Leftover No-Chesse-Pizza Rolls

Greetings,

so today I decided to make a yummy pizza for lunch :) It was amazing, if I say so myself ;) But I made too much pizza dough and I also had some leftover tomatoes and ham. I didn´t want it go to waste, so I made pizza rolls, even though I had no cheese left. I had a feeling they would taste great - I was soo right! They were even better then pizza :D 

We ate them for dinner with some salad. 

Before baking
After baking
Enjoy!
When you make pizza or something similar and have a bit of ingredients left, you should make something with them - use your imagination. I mean, if you have a little understanding of which ingredients go together and how things are baked, you should succeed :) 

I don´t use much salt so I was thinking about using jam as a topping. I choose ham and tomatoes in the end, because I didn´t want them to go to waste. But jam or chocolate topping would of been awesome too. I tried that before and it worked. 

What are your solutions to avoid leftovers? We often have leftover food, because for me it is hard to cook for two. I always worry that one of us would be left hungry. I often freeze the leftovers and one of us eats them, when the other is working late. So at least it works for that kind of days. 


I hope you like them!

Brick Water Well - Without Water

Good day to you all,


I went to a quick visit home past weekend for my grandma´s birthday. Every single time I go, they have something new to brag about :) It is not something they bought, my family loves DIY projects and home decor, so it is always something they do themselves. This time it was my mother´s idea and my step dad was the "contractor". Here is the result:




We got the old bricks from a friend, when they tore down an old house. We didn´t buy them, yay :D I have to say that this brick water well is just a brick well. It does not hold water, its there for decor reasons :) It looks great and they did a really good job. My mom has a great sense for home decor and I love all of her ideas. She is very lucky that she has my step dad - they are a great DIY team. One of them very crafty and the other can build things. I have to invite them to our new home for a weekend and make a list of things I want :) 


Our backyard is a great place for family parties and barbecues. All we need is a small fire pit where we can sit at nights and chill out by the fire. Or not.. We do have a lot of places to hang out already. Oh well.. My mom is the boss :) 


With love,

Simple Getaway - Relaxing in Hungary

Greetings!

I have been on a short getaway - in Hungary. Me and my boyfriend have been longing for some vacation time so we decided to go on a camping trip by the lake. It was a great place to be, so relaxing. We had no TV, no computers, I did not even use my phone at all. We were staying in a tent and slept in sleeping bags. I thought that I would be uncomfortable but we brought two self inflammatory under mats and I slept like a baby on them!


We had the best time playing cards, making jokes, walking by the lake, cooking, and so much more. There is so much to do there - you can go fishing, kayaking, swimming, cycling, go on walks, play volleyball, football, etc.

The best part of it was, that we really talked, about stuff that matter. What do we want for ourselves in the future, our plans and hopes, making schedules on how will we make that happen and so on.. Funny part was, that I have never felt so close to someone, not even when we are at home. Because there are no distractions, only two people in peace and quiet. I love that we can just sit silent together and be OK. There is no awkwardness, just time passing by. When you can sit in silence with someone and you feel like home, you know you found your place to be. We could do that on our first date and I think that was the thing that made me love being with him the most. Have you ever felt like you are there, where you belong? Don´t you just love that place of mind? Its is just so surreal and real at the same time. Wonders of life..

Also, I have to say, that I did not cook at all, he did. That was so awesome! :) It is not like he doesn´t cook at home, but he made me feel like that is his job. Never said that I should do it or that he doesn´t want to, nothing. Like he wanted to cook. Maybe this is one of his hidden talents, that he did´t yet explore to the fullest. I should suggest that ;)

We had a nice weather, but it wasn´t so hot, that I would want to swim a lot, I swam only once. I am not a fan of sunbathing, because I tan quickly and I never had to try to be tanned. Also, I am really conscious of the damage the sun does. I tent to avoid strong sun and always use sunblock. Make sure you do to.

Here is a picture of a great place where we use to sit, talk and enjoy the scenery. So beautiful.




We went on a few long walks in the woods by the lake. The air there is so fresh, it smelled so good! Like pine cones, water and grass.




Make sure you get away on a short peaceful trip/vacation as well.. It doesn´t have to be expensive and fancy, the simpler the better. Have a blast!



With love,

Little Blue Owls

Greetings!
 

I am really liking this "Pretty Little Projects" posts. Especially since I am blogging about other peoples´ projects. I have a huge crush on this one. It is a super cute blue crochet Cell Phone Case with two little owls. Don´t you just love it? 

Danijela Grof made this one for her friend (I think) and the colours were chosen just for that person. I am not a fan of orange, but I do love blue. If this were for me, I would of chosen different colours - blue and white combination or maybe red and white. Can you picture it? :) I would even buy a huge vintage bronze button for it. Hmm.. It would fit in my purse like a charm :)


This week I am going for a short vacation. I am so happy I am going to spend some time with my family, barbecuing, having fun. This is my favourite part of summer! :) What is your favourite summer activity? Probably swimming in the ocean - I love that too! 

Well, this was a short post, but I have some packing to do :D

Have a great week!



With love,

Do What You Love

Greetings!

It is Friday again! I guess for a last few weeks Fridays have been my "blogging days" :) I have a bit more free time on Fridays also I am excited about the upcoming weekend and happy - and I like to write when I am happy. It is all about positive thoughts, hope, love, expectations, family and everything good in life.

I have been reading a lot of positive thoughts for a last few weeks, because of my work. And I got really inspired in the process. So I got a few of new ideas for my future "Pretty Little Projects". I would like to try to paint on fabric. To make this unique designs, that are not printed on T-shirts but painted on. Did you try something like that already? I could use some advice :)

So..
Today I am writing about Crochet Pillows, yet another Pretty Little Project :) I love doing posts like this. To compliment someones efforts and make them feel proud about what they have done is always nice. This cute pillows were made by Danijela Grof. She is a very creative person as you can see. I love writing about her home made stuff because I know they are always well made and made with love. When she talks about her projects, she is always so excited about them, it is very inspirational. I love when people do what they love. A lot of people claim that they don´t have time for them selves, but maybe they just don´t make time. But Danijela does it all. Great job! :)

Different shades of brown and beige make this white pillows look great. In their family room, which is cottage cozy brown with a white palette sofa, they make a great addition. Cute little flowers are a good match with poppy flowers inspired art and photography on their walls.

Now this one is a lot more girly and it was made for her home office/room. I think a lot of girls would like to have this pillow. I love interior design and the things that make all the difference when you are decorating on a budget are these little details. It is something that makes a room look yours, to reflect your personality.

This one you have already seen. White guest room. Peaceful and cozy.

Which one is your favourite?


I hope you like them all.
