Happy National Chili Dog Day!

After I was done volunteering at the Cincinnati Zoo, I walked about 1.2 miles from the zoo over to Skyline Chili in the Clifton Gaslight District for lunch. On my way, I walked by this great community garden…

And this City Barn…

And before I knew it, I was at Skyline in Clifton…

HAPPY NATIONAL CHILI DOG DAY TO ME! Yep. It’s an actual thing

Skyline is delicious! After my lunch, I hopped on the Metro 17 bus and came home.
😀🧀🌭❤️

Slow down and grill.

And look at all those beautiful, out-of-focus dogs…

Ohmigosh. Why does everything taste sooo good when it comes off the grill? 😀🍔🌭❤️

Slow down and grill.

We grilled up a whole bunch of goodness this afternoon…

And Genifer made a delicious watermelon and feta salad…

Why does everything always taste better when it comes from the grill? 😀🌭🐔🍉❤️

We ate this.

I made myself another sammich at work for lunch today…

It’s pretty awesome to be able to just go and make yourself a sammich when you get hungry. And not have to run out and get something for lunch.

Then we had Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken and potstickers for dinner…

Yum. 😀🥪🥡❤️

USWNT at Taft’s Brewpourium.

This afternoon we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium to watch the USWNT’s World Cup group match against Chile…

USWNT won 3-0 and the pizza was as delicious as always. 😀⚽️🏆🍕❤️

We ate this.

At work, there are two entire refrigerators that are stocked full of different food items for everyone to enjoy. They almost always have a bunch of different loaves of bread, cheeses, ham and/or turkey. And today, I made myself first sammich I made with the company lunch meat at Grey Midwest

It’s pretty cool. And pretty brilliant. If you give your employees access to a bunch of different food stuffs, they’ll make themselves something to eat and get back to work instead of running out and taking a long lunch. Pretty clever.

And then we had spaghetti and garlic bread for dinner…

I love spaghetti and garlic bread. 😀🥪🍝❤️

Dream big & Fly high.

I ran out to get something for lunch. (I got a caesar salad from MidiCi at Race and Sixth Streets. It was really good.) On my way back to the office, I noticed this new-to-me mural for the very first time…

I don’t if it’s really a true mural though. It kind of looked like it was painted on board or some sort of substrate and then mounted to the building’s facade. Nonetheless, it’s pretty neat. 😀🖌️🎨🐷❤️

It’s what’s for lunch.

I went out to lunch today to Taste of Belgium in The Banks with some coworkers. And I had this grilled ham and cheese sammich that was a lunch feature…

It was ham with Gruyère, Havarti, goat cheese, caramelized apples & shallots, and béchamel, whatever that is. And it was amazing! That’s all. It was just an amazing, amazing sammich. 😀🥪❤️

Taco Tuesday!

It was Taco Tuesday today for lunch from Silverglades Deli on Eighth

I’m really going to miss Silverglades. It’s been one of my go-to lunch spots for a long time. I don’t know how often I’m going to get back over here. 😀🌮❤️

Best laid plans.

We had a whole entire day of Cincinnati sports planned today. A couple of weeks ago, we bought Fioptics District tickets for today’s afternoon Reds game. And then after the Reds game, we were going to ride the Metro 17 bus up to tonight’s FC Cincinnati match. Before the Reds game, we stopped to eat lunch at The Pony

And look what they still had on draft…

BELL’S MANGO HABANERO OBERON!

The Pony is such a great little place…

We shared a chicken finger basket. Their chicken fingers are just out of this world…

And we shared their delicious chicken wing dip…

It was remarkably similar to Genifer’s buffalo chicken dip. But it was served with Frito’s instead of tortilla chips. I really liked it with Frito’s. I liked it a lot. Genifer also got the very last of the Bell’s Mango Habanero Oberon…

While we were eating, it would alternate between being sunny outside and then a few minutes later it would be pouring down rain. We were watching the Reds Twitter for any updates, And as we were getting ready to head down towards the ballpark, this tweet popped up…

The start of the Reds game was delayed. And then there was this tweet that popped up a little while later…

Bummer. You know what they say about best-laid plans, right? At least we got a really good lunch out of it at The Pony. 😀🐴🌧️⚾️❤️
