Breakfast at Ikea
My favourite lunch treat at the moment is Ikea meatballs with homemade spiced yoghurt served in a wrap or pita with baby spinach or rocket leaves and generally cucumber and/or tomato, depending on what else I have on hand. I cook a few meatballs in the microwave, the yoghurt is simply a tablespoon of low-fat Greek yoghurt (I'm loving Jalna at the moment) with some garlic powder, onion powder, ground cumin, ground coriander, paprika and salt and pepper. It makes the tastiest lunch wrap. It's so quick too!
Anyway, toward the end of last week I was keeping D well informed on my freezer meatball levels as we were quickly coming to the end of my bag. D very kindly agreed to take me to Ikea on Sunday morning to restock (we couldn't go on Saturday because he was finally going to get his hair cut!).
We have only recently discovered the fun of the Ikea restaurant. It's astonishingly cheap and it's quite tasty too. The cooked breakfast with sausage, bacon, egg, hash brown and tomato is only $2.95 and you can get a bowl of baked beans for an extra 50c. D likes to get a chocolate muffin as well, but that's $3. Refillable cups for coffee or hot chocolate are only $2.95! We had a huge breakfast and it cost under $13.00. Just what you need to get you prepared to take on the massiveness that is Ikea.
We have never been to the restaurant when it wasn't breakfast time and I really want to go back to try some normal food. We are working on this and hopefully I can try some of the other yummy things they have on offer soon.
