THIS is the good stuff!
So I wrote a blog mentioning a Cincinnati delicacy yesterday and thoroughly confused one of my readers. And I can understand why. It sounds somewhat perverted if you have no idea what I’m talking about. So I figured I would fill you in!
If you’ve never been to Cincinnati or Ohio, then you probably have never tried Skyline chili. And here is where it gets difficult to explain because, truthfully, Skyline chili isn’t really “chili” by most definitions. Skyline chili is actually more like spaghetti with coney sauce on it…but they also put it on coney dogs. So it’s more of a coney sauce…but they also use it on pasta. Get it?
No? Okay then. Aaaaanyway…so at Skyline, you can order your pasta with this sauce (which has cinnamon in it. Don’t ask. You have to taste it for yourself!) and with one or more toppings. You can get a 3-way, which is pasta with sauce & cheese (so…3 things. Pasta, sauce & cheese). A 4-way with pasta, sauce, cheese & onions. Or a 5-way with pasta, sacuce, cheese, onions & beans! So many choices, so little time! And it is tasty! But it doesn’t look tasty. Actually, it kinda looks nasty. Which is why the cover the stuff in this one giant heap of glorious cheese! And it’s soooo good for you! And messy. So messy that normally they offer you a plastic bib to keep it off your shirt!
So anyway, THAT is what I meant by a 3-way, Twenty Four At Heart (even though I know what YOU were thinking!). But if you are watching your calories, don’t go near Skyline! Skip straight to Graeter’s ice cream, the OTHER Cincinnati delicacy. Just ask Oprah! We are all about the health foods here in the tri-state area! LOL
