patio and watched the end of the Olympics.

After 16 days, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics came to a close. The USA volleyball team won gold in the final event of the games to top China in the gold medal count and finish on top of the overall medal overall. The USA secured 21 overall medals in the final weekend to finish out the Olympic spectacle with 25 more medals than any other country. Itโ€™s been an exciting two weeks of lasting Olympic memories. And the pageantry of closing ceremonies was a spectacle of its own.

But between the time difference, repetitive programming, and the endless re-airing of events, these Olympics were the most exhausting, challenging and frustrating to try to watch. And while NBC tried to create an immersive and watchable experience, the modern world of social media shattered the old model of replaying and re-airing events.

Luckily for us fans of the Olympics, there are two positives about the next go-around. There’s only a three-year wait until the Paris Games. And they should provide an daytime schedule of live events. No matter what happens in 2024, it canโ€™t get much worse than the much-missed Tokyo spectacle.

Still, we did the best we could to enjoy the heck out the Tokyo games. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ•๐Ÿฅก๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿ†โค๏ธ

We had a pretty low-key Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We got lunch from NYPD…

I forgot to take a photo of our lunch. I think we ordered hoagie sammiches.

Good evening from Northside…

And we watched Minnesota United beat Houston 2-0

And then we watched the last full day of the Olympics. It’s hard to believe they’re almost over already. But we sure have enjoyed watching them.

And we just had a pretty low-key Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฅช๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ“บโšฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

Please send noods.

Good morning from Northside…

After we were done with work, we walked down to Gulow Street…

If you couldn’t tell, we like Gulow Street a lot…

Tonight, we both got noodles or as we like to call them: noods. Genifer ordered the Sesame Noods.

And I ordered the rigatoni bolognese noods with garlic bread…

Gulow Street has delicious, delicious noods. On the way home, we stopped to sit on the patio at Northside Tavern….

And then we went to home take the dogs around the block…

Gulow Street Friday nights are the best. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ๐Ÿฅก๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Our Wednesday.

Our HelloFresh meal this evening was Kickin’ Sheet Pan Orange BBQ Porkloaves with cheesy potato wedges and roasted broccoli…

We watched FC Cincinnati play to yet another scoreless draw. And that was pretty much our Wednesday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

It’s kind of Taco Tuesday.

Good morning from Northside…

Mack and Oscar were drinking out of the same water bowl again…

Our second HelloFresh meal of the week was One-Pan Portobello and Poblano Fajitas with pico de gallo and smoky red pepper crema…

So it was kind of Taco Tuesday…

This meal was another delicious one. But it was the spiciest HelloFresh meal we’ve had yet. We actually had to stop eating a couple of times to let our mouths cool off a bit.

Good evening from Northside…

We had a pretty good Tuesday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿ”ฅโค๏ธ

Two HelloFresh meals in one day?

Good morning from Northside…

We had one of our HelloFresh meals leftover from last week. So we had Brown Sugar Bourbon Chicken Salad with kale, apples, roasted carrots, sunflower seeds and honey dijon dressing…

After work, I ran over to the Kroger by our house to grab a couple of things. And look at the huge balloon options the neighborhood Kroger had…

For dinner tonight, we had our first HelloFresh dinner of the week. This one was One-Pan Trattoria Tortellini Bake with a crispy parmesan panko topping…

It was delicious especially since we added garlic bread to the meal…

The HelloFresh meals are so good.

Good evening from Northside…

I could get used to eating two HelloFresh meals every day. It made our Monday really very tasty. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฅ—๐Ÿ๐Ÿฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โค๏ธ

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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿง€๐ŸŒญ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿโค๏ธ
