A pretty good Wednesday.

Good morning from Northside…

Our final Hello Fresh meal this week was Street-Cart-Style Chicken Shawarma Bowls with bell pepper, pistachio rice and creamy cilantro sauce…

We went three-for-three again on our HelloFresh meals this week. They were all delicious. And we still haven’t had a meal that was even just mediocre, let alone bad. Two thumbs up.

A random Bird scooter found it’s way to the corner of our street…

Good evening from Northside…

And here are a few photos from our sunny side yard…

We had a pretty good Wednesday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

We finally finished it.

It was a rainy Tuesday morning…

We took the dogs on a walk once it stopped raining…

Good morning from Northside…

Mack brings me random dog toys throughout the day…

Our HelloFresh meal tonight was Chicken Sausage-Stuffed Zucchini Boats with couscous, tomato and herbs…

Ohmigosh. It was delicious. This evening the sun came out…

Good morning from Northside…

There was a little bunny at the bottom of the hill…

And tonight, we finally finished Game of Thrones. We’ve powering through all eight seasons, usually with three episodes a night. That show what seriously stressful. We were worried about the ending. We heard people were upset about it. But it kind of wrapped everything up with a neat little bow. It was a really good show but we’re pretty glad it’s over. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

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

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

Sloppy Josephs are good.

Good morning from Northside…

Our HelloFresh meal tonight was Old-School BBQ Pork Sloppy Joes with pickled onion, potato wedges and chipotle ranch…

Sloppy Joes are so good. So good in fact that I completely forgot to take a photo of my Sloppy Joe before I inhaled it. And it was delicious.

Good evening from Northside…

We watched a bunch more Olympics tonight. We’ve really been enjoying them. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ†โค๏ธ

Today was a hot one.

Good morning form Northside…

It was a hot one today…

Our first HelloFresh meal of the week was Jalapeno Business Bacon Mac & Cheese with with crispy breading topping…

Holy geez. Every single one of these meals is delicious. I would definitely eat this one at least once a week. It was so good.

And good evening from Northside…

We were watching more of the Olympics tonight. We couldn’t locate the remote after the coverage concluded. And while we were looking for it, we were subjected to the local news…

Apparently, it’s going to be hot on Thursday as well. But oppressive? Really? There wasn’t another word they could have used? We were reminded again that there’s a reason we don’t watch any of the local news broadcasts.

And I recently tallied my 81,000th check-in on my Swarm

It was good Monday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒก๏ธ๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Saturdays are the best.

Good morning from Northside…

For lunch, we had our last HelloFresh meal of the week. This one was Sesame Soy Pork Bowls with sriracha mayo, cilantro and crispy onions…

These meals are delicious. This was one was no exception. But it was a little on the spicy side. It was the first one that we had to take breaks from eating because it was so spicy. Still, it was delicious.

Good evening from Northside…

We walked back down to Gulow Street for some noodles…

Genifer order some Sesame Noodles…

And I ordered the Rigatoni Bolognese with garlic bread…

And I love garlic bread. Ohmigosh. We love Gulow Street so much. Everything is so good. We’re so happy they decided to become part of our Northside.

And later, we watched the Olympics in our backyard…

I forgot to take a photo of our projector set-up this evening. I think our set-up is pretty cool. I love the weekends when we can sit out on our patio and enjoy our backyard. And Saturdays are the best. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿ†โค๏ธ
