They were pretty dang spicy.

Good morning from Northside…

For dinner tonight, Genifer made these hot & spicy udon soup noodles that we got at Cam International Market

The noodles and broth were so tasty but they were also really spicy. Genifer made some delicious potstickers that we got at Cam as well…

And then we went on our evening dog walk…

Good evening from Northside…

And they actually cut the grass in the “orchard” at the end of the street…

It was looking like a hot mess. A real hot mess. And speaking of a hot mess, even when we got home from our walk, my mouth was still on fire from those noodles. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ₯‘🍜❀️

Cheeseburgers & thunderstorms.

Good morning from Northside…

We went to get Biggby Coffee

Biggby Coffee is so good. We like it a lot.

We had to run some errands up north today, and afterward, we found ourselves out in Lebanon. We stopped to fill up our gas tank at this Marathon station…

It was just across the street from this train…

And we were presented with an unusual fuel option…

πŸ€”

We decided to just go with the plus. On our back home, we stopped at Quatman Cafe in Mason for lunch. We’ve been to the Quatman in Norwood a couple of times but we’ve never been to the one in Mason before…

Quatman always has a daily special. Today’s special was a cheeseburger, fries or onion rings and a drink for $8. Two, please…

Those onion rings look delicious…

And those burgers were as delicious as they were big. And they were huge! I don’t know why we don’t do to Quatman in Norwood more. Their burgers are terrific and it’s really inexpensive to eat there. We really need to change that and eat more Quatmans.

Quatman was sooo good. When we got home, we took the dogs on a walk around the block. There were some ominous looking storm clouds that had just passed us…

But as soon as we got around the block and up to the top of the hill at the end of our street, it started raining…

And when we got home and looked out in the backyard, it was pouring…

It seemed fitting that it would rain on the end of our weekend. It was a great Monday. It was a really great long weekend. And now we only have to work four days this week to get to our next weekend!

Taft’s pizza makes for a good Sunday.

Good morning from Northside…

We were a bit tired this morning. The fireworks around Northside went late into the night and straight through into the very early morning.

This afternoon we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for a late lunch…

It’s kind of funny to us. It seems like Taft’s Brewpourium is really the only place we go any more. It’s close, the pizza and beers are great, they take all the right precautions to keep everyone safe, and now they have seats near the bar again…

We sat at one of the picnic tables on the other side of the Brewpourium…

We ordered a white pizza with mozzarella, prosciutto, cherry tomatoes, and arugula…

Taft’s had some Fourth of July weekend specials. We ordered two of them… pasta salad and BBQ Grippo crusted chicken wings…

It was a lot of food. Everything was really good as always. And I think the pizza we ordered just became our new favorite. We love Taft’s Brewpourium. It’s always been one of our favorite places but even more so during this pandemic. We don’t know what we would do or where we would go without Tafts.

And good evening from Northside…

It was another good Sunday. But it’s hard to have a bad day when you have Taft’s pizza. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ•πŸ”β€οΈ

Just another Tuesday.

There really haven’t been many very pretty sunrises so far this summer. When I look out our window in the morning, the colors are pretty but there haven’t been any clouds. And the clouds are what make the sunrises beautiful, in my opinion.

Look at how pretty the sky was this morning from our third-floor bedroom window…

And one through the filters of Instagram

And when I checked back after taking a shower, the clouds started to go away…

And good morning from Northside…

I finished the last of our Cosmic Stars cereal from Meijer…

Now the next time we go to Kroger, I can get more Shining Stars.Β 

Oscar was just hanging out in the front bedroom while I was working today…

And we had sammiches from NYPD for dinner tonight…

NYPD has really good hoagie sammiches. They’re are much to look at, just hoagie rolls piled high with toppings. Genifer usually orders the Italian. And I usually go for the chicken fatija sammich. Like I said, they’re really good. Next time we have them, I’ll be sure to take a photo of them.

And I don’t know how I missed my good evening from Northside photo tonight. I bet it looked a lot like yesterdays photo. And that was pretty much our Tuesday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

We made it through Monday.

Good morning from Northside…

Why do Mondays always have to be so grey and overcast?

Today, I found this on the intertubes…

Yeah. I don’t know either. We didn’t get grilled cheeses. We had BLTs for dinner…

I love BLTs. It’s crazy how such a simple sammich can be so dang good. I put some turkey and cheese on my sammich. So I guess it was actually more of a turkey club sammich if you think about it. But it was really good though.

Good evening from Northside…

Still gloomy. But we made it through another Monday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ₯ͺπŸ₯“πŸ₯¬πŸ…πŸ§€β€οΈ

Coasting into the weekend.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Kroger to get a few groceries. I noticed these crazy striped peppers in the produce section. I’ve never seen anything like them before…

And of course, we stopped at Biggby Coffee…Β 

For dinner tonight, Genifer made this vegetable tikka masala over rice…

For just a little pouch you warm up and serve over rice, it was really outstanding. Next time we’re at Whole Foods, we definitely going to have to get some more. It was really surprisingly good for how easy it was to prepare.

And good evening from Northside…

It was a pretty good Friday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜•οΈπŸ›β€οΈ

NYPD Pizza party!

Good morning from Northside. It was a very pretty morning…

Looking through my sunglasses, it looked like there was a dust storm or something along the horizon in the distance. I tried to take a photo of it through my glasses…

It was weird that I could only really see it through my glasses. So I wonder if it was my eyes playing tricks on me because I was just reading about the massive cloud of dust from the Sahara Desert that is crossing the Atlantic Ocean.

After work, we had an NYPD Pizza party

It had really been a while since the last time we had an NYPD Pizza party

Ohmigosh. It was so delicious. We love NYPD Pizza parties.

Good evening from Northside…

It was a pretty and pretty tasty Thursday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ•β€οΈ

Hello from Northside.

Good morning from Northside…

When we got home from our walk, the light was coming through the curtains in the living room and illuminating the vase on our little table. It thought it was very pretty…

We hadΒ another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express mealsΒ for dinner tonight. The Kroger meals don’t usually repeat much at all. But the last time we were at Kroger, they had the Asiago Turkey Meatballs with tomato basil couscous again…

It was another really delicious dinner. We really like theΒ Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

And good evening from Northside…

It was a Wednesday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Cloudy with a chance of crab cakes.

Good morning from Northside…

It was pretty grey and overcast this morning. The blue skies were trying hard to make an appearance this evening…

Good evening from Northside…

When we got out to our backyard, the grey clouds were moving back in…

Genifer made crab-stuffed mushrooms for dinner tonight…

They were delicious. And that was our Tuesday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸ¦€β€οΈ

Hello from Northside.

Good morning from Northside…

Our little bush had even more blooms on it this morning than it did yesterday

And good evening from Northside…

There was a guy jumping rope at the top of the steps, and it terrified Mack to his core. I’ve never seen him have such a reaction of pure terror. It was really weird.

After our walk and after Mack regained his composure, we slowed down to grill…

We grilled four burgers from Whole Foods that I forgot to take a photo of, and we grilled two beautiful pieces of marinated salmon…

And we wrapped it up with some chicken sausages…

Oh. We also grilled two ears of corn that I didn’t take a photo of. It was the first time we ever grilled corn. It was a bit of an adventure. But it turned out great. I cut all kernels off the cob to get this amazing little container of gold…

It was a pretty nice night to be out in the backyard…

Good night from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ”₯❀️
