Ghost in the Shell… 10-11. April 2017

10. April

 Some cereal with milk

 A slice of rhubarb cake

 Mushroom soup with bits of bacon @ Koloniaal

 Rice noodles with veggie-smoked tofu sauce. There were only tiny bits of bell pepper in the veggie mix, so I thought it would be okay, but boy was I wrong 😦

 Rye bread with sausage

My second attempt of baking sourdough bread didn’t go too well either. The bread didn’t rise and was too mushy inside again, but this time it had formed some fermentation bubble-holes in it, so I guess it’s some progress at least 🙂 I got some tips from expert bread bakers in the family that I am going to try out next time.

11. April

 Coffee and a cranberry kohuke

 Four grain porridge with jam @ Koloniaal

 A giant chicken Kiev with some salad @ Koloniaal

 Apple juice, a pancake with ham and cheese + sour cream and salad @ Pannkoogimaja. Boyfriend gladly ate all the bellpeper in my salad.

We went to see the “Ghost in the Shell” movie in the evening. I absolutely enjoyed it. It was visually stunning and made me nostalgic for the anime. I am so glad that I saw in on the big screen, because of all the beauty and spectacle in it. Good times 🙂

Catan… 20. March 2017

 A fried egg, some salad with pumpkin seeds and garlic sprouts, sandwiches with smoked salmon

 Apple-pear pie with halva

 Some veggies with hummus

 Fruits

 Delicious quiche that Josie made

 Spicy and sour mushroom and chicken soup made with tom yum paste with rice noodles and sour cream

Went to visit Josie for a few hours during the day and watched her play Catan with another friend xD Sadly, when they finally persuaded me to play with them, I had to get going, so I left in the middle of the game. Well, it was fun while it lasted at least :p However, I still like watching people play board games more than actually playing them xD

It’s official now… 16. March 2017

 Cocoa pudding

 A cheese roll and some coffee

 Spicy pork sauce with rice noodles, some salad and hemp seed bread @ Koloniaal

 Japanese style tofu curry with rice

It’s official now, I have a job at a small café/grocery store/bakery Koloniaal 😀 It’s going to be an adventure! I need to touch up my coffee making skills. I used to be able to do simpler latte art, but now the milk just doesn’t come out quite right… or maybe I don’t pour it the right way. It is frustrating me  alot right now. However, nothing a little practice won’t fix I think :p

I sent a notification about my job to the unemployment agency as well, so that should be done with. I’m so glad I don’t have to endure another session over there even though my new agent seemed a lot more pleasant.

Clean… 11. Dec 2016

 Coffee and a banana

 Spicy coconut milk soup with shrimp, tofu, rice noodles and rice

 Coffee and some orange flavoured Daim candies

 Ham and cheese sandwich

 More of the spicy coconut milk soup with shrimp, tofu, rice noodles and rice

We spent most of the day cleaning our apartment. Having clean surroundings feels so good… but it always lasts only for a hot minute. Just long enough for you to finally sit down to relax with a cup of coffee and spill it all over the clean table cloth… and so the mess begins anew xD

Walking and baking and partying… 9-10. Dec 2016

9. December

 A persimmon for breakfast

 I baked a peanut butter brownie (after this recipe) and had a few slices for lunch

 Spicy coconut milk soup with shrimp, tofu and rice noodles

We went to our local television studio with the boyfriend to rent some costumes for the upcoming Christmas party at his work. The theme of the party is 20’s fashion and the lady working at the costume department found us costumes in a snap. It was amazing how she just looked us up and down and then picked out the clothes from the long lines of costumes and they fit just right. We didn’t even consider trying on anything other than she picked out for us. Must be years of experience dressing people 😀

10. December

 Omelette and salted cucumber

Party foods:

 Crab rolls, deviled eggs, sült (head cheese)

 Veggies and dip

 Meats and sausages

 Sandwich cake

 Meatballs and chicken wings

 Paté stuffed buns

I ate a bit of everything 😛

 Quark stuffed pastry (had 2 of these), a slice of peanut butter brownie and coffee. I ended up drinking about 3 cups of coffee near midnight xD

I slept in in the morning, so I didn’t get much done that I wanted. I had planned to do the dishes and clean a bit, but instead I decided to laze in bed with a headache. Eh. Eventually I got up. Then we went to the store to get some groceries and also bought stuff to donate to the food bank. Back at home, I baked another one of these peanut butter brownies and then my boyfriend’s brother came and picked us up to go shopping for presents for our friends. Going to shopping centres is crazy right now; so many people 😦

It took us a couple of hours to find what we needed (+ I scored a cute candle holder, a new kettle and a hexbug cat toy) and then we headed to the birthday party we had been invited to. The party was pretty fun and we got back home around 3am in the morning.
