Iron Chef Recipe Card

I've been working on some swaps lately. I am in an ongoing recipe card swap each month where we have to choose a category, and then we are given a secret ingredient. We have to then create a recipe card using the secret ingredient that fits within our chosen category. My category for March is "Soups, Stews & Chili." And the secret ingredient is Cinnamon. That's a toughie. Then I remembered the Cincinnati Chili that my mom makes has cinnamon in it. I found this outline of a map of Ohio and typed the recipe inside. I have to admit, I had no idea on that Ohio map where Cincinnati was located. I had to look up Cincinnati's location on mapquest. Even though I'm from Ohio, I'm from the northeast part of the state. In college, some friends and I once drove to Cincinnati, and it took us over 5 hours to get there. I couldn't believe we could drive that far and still be in the same state! Ohio doesn't seem that big. I hope I put my star brad in the correct place on the map and I am not showing off my bad geography skills to my fellow swappers.
