I guess they liked my food...

...and I did all of it myself, my birthday present for my grandma who turns 69 today! Grattis MOMMO! Love you!

"Jassis" Taco Pie

Heyoo, my day has looked pretty much like all days this week: wake up at 10, eat breakfast, study. Well, today I did have an important meeting that I'll be telling more about later (hopefully) and then after that I went for a short visit to Emppu's, we practiced a song we'll be singing in school next week. And soon I'll start making my infamous TACO PIE (It's pretty ridiculous that all of my friends want me to do it, 'cause it's just a recipe from the internet...but so good < 3)

Someone asked me to publish the recipe here, so here it is:

Dough:
75 g of butter
4 dl of flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoons of salt
1 dl of milk

Basically just mix the dry ingredients together and add the others,  grease the mold you're using with butter and push the dough against all surfaces

Stuffing:
400 g of ground beef
taco seasoning
tomatoes
unions
creme fraiche
graded cheese

Brown the meat with the chopped onions and add the taco seasoning (you can add a little water so the mixture isn't too dry). Top with sliced tomatoes, creme fraiche and cheese and put in the oven at 175 degrees for about 45 minutes. You can add other stuff in the stuffing, like jalapenos, nacho chips or salsa sauce but the meat and the tomatoes are already pretty filling!

Stuffed

Today's been a busy day, I did manage to read for an hour or so in the morning but then I met up with julle and kata in town, we bought some presents for some friends and had a coffee. Then I met my cousin Janni at the cinema, we went to see a finnish movie called "Vuonna 85" or "The year 85", it was ok, not really that good, a little bit messy and predictable, the only thing worse then the movie was really the popcorn we shared, it tasted really weird and we ended up eating like 1/3 of it!

The Janni came here for dinner, we had delicious salmon and sweet potato with cheesecake for dessert, yum! And now I'm stuffed, so that was that day!

You promised forever and a day

When I got home from practice my mom informed me that my brother had the stomach flu and now I immediately feel sick, but it's mostly psychological. Besides, I can't remember the last time I would've had the stomach flu, probably 5 years ago or something! So fingers crossed I don't have anything, specially with all the fun stuff I have planned for tomorrow!

Here are some pics from Saturday when I went out with my friends from work!


Terrific Tuesday

It's been a good day so far, the best thing with this "reading-vacation" is that I can wake up at 10 every day, aah! Yes, so I've of course been reading for about 3-4 hours, then I got some really exciting news, don't want to reveal too much since I don't want to jinx it, but hopefully it'll all go well and then I can tell you all!
Then I got my paycheck so I'm finally not broke anymore, HURRAY!
Just in time for the weekend when to of my very good friends turn 19, I have to come up with something to buy them (don't expect too much though, I'm not THAT rich...heheh). And tomorrow I get to see my wonderful cousin Janni, I'm going to the movies with her and it's been way too long since we really met up and had some catching up :)

A cold, sweat, hot headed believer

I'm done with reading for today. And that's all I have to say about that!

I got my results for the German listening comprehension and I'm really pleased, I got the best grade I've ever gotten, go me! So to celebrate here's my cover of Rihanna's Stay :) Hope you like it although I did mess some parts up because I just learned the lyrics today!!!

Oskarziii

Like I said, yesterday I spent the evening at ella's, we first ate tortillas and then played this friends game with a few rules of our own :P Then at 12 we started watching the 3 hours long pre-show, I do admit I did fall asleep for 30 minutes one hour into the show, but I was awake for the rest, tired but awake (I think that's pretty good, considering I didn't get much sleep the night before because I was out with my friends..) Others (Julle and Essi) weren't as strong as we were so they ended up sleeping through the show, nut luckily I had Ella and Emppu!
At seven the show ended and I drove home, it was weird when everybody else was going to school and to work and I was on my way home to go to sleep. I slept until 2, ate (sidenote: I found glass in my food so I'm kinda hoping I haven't swallowed anything that will make my insides bleed, lol) and then I've been reading for almost 2 hours now!

Jari Sillanpää


Yesterday was so much fun, I went out with my friends from work and we had a blast, other people probably thought we were really annoying 'cause we were laughing loudly all night long but it was so nice to go out with them, it brings me back memories from summer when we basically saw each other almost every single day! I couldn't hope for better work friends!

Today was my last day in Taikatalvi, and tonight I'm going to ella's to watch the Oscars, fun fun fun :) (sori essi jos näät tän, mut toi kuva oli pakko julkasta XD) Yeah and that title is an inside joke from yesterday :P

Great day

Today has been a good day so far, at work there were a lot more people so I didn't have to sit alone in my kiosk doing nothing, and all the customers were really nice and sweet, plus it wasn't as cold today! When I got home I finally decided to clean my room and I also ended throwing some stuff away, well not yet but picking out some stuff for me to sell at the flea-market.

And tomorrow it's saturday and that means I get to go out with all my friends from Moominworld, woohoo! So to reflect on my mood here's a little SNL digital short: (Actually watching this now, it really doesn't reflect my feelings 'cause I'm not on crack XD But it's still funny)

21.2

It's was freezing today, seriously like -16 degrees when I went to work, but luckily I had a lot of clothes on me, so I wasn't freezing to death, only a little bit from the toes. It was so cold that all water in the kiosk had frozen and the coffee machine wasn't working, but we fixed it!

After emppu drove me home I was so worn out I had a nap, and now I'm ready again to go work out! Oh and my dear auntie Tessa is coming for a short visit, I'm sure she'll love the weather here compared to sunny florida ;)
I wish this doggie could come and visit me too, I miss you LULU! I mean cmon, that's the cutest little thing I've ever seen!!

(Crappy) Cupcakes

Yeaaah, my mood suddenly got a lot better when I made these delicious cinnamon-blueberry cupcakes with yoghurt fosting! Yum yum yum, I'm surprised over how good they turned out, I'm becoming quite the wizard in the kitchen! I wish I could take fancy beautiful cupcake pictures but I'm settling with these crappy webcam ones instead. Since when did my blog turn into a foodblog? (ok, I only had that ONE picture of the coffee and cookies and that doesn't really count as cooking... :P)


'Cause you had a bad day

Yep, it was lonely at work, really slow boring day and freezing, I was literally wearing 2 pairs of knitted socks and 3 longsleeved under my jacket... So my plans today are just to stay at home, maybe visit emppu if I feel like it, right now I really just feel like locking myself in the house.

I see people doing all kinds of fun stuff together with friends during the Holiday and I'm just working or reading which kinda suck, so I'm really really really looking forward to the weekend, I'm going out with my friends from work and watching the Oscar's with some other friends.... Please come sooner! I can still squeeze a fake smile for you!

Cookies & Coffee

The studying was a little bit less painful today, I made a delicious coffee and had some cookies, yum yum yum! And there was no one at home bothering me, in fact I'm still alone at home. I love being home alone, so relaxing when it's absolutely quiet, I can eat breakfast without disturbance, study in my pyjamas... but 3 weeks of this, well that's a little too much of loneliness even for me! Luckily I have work tomorrow (even though I'm alone in the kiosk there also... :D)
Later I have practice and now I'm just gonna take a chillpill. Btw, here are 3 more pictures from the cruise, like I said I didn't really take any pictures (they would have probably been awful anyways!) but Tiia posted some on FB! I'm going to do a more specific post about the senior abi day when I get all the pictures!

Catfish

No nap for me, instead I watched a "documentary", well it was more like a made for tv mini series about Julius Caesar, it was good and accurate and all but I couldn't stop laughing over their accents (British) and their lines. They way they talked sounded way too modern, I wouldn't have been surprised if they said something like "I'm Julius fucking Caeser, what do you expect me to do?" :D

Yeah, and then I also watched this real documentary "Catfish" and it was really interesting, I don't wanna give away too much but it's basically about meeting people on the internet and a guy's crazy story of how he met someone online and who it really was.
And yeah my grandma also came here today to pick up my little brother who is travelling to hers tomorrow!

1618

Well, my "vacation" has officially begun with 3 hours of reading about the fall of the roman empire, I'm almost longing to go back to work already :D No, History is interesting to me but after reading for hours you just lose you concentration, become tired and just bored about it all.
I think I'm gonna take a little powernap, clean my room and then continue. Luckily I only have one subject to study for, I pity those who have 2 or 3 coming up! And I'm already on a good way, I've made it from the beginning of times to the year 395 :P Just 1618 years to go...

I should really find some historicv movie or tv show to get me inspired a bit if you know what I mean ;)

#Not Tired Anymore #Throwbackmonday

Seriously, why do I always feel like sleeping when I come home but then when the clock is ticking and it's almost 9  I feel as awake as ever!? :D weird :P

I was just checking some old pictures from when I went to Sossen, I can't believe that's SIX YEARS AGO??? Crazy... So many photoshoot pictures and all of them edited with extremely high contrast XD
























#Tired

Day 2 of work completed, and now I have 2 days off which I will spend reading to my History exam that is in 1 month! Haven't really got anything interesting to tell you or show you since nobody on FB has uploaded any pictures (seriously people, just upload the pictures you have, I'm dying over here! :D) and I've just been working. The kiosk I'm at is pretty far away from all the happenings so not that many people come there, but they have horseriding right next to it so I get to watch all the ponies all day long XD forever alone.

Yeah well this was a pretty unnecessary post, all I have to say is I'm tired and happy that I get to sleep in tomorrow!
Ps. Gotta love emppu's sign.... :D

Taikatalvi

First day of working in Moominworld is over, it was actually pretty nice over there with all the snow, they had a lot of activities for kids and families! Today I'm just chilling at home with some taco's and some tv, LOVE that!

Ps. Here's a video of our "teacher-show", it's in Swedish but I thought I'd pst it if anybody from our school already didn't see it on FB :)

Bänkskuddardagen

Well ow that these two hectic days are over I finally have time to blog about them!

On thursday we had penkkis (Bänkskuddardagen, it's like senior day) and our theme was reABIty tv so basically reality tv. The seniors were dressed as different reality tv stars and we had different stations that were based on reality tv shows like Fear Factor, Project Runway, Jersey Shore, Amazing race and Dancing with the stars. The first graders were the ones that had to "complete" all the stations and we got to mess around with them all day long. After that we drove around town in a truck, screaming and singing and throwing candy to all the people watching us. It felt so good, having watched the seniors do this every year and now finally doing it yourself!




















Then we went to the cruise, it was also a lot of fun and I don't really have that many pictures... but yeah, I slept for maybe 3 hours so I'm kinda tiredXD
