Hooray for Saturday!

Hooray. It’s Saturday! We were so lazy today…

Good morning from Northside…

We ate cinnamon rolls for breakfast…

And we ate fruit from our Edible Arrangement too. Both were so good…

Speaking of so good, we watched Leicester City drop three goals in seven minutes on Liverpool. And it was awesome.

Later, we ordered lunch from Dragon City through DoorDash

Genifer ordered Pad Thai…

And she got some dumplings too…

I ordered Chicken Egg Foo Young…

I also ordered these chicken teriyaki skewers…

I accidentally took this photo of our ceiling fan…

Good evening from Northside…

It looked exactly like it did this morning…

This evening we watched Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel on Netflix. That show was pretty crazy. But we weren’t crazy. We were just pretty lazy today.

Danny Boy Burgers.

The sunrise was very pretty this morning…

Maybe it was super pretty but it’s the first sunrise we’ve had in a minute in the sea of infinite grey that has been the sky lately…

And even as I was looking at the sunrise, the grey sky was starting to take over…

When we went out on our morning walk, there was no sign of the sun…

Good morning from Northside…

And this evening it was sprinkling. So yeah, good evening from Northside…

For dinner tonight, we ordered Danny Boy Burgers through DoorDash. Danny Boy is the new burger place on the University of Cincinnati’s campus. Apparently, Danny Boy started last year as a virtual kitchen inside of Keystone Bar & Grill, They specialize in hamburgers, Impossible burgers, and crispy golden fries. And their burgers are only available for delivery from DoorDash and carryout…

We were so excited when we were ordering, look at how good that burger looks…

And here’s my Danny Boy Burger and fries…

It was a little shocking when we unwrapped our everything. They were really small burgers. In the photo on DoorDash, they looked so big. But after looking at the photo again, what was shown was pretty accurate. But in the screengrab above if you look at the size of the pickles in comparison to the size of the burger, those are either huge pickles or little burgers. And I think we know which one it was. Still, the burgers were delicious and surprisingly filling. Their fries were outstanding. And so were their shakes. Overall it was good but I don’t know if I would order Danny Boy again. After we were finished eating, we watched Crypto on Hulu. It was okay. We decided that movies about hackers and crypto-currency don’t make for the best plotlines.

Overall, today was a bit disappointing all the way around. But we made it through another day. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸ”πŸŸπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Today was a really good day.

Today was my birthday. Apparently, there was a full moon last night and we could still sort of see it out of our bathroom window this morning…

There were some really pretty clouds this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we ran over to the Kroger Fuel Station to fill up…

We had 80Β’ off per gallon thanks to our Kroger Fuel points…

And then we ran over to Mad Llama for birthday coffee…

JAVA WHIPS!

And it was 29ΒΊ on January 29th…

Good evening from Northside…

Birthday presents!

We had a $10 off coupon from DoorDash so we ordered dinner from China Food

We ordered so much food…

But it was delicious. We can’t wait to order more dinners from China Food.

Later, we watched the Mavs lose to the Jazz. Bummer. And over in the Big Ten, #19 Illinois knocked off #7 Iowa…

Afterward, I saw this on Twitter

And there was this one. 🀣 Poor Sparty. They’re having a rough year. I really miss Michigan basketball. I can’t wait until they’re done with their quarantine.

I had a really wonderful birthday. Especially for being in the middle of a pandemic…

Thank you for all the cards and birthday wishes. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β›½οΈβ˜•οΈπŸŽπŸ₯‘❀️

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. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ§€πŸŒ­πŸπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Just up the road?!

It was another rainy, grey, overcast morning in Northside…

Good morning from Northside…

We ordered Penn Station for lunch today online…

And we ran up Hamilton Avenue into College Hill to pick it up…

Ohmigosh. It smelled so good on the way home. Genifer ordered her favorite chicken teriyaki…

And my favorite is the cheesesteak…

Penn Station is so good. And they have the best fries. When we lived downtown, there was a Penn Station just around the corner from us. We’d get it quite a bit. It was always delicious. Since we moved to Northside, the closest one to us is over on the campus of University of Cincinnati. But getting to it is a pain and the parking is next to impossible. We had no idea this other Penn Station was so close. Now we know this one is literally just up the road from us, we can start getting Penn Station more often again.

And good evening from Northside…

Tonight, we finished season three of Marcella on Netflix. And tomorrow, we have to find another movie or series to start watching. Finding a new series that we can get into is always the most difficult part. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ₯ͺπŸŸπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Tickle Pickle Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

This afternoon we walked to Tickle Pickle for lunch…

When we got home, we were ready to eat our delicious Tickle Pickle. Genifer had her Eagles chicken sammich…

And I had my Bread Zepplin with extra cheese…

Today, we tried Tickle Pickle’s Goetta Van Fleet, their homemade mac & cheese topped with goetta and crushed BBQ Grippos…

We also got a side of their delicious mac & cheese…

And of course, we got milkshakes…

Good evening from Northside…

It turned out to be another pretty low-key day albeit it a very delicious one. We started watching Marcella on Netflix. “Despite marriage woes, a tragic loss, memory blackouts and her struggles as a mom, a London detective excels at what she does best: catching killers.” It’s another really good one. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ”πŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

And seen and noted…

Urban Artifact + Kitchen Factory.

Good morning from Northside…

Day 20 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

Good evening from Northside…

Shannon ordered us some Urban Artifact beers for Christmas. This evening we ran over to UA to pick up our order. We were really excited to see what she got us…

And there’s our order…

On our way back home, we stopped to pick up dinner from The Kitchen Factory

When we got home with our dinner, the sunset looked so pretty from our backyard…

And tben it was back to our dinner from Kitchen Factory…

Genifer ordered their Veggie Meatball Hoagie…

I ordered the Baked Chicken Pesto Hoagie…

We both ordered the pasta salad as our side. And it came in a condiment container…

It was less of a side and more of a mouthful of pasta salad. Still, it was really good. We just wished there was more of it. We also ordered a side of their Famous Vegan Mac & Cheese…

Our dinner was sooo good. The hoagies were amazing! We’ll definitely be ordering from Kitchen Factory again. We’ll have to order a couple of their pizzas sometime as well.

Genifer made some incredible seven-layer bars for dessert…

Now that our bellies are full, let’s take a look to see what Shannon got us…

Wow! Those sound like some delicious beers! We placed them under our Christmas tree. And we can’t wait to try them! Thanks, Shannon!

We’ve been watching Mindhunter on Netflix. It’s about the origins of the FBI’s Behavioral Sciences Unit in the late ’70s. It’s been a really good show so far.

And we had a really good Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸΊπŸ₯ͺπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

A Wednesday NYPD Pizza party!

There were more altocumulcus clouds hovering over Northside this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

And it was time for day nine of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

The sun actually came out today…

And then we had the ultra rare Wednesday NYPD Pizza party

We ordered a large Station House supremiumβ„’ pizza…

And Nightsticks with extra cheese…

NYPD Pizza parties are so good. Especially on Wednesdays. They never happen on Wednesdays. And after we were done eating all our pizza, we headed upstairs…

We watched Michigan thump Toledo and Xavier thump Oklahoma. Both teams won by exactly 20 points. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸ•πŸΎπŸ“ΊπŸ€β€οΈ

NYPD + MNUFC.

Good morning from Northside…

I’ve been having hot chocolate almost every morning. Most of the time, it’s in one of our #TeamFiona mugs

Once I had my cocoa, it was time for day three of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

The Lego City Advent Calendar has been pretty cool so far.

Good evening from Northside…

And tonight, we had an NYPD Pizza party!

It’s been a minute since we’ve had an NYPD Pizza party

We ordered cheese garlic bread but they gave us an order of Nightsticks instead and they were really good…

And then we had to get upstairs…

Because tonight was the second round of the MLS Cup Playoffs. My Minnesota United was playing away to Sporting Kansas City, the top-seed in the Western Conference…

United scored three goals in twelve minutes, and knocked Sporting out of the MLS Cup playoffs of the MLS Cup Playoffs…

Minnesota United will play Seattle Sounders on Monday in the Western Conference finals…

What a match! It was an amazing end to a terrific day. But any day that includes an NYPD Pizza party and a MNUFC Loons win is a really good day on our blog. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜•οΈπŸ•βš½οΈπŸ†β€οΈ

Our Election Day.

We got up extra early this morning to walk over to North Presbyterian Church on Hamilton Avenue in Northside so Genifer could vote…

I dropped off my absentee ballot at the Board of Elections last week.

The polls opened at 6:30am this morning. We got there just a little before 6:00am and Genifer was second in line…

As we stood waiting for the polls to open, the line steadily grew behind us…

Genifer got to cast her vote. And we were over at Sidewinder to get coffee by 6:45am…

Sidewinder had cinnamon rolls this morning too…

My office was closed today for the election so everyone could vote. And Genifer had a pretty light day with her work. So later, we walked back down Hamilton Avenue to Blue Jay for lunch…

Genifer had a five-way and fries for lunch…

And I had Blue Jay’s chicken tender sammich with cheese…

I love that dang sammich. Blue Jay is so good. We don’t eat there enough.

We enjoyed the rest of our Election Day by not doing much of anything. We played in our backyard for a bit…

And we went on our evening walk around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner, I ate a carry out five-way and a cheese coney I got from Blue Jay…

This evening we went out of our way to avoid any news about the Election. I don’t think we’re going to know the final results any time soon. I just hope everything turns out for the best and that competent adults start running the country again. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ—³οΈβ˜•οΈπŸπŸŒ­β€οΈ
