You better work… 17-18. April 2017

17. April

 Kiwifruit-gooseberry quark and a cup of coffee

 Some ham and cheese omelette

 A pancake with a banana and honey

 Spaghetti with vegan sausage-tomato sauce

The vegan sausage was weird xD But it was half off in the store, so I gave it a try. The spaghetti dinner was altogether delicious though. Does vegan sausage count as vegetables?

18. April

 Some fruit bread and coffee

 A piece of omelette with sweet potato in it

 My angry lunch. I had sweet potato fries, a schnitzel and a fried egg, because the chef refused to give me any soup D:

 Soothing my upset of not getting any soup with a Realist ginger-peppermint lemonade. I’m in love, this lemonade was so delicious!

 Spicy eggplant chili with rice and tortilla chips @ Koloniaal. This was so so so so good.

 PAI raspberry-beetroot-black currant smoothie

I worked from open until close in the café, because a co-worker fell ill, so I covered his shift, and boy was I tried when I got home. On one hand, I am thankful that there weren’t many customers, because otherwise I would have been dead, but on the other hand, it’s not good for business when there aren’t many customers. :s

Anyhow, here is a relevant blast from the past:

Great day… 16. April 2017

 A Karelian pastry, omelette with sausage, and a cup of coffee

 Burnt tasting coffee @ PEPS

 Their pancakes with mushroom sauce were delicious however

 Had several slices of this lemon cake at my mom’s place with some tea

 Scrambled eggs with some tomatoes, cucumber and marinated cucumber

It was an eventful day. In the morning I went to Snikt with Miss K and bought myself a Spider-Man comic. Then we had our second breakfast of pancakes and then I met up with Janice and her friend. I met Janice online in a dolling community maybe 15 years ago or so and we have been on and off penfriends over the years. It was fantastic to finally meet her in person.

We had some coffees here and there and I showed them around the town for a few hours too. It was so much fun. Later I walked them to the harbour and headed home to make dinner. Dinner got a bit postponed, because my boyfriend went to help my mom with some computer stuff and I tagged along. Good thing I did, because there was lemon cake xD

A work day and a birthday party… 14-15. April 2017

14. April

 Coffee and kinako flavoured Black Thunder chocolate

 A couple of biter of four grain porridge

 Sweet potato fries, fried eggs, bacon and salad @ Koloniaal

 Buckwheat-cabbage stew with a fried egg and sour cream

15. April

 Coffee, sandwiches with sausage

 I had friends over for a belated birthday party. On the table was: haggis flavoured potato chips, sour cream and onion potato chips, cheese, chocolate, different pastries, tuna onigiri, carrots, cucumber and marinated cucumber, bread crisps, grapes 😀

 Saku Antwärk cloudberry and lime cider that was super delicious, Saku Manchester beer

 Birthday candles 😀

It was great seeing all my friends ♥

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 🙂

Café life… 23. March 2017

 Coffee and Take a Bite Love snack bar (dates, cashew, cherry, cranberry, almond, sea salt, clove, cinnamon)

 A pancake with mushrooms @ Koloniaal

 Chickpea soup with feta cheese, cashews and seeds

 Had two sausage sandwiches with the soup too

It sucks to wake up so early for work ( 6:30 D: ), but at the same time I quite enjoy the quiet mornings in the café: listening to music, sweeping the floors, lighting candles and making coffee for the trickle of sleepy people craving for their first dose of caffeine.

We also had some sourdough starter on sale in the shop, so I got a pack for myself too and made the dough in the evening. It needs to sit now for about 24 hours. We’ll see what comes out of this if anything :p
