Pizza is perhaps one of the most important food imports that American culture has truly made its own. It is a snack that everyone can enjoy. The best thing about it is that it is also incredibly easy to make, to the surprise of many amateur chefs. This article shows readers how they can make their own pie crust from scratch.
First off, you will need to take a large bowl and mix together two and a half cups flour, a teaspoon of salt, a teaspoon of sugar, and a tablespoon yeast. Then you will need to mix some water and oil before adding it to your flour mixture.
Once everything has been mixed together, you will need to put it onto a floured surface and knead for no less than two minutes. After that, put it in a greased bowl and make sure to turn it to the grease top before covering.
Let the bread rise for 20 minutes. Once enough time has passed, you will need to punch it down and flatten it. We highly recommend that you place it on a 12-inch pizza pan that has been pre-greased. Pat it into a circle and your pizza crust is ready.
Franz Ferdinand has become one of the most underrated bands in British rock, in recent years. That being said, one can easily forget how this band first swept into the scene around a decade ago. They were initially hailed as indie-rock insurgents when their self-titled 2004 debut album was released.
At this time, the central mission of the band was to create records that people can actually dance to. While that may seem like a superficial comment that can be easily dismissed, it is vital that we take note of its all-important subtext. Franz Ferdinand was a band that sought to do away with the British indie scene’s boys-club culture. Their record overtly and slyly mocked the pseudo-scrappy romanticism of bands such as the Libertines. In its place, they would help establish a counter-culture that carries a smarter and sexier vibe.
Their fifth album, entitled Always Ascending, seems to be a throwback to the band’s original mission. The music itself is notably rawer yet it harkens back to the danceable feel that we have come to associate with their earlier records. This album is definitely a must-try for any Franz Ferdinand fan.
Traveling is perhaps one of the best ways to kick back and relax. Taking some time off in an exotic location, however, should also be done with due prudence. After all, you are going off on an adventure and that most certainly demands some ground rules. This article presents readers with a couple of basic traveling tips for beginners.
Dress Wisely and Appropriately
One of the first things that should be noted especially when traveling to other countries is the type of clothing you are supposed to bring. This is a practical matter in more ways than one. First of all, you need to ensure that you do not dress in a way that will make you stand out as a tourist. Listed below are some of the things to avoid wearing as they mostly follow tourist stereotypes:
- Fanny packs
- White socks and white sneakers
- Baseball caps
In addition to this, you should also prepare clothing that best fits the local weather. That may seem like a no-brainer yet it is something that some people forget.
It should go without saying that traveling will most certainly incur expenses on your part. The question that needs to be asked then, is how much should you take? You should also consider the form of money you will be bringing. Of course, as you may have figured out by now, one of the worst things you can do is to bring everything in cash. Bringing in traveler’s checks is also out as that is most definitely a recipe for disaster.
The simplest way to get around this problem is to bring your ATM card. This means you can withdraw money as the need arises. However, take note that you will incur a transaction fee with every withdrawal. That is why we recommend that you take a couple of hundred at a time and manage it for the next few days. That way, you can toe the line between safety and practicality with your money.
These are just a couple of the things that travelers must keep in mind as they explore new places.
