[what I ate.] 14-23. December 2018

Whoopsie! Holidays happened and I cut my finger and needed to get stitches and then I had some rough times at work, so this is why I fell behind with posting again. Welp, time to catch up 😀

14. December

Coffee, marzipan pastry.

Chicken curry.

Chicken curry and a coconut yoghurt drink. The drink was great and had actual pieces of coconut in it which was cool.

15. December – Escape Room

Chicken nugget wrap. Coffee.

Fried squid with dip at Noya. We crashed this restaurant after going to a Leonardo DaVinci inspired escape room. Most dishes we had were shared among all of us.

Mediocre beef tartar and super yummy salmon tartar with avocado.

Hubby ate a waguy “burger”. It was alright. Good beef served with lame bread.

I really liked the tempura mushrooms and white fish. The soup was a Nordic style “ramen” where noodles were replaced with strips of squid. The ramen concept was cool, but I only ate a few bites, because the entire thing was inedible salty. Both I and another girl sent these dishes back 😦

The kitchen sent us some tasty yellowtail tataki as an apology. That was a sweet gesture of them.

My replacement dish for the ramen was Nordic shrimp “tacos.” They were okay I guess, but I would in no way call these tacos xD

In general, Noya left me feeling a bit meh… there were some tasty treats and some failures, but in the end, I felt it was too pricey, especially considering that I was still kind of hungry after sharing all the food (as the restaurant concept suggested). Not worth all the hype I have been hearing about this place, sadly.

Puchitto Soda candies. An amusing treat. (I bought a computer pad 😀 Had to show it off, because I am so happy with my newfound ability to now comfortably read fanfiction in bed 😀 )

Porridge with butter and a ham sandwich.

A smoothie with bananas and blueberries.

1. September

In the morning I went to the Uue-Maailma street festival with Kerttu and Kadi. It was super fun and I spent so much money on food and awesome goodies 😀

Vegan doughnuts with chocolate-caramel sauce and cookie bits. The doughnuts were tiny and crunchy. Not bad at all, but I have had better.

Churros!

Roasted coconut ice cream.

A potato spiral 😀 It was Kadi’s, but I got a taste.

A doughnut with chocolate and nuts. Nom.

Finger food at Josie’s birthday party. To be fair, I have no idea what most of this was 😀 Um, a chocolate cookie, potato chips, salad on a lettuce, erm cheese? rye bread with hummus, something with shrimp. I give up xD It was all delicious though. And no, the blue dude was not edible.

Movie night at Marit’s place: chips, sausages, cheese, tortilla chips with cheese, cookies etc. We watched “Red Sparrow” which was super gritty, but very enjoyable. The start of the movie was kind of weird and jarred, but as the movie progressed it kept getting more and more interesting. After the first movie we re-watched “John Wick” that was still very very good and sad.

Oh, we also had cake 😀

Cake and clay and grill… 13. May 2018

 Some quark pancakes.

 Coffee and Pavlova cake. I bought my mom a Pavlova cake for Mother’s Day and of course helped her to eat it :p and always like a good daughter, spilled coffee on the clean blanket we sat on xD

 ÖselBirch birch water with aronia juice. This was a nice and refreshing drink.

 Opened this pack of pineapple candy to share. It was good!

 Salad with sprouts, grilled couscous-chia seed sausages and grilled corn.

 More salad and grilled smoked wieners.

In the afternoon I went to a clay studio with Kadi and Miss K to try and make some stuff out of clay 😀 That was super fun! I accomplished a wonky bowl 😀

Exploding Kittens… 21. April 2018

 Fried eggs and broccolini.

 Coffee and a grilled sandwich with ham, cheese and tomato.

Kadi and Kerttu were over and we had some fun by assembling Japanese DIY candy kits. I’m glad I was feeling healthy again, because it would have been such a bummer to cancel the event. After the candy we played Exploding Kittens, a card game, for a while and it was very fun 😀

 This one was a cute one 😀 We pushed some soft candy into molds and made some adorable candy veggies. They tasted good too.

 Foam candies with nonpareils and chocolate sauce. The green one was melon flavoured and the pink one was cherry. These flavours were one of the best ones out of different ones I’ve tried so far with this type of kit.

 Foamy ice cream in a cone. This one was very bad, it tasted like baking soda and cardboard.

 A gummy skull from Kerttu.

 Some watermelon.

 Adorable and yummy chocolates we made with another kit 😀

 Dinner was mixed rice with enoki mushroom and broccolini miso soup.

 Forest berry juice and a lemon-white chocolate cookie and a pecan cookie that Kerttu provided for dessert.

DIY Japanese candy kit fun… 18. January 2018

 Greek yoghurt with apple-lingonberry jam, puffed millet, quinoa cereal and banana.

 A sourdough chicken sandwich from RØST.

 Coffee and cakes that Kadi brought. There was a Bounty cake, a raspberry-lemon meringue roll and a black currant zefir cake.

Our plan for the day was to make some Japanese DIY candy kits that had piled up on my shelf 😛

 The first one was Super Mario gummy candy maker.

 Gummies solidifying.

 The kit came with a background where you could set a scene before you ate the candy :p Sadly the gummies were not very tasty.

 Next up was slime jelly xD I was quite excited about this one, because sliiiiiiiime!

This is how we mixed it.

 The slime had a really cool texture and it was fun to mix and stretch xD Sadly again the flavour of it wasn’t to my taste.

 Then there was the digging chocolate.

 The idea behind this one was to dig out gummy candy treasure from the chocolate dirt :p The taste of these was fine I think, but nothing exciting.

 Fishing out gummy candy kit.

This was hilarious the way it worked, but again it didn’t really taste good xD

 Candied apple kit.

 These were cute and absolutely delicious 😀

 Bean-zucchini stew over glass noodles with some corn crackers.

Work… 16. January 2018

 Greek yoghurt with jam.

 Coffee and two chocolate truffles.

 Minced meat stew with beans, avocado salad and a couple of tiny boxes of candy for dessert. They were lemon candies and chocolate buttons.

 A customer left these candies as a tip 😀 I gave one to the cook.

 Mushroom stew with eggplant, some tomato, avocado and quinoa crusted pork.
