Deep dish Sunday.

Today was our last day of the our long holiday break…

And it was another grey and rainy day.

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we ran over to the grocery store to get stuff for the upcoming week…

According to the balloons at Kroger, I guess the next major holiday is the Superb Owl…

We made BLTs for lunch with turkey bacon. I really like turkey bacon a lot. I made my BLTs on little Hawaiian rolls with two slices of cheese. They were delicious…

We watched football until it was time to take the dogs on their walk.

And then it was good evening from Northside…

For dinner tonight, we enjoyed out second Lou Malnati’s deep dish pizza that JJVE sent us for Christmas. The deep dish cheese pizza was really good and we were really excited to try the pepperoni one…

It looked and smelled so good…

It was delicious! Thanks so much for the delicious pizzas, JJVE! We really enjoyed them.

For dessert, Genifer made gooey deep dish cookies with chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. And we paired the cookies with little ice cream party cups…

They were delicious as well. Genifer always finds the best recipes to make.

This evening we finished the second season of Marcella on Netflix. It’s a good show.

We had a wonderful long holiday break. NO matter how long it is, it never feels long enough. I think I always have delusions of grandeur that I’m going to get more done or get more accomplished. This time I didn’t really accomplish a whole lot. But at least, we got to hang out and spend lots of time together and watch a bunch of movies and have a great holiday. And it was very relaxing. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŽˆπŸ₯ͺπŸ•πŸͺπŸ“Ί

Happy Boxing Day!

Boxing Day is a holiday celebrated the day after Christmas Day. It originated as a holiday to give gifts to the poor. Boxing Day was traditionally a day off for servants, and the day when they received a special Christmas box from their masters. The servants would also go home on Boxing Day to give Christmas boxes to their families. Today, it’s a great day of soccer from the UK. Early this morning, we watched Leicester rally twice to draw 2-2 with Manchester United

And we watched my Arsenal…

Arsenal lifted the funk they’ve been in recently with a 3-1 win over Chelsea

That’s two in the row for the Gunners. They actually looked like the formidable Arsenal of old today.

It was a very pretty evening…

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner tonight, we had stuffed mushrooms that we got at the grocery…

Stuffed mushrooms are delicious. And then we had a frozen oven pizza…

Later, we started watching Hinterland on Netflix. It’s pretty good.

We had a really good Boxing Day. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„βš½οΈπŸ„πŸ•β€οΈ

Happy Halloween Eve.

Tomorrow is Halloween. There will still be trick-or-treating but still, it just won’t be the same with the COVID raging, will it? Who would have thought that all the way back in the middle of March that the number of pandemic cases would be still be accerlating eight months later at Halloween?

But at least it’s Friday…

And guess what, it’s also still grey and overcast. So, yeah.

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made some delicious cookies…

The blue skies were trying to peek through the clouds…

Good evening from Northside…

We ate oven pizzas for dinner…

The skies were starting to clear…

Maybe it’ll actually be nice for Halloween tomorrow…

Tonight, we watched Maleficent on Disney+. It’s hard to believe that we’d never seen it before. But it was really good. It was great way to wind down our Halloween Eve.

Happy Halloween Eve! πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸͺπŸ•πŸΎπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Oven pizza hoagie party.

We were pretty lazy today…

Good morning from Northside…

We made a Home Run Inn oven pizza for lunch…

I think Home Run Inn makes on the best frozen pizzas around.

And it turned out to be a pretty nice day…

Good evening from Northside…

And we had an NYPD hoagie party for dinner. Again..

We’ve been all about the NYPD lately. We like it a lot. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ•πŸ₯ͺ❀️

Our Friday.

Good morning from Northside…

Before we started working this morning, we ran over to Oakley to get gas from the Kroger Fuel Station. We had enough Kroger points to get 30Β’ off each gallon of gas…

And then we stopped at Biggby for beverages and I tried their sun-dried tomato, ham and swiss bragel. Their bragel breakfast sammiches are really good…

From Biggby, we ran over to Whole Foods to get some groceries…

For dinner, we made this pizza we got from Whole Foods from dinner tonight…

And good evening from Northside..

That was pretty much our Friday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

It’s what’s for dinner.

Tonight, we ate 3-minute microwave pizzas from the oven for dinner while we watched Guy’s Grocery Games

I really like those cheap little pizzas. ANY pizza is good pizza for me. πŸ˜€πŸ•πŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Pizza pizza pizza!

I love those little 3-minute microwave pizzas…

I mean, we cook them in oven and they definitely don’t take three minutes. But I think, they’re really good and two of them make a pretty good little dinner. πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ

We ate this.

We made another Donato’s oven pizza this evening for dinner…

This one was a supreme and it really good. πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ

Donato’s Pizza… at home?

Genifer found Donato’s oven pizzas in the freezer section at the grocery…

They taste just like delivery Donato’s pizza and they’re really good. πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ

Running some errands on the Westside.

We ran some errands over on the Westside of Cincinnati this afternoon. Genifer got a new Fitbit Versa from Best Buy. We stopped to say hi to Genifer’s brother’s family. And we stopped at Aldi for some groceries…

It’s the first time I’ve ever been to an Aldi. I was kind of surprised how much good stuff they had at Aldi. We picked up a few things for the week including this oven pizza…

For just an oven pizza, it was really good. Who knew Aldi had such good stuff?Β πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ
