My husband's family all live in Ohio. Cincinnatti area. I hope to come up there one day and see the snow and eat a White Castle. I want a real White Castle really bad. I love Spaghetti and Chili. My husband said that is a Northern dish and I'd never heard of it till he told me about it. I ordered a copy of Traitor's Knot at Barnes and Nobles. I just hope they get it soon. Next week I'm hoping.

I've never heard of Spaghetti and Chili, though I am familiar with ChiliMac which is chili con carne with cooked macaroni added.

Trys, your surfing was correct and I'm amused that you actually found it there. "Mistake on the Lake" is a term mostly used by Pittsburghers to refer to Cleveland. I had some friends in college from Mt. Pleasant, that's a pretty area. I agree on the British comedy. I find myself watching BBC more than the American networks. I'd rather watch old Couplings than The Bachelor. (Although I did watch the first episode this time to see the guy from Sliders).

Cheryl, your husband is slightly mistaken. Spaghetti and Chili isn't a northern thing, it's a Cinncinnatti thing, it only makes it about as far north as Columbus. They did briefly open a Skyline Chili in Cleveland that served it and I think it only lasted a few years. I liked it though, especially piled with cheese and onions (I think it was called a 5-way).

Actually I remember it growing up in Wisconsin also. But that was mostly doing it at home:-) but do remember it somewhere at a restaurant there

Local fast food restaurant here in town has it going up from one-way to seven-way.

And of course I may add it at home just to stretch out the food budget :-)

I'm sorry Susan. I think he did say it was in Cincinnatti but his mother says it's a Northern Dish. She grew up in the Ohio, Indiana area. It's definitely not a Southern dish but I make it for him. We do Mac and Chili too. I love that. Yum!! Thanks Wayne, I thought I heard further out North too but it's more famous in the Cincinnatti area I bet.
