To the wilderness… 23. April 2017

 Coffee and banana muffins

 Red currant juice, boiled potatoes, roast pork and some marinated cucumber

 Shared this whole hazelnuts Ritter Sport with my boyfriend

We drove to Uulu, because firewood needed to be made for the winter. I mostly tagged along so I could get out of the city for a change. I left my family to do the firewood thing and took a long long walk in the nearby woods and the sea-side. In my defence, I really really really don’t like being near chainsaws, so I wouldn’t have been much help with the work anyway. I helped to make the food for the working folk later, so I guess I wasn’t completely useless.

The zoo and an escape room… 20. September 2016

 Oatmeal porridge with honey and a cup of coffee.

 Golden fried shrimp (with potato breading and sweet & spicy sauce) @ Mack Bar-B-Que. These were so yummy!

 Damnation burger (mozzarella, fiery hot mayo, jalapeno salsa, nachos, coleslaw). So juicy and deliciously spicy! I also had a delicious orange lemonade.,

 Mulk’s porridge with chanterelle and pork sauce; some salad and buttered rye bread on the side.

We went to the zoo in the morning and ended up spending most of the day there. I keep forgetting how big Tallinn Zoo has become and how long it actually takes to walk through the entire place. I love the zoo though and I am always so happy to see how they are working over there to give all the animals better habitats. The place used to be a tiny terrible concrete box where all animals lived in small cages with no greenery around, but now it’s really becoming a beautiful place with hopefully happier animals.

One of the golden eagles took a particular interest in my boyfriend and chased him around in his cage. This was super peculiar!

Later in the evening we went to Escape Room. I’ve never been to an escape room before so I had really no idea what to expect. We tried out their “Prison Break” game where you had to, surprise-surprise, bust out of a prison in 60minutes. I am so glad I went there with smart people, because I couldn’t have figured out half of the puzzles myself xD I managed to open one code locked box, which was my only feat in the game… but it was super fun! We had about 8 minutes left on the timer when we got out. I want to go again 😀

We eventually crashed at our place where I cooked our guests some dinner. First time I managed a proper mulk’s porridge, so I think this all was a success 😀

Having a good time… 9. July 2016

I am pretty sure I had kama with kefir in the morning, but I guess I forgot to take a photo.

 Affogato @ Wabadus. My second time trying an affogato in Estonia and this one was pretty good  actually:D

 München Vaskne beer and veggie platter with dip that we ordered to share @ Hell Hunt

 Jalapeno poppers 8D I had two.

 Watermelon gummies that were surprisingly tasty

 Anna ordered some blood pudding chips @ Pööbel. I snagged a few too and quite liked them.

 A rather disappointing ox steak with mashed potatoes and mushroom sauce. The mushroom sauce was delicious, but the steak was hard and difficult to chew 😦 Not worth the money it cost (14,80€) if you ask me. I also had another beer with this meal.

We arrived at home near morning after Anna’s garden party (I think around 4 am?) and thus we ended up sleeping until 2pm almost. When we finally got our shutters open, there was an invitation from Anna to come hang out with her and the co. in town, so that’s exactly what we did. It was super fun to hang out and have some snacks and beers and food. Too bad she was visiting only for such a short time, because I would have loved to spend more time together.

My diet got thrown out of the window again, but here are some sleepy ducks to make up for it:
