I thought today would be a good time for somethin whimsical, so follow me.
Do you know where I was?
Here are two more like it…
Do you know yet?
It was time for lunch…
It was a cold, slushy-snow-meltin kinda day…
The Mister and I sat in a cozy booth, far from the doors.
I ate this:
Steak n’ Shake (Meat n’ Milk) is one of my favorite places to eat.
I know there aren’t Steak n’ Shakes everywhere, because when I lived in Georgia, I had to drive over an hour to get to one. We’d always go on our way back from the beach at Jekyll Island. We’d arrive so pink, crispy, hot, and wet, we’d shiver in the air-conditioning while we ate.
In Indianapolis, there are tons of Steak n’ Shakes. I live within a 20-minute drive to at least five of them.
Chili 5-Way is my favorite, and I usually order a vanilla shake as well, but I was cold. I hadn’t been warm since I left my bed that morning. (Yes, I do sometimes get cold.)
Generally speaking, Midwesterners enjoy ice cream, frozen custard, and milkshakes all year, despite the cold. We also enjoy chili on pasta, which I’ve come to understand others see as a chilibomination, but I don’t care, I still love it.
(Really, I haven’t met a chili I didn’t like. Even that weird white chili tastes good to me.)
But OH! CHILI SPAGHETTI!
If you follow me on Instagram, you know I even make it at home.
“Oooh, we have leftover chili! Let me just make some sketti quick!” Then add cheese, onion, crackers, and hot sauce.
Some people call it Cincinnati Chili, and maybe that’s where it started, but you know, there’s only a bit of road and river between Indy and Cincy…
How would you like your post for today? Extra doors, fine, but hold the chili spaghetti?
