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.

I had two days off work, so I did some errand running in town, dyed my hair green, prepared some water kimchi and started on my first sourdough starter. I’d say that it was a productive two days despite me failing to get the apartment clean. Oh well, dust bunny and kitty litter free floors are overrated anyway.

Also, I have lost 6kg! 😀 So hyped!
About 7 more kg to go now 😦

25. May

 Cocoa pudding

 A couple of sandwiches with cheese and sausage

 Chocolate croissant

 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

Sun stroke… 19. May 2017

 A persimmon and rhubarb-oats-spinach yoghurt. The persimmon was surprising, because it had seeds in it. Usually the ones we get in Estonia, never have any seeds. The yoghurt was a good rhubarb yoghurt, but it was disappointing as well, because again, I didn’t find any spinach in it.

 A very gooey cherry pastry

 Wild garlic pesto pasta @ Koloniaal

 Limoncello ice cream

 Vegetable soup with garlic and mushrooms

 Milk chocolate with honey roasted almonds and some coffee

Well, it was the first truly warm, even hot, day. I am not fond of weather too warm, because as usual, my hands and feet swelled up. I felt awful going home from work, feeling too hot, my head started to ache, hands and feet swollen, I was sweaty all over and it was annoying to walk, because my sweaty thighs were rubbing together and hurt. I think it took me around 30 minutes to get home with a stop to the grocery store. I was feeling so sick, head hurt like crazy, so I decided to pop some painkillers and to take a nap… I did so only to wake up an hour later all covered in cold sweat and shivering. I’m sure it was a sun stroke and that it happened because I didn’t wear a hat. The only hat I had with me was a very thick winter hat and I really didn’t want to wear that in the scorching heat. Anyway, I think I’ve had enough of summer for this year, thanks.
