Sometimes it’s easier to throw in the towel and go pre-made. We’re all busy with insert-word-in-blank, and it takes a lot of time to really do some of the things by hand that maybe we should. Like make pie crusts. We love Mr. Pillsbury. That squishy dough man has appeased our food yearnings with biscuits, toaster strudels, crescent rolls, pizza crusts, and brownies for years. He’s also rolled out his share of pie crusts. We’ve had many, many years of Pillsbury pie crusts, and we’ve enjoyed. But there’s nothing like one you make with a mean combination of real butter, a pastry blender, and a little bicep/tricep action. Our grandmas and the Pennsylvania Amish knew what they were doing!
This is a great dinner to come home too, but it takes a bit of prep time. We opted for the make in the morning, go to Happy Hour in the afternoon, come back and heat in the oven at night method. It worked very well. It also tasted great with a eeney weeney side salad. Our apologies for the fact that we totally did not measure one thing that went into the vinaigrette. Just start with a few things in the bowl, mix, taste and add based on whatever it may be missing. Hopefully the approximations below will be a good jumping point for you to modify based on your preferences.
