*Note to my readers: COAFF has been a little more personal and a little less "fashion-y" in the past few posts, but I'm in holiday mode and having a pretty fun time documenting my Christmas '08 shenanigans for y'all via iPhone photos. I promise to be back to tons of fashion and the like in '09!!

So our beloved friend, Oli, gets two major thumbs-up for being -- what Khaleel has dubbed -- "Captain Organization".

The big Team 1059 ski trip up is coming up, and Oli took it upon himself to put together the meal itinerary for three days.

But the best thing about said email is that nowhere does it indicate that any of the girls would be doing any cooking.

Merry, merry Christmas, ladies.

Here's what O-Dawg had to say. A little comprehensive? I guess most lawyers, as Oli is, are pretty detail-oriented. Had to post it all so you could get the scope and give kudos for his effort.

Read, in particular, his drinking schedule at the bottom.

As Borat would say, very niiiiice.


After quick discussion, we cobbled together a list of meals that we will be eating while in Sun Peaks. The consensus was Luke and Mack would pick up all of the bulk items from Costco and Mikey and I would take care of fruit and veggies. We will cook for nine people for each meal below, with the exception of Wednesday dinner when Will, Amber, Brad and Tynaya will also be joining us. Luke and I will cook Monday night, Mack on Tuesday night, and Mike on Wednesday night. With that in mind, the meals are as follows:

Monday dinner- Spaghetti bolognese, garlic bread, salad
Tuesday breakfast- Porridge, fruit, coffee, oj
Tuesday lunch- (to be eaten on the hill)
Tuesday dinner- Chicken fajitas, fresh salsa and guacamole
Wednesday breakfast- Bacon, eggs, sausage, toast, fruit, coffee, oj
Wednesday lunch- Sandwiches and soup (for people to eat at their leisure if they do not ski or if they want to come back for lunch during the day)
Wednesday dinner- Steak, asparagus, mushrooms, roasted potatoes, caesar salad

Ingredients for Luke and Mack to pick up:
- Spaghetti
- Ground beef
- Garlic bread
- Bulk organic greens (for 2 night's worth of salads, as well as sandwiches)
- Chicken breasts
- Whole wheat wraps and bread (for both toast and sandwiches)

- Coffee (for 3 mornings)
- Sandwich meat (turkey breast, ham, chicken breast etc.)
- Cheddar cheese slices and grated cheddar cheese (for fajitas)
- Soup (chicken noodle, tomato, etc.)
- Steak (13 fillets)
- Small yellow nugget potatoes (for 13)
- Croutons
- Caesar salad dressing and a balsamic vinaigrette dressing
- Yellow and blue corn tortilla chips (for dinner and for snacks)
- Granola bars (for eating on the hill)
- Porridge mixture
- Milk and cream
- OJ (lots)
- Soda water (lots)
- Red bull (lots)
- Ketchup and hot sauce
- Any other snacks you can think of

Ingredients for Oli and Mikey to pick up:
- Oranges, apples, bananas, melons (for 2 mornings)
- Tomatoes (for sandwiches, salads and salsa)
- Onions (for pasta and salsa)
- Limes and lemons (for booze and salsa)
- Cucumbers
- Red and green peppers (for pasta and fajitas)
- Asparagus

If anyone has any ideas for food or certain things that they like or dislike, or if I forgot anything, feel free to offer up your thoughts.

Also, everyone is responsible for bringing up their own booze. If you were curious, my plan was to drink Baileys between 8am and 9am, Fireball between 2pm and 4pm, beer between 4pm and 10pm, and vodka thereafter. Each to their own I guess.

In the middle and on the right, two of the chefs!

I'm Lovin' it: OMG. OMG. OMG. For some reason, j'adore the outfit on this Club Monaco mannequin. Plaid. Skinny vest. Fingerless gloves. New Year's outfit?!

I'm Over it: Berry and I baked soft ginger cookies with cream cheese filling on this past snowy Sunday afternoon. Then Berry made another batch today, of which I ate one with tea and then took two home. I need to stop eating them if I know what's good for me. And my hips.

Track of the Day: One of the best tracks of 2008. Bon Iver. Skinny Love.
