Now you probably didn’t expect a cooking post coming on your way from this site and I don’t want you to get too excited because it is more like mixing a bunch of delicious stuff together, but still so yummi! Also not advised for you to make if you are trying to get into a bikini body before summer.. on the other hand having a little bite might fill your sweet tooth for some time.
So if you are in the mood for something really sweet that’s what you need to do.
Get your ingridients ready
150 g chocolate
2 tbs honey
150 g cookies
Crack the cookies into smaller bits and melt the chocolate. I advise you to make the cookie crumbles little bit smaller than you see mine here in the picture, but not into a powder because it will be nice to have some crunch when you bite in.
Melt your butter and honey together. I used my microwave for melting – no hustle.
Mix the cookies and chocolate together.
Add in the butter and honey mixture. Sorry about the foggy picture guys! By that time I was so eager to eat it that my hands were shaking. 🙂
Lay the baking paper on you choice of a dish and spread the mixture flat. Leave it in the fridge for overnight.
And you will have yourself a yummi goodness!
Do you have any easy ideas for sweets?
On the 7th day of my 100 happy days I was full on happy to get the tickets to Kings of Leon concert in Riga. Couple a weeks ago I had been checking where they will be performing on their tour and was thinking about maybe getting tickets to England or Sweden maybe. Then 3 days later came up the news that they will be having a concert in Riga, so very close, a day after my birthday, tickets almost half the price. I was sold – well actually I had some gift cards, so technically I only paid 1,90 or something for two tickets. Dream is about to come true after4 years at least. Yes, this made me happy!
Day 8. Also I was happy that the flowers from Valentine’s Day last longer than the day. I love me some fresh flowers, that’s all.
On day 9 I took time off. A good book and a cup of tea – not much more to say.
Day 10 – went on a meeting with an event planner and had a little walk around the old town. Even though it was evening the sky was still blue enough and well the little streets there have their own stories.
On the 11th day I really treated myself. A midweek bubble bath with Pretty Little Liars. Call me a teenager if you like, I can’t help myself.
Day 12. Sometimes you have to relax yourself after a stressful day with a bottle of numbing liquid (PS! not a permanent fix, not recommended, not for under aged).
The evening of day 13 we spent with our little team getting pampered. We had a late winter event where we had some make up artist making us even prettier. Everybody looked happy – that in turn made me happy.
Day 14 was chillax day. We had a movie night with Mehukatti, rum balls and honey pomelo.
The highlight of my day 15 was when we had hot chocolate with whipped cream. Cheers
Day 16. Estonia’s Independence Day. So I took a nice walk and captured some pretty pictures of my beautiful fatherland.
I stumbled up on this page the other day 100happydays.com and it was exactly what I needed. A reminder that every day has something to offer and that you just need to crab it and hold onto the feeling and why not make a memory of it as you go along. So a week ago, on the very day I found the page, I started my own 100 happy days. This is what I have been loving the 6 days.
Day 1 – So happy not to have to worry about dinner. I’m not an awesome cook and rearly even enjoy the cooking specially during the week when I’m so tired after a long day at work. So going for fast food sometimes feels like heaven.
Day 2 – I love to bundle up in my bed in the evenings ti browse some blogs or another Pretty Little Liars episode. A cup of tea maybe a candle and definitely comfy PJs.
Day 3 – A goofy T-shirt. Loving to get new stock in the store. I always get carried away with kids clothing and wonder to whom I could get the coolest items from the rails. This one just made me smile.
Day 4 – Developing photos. Maybe I’m oldschool like that but I love the feeling of holding pictures in my hand and I also want these memories to be there for the future generations :).
Day 5 – Happy to be home. Although I spend so much time at work I could call it my second home, coming back in the evening, tired as hell – the feeling you get when you walk in the door. My little nest, my hideaway.
Day 6 – Valentine’s Date – On the day of love me and D had a lovely dinner in a cute restaurant with a beautiful view and delicious food. Here is the dessert part of the evening
So this is my week in a nutshell. Are you following 100happydays.com? I would love to see what is keeping you happy throughout your days.
Hope you are having an amazing weekend!
How do you feel about these photogenic sweets? Believe it or not I just tried my first ones recently. They were ok, but I expected something more. Is it just the hype or did I not get the real thing?
So here’s the first post about how we try to spend less, to finally live the dream we have. I know there’s alot of tips out there and many ways to save, but the truth is you can’t start doing all the 100 great ideas at once. Well, at least I can’t. This will just get me depressed when I fail at one point and make me stop the whole run. So that being said, we well be taking baby steps. Easy and doable ways getting us closer to our dream home.
1. Free public transportation.
Starting from this year people living in Tallinn are able to use public trasport for free. This works awesome for us since we don’t have a car ( unbelievable and almost impossible – i know! ).
To get to ride for free you have to be registrated in this city. Funny part was that D who is a forigner, was written in Tallinn, but I was written into my hometown. I’ve been living in Tallinn for couple of years but never had the urge to registrate myself here. Now it was the only way to go. It took me about two pages to fill and a minute or two too drop it off to city council.
2. Stop eating out!
We are the kind of couple who on our days off together (never a full weekend or smth by the way) go to eat in a new restaurant or after a movie feel so hungry that can’t wait until we get home and be able to make something but rather hop in somewhere closer and grab a bite. We don’t usually go out for parties and stuff much so this is where our spending happens the most!
It often happens that a simple meal go’s on to some drinks and maybe end up with a dessert that you didn’t really need. Not to mention that nearby places usually have quite crispy prices.
3. Planning the meals.
This is one of the things I keep saying I’ll start doing but never really get to it, actually I did once and it was amazing and I should do it all the time – seriously, I know what I’m talking about. It takes a little bit of effort to figure the menu for a week (or when you are awesome maybe even a month or so) but it goes a long way. Make a list based on your menu and you are good to go. It takes so much pressure off, cuz you’ll know what you will be cooking you’ll know that you have all the stuff you need to make it and you won’t waste food. I realized the other day we throw out lot’s of food – that’s no good!
4. Making customer cards / bonus cards / members card etc.
Where we live coupons pretty much don’t exist, but to get discounts and offers it’s good to be a member at different shops and places. Some let you earn bonuses and use them later on, some give you discount straight away, some have special offers for you. As for now I still have two cards to make. Usually you just need to fill a form and maybe pay 1 or 2 euros for it, often it is for free.
5. Selling stuff you don’t use/need anymore
Great way to make a little extra for things that are hanging around the house but not being used. It could be clothes, electronics, whatever you find someone else would need more.
I can’t describe in words how much can an unfinished project upset me. That’s why I decided to get it finally over with my painting today. Due to impation it didn’t turn out to be as nice as I wanted, but that’s another post..
To feel powered I treated myself with a leftover salad and some juice. I used some lefover chicken, found a tomato, half a cucumber and a red sweet pepper from the fridge. Toasted white bread in sandwich grill and boiled an egg, added a trop of oil and lemon pepper – my all time favourite, and there you have it. Delish!
PS! In need of feeling fabolous always put your drink in a wine glass!
