Last week, while beautiful weather-wise, was crap. And our streak of good weather is over for a little while, as today, it’s been windy, chilly and damp. I gave Jay and the bambino a choice for dinner–Garlic-Lemon Pork Chops and rice (that’ll come later in the week) or Cincinnati Chili Totchos. Imagine my surprise when the bambino picked totchos!
They are good, I will grant that. Then again, throw just about any form of potato underneath some Cincinnati chili and a giant pile of cheese, and I’ll eat it.
(And yes, even though the recipe says otherwise, I committed a huge sin, and I put cheddar-jack cheese on my totchos…It was the only full bag of cheese I had…The cheddar I’m saving for a regular bowl of Cinci chili!)
Plus, it helps curb the homesickness…Something I’ve been fighting again lately. Part of me would love to move back to Cincinnati in a heartbeat, but another part of me knows deep down, it’ll never truly be home again.
