After the Chili yestersay, Ice Cream for breakfast is probably a good idea.
I scream, you scream--it's that kind of day.
Ahhh, Graeter's! Do they still sell "seconds" from the dairy?...you know, chocolate chunk ice cream with chunks that are too big (?!)- that sort of thing?Been to a UDF yet? They used to be good, anyway.
I want that.
Feasting on food and fellowship in Cincinnati. Let the good times roll at the Althouse on the River Spring break trip. And remember Ann, that too much of a good thing is wonderful.
I'm sorry, that color ice cream is now forever linked with the movie Savage Grace in my mind.http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0379976/Not for the squeamish, close to the end is one of the most disturbing scenes in cinema history.
Check out the Cincinnati Egg Salad Sandwich.
And, as was mentioned in another thread another good Cincinnati ice cream is UDF.And the best place to get soem is in the Rookwood Ice Cream Parlor in the Museum Center at Union Terminal.An entire room decked out in 1930's Rookwood tile, and hand-dipped ice cream!
Black raspberry chocolate chip is the best ice cream flavor ever. I've never been to Cincinnati, but in western MA, the place for raspberry chocolate chip is Kimball's.
Forget the ice cream, I want that green table!
How about a commune where people sit around in a circle and eat chocolate chip blackberry ice cream?
Ann...never been a Cincinnati Chili fan, but Graeter's Ice Cream is something I miss terribly.If you have time, have dinner at the Montgomery Inn (either in Montgomery or the boathouse on the river). Their ribs are so good that I've converted many a "Ribs? I don't like ribs?" person to "When can we go back???"Montgomery + Graeter's would be a good taste of Cincinnati. I'm jealous just thinking about it...
That flavor of Graeter's is the best ice cream ever! I'm fortunate in that they have just started selling it here in Denver
For those of us who have never had it - is it kind of like a less sweet, more fruit-based Cherry Garcia?
I've never had Ben & Jerry's ice cream. It's not supposed to be very good, is it?
Okay Althouse; whatever Liberal cred you had I think you just lost it!
Comparing Graeter's to Ben & Jerry's is...not at all possible, I'm afraid.
Also, perfesser - nice subtle Wisconsin/Vermont snub there, if I may say so. It benefits from being true, of course.
Actually you can order Graeter's ice cream online and have it shipped to you. It is worth it. Best ice cream I ever tasted. Their sorbets are also outstanding.
Nice food. I like hot stuff. Joy
Cincinnati favorites...If you have a chance, try Aglamesis Bros.I also recommend you find some place that serves goetta for breakfast! I can't remember the name of the place, but I seem to recall one that looked like a big red barn...
Several years ago, Oprah declared Graeter's her favorite. Now you know why she can't keep weight off. Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip is exquisite. At work we have a monthly birthday party. Graeter's Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip is the only constant on the menu.
Goetta I can live without although it is better than it sounds.
The Red Barn is Bob Evans.Great breakfasts; the other meals aren't bad either.
Ben and Jerry's is pretty bad imo - too sweet-with the exception of Cherry Garcia which is basically vanilla/cherryish ice cream base with cherries and bitter chocolate - the bitter chocolate takes the edge off their usual flaw and it's pretty good.
Ann:By the way--and I recognize I'm rather late in telling you this, I'm sorry--but when in Cincinnati, not only must you try every food item particular to Cincinnati, you must also rave that it's the very best you've ever had.Always. Everywhere. Without exception.Because anyone who is from Cincinnati -- and anyone who has lived there -- knows that everything is the best from Cincinnati.That's just how we are in the Hermit Kingdom.
Here is a recipe for goetta which is a lot like scrapple for those who have had that one.2-3 pounds pork shoulder8 cups water3-4 cups chopped onion2 large bay leaves2 ribs celery, chopped with leaves1 tablespoon salt, or more to taste1 tablespoon pepper, or more to tastePoultry seasoning to taste3 cups pinhead oatsCut meat into big pieces and put in pot with water, onions, bay, celery, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and lower to simmer.Cook, uncovered, and stirring occasionally, for 2 hours. Meat should be real tender and fall off bone if that’s what you’re using. Strain and chop meat finely. Set meat and veggies aside. Pour liquid back into pan and add pinhead oats. Bring to a boil, then lower to asimmer.Cook, uncovered, stirring often, for another 2 hours. Mixture will be thick. Add meat,veggies, and seasonings. Simmer another 1 -2 hours. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. Line 3-4 loaf pans with aluminum foil and spray each one. Pour goetta into pans, packing down firmly. Let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate. For a creamy, softer goetta, cover pans. Uncovered, you get a crisper crust.Keeps for a couple weeks in frig, or several months in freezer. To serve, slice goetta and fry with pieces of bacon.It is OK but not something I would go out of my way to eat.
Hmmm...the photo looks more like beet sorbet; don't laugh, it's quite tasty. We were gifted six pints of Greater's at Christmas, one of which was their legendary Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip. Divoon.
I have several pounds of sliced goetta in my freezer, custom-made for us by my husband's grandmother.Nyah nyah.I like to fry it in a dry nonstick skillet till really crispy, and then put a couple poached eggs on top. The rest of my family likes it with ketchup.I also prefer UDF to Graeters...
Cool Idea! After chili the best place to get soem is in the Rookwood Ice Cream Parlor in the Museum Center at Union Terminal.Term Papers
