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 🙂

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.

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? 😀

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!
