Cleveland

Friday morning we arrived in Cleveland to visit with Dave’s family. I love them. They’re all so nice, and they seem so normal compared to my family. I love visiting here, too.

When we arrived, we headed straight over to Skyline because we were “good and hungry.” Ever had Cincinnati-style chili? It’s an acquired taste, but once you’re hooked, you’re hooked! It’s a very finely textured chili that is cooked for hours and hours. It’s made with spices like Cinnamon, which we always think of a sweet, but it’s not really sweet at all, just the connotation of sweetness. It’s served over top of angel hair spaghetti, and topped with mounds and mounds of very finely shredded cheese. You can also get it topped with onions and beans, but that spoils the beauty of a perfectly-made Jumbo Three-Way. Ah, I’m getting hungry thinking about it!

After everyone filled up at Skyline, we went back to Mom & Dad’s and a few hours later opened our Christmas presents! The kids were going crazy, and they had a great time opening all their presents. So did I!
