Getting my facts straight as in the recipe is based on the sauce used in "macaronia me kima", which, wonder of all wonders, is commonly referred to as "Greek bolognese sauce". That kind of getting my facts straight?

I talked to my Dad this morning and mentioned Skyline Chili and how this thread had inspired me to look on-line for recipes. It's been many years since either of us has lived anywhere near Cincy, but he immediately said, "Ooh, can you send the recipe to me?" My guess is that he immediately headed for the grocery and has a big pot of it simmering right now!

Thinking back to my years in Ohio also inspired a craving for Graeter's Ice Cream. My husband and I frequently went there in the early years of our marriage. But my favorite of all ice creams was from a dairy outside of Yellow Springs called Young's. It was a weekend tradition for us to hike the gorge at John Bryan State Park and then reward ourselves with a trip over to Young's.

Nope, not that, although that was a really good guess! Spotted dick is a dessert, typically served with custard, and not typically containing meat except for the suet.

The sausage I'm thinking about was a meaty suet (fat) sausage and served in slices about 3-4" in diameter and 1/4-1/2" thick. Definitely a sausage since it always came with a rind or casing. It was mainly savory and served for breakfast with fried eggs. Hmmm. Could be a regional Scottish Highlands food and not that common even in the UK.

I moved to SE Michigan about 14 years ago and encountered the term "coney" as in "coney restaurant" or "hot dog topped with chili." Not the same as a simple chili dog - there are regional variations and emotions can run high over which version is the best. (I'm not a fan, but it's sort of a thing around here.) Flint-style is dry with a Koegel brand sausage; Detroit style is "wet" and spicier.

I went there a lot ... way too much! ... when my college roommate lived in Xenia and I lived in Lebanon. To die for.

I can get Graeter's ice cream at Whole Foods now; only a few flavors, but my craving for black raspberry chip is now easily soothed.

Then you've got me. I have no idea.

Maybe white pudding then? White pudding - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

OMG is right! My dad used to make that for me when I was little.

That is it. Thank you!
I am sure I'm not hallucinating the raisins or sultanas, although I don't see those listed as an ingredient. I distinctly remember the taste of the almost-burned raisins on the surface of the pudding/sausage and how some kids picked them out before eating the rest.
It may have been one of those institutional foods forced upon UK boarding school kids in the late 1960 and early '70s that nobody wants to acknowledge any more LOL. But I liked the stuff!

Maybe it was a very regional variation that had the raisins in.

Might be. I now remember it being available at the local chippie, doused in vinegar and salt, and the taste of the crunchy rinds/casings and toasted raisins. I'm having food flashbacks, ha.

Thanks Natsku!
