Thanks guys.  While shopping today I've thought of a few more columns
for my data so my first item will be building the 3 DB tables and a
way to populate them.  Since this was intended to automate what I do
on a weekly basis, I didn't think about adding recipes since I know
what I need for the family, but that's a good touch.

Item 1. Build 3 db tables
Item 2. Build app to populate tables.
Item 3. Build app to read tables and print lists.

Anything else?
