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

 Valvavad lõket

From Saaremaa with love… 12-13. June 2017

12. June

 Pelmeni with sour cream

 Coffee and a potato-bacon pastry

 Sweet cherries

 Spaghetti with minced meat sauce

I went second-hand shopping with a girl from work. We also got some stuff for work, so it was a semi-business outing I guess xD

13. June

 Coffee and milk chocolate coated hazelnuts

 Magus Mull apple-lemon lemonade

 Sweet potato fries, boiled eggs, fried bacon, some water kimchi

 Rhubarb cake

 Pasta with bacon and mushrooms

 Cheese roll (I ate 3 of those :s )

It was a funny story with the rhubarb cake. Some people came to the café and asked if they could eat their own cake there if they bought drinks from me. Apparently, a grandfather had come to visit his grandkids from Saaremaa and had brought them the cake from grandmother. Now I know it’s generally considered a no-no to go to a food establishment with your own food, but first of all, how could I deny people a chance to eat their grandmother’s cake in a comfy setting? And secondly, I could have either turned them away and sold less coffee that day or let them eat their cake and sell more coffee. I think the latter was only logical. Also, I got a slice of cake too and wow, that was some delicious rhubarb cake indeed. Good work, grandmother from Saaremaa.

End of the trip… 26-27. May 2017

Second day in Uppsala. We did more walking around the town and visited The Uppsala University Palaeontology Museum, which was awesome. All these old animal and dinosaur bones and fossils were fascinating… and also really really scary to me xD History frightens me and I get scared in museums, even though I absolutely love visiting those places.

In the evening, we caught another overnight boat back to Estonia. It was a great trip, I loved it a lot. Sweden is a beautiful country and I am absolutely in love with their nature and landscape.

 Birdie caught a wormie

 Mummified cat O_O

 How cute is that depiction of the fossil?

 This is why I am afraid of the water

 A banana and a coconut bar in milk chocolate

 Porridge with honey and some coffee

We got back home and unpacked. I took a long nap and then I spent the rest of the evening baking some cakes for the open gardens café event during the Pelgulinna street festival the next day.

 Also, Loki helped me unpack

Bags under my eyes are here to stay… 15-16. May 2017

15. May

 A banana

 Peanut butter energy bar

 Pelmeni with sour cream

 Spaghetti with tuna-veggie sauce

I went and picked up my new ID-card at the police office. I hoped that the bags under my eyes would be less visible on the light photo on the ID, but they are quite very much there. I guess I just should somehow try to accept that the bags are there to stay. You can’t fight your genes I suppose.

16. May

 A couple of bananas and a cup of coffee

 Bacon-onion pastry

 Four grain porridge with berries @ Koloniaal

 Roasted eggplant soup and some coriander bread @ Koloniaal

I worked all day and basically went to sleep as soon as I got home xD

Work, clinic and friends… 4-5. May 2017

4. May

 Coffee and a kohuke. The kohuke wasn’t very good and I didn’t eat the Cherry-Spice Ampstükk, because it tasted horrible. Disappointing breakfast.

 Breakfast take 2: porridge with honey and butter

 A smoked tofu burrito @ Koloniaal

 Pelmeni in spicy chili sauce with salad

5. May

 Rice crackers with ham, cucumber and sesame seeds

 Smoothie and brownies from Blender

 Saku Antvärk honey pear cider

 Saku Antvärk lime cloudberry cider. Look at my adorable Yurio charm that Eva got me 😀

 Coffee ♥

 Laura Moon’s chili with rice and sour cream

 Cheesecake from Killuke Kooki

I had a doctor’s appointment in the morning which was super stressful. At first my doctor was late and then it was just emotionally quite hard. I was emotionally exhausted afterwards, so I went and blasted a gift card I had in Blender for and energy boost in the form of a delicious smoothie and some brownies.

Later in the evening I had Eva and Marit over for some chili and drinks. Eventually, Indrek came home as well and brought cake. I totally overate :p

Sleepy Saturday… 25. March 2017

 Corn cereal with milk

 A pear

 Coffee time with Miss K @ Café Mademoiselle

 I had a “naked” burger that was delicious.

 Miss K had a risotto with zucchini and sesame seeds. We shared a bit of each other’s food.

 Spinach pelmeni with sour cream and some salad

I think I spent most of my Saturday sleeping. I woke up late, puttered around for a bit and made my first ever attempt of baking sourdough rye bread. I think the sourdough starter hadn’t properly kicked in yet, even though I let it sit for over 24 hours. The bread didn’t raise properly and was doughy inside. It did however taste alright. Better luck next time perhaps.

Then I felt sleepy and decided to take a “short” nap, but ended up sleeping for almost 3 hours xD

In the evening, I had a mission to go get cat food from the store and conveniently also organized to meet up with Miss K for some coffee and food too. It was great 😀 However, they guy sitting next to us, reading a book and drinking wine, obviously didn’t appreciate our discussions on eating bugs and maggots and about killing chickens as he kept angrily looking up from his book and glaring at us xD

I ended up going to sleep again super early in the evening. Well, around 11 pm is early for me at least.
