Skyline, and I don't mean city buildings

This post is dedicated to my favorite food ever, Cincinnati Skyline Chili. My mom made it for dinner tonight as one of my last meal requests. Basically it's spaghetti noodles topped with a runny chili and shredded cheese. Additional toppings are onions, beans, crackers, and hot sauce. The proper way to order Skyline depends on how you like it, a 3-way is plain (noodles, chili, cheese); a 4-way would be adding either the onions or the beans; and a 5-way would be adding onions and beans. I'm a 3-way or 4-way (with onions) kinda girl.. and definitely topped off with some hot sauce! yummm!! You can eat it at a Skyline Chili restaurant (which I HIGHLY recommend trying, and add on a Cheese Coney to your order -a hot dog topped with the chili, cheese, and a bit of mustard) or make it at home. Since the closest restaurant to our home is about an hour away, we usually make it ourselves.

Here's how: cans of the chili are available for purchase in grocery stores, just boil some pasta while you heat up the chili in the microwave, grab yourself a large plate and start building! Or, if you want an even simpler way, they sell it frozen, too! Just pop it in the microwave and add some cheese after, and some hot sauce, a little stir/mix and you're good to go. Trust me, you'll love it! :)

This is what the final result looks like::
