[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

1. September

In the morning I went to the Uue-Maailma street festival with Kerttu and Kadi. It was super fun and I spent so much money on food and awesome goodies 😀

Vegan doughnuts with chocolate-caramel sauce and cookie bits. The doughnuts were tiny and crunchy. Not bad at all, but I have had better.

Churros!

Roasted coconut ice cream.

A potato spiral 😀 It was Kadi’s, but I got a taste.

A doughnut with chocolate and nuts. Nom.

Finger food at Josie’s birthday party. To be fair, I have no idea what most of this was 😀 Um, a chocolate cookie, potato chips, salad on a lettuce, erm cheese? rye bread with hummus, something with shrimp. I give up xD It was all delicious though. And no, the blue dude was not edible.

Pizza!

And more pizza and finger food :p

A vegan peanut butter-raspberry cake that was yummy.

Macaroni with minced meat.

2. September

Macaroni with minced meat. Also, a cup of coffee.

A smoked chicken leg.

Banana-kiwifruit ice cream and an ice cream coffee @ Gelato Ladies. My sis works there now, so I have more excuses to visit :p

Sakeru Gumi apple flavour. Terrible tasting. Am not a fan.

[what I ate.] 20-26. August 2018

20. August

Rice Krispies cereal with milk.


Coffee and apple yōkan in the cutest package I have ever seen.

The inner condom-like packaging didn’t look very appetizing however xD Thankfully the sweet treat was still yummy, despite the wtf moment I experienced with the rubber casing.

Couscous salad with avocado and garlic sprouts.

Jeriska’s Chips, jellied beef and horseradish flavour. These were really good actually!

Creamy pasta with wild garlic and rye bread with butter.

25. August

Puffed rice and sushi-burritos from Yui.

At La Muu: I had a scoop of charcoal white chocolate ice cream and a scoop of bacon-maple syrup ice cream. Both were delicious. I especially enjoyed the crunchy caramelised bacon bits in the ice cream. The other ice cream was my boyfriends, don’t remember what he had.

Rice with tuna, veggies, sour cream and soy sauce.

Skull bowl… 20. May 2018

In the morning I went to the Kalamaja Festival with hubby and Kadi. We got loads of delicious food:

Handmade pelmeni and a turnip pastry from a Finno-Ugric grandmother 😀 Shared these with hubby, he ate most of the pastry, because I am not a big fan of turnip.

A green smoothie with spinach from Ökut. So yummy!

Blueberry bagel with cream cheese. This was so delicious!

Churros! We ate most of them, before I remember to take a photo xD

Chicken paella. It was a bit cold and dry but tasted good.

Ice cream from Surf Café.

Later in the evening e went to play with clay again with Kadi and Kerttu. I wanted to make a mug but ended up making a bowl again as the sides turned out too thick for a mug. I will attempt a mug again next time xD

Boo!

Baked fish with garlic cream cheese and some salad with puffed millet and mushrooms. The puffed millet was kind of lame in the salad, but it was worth a shot I guess.

I have to taste everything I sell… 9. May 2018

As the caption on the ice cream photo, I think I hurt myself with work at the food fair. My shoulder started hurting again 😦 I spent most of the day lounging on the couch and napping. I still felt too bad to cook in the evening, so we ordered in some salad and soup.
