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.

Junkfood kind of day… 22. March 2017

 Fried potatoes, sausage sandwiches and marinated cucumber.

 Kadi came to visit and she brought green tea cake and cookies from Killuke Kooki 😀 We had them with some peppermint tea. That cake was so so so good!

 Had about 1,5 bottles of beer… maybe a bit more.

 We had fun assembling some Japanese DIY candy kits. This one was called “Nyokonyoko Kororon” or as we called it “creepy candy wormies” xD The candy tasted weird and I didn’t like it much. It was fun to make though :p

This is a short vid of how the wormies were made:

 Sour cream and onion senbei that was spot on with the beer

 This candy kit was “Kurabete Neruneru”. The green goo was melon flavoured and the yellow one was pineapple flavoured. We both really liked the pineapple taste.

 Poppin’Cookin’ “Tanoshii Raamenya-san” aka “Fun Ramen Restaurant” ;D This was epic fun to make. It actually looked like real ramen and gyoza xD The gyoza tasted really nice too, the ramen had a weird texture, but didn’t taste bad.

 Chocolate ice cream break

 Soy flavoured senbei that also went great with the beer

 Tasty chickpea soup with feta cheese and assorted nuts and seeds. I followed this recipe to make the soup.

I had a really lovely and fun day with Kadi. The DIY candy kits were hilarious to assemble and after we were done with these, we just chilled with some beer and chattered away about all sorts of nonsense ♥

Most of the DIY candy was left for my boyfriend xD He appreciated it and ate them all without complaint when he got off work xD

Train to Busan… 9. March 2017

 Some fried potatoes I ate quickly before running off to my Bodybalance class

 Coffee and cake

 Had a couple of strawberries too

 Evening snacks: chocolate brownies, different bread crisps with dip and delicious delicious hummus, some crackers and melon-banana-raspberry smoothies

I had a busy day. Went to the gym in the morning, then had coffee with mom and grandmother. After that I got groceries and did some last-minute cleaning at home. In the evening, I had friends over, we had some smoothies and watched a Korean zombie movie called “Train to Busan.” It was interesting to see a Korean take on the zombie genre instead of the regular Hollywood stuff. I enjoyed the movie and the company a lot.

Wild strawberries… 21. June 2016

 Corn flakes with milk

 Some melon and a cup of coffee.

 Rice with crab meat, tomatoes, an egg and some soy sauce + a cheese bun

 Wild strawberries that I picked while my boyfriend was doing his enduro thing.

*

I went along with my boyfriend and his brother to an enduro track. While they were practicing, I walked around in the nearby forest and picked some wild strawberries. Yay for strawberries!

He looks happy with his new bike

Showing off

Wroom-wroom

Cats make a nice backdrop for photos… 2. June 2016

 Coffee and a banana

 A smoothie I made of milk, some melon, blueberries and a few raspberries

 I popped open a bag of cherry jelly hard candy. I was doubtful about these, but they were surprisingly good actually. Nice tasting hard candy with a good jelly filling.

 Vegetable stew with sour cream and shredded beetroot salad dumped in it.

 Fluffy milk chocolate. This had a super fluffy and funny texture, but it tasted great.
(NB!: I didn’t eat the cat!)
