Personal Notes:
We had this when I was a kid. It was great fun to each make our own "dinner". Mom would cut up the veggies and each of us would add just what we wanted to the foil packet. Then we would poke our initials in the top so we would know who's was who's. We often had this dinner out camping too, cooking the foil packets in the campfire. Added benefit, kids get to cook their own dinner and mom doesn't have any mess to clean up afterwards.
