I do enjoy going to Ikea for a little outing, have some food and a wonder around the vast store, perhaps purchasing a candle holder or something on the way..
I do like their furniture but I find it rather over-priced and tend to go there to get ideas rather than buy stuff, then I’ll go and find what I like at a local shop.
I really love the food though, especially the great Swedish Meatballs!
I’ve never been anywhere where they’ve managed to shove quite so many chips in a little pot either..
Lovely lovely meaty balls of loveliness!
The gravy is just perfect, and the slightly hard boiled potatoes (I usually mash them up with the gravy and a little salt and pepper, heavenly!)
The Ikea Gravad Lax is very good aswell with the nice tangy sauce, my Mom said she made it once but it took about 3 days, so I don’t think I’ll bother..
If you’re interested though, there’s a BBC Recipe for Gravad Lax here.
Of course the plates get licked clean 🙂
After that I headed into the store to educate the next generation of children via the medium of soft-toy art.
I call this beautiful peice:
“Missionary with rim”
Followed by my special:
I’m good eh?
