Grilled sandwiches with ham and cheese.
A couple of these sausages.
A sandwich with mozzarella and tomato.
Grilled beef with radish salad. This was yummy.
Coffee, chocolate kohuke and a hazelnut kohuke. I didn’t like the hazelnut one at all 😦 The chocolate one was delicious.
I was working at the Estonian Food Fair this Saturday, representing our bakery. It was a busy day and sadly I didn’t have any time to go walk around the fair. I was making signs for our booth, cutting numerous loaves of bread into pieces for people to taste, selling things of course and then I was also in charge of making burgers and sandwiches. I was so tired in the evening and my feet hurt quite a bit xD
I went and walked around the Uue Maailma Street Festival with Kerttu. This year the festival was on a considerably bigger area than usual which was kind of nice as it wasn’t as crowded. There were so many awesome artisans and artists taking part of the event and it hurt that I had a limited budget to spend. At some point, I called Indrek to complain about my distress: “Help, I want to buy things!” Some lady almost choked on her cake laughing at my exclamation xD
I didn’t snap many photos this year, as I got some annoying work messages and frankly I was in a bad mood after that, so I put away my camera. This is the crappy part of being constantly online and connected to everything. But whatever, we got a lot of lovely food and it was great none the less.
Kerttu got me a unicorn shaped macaron. It was cute and delicious 😀
A little girl was selling these cute chocolate cookie sticks, so I got us two. They were yummy.
Nettle soup with sour cream. This hit the spot as it was kind of chilly and started to rain.
A profiterole that was filled with huge amounts of divine pastry cream. It was so lush and tasty that I immediately regretted not buying more of these.
More churros for dinner and a huge cup of coffee.
When I got home from the festival, I took a long nap and in the evening my mom called and invited us to come and check out the temporary apartment where they live while their house is being renovated.
Sorrel soup with sour cream that my mom made. My mom’s cooking is still the best.
Some photos from the festival:
More umbrellas and cute street art

Oshee vitamin water magnesium + B6
Bread pudding with milk
Pasta with salmon
Triple chocolate cake 8D So delish!
In the evening, we went to listen to Professor Brian Cox with Indrek and Loviise. It was really fascinating, I learned quite a few interesting things about the beginning of the universe and life itself that I hadn’t even known to be curious about before. It was also a fun show, because a comedian named Robin Ince came and poked fun of Professor Cox and science itself as interludes. After the show, we went home and had cake. Good day.
A banana and minced meat-egg pastry
Kinder Pingui caramel

Pork marinated with wild garlic, boiled potato with wild garlic butter and some marinated cucumber. I also had a pancake with jam earlier, but forgot to snap a photo.
It was the Pelgulinna Street Festival and one part of the event was people opening one day cafés in their gardens. We went and helped out my mom with hers. We offered grilled lamb, lamb liver and some pork. I also baked some pear-halvah cake and mom sold her homemade jams and salads. We did pretty well 😀 I also managed to sell some of my old books, so yay! Ah and we had live music! My mom’s neighbour lady came and played with her band 😀 It was a good day!
Welcome sign. I drew the logo girl for mom 😀 It was only an idea sketch initially, but mom already put it in use. It still needs some proper work xD
Coffee and a couple of pears
Beer stewed pork, mashed potatoes and some salad
Avocado sandwich (had 2 throughout the day)

More waffles and some fruit
Some sandwiches for dinner
Second day in Uppsala. We did more walking around the town and visited The Uppsala University Palaeontology Museum, which was awesome. All these old animal and dinosaur bones and fossils were fascinating… and also really really scary to me xD History frightens me and I get scared in museums, even though I absolutely love visiting those places.
In the evening, we caught another overnight boat back to Estonia. It was a great trip, I loved it a lot. Sweden is a beautiful country and I am absolutely in love with their nature and landscape.

We got back home and unpacked. I took a long nap and then I spent the rest of the evening baking some cakes for the open gardens café event during the Pelgulinna street festival the next day.
Also, Loki helped me unpack
Cocoa pudding and some orange juice
Jäämari chocolate ice cream
Chicken soup and some bread

I was at work half the day and then we drove to Paldiski with Loviise and my boyfriend to take an overnight boat to Sweden.
A couple of sandwiches with cheese and sausage
Hamburgers and sweet potato fries @ Bastard Burgers
Plopp and coffee
Persian food @ Kadbano
Nomnom. Sadly, I have no idea what most of this was as I didn’t order it myself and I couldn’t read the menu anyway. It was delicious though!
Baked tomatoes, chicken and other meats on a stick
Rice with butter and some sauces. The salad was sadly very bitter 😦
Cake and ice cream
We took Loviise to her horse clinic near Uppsala and then proceeded to just hang out in Uppsala with my boyfriend. We went to Ikea where we bought a bunch of unnecessary stuff with a few useful exceptions xD Then we just walked around the city centre for a long while and visited Museum Gustavianum where they had a lot of ancient Egyptian artefacts on display. I had never seen a real mummy before… it was so cool and it also freaked me out a lot. I mean, one day you die, you get buried and then thousands of years later you end up as a museum exhibit. How fucked up is that? I felt weird taking a photo, because it used to be a real person once, so I didn’t.
Anyway, I had a great time walking around and in the late evening we had dinner at a Persian restaurant together with Loviise and her clinic people. It’s odd to me that horse training sessions are called clinics xD
