  1. Okay, I'm curious... what is Alphabet Dinner?? :)

  2. Alphabet dinner is our annual back to school nite meal- we sit down and put a food or dinner related item (like plate or napkin or spoon) to each letter of the alphabet. I just did a post on it here: http://acontentedcommonlife.blogspot.com/2011/09/alphabet-its-whats-for-dinner.html
    Thanks for stopping by!
