Another rainy Saturday.

This morning we woke up early again to head over to Trader Joe’s before it got too crazy busy on Saturday. The later it gets, the busier it gets. We usually try to get to Trader Joe’s as close to 8am when it open as we can. This morning was our best time
so far. We pulled into their parking lot at 8:02am…

I just thought that little berry bunny was pretty cute. We didn’t get any frozen chocolate cover strawberry pieces though. I wonder if they would be good?

After we were done getting groceries at TJ’s, we headed over to get our Saturday morning coffee at Biggby

Biggby is our reward for getting up and getting groceries out of the way. We both got hot chocolates this morning. Biggby had more student artwork on display on their walls. I really liked the hills with the watercolor skies…

The owl and the elephant were really great too…

And if we had a daughter and named her Niala…

She would be Niala Fiala. Maybe Niala could be a middle name.

Later, we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for another lunch with our gift cards we got for Christmas…

Taft’s had a new Hazelnut Latte Coffee Milk Stout on tap…

And it was really delicious. We watched the Michigan-Illinois game on our little tablet. We shared a small pizza with pepperoni, sausage and banana peppers…

We also shared some of Taft’s chicken wings…

We had six buffalo wings and six Cherrywood BBQ wings…

I think I really like the Cherrywood BBQ the best. But they’re both really good. And even though, Michigan lost. Again. It was a great lunch. We just love Taft’s pizza and wings.

Later, we started watching a series called 11.22.63 on Hulu. It’s pretty good so far. And even though it was another rainy day, it was another pretty good Saturday. 😀🌨️❤️

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made lasagna for dinner tonight…

And there was garlic bread. I love garlic bread. The lasagna was really good too. It’s been a minute since we’ve had lasagna. 😀🍝❤️

It’s what’s for dinner.

For dinner tonight, we had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared House Chef Express meals. This one was Cheesy Chimichurri Chicken with corn and potatoes…

It was a little on the spicy side. But it was another very delicious meal. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared House Chef Express meals a lot. 😀🍝❤️

A morning run around.

We had the day off work today for the MLK Jr Day holiday. This morning we got up early to run some errands. We planned on stopping to get coffee at College Hill Coffee Company in College Hill…

But they’re closed on Mondays. We picked up a refill of Mack’s allergy medicine from his vet down the street in College Hill. And then we headed over to Rookwood. We finally got coffee and hot chocolate from Joseph-Beth Booksellers. We had a couple of exchanges at J. Crew. And ran through Home goods where we saw an awesome Josh mug. You don’t see Josh mugs very often. This one will be on its way out to Boston as soon as I can find a little box to put it in…

After we were done running our errands, we had lunch at Rusty Bucket. It’s funny it seems like every time we’re over at Rookwood we end up eating lunch at Rusty Bucket…

It’s nothing fancy. It’s just really good. Genifer’s been on quite a quesadilla kick lately…

Making it two days in a row. But we shared the first one so… I had the same sammich I order every single time we go to Rusty Bucket, Chicken Finger BLT...

And we shared a piece of strawberry cheesecake for dessert…

I ate all the strawberries and whipped cream. Genifer ate the actual cheesecake.

Other than our errands, we didn’t do much else today. We walked the dogs and watched the Lakers-Celtics MLK Day NBA game and that was about it. 😀🐔❤️

Django Western Taco.

This morning we ran some errands. We got more Biggby Coffee and then ran to the grocery to get some stuff for the week. When we got back to Northside, we braved the cold to walk over to Django Western Taco for lunch…

We had some chips & salsa, each had a taco and shared their Jerk Chicken Quesadilla…

And then we shared Django’s amazing bread pudding…

This time it was a bourbon caramel bread pudding. It was amazing!

And I became the mayor of Django again on my Swarm

Django is so good. It’s one of our Northside favorites. 😀🌮❤️

A pretty good start to the weekend.

It’s Saturday morning so we got up early to go get more Biggby Coffee

This weekend we had a coupon for $1 off…

Genifer got a 20oz. Caramel Marvel latte and I got a 24oz. Cocoa Carmella hot chocolate with some butterscotch flavoring added to it…

Biggby’s coffee is sooo good. When we got home with our Biggby coffees, we made some delicious cinnamon rolls for breakfast…

What a great way to start a weekend. 😀☕️❤️

NYPD Pizza party!

Tonight, we had another NYPD Pizza party

We’ve been all about their Station House pizza lately. And NYPD’s boneless wings are always delicious. I think an NYPD Pizza party is a terrific way to start the long three-day holiday weekend. 😀🍕❤️

Downtown details.

Historic West Fourth Street. 😀🏙️❤️

On the opposite corner of Elm and Fourth Streets is Caffe Barrista. They make the best sausage, egg, and cheese croissant breakfast sammiches…

I really like Caffe Barrista a lot. And they have really great salads…

And great cookies too.

Breakfast for dinner.

Tonight, we had breakfast for dinner again!

Breakfast for dinner is fun, Lois! It’s whimsical. 😀🥞❤️

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made her turkey meatloaf again for dinner tonight…

Her meatloaf is sooo good. 😀🦃❤️
