I am going to change the format of my food project a bit… 9-10. June 2018

I have had a bit of a blogging crisis AGAIN lately as you have perhaps noticed. I like my food photo project, but it annoys me that I can’t seem to keep up the daily posting. For a while I considered just abandoning the project altogether, but then decided against it. Instead I will try to make weekly posts and see how that will work. Then perhaps I will find motivation to blog about other things as well, because right now I have always lost interest in doing anything else after I have managed to complete my daily food post.

So, I will catch up with my posts and from then on, I will do my food posts on Mondays.

9. June – Sweeney Todd

We drove to Southern Estonia for the weekend. First, we stopped by at Ly and Raul’s place to celebrate Raul’s birthday. There was loads of food xD In the evening we went to Tartu and saw “Sweeney Todd- Fleet Streeti Põrgulik Pardur” at Vanemuise Teater which was fantastic! The lighting and costumes were fabulous and I wholeheartedly enjoyed every minute of the performance.

There was coffee, a cheese pastry and an almond pastry.

One of these strawberry pastries.

Grilled pork and some salad.

Sweet cherries and strawberries.

Salmon pizza.

Black currant cake.

Coffee and Mrs. Lovette’s meat pie XD

10. June

We hung out in Karula for most of the day where Indrek helped Loviise build some horse jumping obstacles and I helped her to film one of her horses. In the evening we drove back to Tallinn.

Coffee, fried eggs and some tomatoes.

Super delicious homemade beef burger that Agu served us. So yum!

Some vanilla ice cream.

Estonian Food Fair… 5. May 2018

 Grilled sandwiches with ham and cheese.

 A couple of these sausages.

 A sandwich with mozzarella and tomato.

 Grilled beef with radish salad. This was yummy.

 Coffee, chocolate kohuke and a hazelnut kohuke. I didn’t like the hazelnut one at all 😦 The chocolate one was delicious.

I was working at the Estonian Food Fair this Saturday, representing our bakery. It was a busy day and sadly I didn’t have any time to go walk around the fair. I was making signs for our booth, cutting numerous loaves of bread into pieces for people to taste, selling things of course and then I was also in charge of making burgers and sandwiches. I was so tired in the evening and my feet hurt quite a bit xD

Making signs.

Cutting bread.

Muhu Pagarid

… 24. April 2018

 Porridge with pumpkin seeds and bits of beef jerky.

 Sakura-shrimp kakimochi. This puffed crispy snack was so yummy.

 Since I was feeling so down, I asked if we could go to Gotsu for dinner. Hubby said yes. We shared some spicy minced meat rice rolls and a wakame salad.

 My favourite thing in the entire world, especially when I am feeling cold or sad: super spicy kimchi stew with pork and some rice to go with it.

 A grilled ham and cheese sandwich.

In the morning I went to see a specialist about the thrombosis. She was a lovely and helpful lady who explained the illness from the very beginning to me and set the course of treatment. Sadly, there are still many “we don’t really know’s” with things like this, so I don’t even have an estimate when my hand will stop hurting and when the thrombosis will be gone. Could be a week for the former, could be a month. It all depends on my body they said.

I was taken off birth control and told not to lift heavy things or to exercise. Not sure yet how it will affect my job, but we’ll see. Right now, I am taking a couple of days off to see if the pain lessens. It’s not that bad, the swelling has gone down and my hand is mostly functional, but weak and I can’t make certain movements with it yet.

And I fell ill… 20. March 2018

I had a mild headache in the morning but didn’t think much of it and went to work. However, I started feeling gradually worse during my commute to work, so I had a terrible headache, dizziness and cold shivers when I got to work. Such a bummer. This is the worst timing ever, right before my vacation next week. Ugh.

I took a taxi home and spent most of the day sleeping.

 Very late breakfast around 4pm: nettle rye bread with butter and ham and lukewarm coffee that was left over from morning. Since I felt so sick in the morning I didn’t manage to drink my coffee then and I really didn’t have the energy to make a new pot.

 We ordered in dinner, because in no way was I going to manage to cook. I had some rice and super spicy kimchi stew from Gotsu, Kyuho’s Kitchen. The spices warmed me up nicely.

 A few pieces of this peanut butter oreo chocolate. I didn’t like this very much, which is weird, because how can you go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter?
