Saturday morning errands.

This morning we got up and moving and headed over to Trader Joe’s in Kenwood…

We love Trader Joe’s. We’ve become kind of obsessed with their stuff especially their Mandarin Orange Chicken. It’s better almost every takeout Chinese food that we’ve had. And it’s only $4.99. It’s so dang good.

Then we stopped by the new At Home store in Norwood…

I felt like I was in that last scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark

From there, we headed out to The West Side to collect our taxes. We got money back on the federal but we owed the state and city. But we came out ahead. After we got our taxes, we stopped into Menier’s Fine Meats…

I wanted to try their World Famous Chicken Salad

We a little container of the chicken salad (it was awesome), a little bit of their pasta salad and a couple of these awesome buffalo chicken egg rolls…

Meiner’s has really great stuff. And their meats looked out of this world. We’ll have to go back when it’s a little bit warmer outside when we can grill a bunch of stuff. After we were done at Meiner’s, we stopped a BDubs to share some boneless wings for lunch…

Oh, and mini corn dogs. I love their mini corn dogs…

On the way home from The West Side, we saw this sign for Chester’s Chicken at a Shell gas station on Boudinot…

That chicken is so darn cute. I wonder how the chicken is? It was a really good Saturday morning. We got a lot accomplished and we were still home by one o’clock.

BDubs & Brink Brewing.

After dropping off our taxes, we stopped at BDubs on The Westside for lunch…

I think their mini corn dogs are one of the best things around…

Genifer ordered garlic parmesan boneless wings…

And a side of fries…

I had the buffalo chicken sammich…

After we were done with lunch, we stopped at Brink Brewing in College Hill…

Brink always has some pretty awesome beers…

Great lunch and great beers make for a great Saturday. 😀🐔🍺❤️

It’s a sign.

We dropped off all of our tax stuff to our accountant this morning…

And this sign was on the deli right next door to our accountant…

World famous, huh? Now I feel like I have to try it when we go back to finalize our taxes. 😀🐔❤️

Seen and noted.

They really do make pumpkin spice everything. Don’t they…

And then there was this…

I just don’t know what to say. There’s a very good reason we don’t go to Walmart very often. At all. 😀🎃❤️

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? 😀🍕❤️

Seen and noted.

We always chuckle at this flower pot family whenever we head over to the Westside…

Every time was pass it, it’s always different. But it’s always equally elaborate. We always wonder what the backstory is and how it all got started. No matter what the story is, it always entertains us. And gives us a good chuckle as we shake our heads as drive by. Oh, the things people do to entertain themselves. 😀🌻❤️

Westside Sunday.

We had to run some more errands this afternoon and we found ourselves once again on the Westside of Cincinnati. And that was cool with us because we got to catch a little bit of Genifer’s nephew’s baseball game…

I think we’re good over on the Westside for a minute. 😀⚾️⬅️❤️

Stuffed Mushroom Saturday.

We ran a bunch of errands today. We also took Genifer’s nephew out to dinner for his birthday. But the highlight of the day was stopping at Longhorn for lunch because they had this stuffed mushroom appetizer that was out of this world…

I love me some stuffed mushrooms. 😀🍄❤️

Some Saturday errands.

We ran some errands late this morning into the early afternoon. We ran over to the Westside to sign our taxes and get those in the mail. We’re happy to report that we’re looking forward to a pretty nice return from the federal but we owed a little to the state. So we’re happy that taxes are done for another year. From there, we ran over to Tire Discounters on North Bend Road. We’ve been having a slow leak in our passenger rear tire. It’s never gone completely flat because we kept putting air in it. But then a few days later the tire pressure warning light would come back on. While we were waiting for our tire to be fixed, we spied a Skyline down the street. So instead of waiting in the tire waiting room, we walked down the road and had lunch at Skyline! Genifer and I haven’t had Skyline together in forever…

While we were at Skyline, Genifer found this sticker in Swarm that we didn’t know existed. And it’s funny because well, it’s named Oscar…

Mmmm, cheese coneys…

The tire place said your rear tires had near bald spots on them so we had the rear tires replaced. So now we have four brand new tires on our car and we should be good on the whole tire thing for a while again…

Errands aren’t that much fun. Buying new tires isn’t that much fun either. But the Skyline was outstanding. 😀🧀🌭❤️

A lazy Sunday.

We had a pretty lazy Sunday. We ran a few errands this morning and on the way home, we stopped on the Westside to get some amazing, delicious Jet’s Pizza

We used to Jet’s all the time when we live downtown. But they don’t deliver to Northside. So now, it’s really a special treat when we get to bring home the goodness that is Jet’s pizza. Just look at all that deep dish deliciousness…

After we were stuffed full of yummy Jet’s, we took Oscar on a couple of walks but mostly we just laid around the rest of the afternoon and watched movies…

It was a pretty relaxing Sunday. 😀🍕❤️
