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.
