Food is still my only hobby

Can the sun please remember that Croatia exists and come hang out with us for a little bit? The weather this week has been shitty and cloudy. There was sun, but some of us (ME) are working in the morning and since Croatia does that dumbass clock-changing daylight saving thing, by the time I actually can go for a walk the sun is gone(if there was any that day). I need to buy some vitamin D, I am getting depressed.

Let me talk about food because that’s not something I have been talking about too much lately haha. I am getting obsessed with making food but that’s what happens to me when I have a new project I like. The same with this blog and The Poetry Bar, it just consumes my thoughts.

Aren’t these like just some beautiful pancakes. Also, I will probably not go home until Christmas Eve and I am sad about that so I bought 4 Christmas decorations to make myself feel better. This picture was possible because I bought a camera I cannot afford after breaking the lens on my phone camera, ordering a new one 3 times and all three of those people scammed me and sent me some shitty plastic.

I decided to go for the American style pancakes today because I can use this blueberry “sauce” or spread or whatever on them. In Croatia we eat crepes and feel free to read that word in a terrible French accent like I usually do. Or better yet, try reading the Croatian word for pancakes/crepes: Palačinke. If there’s a square or some weird sign in the word is because your device maybe does not recognize this letter of the Croatian alphabet which is like a C but with a small V on top of it. I know that from this very professional description, you can already tell I studied languages and am actually, according to my bacc. diploma, a philologist. #education

So anyways what I was actually trying to say is that it’s easier to use a healthy homemade sauce on american pancakes which is why I made them. If I had done crepes I would go and buy Nutella, Linolada, Kras Express (I know you don’t know these last two things, but it’s for like the 4 Croatian people who actually read my blog – I see you!) because that’s what I want to eat my palačinke with. It’s how my grandma used to make them for me and even though I am trying not to eat heavily processed food full of sugar – I am not giving up on some things. No.

These random posts about my boring life are because I lack the creativity to write poetry lately. I think it’s because, despite being a bit down because of the pandemic, I am overall happy in my life. I still have to remind myself of all of the good things that I have to keep that feeling of happiness, but I am feeling good lately. Like my family is healthy, for the first time in my life I am in a relationship and happy about it (we celebrated our 6 months recently, still can’t believe it), I have a job and I am also healthy and I am making better choices in life for myself. So yeah, I am trying to keep this happiness and not let my mind get the best of me because that does happen sometimes. I start to overthink or I just start imagining negative things in my head and I get really anxious and sad. I know there are a lot of people who go through the same thing. Just want to let you know that we are in this together.

Since I started to do these daily posts and update you on the fact that my life consists of working and cooking, I was actually thinking about filming vlogs and uploading them to my Youtube, but I don’t think it would be very fun to watch because my life is just like: get up, spend 8h working from home, cook and eat, force yourself to walk and exercise for a bit, read or watch something and go to bed. But I am still considering that idea of filming how boring and random my life is. Let me know what you think down in the comments.

As always, let me know what you have been up to, how are you spending your weekend, what’s been happening?

I am going to go and watch Netflix today because I am so full that I need to rest for a bit. Just to let you know I am a little pig, this stack of pancakes was dessert. I had a full meal before that – a couscous salad with chicken and a bunch of veggies. I can’t breathe. By the way, let me know in the comments if you have some TV show suggestions for me. I have Netflix and HBO GO so those are the two platforms to choose from. Movies are welcomed as well.

Sending love and positive vibes,
Luna

Weekend pancakes

Good morning guys and happy weekend!

Today is my work Saturday but I woke up feeling all types of happy for no apparent reason. I was also inspired to make this fitness friendly Saturday breakfast which includes pancakes.

I already told you that I am struggling to stay healthy and active during quarantine and I successfully turned it into my daily habit. I don’t skip my workouts and I try to eat a healthy and balanced diet. It is really paying off since I have been feeling much better and am able to cope with this current situation with a positive attitude.

My shift starts at noon and after that I will be resting and tomorrow I am going over to my sisters where we are celebrating Mother’s day. I can’t wait for my nephew to give me a proper workout because that child never stops. He is super active and is always running around. The last time I spent the morning with him my tights were killing me because he made me jump with him for hours on his trampoline. Yes, he has a trampoline (long story).

I am really happy about Croatia slowly going out of quarantine. Our bars and restaurants are being opened starting 11/5/ and there are less restrictions. We already know this will probably cause a new surge in the number of ill people, but I think that we will get through this fine because we became much more careful. I just hope people will still practice social distancing and keep themselves safe.

How is the situation in your country and what are your plans for the weekend?

Sunday Funday

nephew pancake family food

On Saturday, my birthday, the weather was just awful. It was cold, windy and rainy so I’ve spent my birthday recovering from the previous night out with my girls. Yesterday my mum and sister took me out to eat pancakes and celebrate my birthday. Of course that my little nephew was also there to make my day. You see the pictures very well so I don’t think I need to say how good the pancakes were.

Pancakes for dinner

Today I’ve got an A from one of my toughest exams and my roommate and I went out to celebrate with some pancakes. And yes, they were as good as they look.

pancakesMy roommate went for a Raffaello coconut version while I went all chocolate. Mine is with Nutella, Kinder Bueno, chocolate mousse and some bananas inside, you know I just wanted to keep it healthy haha.

chocolateI love the interior design of this pancake bar. It’s modern but a bit rustic and it just has a nice atmosphere. When you sit there you feel like home. Here are some pictures.

homeI wore a whole black outfit in order to make myself look slimmer after the sugar bomb I ate. Just kidding, most of the time I wear black. I’m in love with my new hat because it’s just so beautiful, goes good with everything and most importantly hides bad hair days.

all black outfit ootdI’m going to spend the rest of the evening on the couch watching TV shows and being fat. Have fun guys, kisses!

Saturday breakfast

So I’ve been through a lot this week, from my illness to my exam, so I just decided to treat myself this morning with some pancakes.

saturday pancakes

I don’t think I ever talk about this, but I just loooooove food and also I’m big on healthy eating but not in the way that I’m going to judge people for not eating healthy or try to make you convince you should prep your meals in advance etc. I just eat mostly healthy for me and my pancakes are also semi-healthy so I will just put the recipe here if you want to try them.

Ingredients:

  • whole wheat flour
  • 2 egg whites, one egg yolk
  • baking powder
  • honey, sugar, stevia or any other sweetener
  • milk (low fat, almond, soy….)

Put the egg whites into a special bowl and mix them until you get an egg whites snow. In another bowl mix your egg yolk with some milk and add flour, baking powder and something to sweeten it up if you want to. Put the egg whites into the mixture with a wooden spoon. It’s important to do it like that so it keeps it’s texture.

Get some oil (I used coconut oil) into the pan and make little pancakes. If you didn’t add any sweetener into the mixture you can eat them with some honey, maple sirup or, like I did, with some jam. I buy this jam for years because it has a higher percentage of fruit and has some chunks of fruit in it and it’s sooooo delicious. Hope you like my recipe and that you’ll try it!
