the buzz





Situated between Illinois and Ohio and just below Michigan, the Hoosier State occupies the center of the Midwest. Incidentally, the original meaning of Hoosier is no great compliment: it means an ungainly, awkward yokel. But Indianans have unabashedly embraced the name. Hoosier is also the team name of Indiana University in Bloomington. A few Indiana culinary traditions include Persimmon pudding, Indiana chile (with beef and beans), and popcorn. About half of Indiana’s farmland is planted in corn, and Hoosiers have been popping kernels since Native Americans first taught them the trick. The Indianapolis 500, held every year over Memorial Day weekend, is one of America’s premiere tailgating events. Pre-race, fans can fuel up at Breakfast at the Brickyard and the annual Champions Pasta Dinner. And the winning driver of the Indy 500 traditionally hoists a big glass bottle of cold milk in the winner’s circle.

The sauce was bland. I omitted the hot sauce as I wanted flavor, but not a hot one.
