A trip to the IKEA Bistro in Burbank. Are their Swedish Meatballs any good?
I was in the car a lot yesterday. Traffic snacks –
Leftover Shishitou Peppers
After our respective auditions, Christy picked me up for a trip to Burbank! (In case you were wondering what the title of this post stood for.)
Love the catalog, but the stuff never looks as good in person
More fun to browse here than buy, I feel
Definitely not worth standing in this line for some napkins!
We did pick up some Swedish groceries though…
…wound up with some very boring crackers, but there was definitely some interesting stuff to see!
I remember these chocolate/coconut-covered marshmallows from my trip to Paradis – they’re GREAT smashed on top of ice cream
Haven’t eaten in their cafeteria since I was a wee one…I convinced Christy to go for dinner
For $4.99 you get a plate of balls…
…cream sauce and lingonberry jam + mashed potato…
…a make-your-own salad…
…with horrific dressing options (we decided on fat free italian)…
…garlic bread + a Diet Pepsi
Christy and I split the balls + bread – the taters and soda were all mine
We also shared the veg
Sadly, the meatballs did NOT live up to my fond memories of them. They were quite rubbery, like a really bad soy version
I think I may have finally outgrown this store?
Not that I would say no to this kitchen!!!
How much stuff in your house is currently from IKEA? There’s about eleven in mine, and that’s not counting all the non-furniture items like utensils, glasses, lighting, sheets, plants, frames, etc.
