Day 5

  1. Gather up any toys (animals are especially great for this) that start with the letter. I also strung up something to eat under. (We had my parents over, that’s why it was a little fancier than usual. 🙂 )

  2. U Dinner
    Appetizers: cashews and  umbrella fruity drink – cut pineapple slices in half to make it U-shaped (last minute trip to the store did not produce umbrellas for drink, so I got little cupcake liners and put them on a toothpick)
    Soup: Udon Noodle Soup (I used these, but both were too spicy for me! My husband said they weren’t spicy at all.  So…)
    Dinner: U-Shaped meatloaf patties, green beans placed in a u-shape and elbows with olive oil and dried tomatoes.
    Dessert: I can’t remember! I should’ve done this earlier!  Oops! As my mom said, it must have been “unmemorable!” Ba-dump-bump 😉
