04/14/06 Last Day April 14, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — Liz @ 2:47 pm

Today was my last day at PPC. For a last day, it wasn’t bad. I posted a couple of journal entries,  fixed a set of instructions, I read my e-mail, read the Chronicle, read Tim Goodman’s blog, read the Survivor website. After that I wandered around the building saying good bye. I was planning on leaving at about 10am, but Cherry & Karen wanted to go to lunch. They invited the CFO and he paid! Cool-o-rama! We went to Olive Garden. I just love their salad! It’s their dressing. Cherry found the recipe in a cookbook of restaurant recipes …

Olive Garden Italian Salad Dressing



½ cup white vinegar

1/3 cup water

1/3 cup oil

¼ cup corn syrup

2 ½ tbsp. grated Romano cheese

2 tbsp. dry pectin

2 tbsp. beaten egg or egg substitute

1 tsp. lemon juice

1 ¼ tsp. salt

½ tsp. minced garlic

¼ tsp. dried parley flakes

Pinch of dried oregano

Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes


Combine all of the ingredients with a mixer on medium speed or in a blender on low speed for 30 seconds.  Chill at least 1 hour.  Serve over mixed greens or use as a marinade.
