Exploding Kittens… 21. April 2018

 Fried eggs and broccolini.

 Coffee and a grilled sandwich with ham, cheese and tomato.

Kadi and Kerttu were over and we had some fun by assembling Japanese DIY candy kits. I’m glad I was feeling healthy again, because it would have been such a bummer to cancel the event. After the candy we played Exploding Kittens, a card game, for a while and it was very fun 😀

 This one was a cute one 😀 We pushed some soft candy into molds and made some adorable candy veggies. They tasted good too.

 Foam candies with nonpareils and chocolate sauce. The green one was melon flavoured and the pink one was cherry. These flavours were one of the best ones out of different ones I’ve tried so far with this type of kit.

 Foamy ice cream in a cone. This one was very bad, it tasted like baking soda and cardboard.

 A gummy skull from Kerttu.

 Some watermelon.

 Adorable and yummy chocolates we made with another kit 😀

 Dinner was mixed rice with enoki mushroom and broccolini miso soup.

 Forest berry juice and a lemon-white chocolate cookie and a pecan cookie that Kerttu provided for dessert.

Cool things I found while wasting time online #28

This is a post of interesting things I’ve found online (and sometimes offline). These things may include among others: recipes, fandom stuff, interesting articles or artwork. I tried doing this post weekly, but sometimes I was too busy to surf the web or simply didn’t find anything noteworthy the entire week, so now I will post this whenever I finally have something to share 😛

I’m back with posting random found crap again 😀 I thought I wouldn’t do it until I got my blog history restored, but that is going super slow and the interesting things I feel like sharing keep piling up. So there :p Anyway, drop me a line or two if you liked or found anything interesting in my choices as well 😀

The Bifrost Incident… 7. April 2017

 Rice cereal with milk

 Tomato soup with sour cream and mozzarella

 A cheesecake flavoured kohuke

 Buckwheat-cabbage stew with sour cream

 A cherry pastry and a chocolate doughnut

I spent the day listening to The Mechanisms album “The Bifrost Incident” on Spotify. I am so in love with it. It’s as if the band had opened my head up, fished around in it for ideas and then wrote this album. It’s brilliant. I had goosebumps and was jumping around the room in excitement while listening to this masterpiece. This hasn’t happened to me in a long while.

Basically, it’s like a story told in a musical form, with different voices singing as different characters. If you are into Norse mythology, steampunk, Lovecraft or all the previously mentioned, be sure to give this album a listen. You can listen or buy the album here or look it up on Spotify 🙂

  • Salvador Dali’s Toffee With Pine Cones. My first reaction to the title was bewilderment as I had always thought that actual pine cones weren’t edible, but it turns out that the recipe calls for pine nuts instead which makes so much more sense :p It seems like a fun and differently tasting candy snack idea.
  • This Goulash Soup makes my mouth water just by looking at the photos illustrating the recipe. I want to eat this so badly!
  • An interesting article about “clean eating” and why most things it claims to achieve for you doesn’t actually happen. It’s not that I don’t believe in trying to eat healthy, whatever that actually means then, it’s just that any diet taken to  extreme can do more harm than good, no matter how “healthy” it’s promoted to be.
  • I need this Spider-Man shirt, because the slogan is true! 😀
  • Aww Sanrio’s new character, Aggretsuko,  is adorable and I can so relate to her having been an office worker myself before 😀
  • This Creamy Chicken and Asparagus Bake sounds so good! I wish asparagus was in season so I could make it *drools*
  • Kickin’ Jambalaya with Cauliflower Rice. I am kind of done with cauliflower right now, after that delicious but awfully smelly soup I made, but wow, doesn’t this dish just sound absolutely delicious?
  • I want it  to get colder again and snow outside and then I want to make this Instant Pot Chicken Paprika to warm the heart 😀
  • Also, do you like the new decoration in my kitchen? Yay for Spideypool 😛
