Alphabet Meals (A-H)

My daughter is starting kindergarten, which she is supper excited about.  It is all she has talked about all summer.  I still can't believe that my baby is going to kindergarten.  I hope that she loves it.  I thought it would be fun to do something in honor of of that.  So what I came up with was alphabet meals.  I haven't done one every night; you have to have leftover sometimes, but most days have had a meal which was sponsored by a different letter.  This is what we have had so far.

A - Chicken Bacon Artichoke Pizza  (from Papa Murphy's -I had never had it before, and it was really good) 

B - Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

C- Chicken Chalupas (sp?)- for leftovers we added Cauliflower which I didn't have the sauce for the first night.

D - Donuts - I couldn't think of anything mealish.  We ate these on our way to Bear Lake.

E - Eggs - We had Egg muffins for breakfast and then for dinner in our potato salad.

F- French Fries - It was supposed to be fish, but it was the day we got home and I got lazy

G - Mashed potatoes with Gravy - side of Green Beans

H - Hotdogs  - again, the ham quiche I had planned was just too much bother (plus some people don't like it)  (Haggis was also suggested, but I didn't know if I could stomach that)

That is as far as we have gotten so far, but it has been a lot of fun.  We do have a few problem letters coming up like V and X.  I have tried to have the alphabet letter be an ingredient in the meal rather than then name of the meal.  I will let you know who the rest of the alphabet goes.
