Cincinnati Scenes…

I flew to visit my sister this week…  I was greeted by temps nearing 80…

…which then plunged to winter’s chill and dropped snow overnight!

I love the old architecture in the vicinity!

We both loved this one best…

But this is home, sweet home.

Experiencing local culture necessitated a trip to: Jungle Jim’s a most quirky and colorful international market!

Everything from pig snouts and tongues to fine teas and gourmet chocolates…

But comfort food in these parts comes from:

Skyline Chili

IMG_20140415_213048990IMG_20140415_210535914_HDR “Skyline Chili” is a secret-recipe chili of supposedly Greek origin, with an unexpected touch of cinnamon.  It’s served on spaghetti pasta topped with a mound of shredded cheese.  This is a “three-way”.
For a “four-way” you add chopped onions OR beans.  And for a “five-way” you add BOTH onions and beans.  I tried a ‘five-way’.  Tasty but not comfort food.  Apparently the taste grows on you.  Many locals love it.

And that’s what I’ve seen of Cincinnati so far…
