"I'll just make the kids pizza because I've made pizza dough so many times that I don't even have to think about it, and I can let it do a quick rise. And it's so quick to cook it that I can have pizza on the table in 20 minutes," she tells me, adding that she usually has a roll or two of dough in the freezer at all times, too.
Since Garner recently posted her go-to pie recipe, you can recreate it in your kitchen and top it off with the last of the summer fruits (*sigh*) like figs and tomatoes, or even avocado. But to really channel the actress-slash-supermom, you'll also need a big, leafy green salad on the side.
"I like to cut up my veggies and include them in the salad," Garner says. "So I'll cut up broccoli so there's a nice crunch, I'll cut up green beans, and I always have avocado, either nuts or cheese, and a protein." In a pinch, she also subscribes to the "everything" salad mentality that involves tossing *all* your veggie-based leftovers into the mix for an extra hearty nutrient feast. (Not to mention a clean fridge.)
So whether you decide to recreate this combo, stat, or save dinner à la Garner for Fri-yay, you can count at least one of this week's meals easy as, er, pie.
