National Food Service Week 08

"Recommit To Excellence"

I wanted to appreciate all the Foodserivce workers and cooks who worked hard to make sure that every thing in the department goes smoothly. Hence, Foodservice week is an excellent opportunity to do so...
We had a different theme food everyday...
Monday: Pizza day

Tuesday: Root beer Float & Banana Foster with vanilla ice cream
Wednesday: Asian Food- specially cooked by Shakil and I!
Menu includes- egg rolls, curry puffs, spicy egg plant and tofu, corn soup, char kway teow, indian beef curry, roti prata.

Thursday: Ice cream paradise
Friday: FInger licking good (finger foods)

Activites:
Monday: Guess the number of M&Ms in the jar and the winner will get to bring the jar back home.
Can you guess? Well, I counted every single M&M to get...2008!! There was a wide differential in the lowest and highest guess- from 280 to 3500!

Tuesday: "Guess who am I" -employees brought in their baby pictures for people to guess...the person with the most number of correct gueses will win .

Wednesday: Hat day! Everyone were allowed to wear any hat of their choice that is within the Adventist guidelines. ( e.g without words like Budweiser, etc)
Thursday: Wear Green-day. To commemorate save-the-earth or recycleing activites.
Friday: "Who Said It???" Guess who said these phrases?

We visited San Francisco...and ate at Sears- Famous for their "World's smallest pancake"

They bought lots of chocolate back for Noi.

We went up to the alpine mountains--Park City, Utah...at the Zematt Resort and Spa...

Beautiful hues of golden yellow from the leaves of the aspen trees

Stunning view from the top- one of the highlights of our trip

Papa was ecstatic to see many varieties of Christmas trees- maybe because he is a christmas boy born on christmas day.

Strawberry Gelato @ Paris Hotel, Las Vegas is a must-try when you visit!

The World's tallest and largest volume chocolate fountain @ Jean Phillpe, Las Vegeas
