### A Strange Restaurant

A very strange restaurant has entered your neighborhood. Instead of letting you order your food the normal way, they only let you order the items based off their code (which doesn't change). There are nine dishes labeled A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H and I.

If you come in with a group of people, they will not place the dish you ordered in front of the person who ordered it. Instead, they will place the dish in the center of the table, so that the group can decide what to take (think buffet style).

Your four friends and you enter the first night and look at the strange menu. Since you are captains of logic, you decide to break the restaurants code and figure out which dish corresponds to each letter. Without asking the waiter (who won't tell you anyways), can you order five dishes each night for three nights running and figure out what each dish is?
