Instead of making the quiche I was supposed to have for dinner tonight, I went to Ikea with a few of my friends, one of whom luckily had a fantastic minivan to cart us around in. Of course, I didn’t really need anything from the store, but it is just so hard to resist a walk around in the best place ever. Rather than having quiche for supper, I had a glorious plate of Ikea meatballs, which I think is a good alternative to a homemade dinner. At the end of the day, I came away with a few useful cooking things, including some new dishes so I can plate my food in a pretty manner, a pizza cutter, and a cake lifter!
Since Ikea has a bunch of great things, I also managed to pick up a six-pack of watercolour paints, perfect for some craft project that I will be completing at a later date. So much cheaper than buying from an art store. Go Ikea!
One final note: I got a care package in from my mom today, and in it came many treasures, including a souvenir T-shirt from when my dad went to Stockholm (which I wore to Ikea, how Swedish of me) and this …
Thank you mom and thank you Ikea!
