So, yes, I've decided to join in the blogging revolution (a bit late, I'll admit) but here I am! For those of you that know me, well I need no introduction. LOL! For those of you that don't know me, I am a 30-something year with two kids...three if you count my husband. :) Whoa, wait, did I say 30-something? When did that happen? Anyway...my oldest, Sean, is 6 and is not the biggest fan of fruits and vegetables. While searching the internet for solutions to that issue, I found http://greatbigvegchallenge.blogspot.com/ which is a really cool blog about this woman and her 7-year old veggie-phobic kid. They cooked their way through the alphabet. I ran this by Sean and he thought it would be fun. I told him we could make a scrapbook of our adventure, taking pictures of the veggies and our finished dishes, and putting the recipes in there. He thought that sounded good, but he also wants to make a TV show!! Have I mentioned that one of his favorite channels is The Food Network? Well, it is. When I said "challenge" he immediately thought of Iron Chef, and wanted to know who would be going up against us and who the judges would be!! I love that kid!!!

I figured why not put our adventure out there on a blog. It might be fun! I'll admit, I have a tendency to start these types of things and then tire of them (some of you may remember my brief try at MySpace...) but maybe since I have a 6-year-old helping me, I'll actually stick with it this time! And I thought "Alphabet Soup" sounded like a fun title for the blog. I think instead of just veggies, we'll do fruits too. Have I mentioned that I think my 7-month-old eats more fruits and veggies than his big brother? I have my work cut out for me...I hope you'll enjoy our journey!!
