Fish recipe gets girl seat at table
WASHINGTON -- A recipe created by a Little Rock 11-year-old will get her a seat at the White House in July.
Aspen Smith will be recognized for creating a recipe for Arkansas baked almond catfish for the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge, a nationwide recipe challenge for kids.
Aspen is to join winners from all U.S. states, four territories and the District of Columbia at a kids' "State Dinner" at the White House on July 10. The 55 children and a parent or guardian will eat a lunch featuring a selection of the winning recipes with first lady Michelle Obama, followed by a visit to the White House kitchen garden.
