we went

Should I be embarrassed to admit that the opening of the new Portland IKEA might be one of the highlights of my year? It’s so spacious! So bright! So colorful! Swedish meatballs!

Sam was particularly excited about the french fries that Action Hero Melissa shared with him. And apparently they eat soup with forks in Canada (observe what Melissa is eating). The apple cake was pretty good, but where is the Swedish Princess Cake? That’s what I want!

  1. My mom was there visting my sister and she said it must’ve been the grand opening (they went Sat.). I told her no, I doubt it (I see I was wrong). She said my sister’s fiancee kept mooing because they felt like cattle it was so crowded! I was also wondering…does Superbuzzy have a storefront or is it strictly online? We are heading to Portland in Sept. for my sister’s wedding –

    Hahaha – I just took the boys to Ikea in New Haven 2 days ago. They loved the Swedish meatballs. It’s such a great store.

    Did that IKEA just open? We were in Portland two weeks ago for a wedding, and stopped to kill time before continuing to the airport. I had no idea, but was just happy to be able to replace my frothing wand for cappucinos!

    One of the reasons I love super eggplant? Were I an alien beamed down to earth today, I’d have thought IKEA was a restaurant! Don’t miss the little Swedish torte thingie with the chocolate ganache top – deelish!

    My favorite IKEA meal is the salmon with potatoes and the chocolate cake. I love the chocolate cake.

    I haven’t tried it yet, but my local IKEA sells frozen princess cake in the Swedish food market. If you do try it let us all know how it is.
    And if you can get to IKEA early the breakfast is good too.

    Such cute guests! And a decent view! I’ll have to visit “your” IKEA sometime soon. Seattle IKEA is too difficult to get to and makes me really cranky. Though driving home big flat pack furniture from PDX is maybe not the best idea I’ll ever have.

    There is no shame in being excited an Ikea opening – a small one opens in a neighbouring town in November and I CAN”T WAIT. And those meatballs are to die for.

    Hey, I’ve been counting the days until IKEA opened. Love that place! I’ve never had their Princess Cake, but I do know of a good recipe (oh, my, it’s good)….
