On baking duty… 28. September 2017

 I ate two wiener pastries. They were straight from the oven and oh so delish.

 Then I made mango-passion fruit quark cake at work and shared a slice with the chef

 Chicken sauce with potatoes and salad

 Coffee and some zefir

 Chanterelle soup with some nuts and seeds

At the lake… 24. September 2017

 Coffee and several sandwiches with butter and honey

 Porridge

 Leftover chicken and veggies from the day before, some sült and tomato-cucumber salad

 Coffee and a breakfast burrito (egg, bacon, potatoes) I shared with my bf

In the morning we helped Agu and Liia to set up a new corral for their cows and then move them to their new corral. Afterwards we went down to a lake. The others went out on a boat and tried to catch some fish. I stayed on the bridge, because I don’t feel comfortable with people swishing around fishing hooks near me :p It was so nice, warm and calm. It was such a shame we had to drive back to Tallinn. I would have loved to have spent another couple of days at the country side.

 There was water in the boat

Mushroom hunting… 23. September 2017

 Coffee and cookies

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

 Omg, look at this chicken!

 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.

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.

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.

A long day full of stuff… 6. September 2017

 Salmon bagel from a convenience store for breakfast. It’s probably full of all sorts of crap that is bad for you, but I like it and was craving for it.

 Chicken pasta

 Pancake stuffed with banana slices and a cup of coffee

Work was nice, because Marit and Kadi came to hang out with me in the café for a while 🙂
After work I went to my parent’s place to help my mom carry some stuff to storage. Tont came to help too. When we were done, my mom fed us dinner:

 Vegetable stew with sour cream

 A divine pastry cream filled profiterole and some coffee

I passed by the café that sold these profiteroles at the Uue Maailma Street festival when I was walking to my parent’s place and got the urge to check if they sold them in their café too. They did and I got some, because SOGOOD!
