Bad karma period… 23. April 2018

 Hubby brought me a banana and nuts and berries in dark chocolate.

 A naked burger and some salad.

I spent most of the day in ER, because in the morning my entire right hand swelled up and turned purple. That was so freaky. After many hours of waiting both in the waiting room and then in the procedures room, where I had many weird and unfortunate people around me (some guy who pooped all over the place right before I got invited in; a drunkard lady who was certain she had alcohol-hepatitis and the only thing she could stomach to eat was alcohol; an old man who begged to wait in the procedures room, because he didn’t want to go back to his wife in the waiting room etc.), it was learned that I have thrombosis in one of the veins in my shoulder. That is so awful, but thankfully it’s treatable and not life threatening for the time being, so I am now getting treatment for it and will go in for further tests and procedures in the future. I hope I heal quick from this and that they will find out what caused it, so I can try and prevent it in the future.

No Korean food for you… 29. September 2017

 Chanterelle soup with some nuts, seeds and some sour cream.

 Nelleulla milk chocolate with pistachios. This was an unsatisfying chocolate. It would have been better if it would have had more than four pistachios in it.

 Korean style “pancakes” with pickled radish and some sad tasting kimchi. The pancakes were undercooked and the kimchi had no flavour. The radish was tasty though.

 Toast with tuna tartare and some salad @ Grenka. Also had an ice coffee. I liked the coffee, but I didn’t like that the tuna tartare was sweet D:

There was a Korean fried chicken event at my work and we had planned to go, however, the place was packed and we felt in the way, so we decided to go and have some Korean food at Gostu instead… but Gotsu was reserved for the evening D: I was so upset! So, we settled for Grenka and the tuna tartare did fill my stomach, but didn’t sate my appetite.

Costa Rican Night… 15. September 2017

 A wiener pastry and a quark pastry. Fresh from the oven in the morning and so delicious.

 A nectarine.

 Brownie quark. My new favorite! It had tiny bits of brownie in it.

In the evening, we had a Costa Rican event at work, celebrating Costa Rican Independence Day, with amazing chefs in the kitchen preparing delicious food. The house was packed with people, so me and my boyfriend, we ate in the back office xD

 Our chefs for the night- Ráu and François. I am pretty happy to have made their acquaintance this year… and to think this happened by a mere chance 🙂

 Mixed seafood ceviche we shared with my boyfriend

 Boyfriend had a pulled beef casado with gallo pinto (refried rice with black beans), plantain slices and salad.

 I had a vegetarian casado which had creamy zucchini and corn stew instead of beef.

 Chilera (spicy pickle)

 Churros with dulce de leche

I was so happy and full after all of this!
