A Lovely Luncheon at the University Club

We had yet another delightful and interesting
luncheon at the University Club in the IMU today.

Our guest speaker was Dr. Tom Morrison, 
who is Indiana University's 
Vice President for Capital Projects and Facilities.

He spoke to us about the Master Plan for the Bloomington campus.

They have things planned out years and years in advance.
 They leave nothing to chance.
If you are interested in learning all the details,
the fine print can be found here.
It was a fascinating talk for those of us
who are familiar with the campus.

But since this is actually supposed to be a food blog,
with some gardening 
and some other stuff thrown in from time to time,
let's get to the food...

First up was a Bitika Salad 
of iceberg and romaine lettuces
 with blue cheese, bacon, chopped cauliflower 
and garlic sweet and sour dressing.

I liked the fact that the salad wasn't swimming
(or rather drowning) in dressing.
It was done just right.

 I chose the
Grilled petite pork chop with rosemary and garlic 
over mashed potatoes 
with country style gravy and green beans as my entree.

The pork was cooked perfectly and was moist and tender.


 Several others at our table ordered the vegetarian option of
Eggplant Parmesan.

They were very happy with their choice.
I could tell.
Their happy smiles and clean plates told the tale.

Dessert was a cheesecake with cherry sauce.

The food was delicious as always.
We are fortunate to have
such a great chef and kitchen staff at the IMU.

Curious. I've never heard of bitika salad. When I googled it I got you and IU.
