I didn't think it sounded very good either, until I got to the part about the oysters. I love me some oysters.

Oysters, oh save me. Years ago my father favored oyster stew. There was a restaurant downtown, I believe between 2nd and 3rd streets where you could get oyster stew as a carryout. I couldn't bear to even look at the stuff. I think maybe once in my life I was able to choke down some oysters rockefeller as they were sufficiently disguised and I was adequately lubed with martinis.

They have been a Cincinnati institution forever and ignore Sarah's scare tactic. I definitely like mine with an oyster cracker garnish. Of course I like oyster crackers period. Put them on Cincinnati Chili, southwest chili, and about any soup I fix.
I keep a box of Skyline brand oyster crackers on hand. Had some for lunch today. They do go bad, rancid, but not as fast as Zesta saltines.

Hey Wilson... How do you like the cheese crackers with the peanut butter filing? I swear they do not have an experation date. I have had some with I swear a 1/4 inch of dust on them and they are still crispy. What in the world do they put into those things?

They must be half preservatives.

I have some MRE snacks that probably are good for 10 years. Ever eat an MRE?

Yup! When you're sitting in a cold, damp concrete aircraft shelter on alert duty in Germany they taste GREAT!

Sarah, you might change your mind about oysters if you've ever seen 'em brought off the boat, shucked & canned...

KJBrill, I'll have to try Mock Turtle soup with the oysters next time!

No, I have never had the privilege to consume an MRE and am not anxious to try.

We can go on and on about specific foods.

I like discussing those made in Cincinnati. Worthmore is a brand which has been here forever. If you have never tried their mock turtle soup you need to. I will warn you when poured into a pan to heat up, you may have reservations about some of the appearance. What are those white and yellow things floating around? Simple, flecks of hard-boiled egg whites and yolk. They will not attack you.

I personally like Worthmore canned variety of Cincinnati Chili. Yes, they do make it, and I believe to a high quality.

We need to support Cincinnati companies.

I doctored up some frozen Skyline the other day with added ground beef and some dehydrated onion flakes (I like the flavor, even though it's not like real onion) and ate it over whole grain pasta topped with shredded cheddar. Tasty!

Hey, what an idea. Cincinnati Chili combined with whole grain pasta. We actually had that last week. And if you want another taste sensation, throw some sour cream on top of the chili and pasta before adding the cheddar cheese. You just might find a taste combination you have missed.
