Paperwork… 19. February 2018

 Breakfast at Pannkoogimaja: scrambled eggs, bacon, salad, toast and coffee.

 Syrniki with fresh strawberry jam which were delicious. Boyfriend had a pancake with halva and caramel syrup.

 Roasted seaweed. I have been craving this a lot lately.

 Sauerkraut soup with pork.

 Meiji Apollo strawberry chocolates.

In life news: in the morning we went and handed in the paperwork to get married. So I guess this is happening soon :p

A new place… 6. February 2018

 A banana and a banana muffin.

 Vegetable soup with walnuts and balsamico.

 Sauerkraut soup with pork and barley with a ham sandwich.

 A black currant jam semla from Killuke Kooki. So supernova delicious!

 Blueberry cake also from Killuke Kooki. Was yummy as well.

I had my first day at my new job… uh, have I even mentioned that I am changing jobs? I don’t remember xD Anyway, I am between changing jobs right now. I was so nervous and stressed out, so I didn’t sleep well for the past few nights and had many horrible dreams (mostly how I messed up at the new place and they fired me on the spot). In my worried and tired state, I forgot my work clothes at home… neatly packed and ready to go by the door. How lame is that??? Thankfully boyfriend was sweet enough to bring them to me.

Anyway, my first day went well. The place wasn’t open to public yet, so I just helped with organising things and washing new equipment. Easy-peasy.

I am going to eat all the semla for the next week… 5. February 2018

 Mixed cocoa-white chocolate and quinoa cereal with milk.

Sichuan pepper soup with noodles and dumplings and some keema naan @ Little India.

 Sauerkraut soup with pork, barley and sour cream.

 Coffee and a raspberry semla from Maiasmokk. I had another of their semla a bit later.

I love semla. I always anticipate Shrove Tuesday approaching, so I could eat some semla 😀 There just isn’t anything better than a delicious fluffy white bread bun, stuffed with jam and topped with fresh whipped cream. However, I wasn’t always this hyped about the semla pastry. When I was a child, I absolutely hated them xD To me there wasn’t anything more disgusting than white bread with whipped cream xD So, my love for this pastry has been an acquired taste.

First, I started enjoying semla with quark-whip instead of whipped cream, because I was still iffy about the cream version. Then, maybe 7 or 8 years ago I finally came around to whipped cream too and so now I am really looking forward to semla time every year.

Where do you eat your meals?… 4. February 2018

 Five grain porridge with lingonberry-apple jam, some chia seeds and butter.

 Moomin shaped marshmallow candies! These were so cute, look at the little Snufkin shaped green candy! Sadly their cute shape was the only good part about these, several of the flavours tasted kind of soapy. Meh.

 Sauerkraut soup with barley and pork. I also added some sour cream to this later. So delicious! I don’t know why I don’t make this soup more often.

 A couple of banana muffins.

It kind of bothers me that I almost always eat behind my computer. We do have a dining table, but it’s usually piled full of crap that honestly should not be there and is in general quite hard to access. For instance right now, I would have to climb over a small fold-table and a giant bag full of motorcycle gear to even get to it…

Changes… 19. January 2018

 Greek yoghurt with lingonberry-apple jam, puffed millet and some chocolate cookies. Also, had a cup of coffee.

 König Ludwig Weissbier. It was alright.

 Tonkotsu soy ramen @ Washoku Story.

 Pelmeni with sour cream.

This day was harsh. I went in for a job interview/to check out a soon to be opening café… and decided to accept their job offer. This also meant I had to hand in my 30-day notice at my current place of work. There was lots of crying and uhh… but I think I made the right decision.
