    What I miss about Cincy...

    I haven't lived in Cincy since '89. But, here is my list (that I can think of right now):

    -Goetta
    -Reds games within a 15 minute drive
    -LaRosa's
    -Hap's Pub
    -Hills (I live in Columbus, the most uninteresting terrain on earth)
    -Softball Parks with Bars where you can actually buy BEER!
    -Stump's Bowling
    -West-Siders...
    -Family...

    It's ironic you should mention goetta. We were out in Jefferson City, MO visiting my wife's family and the morning we were leaving, I brought in the local paper for my in-laws and was surprised to open it up and see this picture. Apparently the family having the reunion had first settled in Ohio (per the story) before moving to mid-Missouri in the early 20th century.

    Do you miss the hills or the mounts? And why are some called one or the other?

    Well...if you really must know, there isn't really a hill in Cincy. Instead, they are all valleys leading down to the river that were carved out by the outwash of the glaciers...

    As far as naming, who knows?

    What is Goetta?
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Cheap sausage mixed with oats. It is an old Cincy-German dish that made the sausage last longer. It can be spicy or mild, like sausage, and makes a great meat substitute in just about any dish. I prefer mine mixed in with scrambled eggs (and an angioplasty on the side)

    No, no - since oatmeal reduces cholesterol, I firmly believe that the ingredients balance each other out (my wife refuses to give an inch on this for me, but I'll stand by that belief!). BTW, you can get some good goetta at the restaurant with the best cheaper breakfast in town - the Blue Jay Restaurant on Hamilton Avenue in Northside: 2 eggs, toast, hash browns, and a meat (goetta) for just $5.00 plus tax.

    I don't seriously believe that and I know I need to limit a food like this. I don't always do that, but I try to remember.
