We Love Cincinnati!

Our family is visiting Cincinnati this week to meet the family of the young man who is courting Tessa and to allow the two, who are conducting their courtship mostly through phone calls and email, to spend some "in person" time together.

As we arrived in town on Sunday, our very first stop was at Skyline Chili. We learned to love this Cincinnati-specific cuisine when we lived in the city more than a decade age.

Skyline chili is specially spiced with a touch of cinnamon and even a hint of chocolate. It is served in a shallow bowl over spaghetti and topped with cheddar cheese. Eating this stuff is so messy that each order comes with a bib!

We've even taught our Russian adoptees to love Skyline Chili!
