easy pizza scrolls

These little pizza scrolls are so easy to whip up
(if I can do it anyone can)
and they're great for afternoon tea or popping
into lunchboxes.
They also freeze well if you make a double batch.
You will need ~
2 cups s/r flour with a pinch of salt
90g butter , 2/3 cup milk
pizza sauce, pineapple, ham, grated cheese
Sift the flour and salt and then use your fingers
to rub the butter in until it looks like fine breadcrumbs.
Add the milk and use a round bladed knife to mix
until it starts holding together.
Tip the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead
gently until it's all smooth.
Use a rolling pin and roll out the dough to about 30cm x 40cm.
Spread the pizza sauce over the entire base, top with
grated cheese and then all of your favourite toppings.
Starting from the long side roll up firmly to make a log.
Cut through the log ~
1cm makes crispy pieces
3cm makes more doughy pieces.
Put them all on a baking tray that is covered
with non-stick baking paper.
Sprinkle some cheese over the top
and bake them at 210c for about 25 minutes
or until they are golden brown.
I make these fairly often and my dogs have
never tasted them so they must be alright.
P.S. You could just use the dough
 and try vegemite or nutella scrolls.

let me try again

I'm going to have another go at finishing something
Last year I didn't get finished in time.
The whole sorry saga is here.
Everything needs to be written in my diary , everything.
I am so scattered I never know what my kids
are up to unless I check the diary.
Unfortunately the diary can be lost for days under paint charts
or crochet or just mingled with all the junk at my place.
I also get a bit distracted and madly
start things like this old cupboard.
but I think it turned out ok .
Now I'm off to work on my scarf and think
about the competition.
I wonder really where my kids are............

just because

Well here I am again.

Making silly things just because.

Maybe I really am going bananas.

lying about

I'm still taking it easy getting over this flu.
At least I have the kitten with the biggest paws
in the whole world to keep me company.
