[what I ate.] 22-28. October 2018

22. October – Venom

A banana.

Some vitamin water and a doughnut after working out. I took the second doughnut to Kerttu at her work place.

Coffee with my love in my favourite café The Living Room Café.

Popcorn. We went to see “Venom.” While not a perfect movie, it was still really fun and enjoyable. Not sure why most of the internet seems to be complaining over it. I had a blast and wouldn’t mind watching it again.

Salmon soup at my parent’s house.

Some cookies and tea.

23. October – from Tallinn to Girona

An almond pastry.

Quite crappy pelmeni with sour cream. The pelmeni were flavourless. I hadn’t bought this brand before, so it was a disappointment.

A grilled sandwich with cheese and sausage.

A latte and a chocolate croissant at KOHVer Café. Both were mediocre. I was disappointed, because I had over the top good memories of this place from the last time I was at the airport. No exquisite latte this time 😦 I mean it wasn’t bad, it was alright as far most coffee drinks go in Estonia, just I was hoping for a repeat wonderful experience.

Coffee on the plane. This was something new for me. They prepared this coffee by pouring hot water over fresh grounds in the cup. I mean I have made coffee like that at home many a time, but never have I seen such coffee being served in an establishment and with specialized disposable cups like these. Interesting and the coffee was good.

Some bread and ham late at night.

24. October

Fried eggs and bacon, some tomato, toast with cream cheese and ham. Coffee, a walnut-cereal yoghurt.

Coffee and a banana with a magnificent view. The kind of bananas I ate in Catalonia tasted different from the ones we usually can buy at home. I loved the flavour a lot and I hope I can find similar ones in Estonia too. Perhaps I should try to look in some organic food stores.

Pasta carbonara for dinner. There was also salad and baked chicken-vegetable skewers. I only remembered to take a photo midway dinner xD

Beer and ice cream.

25. October

An omelette and pa amb tomata which is a traditional Catalan breakfast staple. Basically it’s “bread with tomato” xD First you rub the toast with garlic, then with tomato and then pour some olive oil on top. Quite a tasty breakfast 😀

Some yoghurt, orange juice, coffee and cake.

Some orange and tomatoes, toast with hazelnut-milk spread and a cup of coffee.

Some cookies, brioche and a lemon muffin.

Beer.


Roast chicken with onions, plums, garlic and cinnamon, with a side of some salad and garlicy potatoes. Apparently, this type of meat dish is a typical Catalan Christmas food, but it was made for us as a special occasion 🙂 It was extremely delicious!

Yumyum!

A French style apple pie for dessert.

26. October

Orange juice, yoghurt, coffee, pa amb tomata, fried eggs, bacon.

A cappuccino and some complimentary olives. I almost never eat olives in Estonia, because most of the ones sold here taste gross. These were quite lovely tasting!

Bread and anchovies. I am not too sure about the anchovies, they weren’t bad, but I can’t say that I particularly liked them either.

Snails in spicy sauce. These were yummy!

Beer and a banana.

Vegetable puree soup with croutons and some funky French bread other guests from France shared with us.

Salad, some fried sausages (a bit too salty for my likes) and a macaroni dish with pork ribs that was oh so delicious.

Nice chocolate cake with crappy canned whipped cream.

27. October – going back to Estonia

Coconut yoghurt, coffee, omelette, bacon, pa amb tomata.

Some orange juice and chocolate chip cake.

A sugar doughnut and some coffee.

Roasted giant corn. So yummy!

Some potato chips and a cappuccino on the plane. I like the text on the cup: “Please attend to your own cappuccino before attempting to steal your neighbour’s” xD A funny twist on the airplane safety tips xD

Chicken tikka masala. It looked and smelled awful but tasted alright.

28. October

Coffee, chocolate chip bread.

Buckwheat with beef liver, sour cream and some salad.

Pocari Sweat. Good hydrating drink :p

Infinity War… 8. May 2018

 Oat-rice porridge with slices of chocolate orange, chia seeds and roasted sunflower seeds.

 Homemade lemonade @ Gotsu

 Hubby had some bulgogi and ssambap.

 I had kimchi stew with pork and some rice.

Also had popcorn at the movies…

 Banana bread.

We went to see “Avengers: Infinity War” in the evening with hubby and Miss K. Wheesh, that movie was a ride… I was quietly muttering “oh no no no no” to myself a lot when watching the story unfold. It was just heart-breaking how many of my favourite characters died D: I mean, some of them will most likely return, but still…

It was confusing. The movie was quite upsetting to watch, but it was also very very good… and funny! Despite the horribly heavy subject matter. I also didn’t expect to sympathize with the main villain :/ I mean I felt for him, just did not agree with his methods etc. It was weird and unexpected.

I was quite peeved however that my hope of my OTP having some screen time together again never happened… that hope disappeared very quickly, because they killed one of them off in the first 5 minutes of the film 8D

Anyway, I am so looking forward to the next one!

Unicorn… 30. April 2018

 A leftover pancake, some salad and a couple of boiled eggs.

 A dark chocolate covered sea salt caramel marshmallow. This was super yummy.

 Snacks at Josie’s place: carrots, celery, potato chips, cheese, caramel popcorn, beetroot hummus, non-alcoholic white wine.

 More snacks: apples, more potato chips, popcorn, peanuts, wild garlic hummus, salt sticks, grapes.

 Coffee, instant noodles.

Josie was hosting a party for Walpurgis Night with costumes, snacks and board games. I dressed up as a fandom unicorn. Not sure what it is, but it’s what I was xD Here are some pictures of me in costume, because I thought I looked pretty and that is rare recently with all my health problems.

I hope my health will go back to normal soon. I am tired of hurting and feeling weak.

Crappy ice cream… 23. October 2017

I decided to treat myself to some ice cream after my doctor’s appointment. I grabbed a couple of scoops from Ice Café  and oh my gosh, was this ice cream disgusting. Both scoops – caramel-popcorn and chocolate – tasted really off and unpleasant 😦 It felt such a waste, especially since one scoop cost 2 euros, but I had to throw the ice cream away, because it was inedible. BOO! 😦

 Buckwheat and cabbage stew with sour cream.

 Homemade rye bread with cheese.

I took Kohuke to the vet for a check-up. She was mostly fine, they couldn’t do anything about the wounds on her leg anymore, as they were too old and almost done healing already. She did have ear mites, so she got her ears cleaned and medication against the parasites. Mostly a healthy kitten, just malnourished and tiny for her age.

Rock bottom and starting to climb up again… 9-10. November 2016

Photobucket still doesn’t work for me, so I am trying out flickr for now. Flickr is a bigger hassle when it comes to linking photos to my blog, but at least it’ll hopefully work. Eghhh… so annoyed how many services are not functioning properly for me these days (that includes: Viber, Skype, tumblr among others)  😦 Please let me know if you are having any issues seeing my photos, I don’t quite trust flickr yet.

9. November

 Sausage sandwich.

 Beef chili over rice.

 Wakame miso soup over rice.

 Baked apple with sugar and cinnamon.

I had a panic attack the night before and the bad feeling from it never really went away. I woke up feeling anxious and since I didn’t manage to anything productive for the first half of the day, I ended up crying most of the rest of the day. I think this was one of the worst days I’ve had this year. By the very late evening I finally managed to drag myself out of bed again to make us some dinner. I also wrote to school asking what would be the ramifications if I postponed my graduation to the spring semester. I need more time to sort myself out.

10. November

 A baked apple with cinnamon and sugar; also, some spoonfuls of yoghurt with hemp seeds. I didn’t enjoy that yoghurt much.

 Cocoa puffs with milk.

 Coffee and Milka Waffelini wafer.

 Popcorn and Fanta we shared at the movies with my  boyfriend.

 Fried potatoes, blood sausages, some salad and sauerkraut.

It was a better day for sure. I had coffee in the morning with my mom and then spent most of the day cleaning our apartment. In the evening boyfriend took me to the movies to see “Doctor Strange,” which I enjoyed a lot. I am usually not very fond of 3D movies, but with this one I feel that it’s essential to watch it in 3D. It was visually an extraordinary experience. Also, Benedict Cumberbatch, hot damn!

I did have a couple of anxiety attacks during the day where I was either shivering uncontrollably or couldn’t breathe, but they passed quite quickly and didn’t develop into anything worse.

I also got a letter back from school, saying that I could graduate in spring with the same terms as now, so I guess I will aim to do that. It will give me more time to attempt to get my anxiety and other issues under control and finish my thesis. I hope I can do this.

No mushrooms, no blueberries… 23. July 2016

 Carrot-celery risotto and a glass of kefir.

 Soft serve chocolate ice cream.

 Shared this roasted corn Tupla chocolate with my boyfriend. It was good, but nothing special.

 Shared a bag of baby carrots with the boyfriend as well.

 Tortilla pizza with tomato, champignons, pickled garlic, smoked chicken and mozzarella cheese.

 Laima Tagad chocolate with popcorn bits and a cup of coffee. Shared the chocolate with my boyfriend like usual. Now this chocolate was super delicious! I bought this one from my short trip to Latvia, haven’t seen it on sale around here yet.

*

Boyfriend and his brother went to some open-pit mining place to ride their enduro bikes and I tagged along in the hopes of maybe finding some blueberries or mushrooms in the nearby woods. Sadly, there were no mushrooms and the few blueberry bushes I found were already picked clean. Well I managed to find a handful of blueberries, but not as much as I would have liked. Oh well, at least I had a nice long walk in the woods.
