The goal was to stump my mom. Could she guess the dish?

I must have been dreaming! Suddenly, Sabine and Simone emerged fully dressed and excitingly exclaimed, "Daddy, are you coming with us to the Cool Cats Jump Rope Club?"

They found that seven out of 10 families eat dinner at least four times per week. Most Americans prefer to include very few ingredients in every day dishes. Less than six ingredients are ideal according to 90 percent of the respondents. Meal preparers spent more time preparing the meal than actually enjoying it with their family.
