I really had to chuckle when I saw this one in my mother's recipe box. It was actually written on a cut out paper map of the country of Italy!!

I figure she must have gotten this one at church because the ladies would get together and share recipes but they liked to do it "creatively." I guess writing on a cut out of Italy was unique and awe inspiring!!
