Pizza evening

I've been making a lot of pizza, lately.. It's quick and easy, it suits my shopping schedule (=once a week), it's quite cheap, and it's goooooood.. =D

My favourite pizza base recipe is on a fridge magnet - and I pimp it a little bit.. 200ml water, one sachet of dry yeast, 1tsp salt, 2 tbsp olive oil, about a pint of plain flour (I use a similar size jug to measure them, so no idea how much that would be in grams!), and I'll usually add a bit of garlic powder, and 1tbsp oregano.. I just switch the oven on (200C/fan), and prep everything while waiting for the oven to heat up.

My favourite sauce is like "cheat BBQ" - I mix about 3/5 ketchup, 2/5 sweet chilli sauce, and a few drops of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce, plus some mild chilli powder, and ground black pepper..

Today, I went OTT with two kinds of pepperoni.. Cheese was mild white cheddar, and I put most of it on the sauce, leaving only some for the top layer..

The dough went a bit crazy, this time, but it was Oh - So - Good...

I left some for tomorrow, which was difficult.. LOL

So, I finally started using Snapchat - st.stello


Stello's Snapchat Stories - Around Wicklow.. May 2016

I had been avoiding Snapchat as the idea didn't really appeal to me, and I felt like I might be about 30 years too old for it..

However, I sort of forced myself to install it, the other day, and actually try it, before deciding whether to keep it, or not..

It's actually fun - especially the face filters.. (I have a history of having face filter fun with various webcams, but the Snapchat filters are much, much better..)

Most of my friends do not use Snapchat, so I'll share some of my Snapchat stuff with them in other ways - like on this YouTube video, above.. All these pics and videos are from yesterday.

If anyone wants to add me on Snapchat, my username there is st.stello

I was googling to find some interesting snapchatters to follow, but unfortunately, all the "top people to follow" type lists, were full of vacuum-head celebrities, and such.. I'd rather follow some real people, whether I know them personally or not, and see snippets of random real life stuff, maybe some cats, funny stuff, travel, etc..

Wonderfully weird

Purple Rain Prince AVI

I went on youtube, to upload a little evening video, but came across this Purple Rain video and had to watch..

What a shame that Prince had to die so young.. =(

2016 has been terrible, taking so many extremely talented people, way too young..

Summery Sunday!

It's been gorgeous, today! Really sunny and summery.. =)

I fixed the cat run roof netting, so the kitties had their first outing, this year, and meanwhile, I could have the patio door open..
