meh… 24. April 2017

 Coffee, bacon-onion pastry, Parrots organic Inca’n’Chocolate almond bar with seeds

 A pancake with chicken and a pancake with banana and honey. The chef decided to be economical and served the sweet and savoury pancakes on the same plate. My chicken tasted of honey xD

 Fried potatoes with eggs and bacon

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:

Great day… 16. April 2017

 A Karelian pastry, omelette with sausage, and a cup of coffee

 Burnt tasting coffee @ PEPS

 Their pancakes with mushroom sauce were delicious however

 Had several slices of this lemon cake at my mom’s place with some tea

 Scrambled eggs with some tomatoes, cucumber and marinated cucumber

It was an eventful day. In the morning I went to Snikt with Miss K and bought myself a Spider-Man comic. Then we had our second breakfast of pancakes and then I met up with Janice and her friend. I met Janice online in a dolling community maybe 15 years ago or so and we have been on and off penfriends over the years. It was fantastic to finally meet her in person.

We had some coffees here and there and I showed them around the town for a few hours too. It was so much fun. Later I walked them to the harbour and headed home to make dinner. Dinner got a bit postponed, because my boyfriend went to help my mom with some computer stuff and I tagged along. Good thing I did, because there was lemon cake xD

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

Café life… 23. March 2017

 Coffee and Take a Bite Love snack bar (dates, cashew, cherry, cranberry, almond, sea salt, clove, cinnamon)

 A pancake with mushrooms @ Koloniaal

 Chickpea soup with feta cheese, cashews and seeds

 Had two sausage sandwiches with the soup too

It sucks to wake up so early for work ( 6:30 D: ), but at the same time I quite enjoy the quiet mornings in the café: listening to music, sweeping the floors, lighting candles and making coffee for the trickle of sleepy people craving for their first dose of caffeine.

We also had some sourdough starter on sale in the shop, so I got a pack for myself too and made the dough in the evening. It needs to sit now for about 24 hours. We’ll see what comes out of this if anything :p
