Cake and clay and grill… 13. May 2018

 Some quark pancakes.

 Coffee and Pavlova cake. I bought my mom a Pavlova cake for Mother’s Day and of course helped her to eat it :p and always like a good daughter, spilled coffee on the clean blanket we sat on xD

 ÖselBirch birch water with aronia juice. This was a nice and refreshing drink.

 Opened this pack of pineapple candy to share. It was good!

 Salad with sprouts, grilled couscous-chia seed sausages and grilled corn.

 More salad and grilled smoked wieners.

In the afternoon I went to a clay studio with Kadi and Miss K to try and make some stuff out of clay 😀 That was super fun! I accomplished a wonky bowl 😀

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

 Cornflakes and puffed wheat with milk.

 Some hazelnut milk and a bite of vegan pizza. Both were yummy.

 Coconut-banana pastry with dark chocolate. Very tasty.

 Asparagus-carrot risotto with some salad.

 Apple-orange-strawberry juice.

 Cranberry-nut bread.

 Cabbage borscht with meatballs and some grilled cranberry-nut bread.

Tasting new things… 27. April 2018

 Couscous salad with smoked chicken.

 Coffee and Ruby Cocoa Kit-Kat. I liked this a lot. The slightly sour berry aftertaste was really nice.

 A cheese roll.

 Coffee, cauliflower-green pea soup with sour cream.

 Tasted some snacks with hubby: artisan butter senbei, ume cookie (with chopped plum and shiso), white chocolate strawberry. The cookie was okay, the senbei was super delicious and the white chocolate strawberry was quite yuck, because it tasted like strawberry butter.

Fall damage… 1. April 2018

 Coffee and some meat pastries from my grandmother. I have somehow managed to chip my cauldron mug 😦 So sad.

 Leftovers from the buffet: potato gratin, slow cooked beef in wine sauce and some salad.

 Leftover chocolate mousse. Doesn’t look so good anymore, but it was still delicious xD

 Kaki no tane in milk chocolate. These were so yummy!

I didn’t see many interesting jokes or pranks around the interwebs other than an ice cream company announcing their brand new healthy cauliflower-broccoli ice cream XD Another one was my mmorpg enabling fall damage, that has been gone from the game for years now, for a day. I was beyond giddy about it and had a fun time jumping off several cliffs xD It also presented several funny occasions while playing, because people kept forgetting that they could die by jumping off higher places xD Good fun was had.

A family lunch… 31. March 2018

 Coffee and some apple.

We had lunch with my closest relatives, because they wanted to congratulate us on our marriage. Since I didn’t feel like cooking, I ordered a buffet from Tervise Catering and it was lovely:

 Potato gratin, vegetable wok, slow cooked beef in red wine sauce, salmon in creamy lime sauce. The beef was super tender and delicious and I was really fond of the gratin too.

 Duck sandwich bites, potato salad, fresh salad with strawberries and seeds, chocolate mousse with berries. Everything was so good!

It was the first time I used a catering service myself and I must admit it is very convenient. I didn’t have to worry about anything else other than settling the menu. A very lovely young man delivered the food, set it up and after we were done, he returned to clean it all up. No stressing in the kitchen, no washing up! I’m a fan.

 Hot and sour soup with Chinese cabbage, minced meat, quinoa and sour cream. Also had some meat pastries my grandmother brought us.

We got married!… 28. March 2018

Sorry for being absent for a while, but life got busy and then I wasn’t at home for a long period of time. My boyfriend of 8 years and I got married on our anniversary 😀

 Quick morning breakfast was rice and miso soup.

After I picked up our wedding cake and boyfriend went and got me a bouquet of flowers, we headed to the cornily nicknamed Happiness Palace to get married. It was just the two of us as it’s how we wanted to do it. It was our anniversary which has always been a private event for us.

Before the ceremony we had a photographer take some photos for us at the waiting room:

 Me and my love.

 ♥

 I loved the colour of the roses so much.

 😀

After the photography session, we had a short meeting with our wedding officiator about the proceedings. Apparently a simple ceremony is customary for everyone even if you just are there to sign the papers :p We agreed on a few sweet words and then for the marriage contract to be read to us as the ceremony proceedings.

A sweet touch that we added was that we brought our own music for the ceremony (because apparently if you didn’t you would get Beatles on a pan flute xD). We picked this song – Dir en grey “Ain’t afraid to die” – and it gave us many a giggle when it started playing in the ceremony room:

 Feeling giddy.

 I was so nervous I hardly remember what was said to us during the ceremony xD

 Mrs. and Mr. Paas 😀

 ♥

After the ceremony we went to a restaurant called Mimosa to have lunch.

 Kali and a mimosa.

 Snack selection – hummus, smoked fish mousse, two-fish cheviche, beef tartar, cheese. All of this was super delicious.

 Hubby ate their daily special (cutlets and vegetable gratin) and I had a green salad with fried mushrooms, crispy carrot and an oven-baked tomato sauce which was also very tasty.

After lunch we drove to Laulasmaa Spa for a day of bathing and relaxation. First we started by eating some of our wedding cake at our hotel room:

 Raspberry-cream cheese brownie cake from Killuke Kooki.

 There was also a fruit and chocolate platter waiting for us in our room 😀

Anyhow, then I got a foot procedure and afterwards there was a massage session for the both of us. All super relaxing. Later we enjoyed the rest of the spa- bubble baths, an onsen, salt sauna and steam sauna etc.

 Our day ended with a three-course meal in their local restaurant called Wicca. Hubby’s mocktail and my cocktail.

 This was a greeting appetizer Baltic herring. Sadly, it wasn’t very good, but mostly because I don’t enjoy this type of fish very much.

 Main appetizer- slow-cooked beef liver, spicy plum jam, pickled red onion, sea-buckthorn meringue and rhubarb meringue. The liver was oh so tender and lovely.

 Main course- potato and leek croquettes, mushroom cream and wild mushrooms. This was delicious, albeit the croquettes being a bit too oily for my liking.

 Dessert was coffee and an ice-cold cream cheesecake on raspberry cookie with raspberry sauce. Super yummy. Indrek had a crumbly pastry basket with vanilla cream and currant compote.

It was a lovely and a memorable day 😀
