If you were in Cinci Ohio which Skyline Chili item would you pick as a starter?
I had this really brief social media conversation with a very nice lady named Valerie Adkins McDaniel on the Kim Harrison Facebook page about where to eat when I get to Ohio for my photo-shoot. I didn't realize a reference in Kim's books was an actual well known place because I've been wandering the east coast and not traveling inland.
It appears I need to get out of New York City more often, eh?
While I am poking around looking for things to do while on down time in Ohio between writing assignments I figure the least I can do is maybe take a crack at finding something to photograph for the contests they've got going on. If you haven't been to the Drama Box you might find "More Winners! (and a tiny peek at the Hollows Insider)" interesting. I have a thing for eye candy and this has been mad fun keeping up with, but I digress... (LOL) ;-)
Picking a decent Ohio hotel is the first thing on my bucket list. Finding good food item number two.

Skyline Chili Nation was an eye opener. Click that link to take a gander at their recipes and/or download their PDF Cookbook. I have yet to set foot in Ohio state but I like them already (because I have Rainers there and I love to cook and can experiment until I get to try the real deal - LOL).
I am going to be covering a whole new world of foodylicious stuff for my next round of Localism posts while on the road so stayed tuned for God only knows what. ;-)
Val says, "You'll either love it or hate it. Try the cheese coneys and/or a 3-way."
Since I love chili I'm thinking I'm probably going to love and crave their menu because they have interesting meals to choose from like that 3-way Val was talking about. It's one of their signature dishes: Steaming spaghetti, covered with their original, secret-recipe chili and topped with a mound of shredded cheddar cheese.
I am 46 years old. I have NEVER eaten chili with spaghetti. Why didn't I think of that? Seriously... I can see my kids doing this with me in the kitchen. The chili possibilities are endless (LOL).
Best part - you can order their chili on-line. The have locations in Florida so the little minions can get in on the action too. :-)
Thank you, Valerie. Thank you, Kim. I learned something new today. ;-)
All the Florida Locations:
Clearwater 28776 U.S. Highway 19 North (727) 791-6887
Ft. Lauderdale 2590 North Federal Highway (954) 566-1541
Sunrise 2834 North University Drive (954) 741-3929
Ft. Myers 5100-323 South Cleveland Avenue (239) 278-3929
Naples 710 Ninth Street North (239) 649-5665
I am mapping them trying to figure out which one is closest to our house in Palm Bay. You know I am going to have to eventually compare them all, right? (LOL) Too bad they haven't hit New York City yet.
I love chili. My kids love chili. This road trip is going to be fun... My grasshopper eating gal pal Emelia may come along when I go to Cleveland next time so keep an eye out for that bit of future mischief. We're going to be looking for something tasty and exotic to blog about. We like going on food adventures together. She's a marvelous cook and hosts some of the best sleepovers ever. ;-)
