Hello from Northside.

It was a really pretty morning…

Good morning from Northside…

This afternoon the sky started getting kind of dark…

We started another week of HelloFresh meals. Our first meal this week Kung Pao Chicken with sweet Szechuan sauce with peanuts & jasmine rice…

It was another really delicious dinner. We like the HelloFresh meals a lot. It rained while we were eating but it looked like it stopped long enough to make it around the block…

We had a really good Wednesday. We started watching Game of Thrones on HBO Max. (Welcome to the party, pal!) And now we can see what all the buzz what about now. That show is craaaazy. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ₯‘🌧️❀️

In my Timehop were these pictures of Svensk…

She loved sitting in the window in our apartment and watching the world go by…

We miss the kitty.

Tuesday is burger night!

After the wonderful long holiday weekend, we had to get back to work…

Good morning from Northside…

We made it through our Tuesday. And then we walked back down to Gulow Street

During happy hour on Tuesdays, Gulow Street has a burger and draft beer special for $10.

But we figured out you can also get a burger, a Tito’s & soda, a High Life and a bag of chips all for just $13.75…

Their burgers are pretty amazing for $6.50. We ate our burgers and finished our drinks and walked home to take the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

It was a very pretty evening…

We had a great Tuesday. We really like Gulow Street burger night. I think that just became a standing thing.

And here are some doggo photos from my Timehop today…

Just a low-key Monday.

We both had today off work…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery this morning…

I always like to check out the different balloons…

And then it was time for coffee…

Later, we had sausages and pasta salad for lunch…

Good evening from Northside…

We got some NYPD calzones for dinner…

It had been a minute since we had NYPD calzones. They were so good. We both ate our entire calzone. And then we hung out in our backyard for a bit…

It was a pretty nice, very low-key Monday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŽˆπŸŒ­πŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

Happy Fourth of July!

Good morning from Northside…

People were shooting off a few firework at the end of our street…

And then there fireworks at both ends of our street…

And we could even see fireworks from our backyard…

The ones we saw in our backyard were my favorites. We’ve seen some really great firework displays from our house over the last five years…

And speaking of five years ago, this weekend we were just moving into our house…

We could hear the fireworks popping late into the night. And it was just a pretty lazy Fourth of July. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŽ†β€οΈ

And back to Gulow Street.

Good morning from Northside…

Instead of the annual Northside Fourth of July Parade, this year there were Fourth of July decoration destinations…

And one of neighbors at the end of our street was a decoration destination…

Good evening from Northside…

Later, we walked back down to Gulow Street

It was so good yesterday that we wanted to try more of items off their menu. Today, we both ordered their burger with chips…

Gulow Street’s burger were amazing. Everything we’ve had at Gulow Street has been so good that we ordered a couple more items to go…

We really like Gulow Street.

When we got home, we hung out in our backyard for a bit…

Later, we ate our Gulow Street takeaway…

Sesame noodles…

And the ham & butter sammich…

Both we just terrific.

And four years ago, we still had grass in our backyard…

What a great Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ”β€οΈ

Over on Gulow Street.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Lowe’s again this morning…

We stopped for coffee at Dunkin…

And then we got to work in our backyard…

We had many, many bags of pea gravel to dump…

Three hours later…

We got cleaned up and headed to over to check out a new restaurant that just opened up in Northside called Gulow Street

Genifer ordered Sesame Noodles…

And I ordered the Rigatoni Bolognese…

The food at Gulow Street is sooo good. We can’t wait to come back to try more of their menu.

We were inspired by their decor. We’re going to start keeping at eye out for random, inexpensive works of art to hang in our dining room…

It’s always fun when new places open in your neighborhood. Especially when they’re as good as Gulow Street…

We can’t wait for our next visit to try a couple of those sammiches.

On our way home, we stopped at Northside Tavern for a drink…

Good evening from Northside…

It was a great start to the long holiday weekend. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸœπŸ»πŸ–ΌοΈβ€οΈ

Happy 7-1!

Today is July 1st! Happy 7-1 to all that celebrate…

It was another rainy morning…

On our walk this morning, we only made it to the stop sign at end of street…

But when we went on our walk this evening, the sun was out…

Weather. Go figure.

Good evening from Northside…

We haven’t seen very many snails on our walks so far this year…

Our third and final HelloFresh dinner of the week was Pecan & Walnut Crusted Chicken with BBQ-spiced sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts and apple…

Have we said that we really like the HelloFresh meals?

When we got upstairs, it started pouring again…

And now we have a long four-day holiday weekend…

πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

Dang. Still more rain.

Good morning from Northside…

The sun was out and the skies were blue with wispy white clouds this morning but by lunch time it was pouring down rain…

Mack and Oscar were waiting patiently for me to finish up with work…

Good evening from Northside…

Our second HelloFresh meal for the week was Sheet Pan Pork Sausage & Pepper Flatbreads with Monterey Jack and mozzarella…

I just don’t know what to say. All the meals are so good.

After dinner, it started raining again…

And it kept raining all night. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒ§οΈπŸΎπŸ½οΈπŸ•β€οΈ

And we have a few more rocks.

Good morning from Northside…

We got another delivery of rocks for our backyard early this afternoon…

Our last delivery of rocks was from Lowe’s. But they would only delivery 15 bags of rocks at a time. This time we ordered from Home Depot. They’d delivery as many bags of rocks as you’d like. We ordered 70 bags of pea gravel and 7 bags of river rocks…

And we moved them all from the sidewalk to our backyard in about 35 minutes…

We have a lot of pea gravel…

And there’s the rest of our river rocks down there…

We ended up moving the rocks during the hottest part of the day…

We get to choose three HelloFresh meals a week. And tonight, we had another HelloFresh meal for dinner. This one was Italian Pepper Steak Sandos with melty mozzarella & roasted potato wedges…

SANDOS! Gosh. We’re really loving these HelloFresh meal kits.

After dinner, the skies looked pretty ominous…

It started sprinkling on us while we were out on our walk…

Good evening from Northside…

Three years ago, I had my second hip surgery…

Four years ago, we were witness to the best soccer game I’ve ever seen live…

Five years ago, we were all moved into our house in Northside…

And we had our very first NYPD PIzza party

We can’t wait for the weekend so we can start dumping bags upon bags of pea gravel in our backyard. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ½οΈβ˜οΈπŸŒ§οΈβ€οΈ

Good evening from Northside.

Good evening from Northside…

Five years ago, we were packing everything up to move to Northside…

Six years ago, we were hanging out up in Michigan…

And Svensk always loved hanging out in the window of our apartment downtown…
