Yep, that looks about right... except you need to up the breadstick portion a bit (and I like to dip them in the Alfredo sauce...)

FabuLeslie said...

Here's the nail. And here's you hitting it on the head. Well done. A little less soda. ha! Love me some Saturday Graphs!

Saimi said...

Breadsticks are the best! It's why we go.

Kristina P. said...

That's why I make the other sections my actual meal.

tammy said...

True dat.

That's what mine looks like too, but substitute raspberry lemonade for the soda.
The greasier the breadsticks, the better.

Jason, as himself said...

Soooo yummy.

dbs said...

Ditto. Minus the soda. Soda (or pop as we like to call it here)is the devil.

lisleman said...

it's been awhile what do they have other than bread sticks and salad?

Sandra said...

Is there a problem?...Unfortunately, I now have a craving for Olive Garden...

Julia said...

Mh, yes. You have to try the breadsticks dipped in Alfredo sauce. Sooo good.
Followed you here from Goodfather blog. I like the pick what you think option on the bottom.

Melinda said...

I think someone's hitting the weird button just for me, do you think so?

I love the frozen lemonade at Olive Garden and can probably drink 10 glasses of it. SO YUMMY!!!

Eva Gallant said...

Yep...more breadsticks though!

goodfather said...

LOL! We started just ordering one meal to split - saves so much money!

Great post. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Connie said...

Exactly! The soda is replaced with water on my scale. That just makes more room for the yummy bread sticks!

Oilfield Trash said...

That graph I think is true of everyone who eats there.

Allyson & Jere said...

Oh WAY too true. Except it is DEFINITELY a higher portion on the breadsticks. Those sneaky bastages, they know what they're doin to us.

Julie said...

I want some bread sticks. I'm missing bread. Never been to Olive Garden, one day maybe. I think about 100 miles south of us is a bunch of them. Glad you enjoyed your dinner.
Take care and God Bless!!

sinika said...

What?! No room in the belly for the giant pumpkin cheesecake slice?!?

mice_aliling said...

The consumption of breadstick confirms just how hungry you were haha. I tend to be that way, too. I eat the bread before the entree comes in. I tend to be stuffed right before the actual meal starts. Soda's bad for you! Don't you teach that to your students?;)

The Mom @ Babes in Hairland said...

Mmmmm -- Olive Garden. That looks just about right -- minus the soda and possibly a little spot for cheesecake. But that's only on a "special occasion" and I only have room for a bite or two! Then it goes home in the doggy bag! Thanks for not sharing on FB that every kiss begins with Olive Garden tonight! hehe

It looks like we need to introduce you to the world of Carrabba's…it's like Olive Garden - but simply amazing.

Mamma has spoken said...

Guess that's one of the reasons I don't like Olive Garden. Seriously, I don't like eating there and EVERY year someone gives me a gift certificate for it. Needless to say, it's one gift I always regift...

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

You have that much room for your meal? Have another breadstick!

jules said...

That's the problem with olive garden! Well not really, because as long as youre into left overs you still have a whole meal left!

Pedaling said...

couldn't be more true.

Bossy Betty said...

Sounds just right for me too!!

Lisa Loo said...

What is this place called Olive Garden and these magical sticks made of bread??

(I think the nearest one to my house is literally 4 hours away in Spokane--can we please have a moment of silence in my behalf?)

Susan Tipton said...

You forgot what should have been the largest segment of the graph- sodium.

Rachel said...

You have just captured perfectly why the Olive Garden can afford to stay in business :)

Love it!

Baby Sister said...

So true...but the salad and breadsticks are soooo worth it...

SueLovesCherries said...

Yup - that's why they invented doggie bags!

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

Mmm, Olive garden breadsticks. xo

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

What is the need for the salad dude? Leave it and have more room for breadsticks.

The Church Lady said...

Isn't that the truth! I could just skip the meal and fill up on breadsticks and salad! Love Olive Garden!

Lene said...

They have food beyond salad and breadsticks?

Mommy Lisa said...

There is something so yummy about that salad - even if it is mostly iceberg. I couldn't agree with the proportions more.

Joann Mannix said...

I don't go to the Olive Garden because I am married to a man who is a very good cook whose mother is a gourmet Mediterranean chef borne from a mother who grew up in Sienna, Italy who was also an amazing Italian cook. They're the worst snobs of all when it comes to Italian food. I can't even get away with a jar of sauce much less Olive Garden which kills me because those bread sticks are delicious. I would just sit there and stuff my face with bread sticks the whole time.

M-Cat said...

Swap that salad portion for Zuppa Toscana and you have me pegged!
