Let Them Eat Meat Pie

Funny thing when you have a cat, I was working on this post the other night. I did not finish it and was planning on working on it in the morning. Well Archie, decided to walk across the keyboard and published this post. I did not realize it until I was at work the next day and received the post in my email. I read the title and thought, "What?" And it gets better, someone commented on the post. Lucky Archie is so cute!

Anyway here is the blog post -

Tonight we finally ate the Pizzagaina. Oh it is so worth the work and money. The crust, fugettaboutit. Spot on is what I would call it. The filling did not disappoint. I added some Sweet Capicola just because.

And I could not serve just Pizzagaina. I made a Caesar Salad using Romaine and Radicchio. The dressing was a variation of Lidia Bastianich's recipe. I left out the anchovies and the garlic.
Caesar Salad Dressing from Lidia's Italian American Kitchen-

2 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
4 cloves of garlic
4 anchovy fillets
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 hard-boiled egg yolk
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
fresh ground black pepper

Combine the vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, and anchovies in a blender or work bowl of a food processor. Blend until smooth, adding some of the 1/3 cup olive oil if there is not enough liquid to move the mixture around the blender jar. Add the mustard, hard-boiled egg yolk, salt, Worcestershire sauce, pepper, and remaining olive oil if any.  Blend until smooth and creamy. Taste the dressing; if it's a little too tangy, pour in a splash or two of olive oil and blend until it's incorporated.

This is the comment that was left on the cat published post. I love when people leave comments so I felt bad that the original post was deleted with the comment. Luckily I save emails.

Meat and all other kind of pies so popular in New Zealand !. Your pie looks so scrumptious. Would you mind adding it to my easter linking party on my blog? Cheers
