To the wilderness… 23. April 2017

 Coffee and banana muffins

 Red currant juice, boiled potatoes, roast pork and some marinated cucumber

 Shared this whole hazelnuts Ritter Sport with my boyfriend

We drove to Uulu, because firewood needed to be made for the winter. I mostly tagged along so I could get out of the city for a change. I left my family to do the firewood thing and took a long long walk in the nearby woods and the sea-side. In my defence, I really really really don’t like being near chainsaws, so I wouldn’t have been much help with the work anyway. I helped to make the food for the working folk later, so I guess I wasn’t completely useless.

Needles and x-rays… 30. March 2017

 French fries from McDonalds

 Buckwheat flake porridge with ham and butter

 Japanese style minced meat and tomato curry with rice

I had a couple of doctor’s appointments in the morning where I got poked and x-rayed. It’s something you must get done when you get a job that involves food and dealing with people. Since I went out without breakfast, I started feeling quite queasy on my way to get my chest x-rayed, so that explains the fries I got from McDo. I’m sure I could have found a healthier option from the nearby gas station, but half of my brain usually shuts down when I am feeling hungry and/or sick, so the cravings usually win in these scenarios xD

Junkfood kind of day… 22. March 2017

 Fried potatoes, sausage sandwiches and marinated cucumber.

 Kadi came to visit and she brought green tea cake and cookies from Killuke Kooki 😀 We had them with some peppermint tea. That cake was so so so good!

 Had about 1,5 bottles of beer… maybe a bit more.

 We had fun assembling some Japanese DIY candy kits. This one was called “Nyokonyoko Kororon” or as we called it “creepy candy wormies” xD The candy tasted weird and I didn’t like it much. It was fun to make though :p

This is a short vid of how the wormies were made:

 Sour cream and onion senbei that was spot on with the beer

 This candy kit was “Kurabete Neruneru”. The green goo was melon flavoured and the yellow one was pineapple flavoured. We both really liked the pineapple taste.

 Poppin’Cookin’ “Tanoshii Raamenya-san” aka “Fun Ramen Restaurant” ;D This was epic fun to make. It actually looked like real ramen and gyoza xD The gyoza tasted really nice too, the ramen had a weird texture, but didn’t taste bad.

 Chocolate ice cream break

 Soy flavoured senbei that also went great with the beer

 Tasty chickpea soup with feta cheese and assorted nuts and seeds. I followed this recipe to make the soup.

I had a really lovely and fun day with Kadi. The DIY candy kits were hilarious to assemble and after we were done with these, we just chilled with some beer and chattered away about all sorts of nonsense ♥

Most of the DIY candy was left for my boyfriend xD He appreciated it and ate them all without complaint when he got off work xD

Nanana… 19. March 2017

 Oatmeal porridge with pumpkin seeds, some butter, honey and a banana

 A slice of apple-pear cake with halva

 Fried potatoes with horseradish-cream cheese sauce, baked breaded fish and some salad with garlic sprouts
