On another note, I was making my rounds at the local thrift stores and I was smitten with this little old recipe card tin. It's probably from the 50's or 60's, and a bit beat up, but I just couldn't help myself for 69 cents. So I got it home and was cleaning it up and when I opened it, amongst the 5 old mismatched paper dividers was a real treasure:
A yellowed old card with a handwritten recipe for Italian Biscotti. Maybe I'm being delusional, but I have a fantasy that it's some ancient and cherished family recipe passed down from Italy to generation after generation, and I bet someone is missing it terribly because they forgot to take it out before they upgraded their recipe storage box. So I've decided that I'm going to take very good care of it and treat it like one of my own family recipes, and eventually pass it down with all the others. Yeah, I know, I'm a sentimental freak... But you have to admit it's kind of cute, right?
