Lunch at Olive Garden

Happy Wednesday! We watched the Vancouver Whitecaps FC Canadian Championship game last night, so today I took a day off so I can wake up later than usual.

My youngest sister and I also planned a road trip to Langley, BC, to have lunch at Olive Garden with our parents.

Spinach Artichoke Dip
A blend of spinach artichoke and cheeses served warm with flatbread crisps.

The flatbread crisps were terrific, but the dip is unfortunately too salty. Whatever blend of processed cheese they used has a lot of salt to be enjoyable. I thought it was me, but my dad noticed it too.

Zuppa Toscana
Spicy Italian sausage, fresh kale and russet potatoes in a creamy broth

The Zuppa Toscana was delicious. Thanks, past self, for taking a note to order this over the Chicken and Gnocchi.

Shrimp Scampi
A lighter take on a classic! Shrimp sautéed in a garlic sauce tossed with asparagus, tomatoes, and angel hair.

I thought the saltiness from the Spinach Artichoke lingered in my mouth that's why the Shrimp Scampi tasted salty, but when I arrived home and asked my hubby to try my leftover, he said the same thing without my prompting. The two items I chose were salty. :(

I ordered a $7.00 to-go pasta because I ordered an entree. We enjoyed the Spaghetti with Meat Sauce at home for dinner, and it came with four breadsticks. Thankfully, the Spaghetti with Meat Sauce is not salty.
