Bread progress… 9. October 2017

 Quark with raspberries and a cup of coffee.

 Pelmeni with sour cream.

 Vegetable and mushroom soup with sour cream.

 I made another attempt at baking rye bread. The last time the bread didn’t rise at all and I basically burnt it xD This time it rose nicely and I managed to not burn it. However, it was a bit too moist inside still. I need to buy myself an oven thermometer, because I can’t be sure how hot my oven gets and I think that is a part of the problem why my baking tends to go wrong. Anyway, this is the best rye bread I have managed so far- it actually looks like bread and it tasted good 🙂

Blade Runner… 8. October 2017

 Leftover Indian style curry with beef and cashews + rice and a couple of fried eggs. Looks horrid, was delicious.

 Shared these two pastries with my boyfriend: a giant quark pastry and a cardamom pastry. They looked might fine, but I didn’t enjoy their flavour very much.

 Rice cake with ice cream and pineapple-apple jam + a cup of coffee.

 Vegetable and mushroom soup with sour cream.

 Homemade white bread with butter. So good! We devoured almost half of the big loaf, I made, in one go XD

We watched the 1982 “Blade Runner” movie in the evening. I had never seen it, despite having read about the movie and its significance in so many research papers and pop culture analysis. I had read Philip K. Dick’s “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” and it was thrilling to me to spot all the familiar things from the book. I really enjoyed the entire aesthetic of the movie and the story too. I was, however, amused at the OH SO awkward acting, but eh xD Good movie, am excited to see the sequel to it now on big screen soon.

Have you seen the old and/or new “Blade Runner” movie(s)? Did you enjoy them? 😀

Don’t insult your friend before they have paid for your food… 5. September 2017

 Carrots and coffee for breakfast

 Cookie balls

Kadi bought me the carrots and cookie balls in the morning. I have awesome friends who know that the way into my heart is through food! xD I may or may not have sleepily insulted her when she was paying for the items. It was hilarious. I should not be allowed to talk before I am fully awake.

Sun stroke… 19. May 2017

 A persimmon and rhubarb-oats-spinach yoghurt. The persimmon was surprising, because it had seeds in it. Usually the ones we get in Estonia, never have any seeds. The yoghurt was a good rhubarb yoghurt, but it was disappointing as well, because again, I didn’t find any spinach in it.

 A very gooey cherry pastry

 Wild garlic pesto pasta @ Koloniaal

 Limoncello ice cream

 Vegetable soup with garlic and mushrooms

 Milk chocolate with honey roasted almonds and some coffee

Well, it was the first truly warm, even hot, day. I am not fond of weather too warm, because as usual, my hands and feet swelled up. I felt awful going home from work, feeling too hot, my head started to ache, hands and feet swollen, I was sweaty all over and it was annoying to walk, because my sweaty thighs were rubbing together and hurt. I think it took me around 30 minutes to get home with a stop to the grocery store. I was feeling so sick, head hurt like crazy, so I decided to pop some painkillers and to take a nap… I did so only to wake up an hour later all covered in cold sweat and shivering. I’m sure it was a sun stroke and that it happened because I didn’t wear a hat. The only hat I had with me was a very thick winter hat and I really didn’t want to wear that in the scorching heat. Anyway, I think I’ve had enough of summer for this year, thanks.
