Social distancing pizza party.

We took delicious Donato’s pizzas and salads out to Geri in West Chester to check on her and make sure she was doing okay in the midst of COVID-19…

She is hanging in there, just like all of us. And the pizzas were delicious. 😀🍕🥗❤️

Panda Express.

So believe it or not, we’ve never eaten at a Panda Express. This afternoon we found ourselves out on the Westside at Western Hills Plaza, and we decided to try Panda Express for the very first time…

It was odd trying a place for the first time during a pandemic. There were blue tape lines on the floor so everyone knew how far to stay apart…

It was our turn to order. And there were so many delicious looking options…

We learned that at Panda Express you choose your meal size: a bowl (1 entree & 1 side), plate (2 entrees & 1 side) OR bigger plate (3 entrees & 1 side). And then you choose your entree and side. Panda Express has a bunch of different entree choices…

Genifer ordered a bowl of the Kung Pao Chicken with fried rice. I ordered a plate with Orange Chicken and Mushroom Chicken with fried rice…

Panda Express was really, really good stuff. I think we just found a new place to stop for lunch whenever we find ourselves over on the Westside. 😀🐼🥡❤️

Working from home: Day 1.

On Friday, Grey Midwest had a trial run of all employees working from home. About half way through the day, it was recommended that all Grey Midwest employees should work from home until further notice. So this morning was the first official day of my working from home. Thankfully, we have our terrific little work space setup on our second floor, and it will finally get put to good use…

I pulled in some dog beds from upstairs and barricaded us in the office…

And I got to have some of my giant Lunchables I got at the grocery for lunch…

Everything worked really well. And it was so nice and quiet. Our internet was able to keep up with all the video conference calls and meetings. The dogs were really good all day. And I continue to make small adjustments to my working from home set-up but I’m really feeling it so far…

It’s definitely not terrible. I think I could get used to working from home. 😀🏡💻❤️

For the time being, Genifer still has to go into the office to work. Hopefully, she’ll be able to work from home soon too.

It was a great Saturday.

This morning started with some coffees from Biggby Coffee

YUM! Biggby has terrific hot chocolate. I love mine with some butterscotch added to it.

After we had our drinks in hand, we stopped at JackRabbit in Obryanville

At last year’s Higher Gravity Spring Grove Beer Gallop, Genifer won a $125  gift certificate towards a brand new running shoes from JackRabbit. And with this year’s Spring Grove Beer Gallop right around the corner, Genifer thought she’d better get some new running shoes…

Genifer got these Brooks running shoes…

These terrific running shoes only cost her $25. And that’s pretty awesome.

Later, we ran out to get lunch at Freddy’s Steakburgers

Ohmigosh. I love Freddy’s Steakburgers….

I think I’ve finally zeroed in on my go-to Freddy’s order. I think it’s going to be the original double. This is the original double with bacon…

But next time and into the future, my order will be just the original double with fries…

I used to get the triple steakburger. Sometimes I could do it. But sometimes, it was a real struggle and it was too much. Freddy’s also has a patty melt that is really good. But it’s not like a traditional patty melt. But it’s still really good.

On our way home for Freddy’s, we stopped in College Hill at Brink Brewing. Brink is one of my favorite Cincinnati breweries…

They have such great beers. Our big beer was a King Cake beer. It was awesome. Brink always has something really interesting on tap.

And that was pretty much our Saturday. We were pretty happy that we actually got out and did something on a Saturday…

And it was a great Saturday.

The dingle is in the house.

This afternoon we drove out to West Chester to have lunch with Geri, Alyssa, Cleve, and Pippa at Dingle House

Dingle House has one of the best fish sammiches around. And somehow, I don’t know that I’ve ever taken a photo of it.

And we dropped our little dingle, Oscar, off at Geri’s so he can stay with grandma while we’re on our trip. He was so excited to be with grandma that he wouldn’t even let me get a “see you later, Oscar” photo. 😀🇮🇪❤️

Happy President’s Day.

Happy President’s Day! We both had the day off work. We used our BOGO coupon again this morning to get more delicious Biggby Coffee

We drove up to Monroe to check out Cincinnati Premium Outlets

They had FC Cincinnati gear at the Adidas store but it wasn’t discounted at all…

We didn’t find much at the Outlets. I got a scarf and a pair of boxers. We started to get hungry so we started to drive back towards Cincinnati and stopped to eat in Liberty Township at FlipSide in Liberty Center

We started with mini corn dogs on a stick…

I love corn dogs! Genifer ordered a hamburger without the bun. I ordered the Say Cheese cheeseburger and put too much mayonnaise on it…

It was a great lunch, the burger was really good and the fries were terrific. And they had this Sir Kensington ketchup that was just out of this world…

After we were done eating lunch, we walked through the shops in Liberty Center…

Genifer got a few things for our upcoming trip. I got a new pair of camo shorts. I’d worn my old camo short out over the last two summers. I’m really happy to have a new pair.

Later, we watched The Forest on Netflix. It was just turrible.

But we had a pretty fun President’s Day. 😀🛍️🍔❤️

Lunch at Django.

We planned to stop at Django Western Taco yesterday for Valentine’s Day. But since we weren’t super hungry, we decide to postpone our visit until this afternoon when we could really do some more damage…

We started with some chips & salsa to start, shared Django’s incredible jerk chicken quesadilla and I also had a fried chicken taco too…

It all made for such a delicious lunch. Unfortunately for us, Django didn’t have any bread pudding today. But they did have churros…

And the churros were DY-NO-MITE!

Lunch at Django is always so very tasty and really inexpensive. We got out of there for just over $20. And you can’t beat that. 😀🌮❤️

It’s what’s for lunch.

Most days, I take lunch with me to work. But if I don’t, there’s usually leftover food from lunch meetings or I’ll just make myself a sammich with the company ham in the kitchen at Grey Midwest. Today, I was having a craving for a warm turkey sammich on a bagel. So I walked over a block to Elm Street…

Bagel Stop in the Enquirer Building!

I got their Signature Turkey Club on a jalapeno bagel, and it was exactly the sammich that I wanted for lunch…

Great sammich! I might have just find my new go-to when I go out to lunch. 😀🦃🥯❤️

A super Sunday.

It was gorgeous outside today for the second day of February. It was in the mid-60s and the sun was out. We took the dogs for a long walk this morning…

Later, we ran out to Walgreens to pick up a prescription where we saw this…

And on the way home, we stopped at Skyline to bring home lunch…

Genifer had a giant burrito…

I got three cheese coneys with extra mustard and no onions and a chilito…

And we shared a slice of red velvet cheesecake…

Later, we took the dogs on another long walk…

And had some snacks before The Big Game™…

Then we watched the Superb Owl. It was a pretty good game and a pretty auper Sunday. 😀🌄🐾🏈❤️

Camp Washington Chili.

After Cincinnati Museum Center, we continued my birthday theme of celebrating with things that are Cincinnati wonderful. And we stopped for lunch at another place that’s older than I am, Camp Washington Chili

I’d had Camp Washington Chili at the Coney Eating Contests on Fountain Square but we’d never been to their restaurant for some reason. We thought we’d change that today for my birthday lunch…

Genifer ordered two chili cheese sammiches…

I ordered a patty melt and a cheese coney and we shared some french fries…

Everything was delicious! And there was so much stuff on their menu that sounded great. I can’t wait to come back to Camp Washington Chili because next time I have to try their 513 Way…

It’s three slabs of goetta topped with chili, beans, onions, and cheese. It doesn’t get much more Cincinnati than that. Before we left, we got a couple of pieces of cake for us to eat later…

Genifer got carrot cake because she loves carrot cake…

And I got chocolate cake for my birthday cake…

What a delicious birthday lunch. Thanks, Camp Washington Chili! 😀🧀🌭🎂❤️

ps. I had a really great birthday. Thanks for all the birthday wishes!
