Marzipan Hulk has a big “zucchini” :p

We also made green chocolates and had pistachio ice cream. The movie was kind of meh, but the dinner was superb xD

I am going to change the format of my food project a bit… 9-10. June 2018

I have had a bit of a blogging crisis AGAIN lately as you have perhaps noticed. I like my food photo project, but it annoys me that I can’t seem to keep up the daily posting. For a while I considered just abandoning the project altogether, but then decided against it. Instead I will try to make weekly posts and see how that will work. Then perhaps I will find motivation to blog about other things as well, because right now I have always lost interest in doing anything else after I have managed to complete my daily food post.

So, I will catch up with my posts and from then on, I will do my food posts on Mondays.

9. June – Sweeney Todd

We drove to Southern Estonia for the weekend. First, we stopped by at Ly and Raul’s place to celebrate Raul’s birthday. There was loads of food xD In the evening we went to Tartu and saw “Sweeney Todd- Fleet Streeti Põrgulik Pardur” at Vanemuise Teater which was fantastic! The lighting and costumes were fabulous and I wholeheartedly enjoyed every minute of the performance.

There was coffee, a cheese pastry and an almond pastry.

One of these strawberry pastries.

Grilled pork and some salad.

Sweet cherries and strawberries.

Salmon pizza.

Black currant cake.

Coffee and Mrs. Lovette’s meat pie XD

We hung out in Karula for most of the day where Indrek helped Loviise build some horse jumping obstacles and I helped her to film one of her horses. In the evening we drove back to Tallinn.

Coffee, fried eggs and some tomatoes.

Super delicious homemade beef burger that Agu served us. So yum!

Some vanilla ice cream.

Fancy coffee time… 6. October 2017

 A quark pastry

 Farmi Kreeka Kohuke. A vanilla kohuke with Greek yoghurt. It was creamy and good.

 I had late lunch and some coffee with Marit @ The Living Room Café. We started with some pita bread and hummus. Yum!

 My lovely lunch date ❤

 I had a bacon beef burger with some tortilla chips. It was yummy!

 A banana

 Indian style curry with beef, champignons and cashews, served with rice and some salad.

Jam, jam, making jam… 11. September 2017

 Rye bread with butter and coffee for breakfast

 I spent most of the day cleaning the lingonberries Loviise picked for me.

 Then I set a jarful of lingonberry kvass to ferment. Going to be an interesting experiment for sure. The yellow glob in the bottom is honey.

 Rye cereal with honey and milk for lunch

 After that I made lingonberry-apple jam.

 A luscious chanterelle beef burger from Diner. OMG HEAVENNNN! I had planned to make dinner at home, even bought the ingredients, but since my stove is tiny and the bubbling jam pot was big, I had no room on the stove for anything else. Thus, the take-out.

 But I gots jam!
