[what I ate.] 8-14. October 2018

8. October

A delicious cup of coffee before work @ The Living Room café. I had the Guatemala one. It was divine.

A slice of mushroom-bacon pizza and some chickpea-veggie soup with sour cream.

Almond-cardamom pastry.

Japanese style pork curry with rice and some pickles.

Some delicious candies.

9. October

I had a crappy morning, thus coffee and candy in a dreary bust stop on my way to work.

Chili sin carne with brown rice.

Coffee and a banana-chocolate muffin.

Japanese style pork curry with rice.

10. October – Concert in Helsinki

Yummy blueberry-raspberry yoghurt and a crappy salmon-shrimp salad on our way to Helsinki.

Chicken tofu bowl for lunch. Hubby had beef.

Dinner @ Zetor. I had sautéed reindeer with mashed potatoes, lingonberries and pickles. It was absolutely delicious. The meat was super soft and the flavour lush.

A peanut butter-chocolate chip filled taiyaki. So good!

11. October – Back to Tallinn

Epic buffet on the boat: croissants, mini doughnuts, coffee, beer, bulgur-edamame salad, ham, cold smoked salmon, some tomato and cucumber, pickles, meatballs, beetroot-oatmeal balls, scrambled eggs, pancakes, bacon, baked salmon. Everything was super good, except the bulgur-edamame salad which was flavourless and the meatballs that were a bit dry.

More coffee, chocolate mousse, vanilla ice cream and chocolate ice cream. I added some strawberry jam which was yummy and bean “crisps” that were not so very good xD

Japanese style pork curry with rice.

A yuzu mocktail and a crappy-ish coffee at the same place.

More coffee and a couple of these cookie-hazelnut-chocolate truffles.

Rough day… 18. September 2017

 Cranberry kohuke

 Two bacon and cheese pastries straight out of the oven

 Miso soup @ Tokumaru

 Chicken katsu curry. I felt upset and tired after my doctor’s appointment, so I decided to treat myself to something nice. This truly hit the spot.

 Salad with lamb’s lettuce

 Potato and minced meat stew with sour cream

I went and opened the café before my doctor’s appointment in the morning. Then I had the appointment which was… difficult. So, after I had run a few more errands, I treated myself to some nice food and then went home to sleep. The evening was quite a lot more tolerable after my long nap. Sometimes nice food and sleeping the day away are just the answers you need.

From Saaremaa with love… 12-13. June 2017

12. June

 Pelmeni with sour cream

 Coffee and a potato-bacon pastry

 Sweet cherries

 Spaghetti with minced meat sauce

I went second-hand shopping with a girl from work. We also got some stuff for work, so it was a semi-business outing I guess xD

13. June

 Coffee and milk chocolate coated hazelnuts

 Magus Mull apple-lemon lemonade

 Sweet potato fries, boiled eggs, fried bacon, some water kimchi

 Rhubarb cake

 Pasta with bacon and mushrooms

 Cheese roll (I ate 3 of those :s )

It was a funny story with the rhubarb cake. Some people came to the café and asked if they could eat their own cake there if they bought drinks from me. Apparently, a grandfather had come to visit his grandkids from Saaremaa and had brought them the cake from grandmother. Now I know it’s generally considered a no-no to go to a food establishment with your own food, but first of all, how could I deny people a chance to eat their grandmother’s cake in a comfy setting? And secondly, I could have either turned them away and sold less coffee that day or let them eat their cake and sell more coffee. I think the latter was only logical. Also, I got a slice of cake too and wow, that was some delicious rhubarb cake indeed. Good work, grandmother from Saaremaa.

Good times… 10-11. June 2017

10. June

 Coffee and three strawberry kohuke

 Magus Mull apple-lemon lemonade

 Pancake with banana and chocolate syrup

 Churros and cold brew coffee by Café y Churros at Tallinn Street Food Festival. So good! One churro was with dulce de leche and three with spicy cheese sauce. It was my first time trying churros, I am in love.

 Crispy chicken by Gostu, Kyuho’s Kitchen. Nom!

 A waffle cone with kama fluff by Vahvlihaldjad

 Bacon pizza by Street pizza

 Some grapes and pastries @ Ebe’s birthday

Foodgasm! I was at work in the morning and afterwards we popped by the Tallinn Street Food Festival. My intial idea was only to get churros, but there was so much tempting food that we ended up eating a lot xD Later in the evening we went to Ebe’s birthday party, so yeah, we totally overate xD But all was fantastic.

11. June

 Coffee, bacon-potato pastry and apple-cinnamon pastry that I shared with my bf

 Pancake with banana and honey

 Oven baked potatoes, cutlets, some salad

 Nettle marmalade. It sadly tasted mostly like sugar.

 Water kimchi! I used this recipe to make it. Turned out great, however I think it needs to sour for another couple of days.

 Potato-barley curry with mayonnaise

Boyfriend was a sweetheart and came to work with me in the morning. We had coffee and pancakes ♥ After work I popped by @ Koht. Elvira treated me to some fantastic passionfruit beer.
When I got home, boyfriend had cleaned the apartment floors. Bless him! I hate vacuuming so much. We had dinner and watched “American Gods”. Good day, good day.
