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:

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 🙂

Working girl…3. April 2017

 Combined corn cereal and puffed rice cereal with milk

 Peko x Sanrio Characters Strawberry Party chocolates… and coffee 😀

 A pancake stuffed with ham and cheese + some uugra on the side @ Koloniaal

 Delicious quark doughnuts that my bosslady made 😀

 Mashed potatoes with turkey sauce and some salad

Needles and x-rays… 30. March 2017

 French fries from McDonalds

 Buckwheat flake porridge with ham and butter

 Japanese style minced meat and tomato curry with rice

I had a couple of doctor’s appointments in the morning where I got poked and x-rayed. It’s something you must get done when you get a job that involves food and dealing with people. Since I went out without breakfast, I started feeling quite queasy on my way to get my chest x-rayed, so that explains the fries I got from McDo. I’m sure I could have found a healthier option from the nearby gas station, but half of my brain usually shuts down when I am feeling hungry and/or sick, so the cravings usually win in these scenarios xD

A day at work, our anniversary and another day at work… 27-29. March 2017

Oh boy, adult life is tiring. I am still getting used to working again, so I have been even more tired lately than usual, so I have either been busy doing stuff or napping and haven’t found a moment to update my blog xD I am a weak human being compared to so many people, whom I know, who get so much more done in their days without a fuss.

Anyway…

27. March – Just a regular day at work. It’s tough waking up 6:30 in the morning, but at the same time I love the morning atmosphere in the café.

 Coffee, an apple and a Sakupan Choco Monaka which was cute and yummy.

 Fried egg, some bacon, sweet potato fries and salad @ Koloniaal

 Chicken soup with sour cream, rye bread with a slice of ham

28. March – I had work in the morning and in the evening, we went out on a date to an Asian fusion restaurant with my love, because it was our 7th anniversary. Lovely times were had and great food was nommed and hopefully we will have many more amazing years together 😀 Some onigiri (with feta cheese, tuna and mayo) and a cup of coffee

 Feijoada with minced meat and rice @ Koloniaal. Feijoada is a Portugese style bean stew 🙂

 Dinner @ Tai Boh. Pictured are my coconut mojito and boyfriend’s passion fruit mocktail

 Appetizers: dim sum (shrimp flavoured) and ming kham (aka one bite wraps with shrimp, peanuts and other stuff)

 Boyfriend had a lamb rack with pistachio that was absolutely delicious.

 I had tender deer bonsu which was really yummy. I’ve never eaten deer meat before properly, so it was quite an experience. I liked the taste a lot. Also, apparently bonsu refers to the part if the deer I was eating idk.

 Dessert was “silk cake” which was divine.

 I also had a cappuccino

 Camera wars 😀

 The place had a really cool wacky atmosphere

 Moosivarga nägu 😀

 ♥♥♥

 Mandatory bathroom selfies :p

 Oppan Moomin style 😀

29. March – I was working the evening shift, so I got home maybe around 11pm xD Bf was sweet enough to come and pick me up from work, so I didn’t have to commute back home alone ♥

 Coffee and two cherry pastries

 Pasta Bolognese and complimentary bread @ Da Vinci

 Coffee and some zefir

 Feijoada with vegan wieners and rice @ Koloniaal. The vegan wieners tasted exactly like the real stuff to which I was surprised xD
