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.

Coffee grinder… 4. October 2017

 Coffee, a pear and a nectarine

 A quark pastry

 A different style of pasta with squid, grated cheese and some baby tomatoes

 A pancake stuffed with banana slices and drizzled with honey

 A glass of red wine after work. It was a lame wine, the taste of it disappeared in your mouth, so it felt you were simply drinking something… meh.

 Vegetable stew with smoked lamb and some sour cream on top

We went and bought a nice coffee grinder with my boyfriend after we both got off work. It was an early birthday present for my boyfriend that is actually kind of for the both of us :p The grinder will take a bit of getting used to and we will have to figure out the fineness of the grind that is suitable for our coffee machine. The first attempt was with a recommended setting for filter coffee and it wasn’t good at all xD I can’t wait to buy all the amazing artisan roasted beans tho! First I’ll get the Autumn blend from Haba when pay day arrives this month and I think they are going to ship my beans from Dodger Coffee Co soon as well 😀 So excited for coffee!

Squid… 3. October 2017

 Coffee and orange flavoured cocoa pudding.

 Kalev nuts and seeds with a bit of dark chocolate. This is delicious.

 Hot cocoa and pasta with squid

 Coffee and matcha cake

 Vegetable stew with smoked lamb and some sour cream on top

Why… is there water all over the floor?… 30. September 2017

 Potato gnocchi with tomato and meat from Attimo. These were divine tasting!

 Spaghetti with seafood also from Attimo

 Quark with praline

 Chanterelle soup with sour cream and potato vareniki also with sour cream

Our kitchen was closed at work due to an emergency, so I didn’t get to eat any breakfast. I hadn’t brought anything with me that day and had hoped for some porridge at work. It took me and the chef over four hours to eliminate the emergency and when we were done, I was ravenous. I ordered in some food and devoured it all xD

A long day full of stuff… 6. September 2017

 Salmon bagel from a convenience store for breakfast. It’s probably full of all sorts of crap that is bad for you, but I like it and was craving for it.

 Chicken pasta

 Pancake stuffed with banana slices and a cup of coffee

Work was nice, because Marit and Kadi came to hang out with me in the café for a while 🙂
After work I went to my parent’s place to help my mom carry some stuff to storage. Tont came to help too. When we were done, my mom fed us dinner:

 Vegetable stew with sour cream

 A divine pastry cream filled profiterole and some coffee

I passed by the café that sold these profiteroles at the Uue Maailma Street festival when I was walking to my parent’s place and got the urge to check if they sold them in their café too. They did and I got some, because SOGOOD!

Töö ja jaanid… 22-23. June 2017

22. June

 NuGo FIBER d’LISH peanut chocolate chip energy bar and some coffee. The energy bar was okay, but not one of my faves.

 A cheese roll

 Oatmeal porridge by cinnamon and honey

 Custard flavoured Choco Aanpan snacks and more coffee

 Salmon pasta with some salad

 Jäämari chocolate ice cream

 Pelmeni with sour cream

 Oven baked potato slices

23. June

 Coffee, chocolate cake

 I baked some bread with black sesame seeds. It turned out fantastic.

 Coffee, different crisps, some salad and grilled chicken. Later I had a couple of grilled sausages too.

 Strawberries. Sadly, these ones didn’t have much of a taste.

We spent the Midsummer’s Eve at our friend’s place. We had a small bonfire, grilled some meat and just hung out. We got home at a semi-decent hour which was pretty remarkable for Midsummer’s Eve xD
