Oopsie… 24. March 2017

 My favourite way of dealing with leftovers- fry them into an omelette. So this is an omelette with some tomatoes, leftover dry bread and feta cheese.

 A banana. Cat for scale.

 Cherry pastry, coffee and a piece of raspberry What The Fruit?

I also had a mushroom stuffed pancake at work and had two more of these cherry pastries for dinner, but I got busy and forgot to snap photos D:

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

Junkfood kind of day… 22. March 2017

 Fried potatoes, sausage sandwiches and marinated cucumber.

 Kadi came to visit and she brought green tea cake and cookies from Killuke Kooki 😀 We had them with some peppermint tea. That cake was so so so good!

 Had about 1,5 bottles of beer… maybe a bit more.

 We had fun assembling some Japanese DIY candy kits. This one was called “Nyokonyoko Kororon” or as we called it “creepy candy wormies” xD The candy tasted weird and I didn’t like it much. It was fun to make though :p

This is a short vid of how the wormies were made:

 Sour cream and onion senbei that was spot on with the beer

 This candy kit was “Kurabete Neruneru”. The green goo was melon flavoured and the yellow one was pineapple flavoured. We both really liked the pineapple taste.

 Poppin’Cookin’ “Tanoshii Raamenya-san” aka “Fun Ramen Restaurant” ;D This was epic fun to make. It actually looked like real ramen and gyoza xD The gyoza tasted really nice too, the ramen had a weird texture, but didn’t taste bad.

 Chocolate ice cream break

 Soy flavoured senbei that also went great with the beer

 Tasty chickpea soup with feta cheese and assorted nuts and seeds. I followed this recipe to make the soup.

I had a really lovely and fun day with Kadi. The DIY candy kits were hilarious to assemble and after we were done with these, we just chilled with some beer and chattered away about all sorts of nonsense ♥

Most of the DIY candy was left for my boyfriend xD He appreciated it and ate them all without complaint when he got off work xD

Chicken stock… 2. February 2017

 Leftover breakfast: dried white bread and bacon fried into an omelette

 A banana

 Some chicken bouillon, chicken and orzo casserole with some tomato and pickled cucumber

 Had this Nutella thing as a late-night snack. Got it from my sis some time ago.

I tried making my own chicken stock today. I think it turned out well 🙂

Otherwise I spent the day sending out application letters and making phone calls.

Disappointed… 1. February 2017

 Fried potatoes and salad with garlic sprouts

 Sandwiches with bacon and avocado. I also allowed myself a beer, because of reasons.

 Chicken and orzo casserole with salad

I didn’t get the job I went in for an interview some weeks ago, so I was feeling pretty bummed out the entire day. I had already been daydreaming about working in that place, so the disappointment was great. It wasn’t that I was not qualified, but instead, after a bigger meeting, they decided a different direction for their establishment and thus they could not hire me. No hard feelings or anything, just disappointed. I did however get some neat recommendations from them for some other cafés and coffee shops, I had never heard of before, where to try and apply for a position. So, giving that a try.

The worst part about this is that it probably means more trips to the unemployment office for me and I absolutely hate going there. They always make you feel as if you are the most worthless scum of the earth, wasting “their” money and time. I have been thinking of applying to change my unemployment agent, but this could mean repercussions and I’m not sure I want to risk losing my health insurance. I really hope I’ll find a job before my next mandatory meeting. That however still doesn’t mean that any random job would do. I know what I want to do and I’ll continue searching for that.

I like cauliflower, but I hate the way it smells… 29-30. January 2017
