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.

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.

Don’t insult your friend before they have paid for your food… 5. September 2017

 Carrots and coffee for breakfast

 Cookie balls

Kadi bought me the carrots and cookie balls in the morning. I have awesome friends who know that the way into my heart is through food! xD I may or may not have sleepily insulted her when she was paying for the items. It was hilarious. I should not be allowed to talk before I am fully awake.

Uue Maailma Street Festival… 2. September 2017

I went and walked around the Uue Maailma Street Festival with Kerttu. This year the festival was on a considerably bigger area than usual which was kind of nice as it wasn’t as crowded. There were so many awesome artisans and artists taking part of the event and it hurt that I had a limited budget to spend. At some point, I called Indrek to complain about my distress: “Help, I want to buy things!” Some lady almost choked on her cake laughing at my exclamation xD

I didn’t snap many photos this year, as I got some annoying work messages and frankly I was in a bad mood after that, so I put away my camera. This is the crappy part of being constantly online and connected to everything. But whatever, we got a lot of lovely food and it was great none the less.

 Churros!

 Kerttu got me a unicorn shaped macaron. It was cute and delicious 😀

 A little girl was selling these cute chocolate cookie sticks, so I got us two. They were yummy.

 Nettle soup with sour cream. This hit the spot as it was kind of chilly and started to rain.

 A profiterole that was filled with huge amounts of divine pastry cream. It was so lush and tasty that I immediately regretted not buying more of these.

 More churros for dinner and a huge cup of coffee.

When I got home from the festival, I took a long nap and in the evening my mom called and invited us to come and check out the temporary apartment where they live while their house is being renovated.

 Sorrel soup with sour cream that my mom made. My mom’s cooking is still the best.

Some photos from the festival:

 These living statues were amazing

 Strawberries. Sadly, these ones didn’t have much of a taste.

We spent the Midsummer’s Eve at our friend’s place. We had a small bonfire, grilled some meat and just hung out. We got home at a semi-decent hour which was pretty remarkable for Midsummer’s Eve xD

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 😦
