Last day… 16. February 2018

 A beef empanada, cocoa pudding and a chocolate kohuke for breakfast.

 A tangerine.

 Strawberry-apple cider and two lamb chebureks with sour cream.

 Fried shrimp with toast and salad at Telliskivi 15.

 My intense looking dinner date ♥ He ate a salmon steak and I had boletus risotto.

It was my last work day at Koloniaal. It wasn’t particularly different from any other work day, just in the evening I handed in my keys and packed my stuff to take home. I was somewhat tired and confused tho, so we went and had dinner before heading home. I don’t think I would have been able to cook that evening xD

In Estonia Valentine’s Day is actually known as Friend’s Day… 14. February 2018

 One and a half semla. One was with red currant jam, the half one was with blueberry jam.

 Veggie pasta with turmeric and some parmesan cheese.

 A flourless dark chocolate cake. So heavenly!

 More of the veggie pasta for dinner.

Long day at work, so no Valentine’s date. We did have a restaurant in mind, but turned out that the place closed about the same time I got off work so, meh…

My first postcard!

 Walpurgis Night

After a lot of hassle and so many tears, it’s finally done 😀 I won’t go into details, but I had so much trouble getting these cards printed. I won’t be using that particular printing service again for sure.

In other news, things went downhill for me quickly after my medication was reduced. In only a few weeks’ time I was back to an anxious mess. I suppose the stressful period in my life right now (changing jobs, having been ill, the trouble getting that post card printed, my cats getting surgery) didn’t help along either. The utmost crappies part is that I gained a lot of weight really fast during this time… I barely fit in any of my clothes and that includes my underwear D: I am now constantly feeling uncomfortable. So, needless to say, I am back to taking medication again and hopefully things will calm down for me again quickly.

Anyway, you can see more of my art on my facebook page if you are interested 🙂

And hopefully I will be back to posting in a few days. There will be a gap in food pictures for some days however as things got… ugly.

The issue with sauce… 7. February 2018

 Lemon quark and coffee.

 Pork cutlet with buckwheat and salad.

I had a fight with the chef, because he wanted to serve this dish with a small dollop of mayonnaise dip sauce, like he usually does with daily specials, but what the actual fuck?!?! Buckwheat should be served with warm sauce, not some cold mayo dip. In general, Estonians, I believe, are used to eating their dishes with warm sauces and that especially during winter time. A dip sauce is not a proper sauce! Cold sauces are more of a summer thing anyway; they are not something you want to have on your food sides during winter when it’s cold. At first he got angry with me that I asked for a warm sauce, but eventually made some. Also it’s really really lame when your daily special always comes with the same exact sauce… I am quite sure our regulars are dead tired of it by now.

 Pasta with minced meat and sour cream.

 Coffee and a semla from Pagarini. The semla was decent.

A new place… 6. February 2018

 A banana and a banana muffin.

 Vegetable soup with walnuts and balsamico.

 Sauerkraut soup with pork and barley with a ham sandwich.

 A black currant jam semla from Killuke Kooki. So supernova delicious!

 Blueberry cake also from Killuke Kooki. Was yummy as well.

I had my first day at my new job… uh, have I even mentioned that I am changing jobs? I don’t remember xD Anyway, I am between changing jobs right now. I was so nervous and stressed out, so I didn’t sleep well for the past few nights and had many horrible dreams (mostly how I messed up at the new place and they fired me on the spot). In my worried and tired state, I forgot my work clothes at home… neatly packed and ready to go by the door. How lame is that??? Thankfully boyfriend was sweet enough to bring them to me.

Anyway, my first day went well. The place wasn’t open to public yet, so I just helped with organising things and washing new equipment. Easy-peasy.
