Good job, have some lemonade… 25-26. April 2017

25. April

 Coffee and carrots

 Pesto pasta and salad. I was not happy with the “salad” so I took it back to the kitchen and demanded some cucumber and tomato in it. Also, is it strange to want to eat a salad with pasta? The chef sure thought so, because apparently the pasta was already green :p

 Spicy barley and potato stew with sour cream + a sausage sandwich

 Coffee and Karl Fazer Rio De Janeiro Mint & Choco Drops infused in milk chocolate

26. April

 Coffee, a strawberry kohuke and two cranberry kohuke

 Coconut-lime smoothie bar

 Spicy barley and potato soup with sour cream

 Coffee and chocolates

 Buckwheat with chanterelle sauce, tomato-sour cream salad and some marinated cucumber

 Realist ginger-peppermint lemonade

Work and sleep, nothing much else… 19-21. April 2017

19. April

 Four grain porridge with butter and a banana

 Mulgi Krõpsud potato chips, Realist sea-buckthorn lemonade and a pancake with ham and cheese

 Pearl barley with mushroom-minced meat sauce and some salad

I splurged on my lunch, because I had a bad day. I was supposed to have a day off, but one of my co-workers didn’t show up for his shift, so I rushed in to save the day until someone else could come in and replace me. Unfortunately, I am the only one there right now without children or a second job, so it only made sense that I’d go. I guess I wasn’t really pissed off at having to work, but because having to work, because someone else didn’t attend his duties.

20. April

 Coffee and some fruit bread

 Öun apple lemonade with red currant

 Eggplant chili with rice, tortilla chips and sour cream

 A banana-honey pancake I shared with my boyfriend

 Pearl barley and rice with mushroom-minced meat sauce

21. April

 Coffee, quark with passion tefruit jam

 My new favourite tea from Marks & Spencer- refreshing cucumber, peppermint & spirulina. So good.

 Azu, which is a Tatar style pork stew, with sweet potato fries and some salad

 More coffee and a Jäämari chocolate ice-cream

 A pancake with mushrooms and bacon + some salad

I was working full day shifts for the past two days, because the guy, who didn’t show up for his shift, didn’t appear for his half-day shifts either on the next days. As far as we know, he is fine, just not allowing any contact. It has happened before. I guess he is no longer my co-worker. So, for the foreseeable future, we are understaffed in the café. They are looking for new people, but it’s not going too well as people don’t show up for their trial days and interviews like promised. Just on Thursday a lady didn’t come in for a trial day like she’d promised and only one girl showed up for an interview out of three who were supposed to come.

You better work… 17-18. April 2017

17. April

 Kiwifruit-gooseberry quark and a cup of coffee

 Some ham and cheese omelette

 A pancake with a banana and honey

 Spaghetti with vegan sausage-tomato sauce

The vegan sausage was weird xD But it was half off in the store, so I gave it a try. The spaghetti dinner was altogether delicious though. Does vegan sausage count as vegetables?

18. April

 Some fruit bread and coffee

 A piece of omelette with sweet potato in it

 My angry lunch. I had sweet potato fries, a schnitzel and a fried egg, because the chef refused to give me any soup D:

 Soothing my upset of not getting any soup with a Realist ginger-peppermint lemonade. I’m in love, this lemonade was so delicious!

 Spicy eggplant chili with rice and tortilla chips @ Koloniaal. This was so so so so good.

 PAI raspberry-beetroot-black currant smoothie

I worked from open until close in the café, because a co-worker fell ill, so I covered his shift, and boy was I tried when I got home. On one hand, I am thankful that there weren’t many customers, because otherwise I would have been dead, but on the other hand, it’s not good for business when there aren’t many customers. :s

Anyhow, here is a relevant blast from the past:

A work day and a birthday party… 14-15. April 2017

14. April

 Coffee and kinako flavoured Black Thunder chocolate

 A couple of biter of four grain porridge

 Sweet potato fries, fried eggs, bacon and salad @ Koloniaal

 Buckwheat-cabbage stew with a fried egg and sour cream

15. April

 Coffee, sandwiches with sausage

 I had friends over for a belated birthday party. On the table was: haggis flavoured potato chips, sour cream and onion potato chips, cheese, chocolate, different pastries, tuna onigiri, carrots, cucumber and marinated cucumber, bread crisps, grapes 😀

 Saku Antwärk cloudberry and lime cider that was super delicious, Saku Manchester beer

 Birthday candles 😀

It was great seeing all my friends ♥

Change of plans… 13. April 2017

 A croissant with ham and cheese, coffee

 Garlic beef jerky

 Buckwheat-cabbage stew with a fried egg

I was supposed to go museum-tripping with Kadi, but the weather was bad in the morning, so we decided to postpone it to some nicer day. Instead, I cleaned the apartment a bit and ran some errands. At some point Marit called me and I ended up hanging out with her for a few hours. Then a trip to my favourite second-hand store where I found myself another skirt, a cardigan and a cute pendant. The rest of the day was spent napping xD I truly am embracing my inner cat these days.

Ghost in the Shell… 10-11. April 2017

10. April

 Some cereal with milk

 A slice of rhubarb cake

 Mushroom soup with bits of bacon @ Koloniaal

 Rice noodles with veggie-smoked tofu sauce. There were only tiny bits of bell pepper in the veggie mix, so I thought it would be okay, but boy was I wrong 😦

 Rye bread with sausage

My second attempt of baking sourdough bread didn’t go too well either. The bread didn’t rise and was too mushy inside again, but this time it had formed some fermentation bubble-holes in it, so I guess it’s some progress at least 🙂 I got some tips from expert bread bakers in the family that I am going to try out next time.

11. April

 Coffee and a cranberry kohuke

 Four grain porridge with jam @ Koloniaal

 A giant chicken Kiev with some salad @ Koloniaal

 Apple juice, a pancake with ham and cheese + sour cream and salad @ Pannkoogimaja. Boyfriend gladly ate all the bellpeper in my salad.

We went to see the “Ghost in the Shell” movie in the evening. I absolutely enjoyed it. It was visually stunning and made me nostalgic for the anime. I am so glad that I saw in on the big screen, because of all the beauty and spectacle in it. Good times 🙂

Forgetting everything… 5. April 2017

 Rice with tuna, cabbage, sour cream, soy sauce and black sesame seeds

Spicy tomato soup over tortilla chips with some Kalamaja Vürtsleib (bread made by Paljas Pagar) @ Koloniaal

 Fries @ Diner

 Boyfriend had a giant spicy burger

 My “naked” burger with salad. We also shared a bottle of Limonaad.

I had work in the morning. Kadi came to hang out in the café near lunch time, which was awesome 😀 She waited for my shift to end so we could catch the same trolleybus home. By that point I was tired and super forgetful about everything, so half way to the trolleybus stop, I remembered that I needed to go pick up my health certificate from the doctor’s office. So, I tortured her poor tired feet and turned us around, walked to the doctor’s office, picked up my certificate, took it back to work… only to find out that I had forgotten to log out of my Spotify account over there and that I had also forgotten my phone charger xD Good thing I went back there I guess xD

Eventually, we did catch the trolleybus 😀 I was dead tired when I got home, so I took a nap. Since I was too groggy to cook dinner later, boyfriend, the sweetheart, took us to Diner for dinner 😀 Which was the greatest thing ever 😀
