Slow down & grill.

We grilled tonight…

We threw some burgers and chicken breasts on the grill…

And when the chickens were done, we added some cheddar brats…

And Genifer made some tots to go along with our grilling feast…

YUM! You can’t beat food off a charcoal grill. It always tastes amazing! 😀🍔🌭🐔❤️

Slow down and grill.

Genifer’s mom came over this afternoon with a whole bunch of good stuff for us to throw on the grill for a Memorial Day cookout including these amazing steaks…

It was one of the best charcoal piles I think I’ve ever made so we started throwing everything we could find on the grill because it was cooking so nice…

YUM! Oh my gosh, what a meal! Those steaks were outstanding! 😀🥩❤️

Slow down and grill.

We grilled out for the first time this season…

I’d forgotten just how good stuff tastes off the grill. YUM! 😀🍔🌭❤️

Opening Day Parade Party.

They’ve kind of made a mess of the start of the baseball season this year. The season officially started last Thursday but the first Reds game was rained out and played on Friday. In Cincinnati, there’s always the big Findlay Market Opening Day Parade before the first game and it’s always been on Opening Day for as long as I long as I’ve lived in Cincinnati. But this year’s parade wasn’t until today. Because I guess the parade has to be on a Monday for some reason. Today, we also had our annual Opening Day Party at work. There was big grill out with all sorts of food…

And we played a bunch of different games like pin the baseball on the catcher…

It made for a very fun afternoon at work celebrating the return of another baseball season to Cincinnati. 😀⚾️🍔🌭❤️

Slow down and grill.

It was a beautiful evening…

Perfect for firing up the grill…

Oscar got a haircut this morning and he was outside supervising the grilling…

You can’t beat dinner off the grill. 😀🐔🍔🌭❤️

Happy Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day! We didn’t do much of anything all day except for fire up the grill…

We had a bunch of Cheddarwurst, Queen City Sausages and leftover veggie burgers…

Oscar made sure he was out in the backyard supervising the grilling…

We hope everyone had a great long Labor Day weekend. 😀🇺🇸🌭🍔❤️

Northside Saturday.

This morning we had a little bit of living room soccer action…

Before we visited the playgrounds up the hill at Parker Woods Montessori…

We walked down Hamilton Avenue to have a delicious lunch at Melt…

From there we headed across the street to Hoffner Park…

To play on another cool playground…

With swings!

These two like playgrounds, swings and apparently, giant pine cones…

And then we headed over to check out Urban Artifact…

They were right in the middle of their Bewilderfest…

They weren’t doing flights during Bewilderfest so we just got one of each beer…

And we continued our tour of Northside by stopping into Second Place…

We made our way home for some cornhole in the backyard…

And fired up the grill…

We made a bunch of burgers and hotdogs…

We had so much fun wandering around Northside that it wore us out…

What a fun day with the whole family! Tomorrow, we’re going to the zoo! 😀❤️

Slow down and grill.

Tonight, we fired up the grill again for some burgers…

And the burgers were delicious. We love our grill. 😀❤️🍔

Three days in a row!

We fired up the grill again tonight! We did. We’ve grilled three days in a row now…

This time it was Cheddarwurst hot dogs and a couple more chicken breasts…

We ate the hot dogs for dinner tonight…

And the chicken breasts are for dinner tomorrow. Genifer mentioned something about fettuccine alfredo with chicken and garlic breads, and that sounds awesome…

But first, we had to down some cheddar dogs with potato salad and chips & dips…

Geez. You just can’t beat stuff off the grill. YUM! 😀🌭🐔🔥❤️

Two days in a row!

For the second day in a row, we fired up the grill! Tonight, we grilled up some steaks and Genifer threw a chicken breast on the grill for her lunch tomorrow…

Just look at that meaty deliciousness!

Genifer made baked potatoes and pasta salad to go with our big juicy steaks. And it was outstanding! You can’t beat meat off the grill. 😀🥩🐔🔥❤️
