Then we all went to lunch at Olive Garden. I had read on-line that they have a gluten-free menu, and was curious to try and see what my experience would be. I'm pleased to report that while the vegetarian gluten-free pasta offering wasn't thrilling it was a) vegetarian, b) gluten-free, and c) not-cheesy. I had salad and requested no croutons and dressing on the side, thinking that they'd bring me my own little salad. Instead, they served the table salad with croutons and dressing on the side. Sara noted (and I agree) that OG tends to use too much dressing on their salads anyway, so it suited her just fine.
In Sara's honor, I added TVP to the lentil, kale and veggie soup I made that evening. It was delish!
Thanks for caring and being a loyal reader, Sara!
