On Monday we splurged and ate lunch at Biaggis. A Biaggis opened when we lived in Indiana. While Ram was at the Seminary we tried to split a meal to save money. The portions are huge and it was plenty for me-but not for Ram. On Monday we discovered that at lunch we could get 1/2 portion of salad and 1/2 portion of pasta or other combinations of 1/2 portions including sandwiches and soup too. Lamb 1 and 2 split a kids meal and it was pretty large for a kids meal. Lamb 3 was content with bread and water from a straw. Ram and I each had 1/2 portion of pasta and salad. I was stuffed and didn't each much supper, especially after Costco samples. Ram was starving by the time supper came. Perhaps next time I will again get the 1/2 portions but I think Ram will get the whole portions! I love their iced tea and their bread.
Since I first started going to Biaggis, I have always liked their spinach salad. Last time we went we discovered their beet salad was very good too. This time I decided to write down what was in these salads. Since we only get to a town with a Biaggis a few times a year and we decide to splurge at Biaggis even less than that, I thought it might be good to make similar salads at home. I know that at home they won't be exactly like Biaggis, especially because there are a few expensive ingredients, but I'll try next summer when we have fresh greens from our garden. I'll still make sure to order one of these when I go to Biaggis!
Beets, honey balsamic marinade, arugula, avocado, sun dried cherries, and spicy walnut crusted Montchevre goat cheese.
Spinach, sun dried tomato bacon dressing, Gorgonzola cheese, red onion, and hard boiled egg.
