[what I ate.] 22-28. October 2018

22. October – Venom

A banana.

Some vitamin water and a doughnut after working out. I took the second doughnut to Kerttu at her work place.

Coffee with my love in my favourite café The Living Room Café.

Popcorn. We went to see “Venom.” While not a perfect movie, it was still really fun and enjoyable. Not sure why most of the internet seems to be complaining over it. I had a blast and wouldn’t mind watching it again.

Salmon soup at my parent’s house.

Some cookies and tea.

23. October – from Tallinn to Girona

An almond pastry.

Quite crappy pelmeni with sour cream. The pelmeni were flavourless. I hadn’t bought this brand before, so it was a disappointment.

A grilled sandwich with cheese and sausage.

A latte and a chocolate croissant at KOHVer Café. Both were mediocre. I was disappointed, because I had over the top good memories of this place from the last time I was at the airport. No exquisite latte this time 😦 I mean it wasn’t bad, it was alright as far most coffee drinks go in Estonia, just I was hoping for a repeat wonderful experience.

Coffee on the plane. This was something new for me. They prepared this coffee by pouring hot water over fresh grounds in the cup. I mean I have made coffee like that at home many a time, but never have I seen such coffee being served in an establishment and with specialized disposable cups like these. Interesting and the coffee was good.

Some bread and ham late at night.

24. October

Fried eggs and bacon, some tomato, toast with cream cheese and ham. Coffee, a walnut-cereal yoghurt.

Coffee and a banana with a magnificent view. The kind of bananas I ate in Catalonia tasted different from the ones we usually can buy at home. I loved the flavour a lot and I hope I can find similar ones in Estonia too. Perhaps I should try to look in some organic food stores.

Pasta carbonara for dinner. There was also salad and baked chicken-vegetable skewers. I only remembered to take a photo midway dinner xD

Beer and ice cream.

25. October

An omelette and pa amb tomata which is a traditional Catalan breakfast staple. Basically it’s “bread with tomato” xD First you rub the toast with garlic, then with tomato and then pour some olive oil on top. Quite a tasty breakfast 😀

Some yoghurt, orange juice, coffee and cake.

Some orange and tomatoes, toast with hazelnut-milk spread and a cup of coffee.

Some cookies, brioche and a lemon muffin.

Beer.


Roast chicken with onions, plums, garlic and cinnamon, with a side of some salad and garlicy potatoes. Apparently, this type of meat dish is a typical Catalan Christmas food, but it was made for us as a special occasion 🙂 It was extremely delicious!

Yumyum!

A French style apple pie for dessert.

26. October

Orange juice, yoghurt, coffee, pa amb tomata, fried eggs, bacon.

A cappuccino and some complimentary olives. I almost never eat olives in Estonia, because most of the ones sold here taste gross. These were quite lovely tasting!

Bread and anchovies. I am not too sure about the anchovies, they weren’t bad, but I can’t say that I particularly liked them either.

Snails in spicy sauce. These were yummy!

Beer and a banana.

Vegetable puree soup with croutons and some funky French bread other guests from France shared with us.

Salad, some fried sausages (a bit too salty for my likes) and a macaroni dish with pork ribs that was oh so delicious.

Nice chocolate cake with crappy canned whipped cream.

27. October – going back to Estonia

Coconut yoghurt, coffee, omelette, bacon, pa amb tomata.

Some orange juice and chocolate chip cake.

A sugar doughnut and some coffee.

Roasted giant corn. So yummy!

Some potato chips and a cappuccino on the plane. I like the text on the cup: “Please attend to your own cappuccino before attempting to steal your neighbour’s” xD A funny twist on the airplane safety tips xD

Chicken tikka masala. It looked and smelled awful but tasted alright.

28. October

Coffee, chocolate chip bread.

Buckwheat with beef liver, sour cream and some salad.

Pocari Sweat. Good hydrating drink :p

Fries and baked wieners with ketchup.

Work and fun… 12. May 2018

 Coffee, puffed wheat with milk.

 Chili sin carne with some salad and a boiled egg. Also had some water and cherry kombucha.

 Coconut-banana pastry.

 Some after work work while I waited for Marit @ Gelato Ladies. They make a very delicious ice cream coffee.

 I had a scoop of avocado ice cream and a scoop of kiwifruit-banana ice cream.

 Cranberry juice with lime and mint @ Popular

 Potato bites with sour cream. These were supposed to be potato croquettes, and I expected something handmade, not prefabricates :/ Marit wasn’t happy with her jalapeno poppers either, because they were cream cheese nuggets instead that were mildly jalapeno flavoured.

 Coffee and an éclair from Pavlova.

… 11. May 2018

 Porridge with pumpkin seeds, beef jerky and butter. Also had a cup of coffee.

 Chili sin carne with brown rice and some carrot.

 Coconut-banana pastry.

 Lay’s oven baked yoghurt and herbs flavoured potato chips.

 Chili sin carne with brown rice and sour cream. Had another cup of coffee.

Bad karma period… 23. April 2018

 Garlic tomato soup with quinoa and tortellini.

 Hubby brought me a banana and nuts and berries in dark chocolate.

 Fries.

 A naked burger and some salad.

I spent most of the day in ER, because in the morning my entire right hand swelled up and turned purple. That was so freaky. After many hours of waiting both in the waiting room and then in the procedures room, where I had many weird and unfortunate people around me (some guy who pooped all over the place right before I got invited in; a drunkard lady who was certain she had alcohol-hepatitis and the only thing she could stomach to eat was alcohol; an old man who begged to wait in the procedures room, because he didn’t want to go back to his wife in the waiting room etc.), it was learned that I have thrombosis in one of the veins in my shoulder. That is so awful, but thankfully it’s treatable and not life threatening for the time being, so I am now getting treatment for it and will go in for further tests and procedures in the future. I hope I heal quick from this and that they will find out what caused it, so I can try and prevent it in the future.

Kombucha… 6. March 2018

 Mulk’s porridge (mashed potatoes with pearl barley) and some cottage cheese salad.

 Some water, kombucha and a quark pastry.

 Pelmeni soup with sour cream.

A co-worker is brewing different kombucha and water kefir drinks at work and we are all welcome to drink them as we please. I find it so cool! I am really into kombucha, but I am not too sure about water kefir yet as it slightly tastes like the liquid that forms on top of sour milk…
