Pleasant Street Dinners

Our friends the Beelers had this idea to have folks in the neighborhood share a dinner once a week and have it rotate between each of the families involved. There are 7 families with 24 people total. The first dinner was last night at the Beelers house and it was fab-u-lous. We had corn chowder, cesar salad, and Carrot cake for desert. There were kids as far as the eye could see and tagging in and out of parents taking turns eating or talking and watching the kids. We sat out on the porch and watched the day fade as kids rode bikes and played kitty cats. I am nervous for the time when it's our turn to make the food but I'm looking forward to the next one quite a bit. The idea is that you don't have to stay if you don't want to, bring your tupper ware and grab some food to go where ever you need to be, but for one night of the week, for 6 out of 7 weeks you don't have to worry about dinner. Well done Beelers, agree with Ben G on this, "best idea ever!"
