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.

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!

With love,

Brick Water Well - Without Water

Greetings,

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,
