I’m a fortunate girl.
I’ve eaten some of the best risotto in Venice. I’ve tasted the paella of Spain. I’ve had (too many) caipirinha in Brazil. I’ve noshed on the baguettes of Paris.
But sometimes, just sometimes, my tastebuds really just want something like this:
Don’t laugh, but I sort of love the breadsticks and salad. Yep sometimes I just want mainstream typical food. Maybe it’s because good ol’ Olive Garden was the place of my first Homecoming dinner when I was 14. Or maybe it brings happy memories of my Dad taking me there on my Birthday. Who knows? (who cares?) I like it.
And I’m not the only one. After I shared this with a few friends, I’ve come to find out many have a weakness for OG’s breadsticks and salad. Good is good, right?
And sadly I’ve been wanting to return here after not having been for a few years, but it’s been surprisingly difficult, as there are few OG’s in the Bay Area.
But last night I got my wish (ahhhh [angels’s singing'] )!
And now I think I’m good for another few years…
Oh and I thought I’d share what I baked earlier this week:
And it all starts with these:
Just follow the directions on the back. And let me tell you, these puppies are gooood. [Dad I hope they’ve arrived in WI and you like ‘em ]
So there ya have it.
What’s on your agenda for the weekend? I’m seeing my bestie!!!!
Do you like chain restaurants? OG – yes or no?
