My daughter and I played around to make up this recipe for a goal for personal progress – a youth program through our church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  It was fun, and such a great experience for her.  Her goal is to plan, shop and help prepare all the family dinners for two weeks!  I love her choices.  Some new things, some regular things, and some quick things for busy days.  Very wise.
