Treat yo’ self… 13. October 2017

 Coffee and an apple. I didn’t eat the lemon yoghurt cream, because the texture was weirdly liquid and the taste weird.

 I decided I needed a treat after my work week, so I went to Gelato Ladies and got myself a scoop of chocolate ice cream and their Halloween special black ice cream :p People looked at me weird, when I walked around eating black ice cream xD

 Treats continue: a small pastry from RØST. It looked so good, but it was too sweet for me 😦

 Even more treats: a sourdough sandwich with salmon also from RØST. I love their bread.

 Oven baked pumpkin and potatoes with some sour cream and a side of sliced cucumber.

 Lehe Ravnodenstvie BA Russian Imperial Stout. This was a super intense flavour bomb. Loved it! It was a good company to the nightmare rift run we did with my guild in Rift 🙂

Blade Runner 2049… 11. October 2017

 Coffee and Greek yoghurt with wild berry jam (I ate two of those)

 Corn and bean soup with pork and some sour cream

 Nuts and seeds in dark chocolate

 Rice with tuna, eggs and sesame-wasabi spice

We went to see “Blade Runner 2049” in the evening. Wow, that movie was such a stunning piece of art. I loved the aesthetics and the music. The story too was engrossing and oh so terribly sad. I had a genuinely fantastic movie experience.

Pet all the puppies!… 10. October 2017

 A quark pastry, a wiener pastry and a cup of coffee.

 Pasta carbonara with some cherry tomatoes.

 Skyr with honey.

 Rice with tuna, tomatoes, sour cream and wasabi-sesame spice.

There are amazing pros and cons to working in a café. The pros are that we have a pet friendly establishment, so I get to pet a lot of cute dogs and an occasional ferret among other critters. No one has sadly brought their cat yet.

The cons are occasional unsavoury customers. For instance, this time a very drunken and smelly Russian guy first bothered women in the bus stop in front of our café, then came inside and attempted to bother my female customers. I told him to stop and managed to keep him away from my clients, but then he started professing his love to me over the counter. I played dumb, told him that I hardly understood what he was saying and invited our tall male chef to come and translate for me. The drunken guy didn’t seem to like that xD Ugh, I was so relieved when we finally got him to leave.

Bread progress… 9. October 2017

 Quark with raspberries and a cup of coffee.

 Pelmeni with sour cream.

 Vegetable and mushroom soup with sour cream.

 I made another attempt at baking rye bread. The last time the bread didn’t rise at all and I basically burnt it xD This time it rose nicely and I managed to not burn it. However, it was a bit too moist inside still. I need to buy myself an oven thermometer, because I can’t be sure how hot my oven gets and I think that is a part of the problem why my baking tends to go wrong. Anyway, this is the best rye bread I have managed so far- it actually looks like bread and it tasted good 🙂

Blade Runner… 8. October 2017

 Leftover Indian style curry with beef and cashews + rice and a couple of fried eggs. Looks horrid, was delicious.

 Shared these two pastries with my boyfriend: a giant quark pastry and a cardamom pastry. They looked might fine, but I didn’t enjoy their flavour very much.

 Rice cake with ice cream and pineapple-apple jam + a cup of coffee.

 Vegetable and mushroom soup with sour cream.

 Homemade white bread with butter. So good! We devoured almost half of the big loaf, I made, in one go XD

We watched the 1982 “Blade Runner” movie in the evening. I had never seen it, despite having read about the movie and its significance in so many research papers and pop culture analysis. I had read Philip K. Dick’s “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” and it was thrilling to me to spot all the familiar things from the book. I really enjoyed the entire aesthetic of the movie and the story too. I was, however, amused at the OH SO awkward acting, but eh xD Good movie, am excited to see the sequel to it now on big screen soon.

Have you seen the old and/or new “Blade Runner” movie(s)? Did you enjoy them? 😀

Lambic beer evening… 7. October 2017

 A cup of coffee and Ritter Sport chocolate with crispy corn flakes.

 I went and had cake with my little brother @ Ristikheina Kohvik. He had a banana-chocolate cake and I had a cherry cake.

 Alfred also had an ice cream cocktail with apple juice and I had a freshly pressed mixed juice.

 In the evening I went to a dinner even with my boyfriend at Koloniaal. The first course was shrimp-avocado cocktail. Every course was accompanied by a different lambic beer.

 My date ♥

 Cheese croquettes with cherry sauce. One of the croquettes had bacon in it, the other one was regular.

 Buttery white fish with boiled potatoes. The fish was great!

 Stewed rabbit with broccoli. The rabbit was super tender and yummy.

 Rice cake with ice cream and jam. I loved the cake a lot.
