Baking and cooking… 17. February 2017

 Pasta with liver sauce and salad

 Anpanman Korokoro Booru Choco aka chocolate balls with a crunchy cookie filling

 Corn crackers with liver paté and avocado; and a cup of coffee

 Lemony zucchini soup with rice

 Raspberry-banana bread and some tea

I cancelled gym, because I was feeling down and my legs hurt. Took a bath instead and did some baking and cooking after that. Felt so much better.

[Recipe.] Lemony Zucchini Soup with Rice

This soup is amazingly creamy in texture with a hint of lemony sour taste and it goes might fine with some steamed rice.

Ingredients:

  • 1 kg of zucchini
  • Lemon zest from one lemon
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 l chicken or vegetable bouillon (I used chicken, but I imagine veggie bouillon will do great too)
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • Dill and parsley for seasoning
  • Oil for frying
  • Boiled or steamed rice for serving

How to:

  1. Cut the zucchini into smaller cubes and fry them in a bit of oil until they start emitting liquid.
  2. Transfer the zucchini with the liquid to your soup pot, add the lemon zest and lemon juice and stir it all together. Then add the stock and bring it to boil. Boil until the zucchini is nice and soft.
  3. Add in thinly sliced garlic, chopped dill and parsley, turmeric and boil for another minute. Then switch of the heat and blend the soup until no zucchini chunks remain.
  4. You may also add some salt or pepper to taste, but I personally found it unnecessary.
  5. Serve together with boiled or steamed rice.

 Enjoy!

Eat all the semlas… 16. February 2017

 A cherry jam semla and a cup of coffee

 Fried up the leftover French fry and wiener pizza. The pizza was huge, I couldn’t finish it in the restaurant yesterday.

 Corn crackers with avocado, beef ham and tomatoes. I also made a cup of instant wakame miso, but it tasted off, so I didn’t drink it.

French fry pizza… 15. February 2017

 A banana

 Corn cereal with milk and a cup of coffee

 French fry and wiener pizza @ Rohuaia Kohvik. This made my inner 5 year-old all giddy and it also tasted great 😀

I had a long day. I don’t know why I thought it would be a good idea to go to a workout at 7:30am, but I did xD My boyfriend was a sweetheart and sent me to the gym, even though he really didn’t have to get to work that early. The workout was alright even though I struggled to stay awake even while moving around xD

Then I came back home, had a quick breakfast… and woke up on the couch at 10:45am xD Oops, I almost missed the time when I was supposed to meet up with Kadi. I sprinted out of the door and just barely made it in time. Kadi drew me an awesome Deadpool picture that I will scan soon, so I can share its awesomeness. Anyway, we did a round in a couple of second-hand stores and after that I had to go to Rakvere with my boyfriend and his family. They had some business to take care there and once they were done, we had a lovely meal in a local café.

Date night… 14. February 2017

 Chocolate pudding and coffee

 Celery risotto and some of corn crackers with avocado and beef ham

 Some boiled pelmeni

 Shared dinner with boyfriend: salmon-avocado rice bowl, ramen with shrimp, tuna maki and salmon nigiri. Food from Tokumaru.

 Some cakes boyfriend brought home for dessert. Not sure what the roll cake was exactly, but the other ones are rum cakes. Boyfriend ate most of them 😛

I went out for a stroll during the day during which I took the recyclable trash to the collection point and bought myself a new lip piercing, since I lost my old one some time ago. I think the piercing I got is a bit too big however, I somehow remembered the size wrong, so I might have to switch it for a smaller one if it starts giving me trouble.

In the evening we ordered in some Japanese food and started watching the 4th season of “Sherlock”. It was a good lazy Valentine’s date at home.

Another job interview… 13. February 2017

 Scrambled eggs with roast pork and some pickled cucumbers + a cup of coffee. I only ate about half of the food, because I felt queasy and lost my appetite. Boyfriend finished it up for me.

 Jeriska’s Chips Balsamico vinegar potato chips. Ate about half the bag and then fell asleep on top of the rest of the bag on the couch.

 Celery risotto with a slice of cheese and some pickled cucumber. Again, didn’t finish this all. I’m not sure what is this with loosing appetite, it’s not the first day this has happened either, but before I just shrugged it off. Now it’s getting weird, because I don’t loose my appetite, on the contrary, I want to eat too much when I am stressed.

So, I had another job interview in the morning at another coffee shop. However, it turned out, when I got there, that the place is partly a bar and the barista is also expected to be a bartender. And I don’t want to work in a bar. It’s funny how I didn’t get that vibe from their facebook page at all and I did go through all their info, pictures and reviews. I guess I really should visit all the places before I apply for work in them, it would certainly help to avoid similar blunders the next time.

Also, why is it acceptable to not want to work in a bar for religious reasons, but not because your experience with it wasn’t agreeable to you and you simply don’t want to again? Just something that really rubbed me the wrong way during the interview.

So yeah, I was bummed about the interview. Came home, ate some chips, took a nap, my cats woke me up with a screaming fest. Life goes on.

Bought some lottery tickets and paid my gym subscription again after what… 4 months? Right after paying the gym, I noticed an acquaintance posting on their facebook page about their gym subscription and the group trainings they go to and turns out that she now goes to the same gym and frequents similar trainings than I used to. My first reaction was: fuck, I need to find a new gym. Because in my head I am still in middle school and being laughed at during PE classes. And I know nothing like that would ever happen in the gym now (probably?), but my instant reaction is that if someone I knew would see me exercising, they would make fun of me, because that is exactly what happened to me every time when I was younger. This is why I have an issue with exercising in “public…” It’s something I do only when I am home alone or in an “anonymous” group in the gym.

Anyhow, I agonized for a few hours over the fact that I might run into someone I know in the gym and they may even end up in the same training session with me (and thus see me sweat and look ridiculous?), but then decided to just try and get over myself. So, no new gym for me (mostly, because there could be familiar people in every gym and what then?). I’m still hoping I’m never going to actually see her there.

Welcome to my head. It’s full of issues.
