@ludwigsdiana Hopefully not. Maybe those who can cook. I have never seen so many walkers as we have now in our neighborhood.

@domenicododaro absolutely! You know they say andrà tutto bene but the truth is andrà tutto stretto. Broadly translated: #everything will be well, but in reality #everything will be tight

@shutterbug49 nobody is allowed to leave their homes here Debbie, not even to walk the dogs! Fortunately we live on a private security estate with large open spaces. We are allowed to do what we normally do, but have to keep social distance and not more than two people living in the same household.

@ludwigsdiana That could be true, I do keep active, doing exercise in the morning and have a brisk walk in the afternoon. Regarding the food, it’s fun to cook, not much else we can do at the moment :)

@caterina It will be tight in many ways, not just around the waist!

@jacqbb @taffy @vignouse It is a simple pizza base recipe, if you want you can use a ready made pizza dough from the shop.
My dough: 600g flower,(I use 400g white flower, 200g drum wheat, grano duro). 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp sugar, a packet of dry yeast, a good shot of olive oil, 320 g hand warm water.
Mix the 3-4 tb of warm water, the yeast, sugar together use a small cup and let stand for 10 minutes.
In a big bowl add all the dry ingredients mix, add the oil, yeast and a bit of water mix, add more water, mix add more water until the water is finished.
Now comes the hard work, begin to knead the dough, keep going until you get warm and the arms tired, you should end up with a nice lump of dough. Put it in a warmed up bowl drizzle with olive oil and coat it. Cover the bowl with a wet towel (not dripping wet) set it in a warm spot for at least one hour until it has risen well.
In the meantime cut some rosemary or any other herbs small, add it to some olive oil, a bit of salt and if you like some minced garlic, set aside.
Now spread the dough on a well flowered surface, go over with a rolling pin and flatten it to about 4mm, with a dough or pizza cutter (I used a rippled on) and cut long stripes about 1- 1 1/2 cm wide, use a brush and coat them with the herbed oil.
Now it comes a bit tricky, carefully lift a stick up and twist it like a ribbon and place it on a baking sheet.
Bake at moderate heat until they have a nice colour but not burnt, it takes about 25 minutes.
I hope at the end they will look like mine, good luck!

@ludwigsdiana At least we are encouraged to walk as long as we keep 10 foot distance (about 2-3 meters).
March 27th, 2020
