I hope this emails finds everyone healthy and safe. In my previous email I had sent virtual train tours.
Today, you will find links to various Mansions, Castle links and more. Why not explore and learn more about the things we don’t get to visit or makes us want to visit in the future.
Mansions and Castles:
In my previous email I had asked what my members are up too while in quarantine. Well, I have had a quite a few responses such as: Downsizing, decluttering, cooking, baking, jigsaw puzzles, quilting, walking, and reading and overeating. I have also received a few recipes, please continue to send me recipes you may have it could be anything grandma & grandpas or mom and dad’s favorite meal! If I make it I will post a picture and the recipe.
Recipe: Garlic Mozzarella Bread – Delicious!
For the Dough:
250g (2 cups) all-purpose flour/plain flour
5g (1-1/2 tsp) instant yeast – 25g (2 tbsp) sugar
1/2 tsp salt – 42g (3 tbsp.) unsalted butter, melted
125ml (1/2 cup) warm milk – 1 egg, whisked – Flour for kneading, if necessary
Garlic Scallion butter:
2 tbsp. softened butter – 1 tsp minced garlic
2 tbsp. chopped scallions – 1/2 tsp salt
In a mixing bowl, stir all the dough ingredients into a soggy dough. Transfer to the counter, use flour if necessary to fold the dough with your fingers, fold, and press to guide the dough into a ball. Put the dough ball on a baking tray.
Cover until almost doubled. After the dough expands, flatten with hand into a circle. Using a sharp blade, score the dough crisscross style. Brush with egg at the edges if you like. Spread garlic butter on the surface evenly. Mark again the scored with a spoon for easier putting the cheese.
Insert pieces of Mozzarella cheese to fill the scored dough. Add freshly cracked black pepper on top. Bake at 200°C (400°F) preheated oven, top-bottom heat, for 20 – 25 minutes. An oven may vary.
During baking, you might find the butter leaking out to the baking tray.
Best to eat warm to get the stretchy melting cheese.

We hope you are enjoying these virtual tours as these are probably places or events you wouldn’t normally think of visiting but they could be on your list of places to visit next. Feel free to call me anytime to talk or tell me what you have been doing while in quarantine.
Have a great day
