On Sunday, after waking up and eating oatmeal (cookies) for breakfast (Recipe here!) My mother and I decided to head out for some shopping, or rather, my mother decided & I was captive. Same difference. We headed out shopping, but quickly realize we were hungry, and diverted ourselves to a local pretzel shop.
Soft pretzels are my favorite food group. Yes, if you eat enough of them, they are indeed a food group. We headed to Brezel, a pretzel shop in the OTR (Over the Rhine) neighborhood of Cincinnati.
Proving once again that portion control DOES NOT run in the family, my mom (the same mom who cooked THREE turkeys for Thanksgiving...for 6 of us...) decided we needed 2 of everything, so if it was tasty, we wouldn't have to share. And we ended up pretty much clearing the shelves.
On our way back to the car I spotted a piece of artwork on a brick wall, so we crossed the street to see it. Upon further inspection it was actually part of a series of art pieces. Each depicted part of a poem about the city of Cincinnati, a love poem for the city if you will. The full poem, titled Seven Hills and A Queen to Name Them can be found by clicking the link.
