Allegrae rated for EATC: Fast Food of Your Region ATC on May 8, 2021
Comment: Love the ATC! I enjoyed reading your letter and mini-zine. I've never had Cincinnati Chili, but it sounds delicious. Having lived in Texas and California, I'm a girl who loves her chili, but I'll have to add some Middle Eastern spices next time I whip up a pot. I love Middle Eastern food, so it seems like a great spin on a classic. Thanks for a great swap!
