I'll be better next week


I mean that in more ways than one, next week has a lot to live up to. I forgot to put together my favorites list and have only posted very sparsely. I apologize. I also promise not to feature so much food! What is that about?

Yesterday Jeremiah & I took a road trip to IKEA, something we do once a year. We try to stock up if we can, knowing we probably won't be taking the 11 hr round trip again for a while. I can't believe how much work it is to leave for just a day. My mom watched Israel because what 16 month old wants to drive 5 1/2 hrs just to shop for 3 and get back on the road to head home? I know none.

He had a great day with his "Abui", short for abuelita, and we came home exhausted. I'll show you what we got next week. I can tell you this, I'm the one who assembles all furniture in our house. Jeremiah is a guy's guy, don't misunderstand me, he has the capabilities, he just lets me do it because I get so excited about it. I really do, I've assembled every piece of furniture in the house, with only a few exceptions. I'm tired though and really want to get all of the cardboard out of my living room.

Here's my lunch during the trip. I have to say I love their food, maybe just because I work up a hunger but it is always so good. Princess cake, my new favorite dessert!


  1. For Ikea is worth it, I love Ikea and we miss it because we don't have one here in Puerto Rico,so I always find things on ebay, but when we lived in California that was awesome, we love it. Have a great weekend.

  2. Oh...I so love IKEA. Our closest is 6 hours away. But it's worth the road trip every now and again. And yes, their food is delish!

  3. I love the vegetable medallions from Ikea!
    Sorry that it's such a long drive.
    Ours is only a half hour but we keep our visits sparse because I tend to get got up in the "ikealand" feeling and want to buy a bunch of stuff.

  4. Yum, looks so good! All the food is probably about (if it's snowy and cold where you live) the weather. I feel like all I've been doing is eating! Have a relaxing weekend!

  5. hello there!!! oh i was recognizing this food!!! never tried the dessert though, not the fish, but i always enjoy eating on ikea too!!! there is something about those meatballs :):) have a great weekend!!! hugs, twiggs

  6. #1 I LOVE LOVE LOVE Ikea!

    #2 I would definitely do a 11 hr roundtrip just to peruse Ikea

    #3 I love the name Israel calls his grandma "abuelita"

    #4 I love all the food you post. It makes me want to try out some new recipes!

    can't wait to see what you got!


  7. I can't believe you made that trek for Ikea! We went the other day (we have one five miles from our house) and I had your exact meal. Looking forward to seeing what you got.

  8. I'm the exact same way. I absolutely love putting together Ikea furniture! Sometimes the pieces come out a little wonky, but I blame that on the manufacturers ;)

  9. My name is Ish-you'd do it too if you saw what we have to work w here in ID ;) Don't take it for granted ha.
    Jen those little savory tarts are to die for!

  10. looks soooo good :-) happy weekend!
