Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Today, we remember the legacy of a great man. We honor The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr… a man who dared to dream while standing fearlessly in the face of adversity. We celebrate the man who taught us to dream while still loving others…

โ€œWe may have all come on different ships, but weโ€™re in the same boat now.โ€

โ€œAn individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.โ€

โ€œLove is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.โ€

โ€œOnly in the darkness can you see the stars.โ€

โ€œEverybody can be great โ€ฆ because anybody can serve. You donโ€™t have to have a college degree to serve. You donโ€™t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.โ€

Martin Luther King Jr.

We both had the day off work today for the holiday. It was a cold and snowy day…

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made cheesy buffalo chicken pasta with garlic bread for lunch…

Good evening from Northside…

I realized when we got to the stairs at the top of the hill at the end of our street that I had forgotten my little fisheye Moment lens

Today, we watched Arsenal beat Newcastle 3-0. And we watched the MLK Day NBA games especially the Grizzlies win over the Suns. I like the Griz. I think they have the best logo in the NBA. It was a very nice day off. And another very low-key, relaxing day. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”โšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ€โค๏ธ

Ohhh… Epic tacos!

There were still snow flurries this morning…

And it was still cold and grey…

Good morning from Northside…

We ventured out to try something new this afternoon, Agave & Rye in Rookwood…

We started with some chips and guacamole…

Genifer loves guacamole…

And it was really good at Agave & Rye. We also started with the elotte…

And we each had an epic taco. Genifer had The Buddha: teriyaki 5-spice tofu, sticky rice, baby corn, water chestnuts, cilantro, green onion, carrots, red bell pepper, Shiitake mushrooms, crispy wontons, sweet thai chili sauce…

I love ground beef tacos. And they’re kind of hard to find out. Agave & Rye had two on their menu. So this time I ordered The Cousin of Vinnie: seasoned ground beef, tomato-vodka sauce, mac n cheese, white cheddar, tobacco onions and queso cushion in between the two taco shells…

Next time, I’ll try the other ground beef taco. Their tacos were amazing and huge. And they had a bunch of interesting sounding tacos on their menu.

Everything we ordered was delicious…

Agave & Rye had a whole bunch of arcade game that would have been fun to play…

But we’re still in the middle of a pandemic and I didn’t want to touch anything…

Agave & Rye was incredible. Everything was delicious. Their tacos were huuuuge. And we left so stuffed. I think we just found our new favorite taco shop now that Django Western Taco has moved out of Northside.

When we got home, we took the dogs out around the block…

And it was still cold…

Good evening from Northside…

We ended up taking a nap. And later, we watched the NFL playoff games…

I was happy to see Tom Brady win. I was sad to see Drew Brees lose. And I thought the refs jobbed the Browns. How did they miss this helmet-to-helmet hit? Most likely, it cost the Browns a touchdown and they would end up losing by 5 points. Next weekend, I’ll be cheering for Brady and the Bills. Because nothing would be worse than a State Farm Superb Owl with Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes. I don’t really care for either of them very much.

But anyway, we had a really great day with some epic tacos! ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ„๏ธ๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿˆโค๏ธ

A cold & snowy Saturday.

It was a could and snowy morning in Northside…

Good morning from Northside…

We went over to the grocery this morning. It counts as our Saturday activity…

Both the panda and train were on the shelf today…

And the football balloons still dominated the balloons…

And then we got coffees from Mad Llama

JAVA WHIPS!

After that we were pretty lazy…

We still had some flurries this evening…

Good evening from Northside…

You can see the snowflakes on Mack’s head…

We had a Kroger flatbread pizza for lunch with Caesar salad. It was really good. Somehow, I didn’t take a photo of it. I don’t remember what we had for dinner.

But we had tiramisu for dessert…

Michigan got thumped by Minnesota. And we watched Outside the Wire on Netflix. It was pretty good. We had another good pandemic Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒจ๏ธโ„๏ธ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

It’s Skyline time!

This morning it was really overcast, dark and rainy. Good morning from Northside…

But by lunchtime, the sun was out…

We ran over to St. Bernard for lunch and we saw this funny looking truck…

We picked up some Skyline for lunch…

It’s Skyline time!

Skyline is so good. Genifer had a deluxe burrito. I had a 5-way and two cheese coneys while I finished up my work for the week. And then it was overcast again when we went on our evening week…

Good evening from Northside…

We shared our Cinnabon cheesecake we got with our lunch…

Then we headed upstairs for the night and we finished Collateral: Limited Series on Netflix. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿง€๐ŸŒญ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Thursdays are for pizza!

Good morning from Northside…

Mack and Oscar hung out with my in our studio office for most of the day…

We listened to Arsenal draw with Crystal Palace this afternoon. And then we went out on our evening walk around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

Thursdays are for NYPD Pizza parties

NYPD Pizza is so delicious. And so inexpensive. We love Thursday pizza nights. Genifer made little chocolate chip banana bread puddings for dessert…

They were really good. It was another delicious Thursday.

Tonight, we watched the first two episodes of Collateral: Limited Series on Netflix.
๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพโšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Hello from Northside.

The sun was so pretty this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

Mack keeps migrating a lot of the dog toys to our studio office…

And for some reason, most of the toys always accumulate here.

It was a very pretty evening too…

Genifer made pork chops with sriracha Brussels sprouts for dinner…

She always finds the best recipes to make. Tonight, we finished Lupin. We hope there are more episodes coming sometime soon. It was a pretty good show. And today was another pretty good day. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

Have you tried The Fiamma?!

After the Arsenal’s FA Cup match this afternoon, we headed over to get some pizza at Taft’s Brewpourium

Taft’s had Hazelnut Latte, their coffee stout made with Cincinnati’s own Deeper Roots coffee, on draft…

We ordered The Fiamma again

And we tried Taft’s cheesy bread…

We also tried Main Squeeze Vol. One. with pink guava and lactose…

And we got their Hazelnut Latte sticky bread to go…

Everything was just as delicious as always. We used part of the gift card my parent’s gave us for Christmas. We put $30 on our gift card this time. And we’ll get to use it two more times! Thanks, mom & dad!

On our way out to the car, we saw a train. I could probably watch the trains go by all day. I love the graffiti on the train cars…

Good evening from Northside…

Tonight, I logged my 80,000th check-in on my Swarm

I stillย reallyย like my check-ins on Swarm!

And we kept watching Manhunt: Unabomber on Netflix. Any day we get to go to Taft’s Brewpourium is a pretty good day. We like that place a lot. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ•๐Ÿบ๐Ÿš‚โญ๏ธโค๏ธ

Cheers to the weekend!

Good morning from Northside…

It was so grey and overcast today. It looked more like a Monday instead of a Friday…

Genifer made chicken marinated in Trader Joe’s Island Soyaki with pinto beans and rice for lunch today…

It was a really delicious lunch!

We finally made it through our work week after our long holiday break.

And it was still overcast this evening…

Good evening from Northside…

We had some drinks this evening. We tried a couple of the Urban Artifact beers Shannon gave us for Christmas. First, we tried the Epicurean Reindeer Pickle. It was described on Untappd as A Christmas dill pickle gose with peanuts and a peanut butter and pickle sandwich. Sounds pretty interesting.

It was really good. And exactly as described… a peanut butter and pickle sandwich.

And we tried their Xmas Pickle. It was described as a Holiday Xmas Pickle Miracle

And it was really good as well. Very pickle! Thanks, Shannon! We can’t wait to try the other beers you gave us.

We also these little sour shots that we picked up a gas station in West Chester. They’d been in our refrigerator for a while now…

The grape was the best flavor. It was actually pretty tasty.

And it finally happened…

Finally. And all it took was trying to incite an unruly mob to rush the Capital and try to overthrow our democratic republic. Hopefully, the world will be a little bit better place for a while. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿบ๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿšซโค๏ธ

Thursday NYPD Pizza party!

Good morning from Northside…

Oscar’s been hanging out with me in our studio office while I’ve been working…

Good evening from Northside…

Time for our weekly Thursday evening NYPD Pizza party

Ohmigosh. Our NYPD pizza and cheese garlic bread was so good.

This evening we started watching Manhunter: Unabomber on Netflix. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Well played December 37th.

Good morning from Northside…

The scene at the Capitol today was just disgusting…

Ugh. January 20th can’t come soon enough. I’m ready for all this mess to be over and for the racists and white supremacists to crawl back under their rocks. This isn’t how America should be.

For dinner tonight, we had Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken

Ohmigosh. The Mandarin Orange Chicken is so good. And we had delicious pot sticker dumplings too…

For dessert, we had these giant Carol’s Cookies that JJVE sent us as part of our terrific Christmas present…

And they were as delicious as they were huge! Thanks again, JJVE!

Good evening from Northside…

Hopefully better days are on the horizon. ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿคฌ๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฅก๐ŸฅŸ๐Ÿชโค๏ธ
