[what I ate.] 22-28. October 2018

22. October – Venom

A banana.

Some vitamin water and a doughnut after working out. I took the second doughnut to Kerttu at her work place.

Coffee with my love in my favourite café The Living Room Café.

Popcorn. We went to see “Venom.” While not a perfect movie, it was still really fun and enjoyable. Not sure why most of the internet seems to be complaining over it. I had a blast and wouldn’t mind watching it again.

Salmon soup at my parent’s house.

Some cookies and tea.

23. October – from Tallinn to Girona

An almond pastry.

Quite crappy pelmeni with sour cream. The pelmeni were flavourless. I hadn’t bought this brand before, so it was a disappointment.

A grilled sandwich with cheese and sausage.

A latte and a chocolate croissant at KOHVer Café. Both were mediocre. I was disappointed, because I had over the top good memories of this place from the last time I was at the airport. No exquisite latte this time 😦 I mean it wasn’t bad, it was alright as far most coffee drinks go in Estonia, just I was hoping for a repeat wonderful experience.

Coffee on the plane. This was something new for me. They prepared this coffee by pouring hot water over fresh grounds in the cup. I mean I have made coffee like that at home many a time, but never have I seen such coffee being served in an establishment and with specialized disposable cups like these. Interesting and the coffee was good.

Some bread and ham late at night.

24. October

Fried eggs and bacon, some tomato, toast with cream cheese and ham. Coffee, a walnut-cereal yoghurt.

Coffee and a banana with a magnificent view. The kind of bananas I ate in Catalonia tasted different from the ones we usually can buy at home. I loved the flavour a lot and I hope I can find similar ones in Estonia too. Perhaps I should try to look in some organic food stores.

Pasta carbonara for dinner. There was also salad and baked chicken-vegetable skewers. I only remembered to take a photo midway dinner xD

Beer and ice cream.

25. October

An omelette and pa amb tomata which is a traditional Catalan breakfast staple. Basically it’s “bread with tomato” xD First you rub the toast with garlic, then with tomato and then pour some olive oil on top. Quite a tasty breakfast 😀

Some yoghurt, orange juice, coffee and cake.

Some orange and tomatoes, toast with hazelnut-milk spread and a cup of coffee.

Some cookies, brioche and a lemon muffin.

Beer.


Roast chicken with onions, plums, garlic and cinnamon, with a side of some salad and garlicy potatoes. Apparently, this type of meat dish is a typical Catalan Christmas food, but it was made for us as a special occasion 🙂 It was extremely delicious!

Yumyum!

A French style apple pie for dessert.

26. October

Orange juice, yoghurt, coffee, pa amb tomata, fried eggs, bacon.

A cappuccino and some complimentary olives. I almost never eat olives in Estonia, because most of the ones sold here taste gross. These were quite lovely tasting!

Bread and anchovies. I am not too sure about the anchovies, they weren’t bad, but I can’t say that I particularly liked them either.

Snails in spicy sauce. These were yummy!

Beer and a banana.

Vegetable puree soup with croutons and some funky French bread other guests from France shared with us.

Salad, some fried sausages (a bit too salty for my likes) and a macaroni dish with pork ribs that was oh so delicious.

Nice chocolate cake with crappy canned whipped cream.

27. October – going back to Estonia

Coconut yoghurt, coffee, omelette, bacon, pa amb tomata.

Some orange juice and chocolate chip cake.

A sugar doughnut and some coffee.

Roasted giant corn. So yummy!

Some potato chips and a cappuccino on the plane. I like the text on the cup: “Please attend to your own cappuccino before attempting to steal your neighbour’s” xD A funny twist on the airplane safety tips xD

Chicken tikka masala. It looked and smelled awful but tasted alright.

28. October

Coffee, chocolate chip bread.

Buckwheat with beef liver, sour cream and some salad.

Pocari Sweat. Good hydrating drink :p

Mushroom hunting… 23. September 2017

 Skyr with cherry jam

 Coffee and cookies

 A really crappy ham and cheese pastry. This was awfully dry.

 Brioche with honey

 Omg, look at this chicken!

 Stewed chicken and vegetables with some tomato salad

 A yummy rum pastry

 Rye bread with butter, some sült and tomato

We went to Southern Estonia for the weekend. When we got to our destination, we were greeted with a delicious chicken dish for lunch. After the glorious meal we went to the forest to hunt for mushrooms. I think we spent over 4 hours in the forests… sadly we didn’t get as many mushrooms as I had hoped, because the season for them is over, but it was still great as a long hike.

 Buzzer

 Ants

 A funky mushroom growth

 Looks fluffy, but it was not

 Old stump

 Fly amanita

 Look out?

 A drop of red

 Gloopy looking

 Mushrooms up a tree

After the mushrooms adventure, everyone else went to a party nearby, but I was too exhausted to join them, so I took a nap on the couch. Later when they were back from the party, we went to sauna which was really nice…. I’d say it was a day well spent.

Good and bad… 2-3. Dec 2016

2. December

 Fruit bread and coffee

 An apple, a couple of brioche and another cup of coffee

 Rice with tuna sauce and some tomatoes

 Some grapes

I went to my parents place to find some photos of my old pets. It sure was a trip down memory lane. Now I need to pull myself together and actually write the blog post using these photos I found. It’s difficult keeping a daily routine right now. Still trying my best however.

3. December

 Scrambled eggschicken

 Coffee and a couple of brioche buns

 Oven baked garlic chicken and potatoes, pickled cucumber and some beef sült (head cheese). I was having a bad day, so my boyfriend made this dinner ♥

 Rye bread crisps and tea

I was moody and grumpy the entire day. The evening was nice however: my boyfriend made dinner and I had a raid night with my guildies in Rift.

Pancakes and anime… 18. April 2015

 Brown rice and millet pancakes. These were awesome. The recipe for the pancakes can be found here.

 Had the pancakes with some strawberry jam. Also had a cup of coffee.

There was an anime event happening at a local mall and I ran into Miss K there by accident. We ended up watching the cosplayers together and then decided to have lunch in Tokumaru.

 Gyoza with spicy sauce

 Ebishio ramen

 My lovely lunch date ♥

 A cup of coffee and some chocolate chip brioche

 Buckwheat cake with smoked sausage, radish and cucumber (I had 3 similar “sandwiches”)
