(Edible) bits and pieces

I've been on break for two weeks and I've only done two posts - pretty inexcusable! I have been leaving the house pretty often, with my camera in tow, but I don't end up taking enough pictures to warrant a whole post. I feel like our days/evenings out always centre around food (not ashamed!) so here's a bunch of food pictures for you.




In the last two weeks, I've been to the new IKEA (Tempe) twice. I'm not refurnishing my room, or even into homewares, but I love the food they have there. Like that pear drink (I just realised that earlier on I had "peach". It was an accident, I do know the difference!). The meatballs and mash are good but I liked the sausages they used to have better!


I've been introduced to Mad Mex, this Mexican chain fast food place that seems to be opening everywhere.



We also went to San Churro and shared the fondue for two... between three of us. It was pretty amazing.

Let's cross our fingers and hope I do better posts in the next couple of weeks, haha. As for other things... I've tweaked my About page (I feel pretty narcissistic for having one, but I love reading other people's About Me pages. If you've got one, I've probably read it) and Links (I'm thinking of categorising them somehow. I tried to do it by type of blog but it was too hard).

Edit: For some reason, a lot of people's posts aren't showing up on my Blogger dashboard, which is really annoying! I might start using Bloglovin' more now (right now I only use that for blogs I can't seem to follow with Blogger).

  1. Oh, I love that wherever you live, you can always get the same meatballs and the 'ekologisk kolsyrad pärondryck' in IKEA. :') I love to go to ikea and just eat there and wander around in the huge halls and probably buying only some cheap toys or swedish candy, haha. And now I feel like rewriting my about me page~

  7. I haven't eaten at Ikea in ages, my old housemates and I went through a phase of eating lunch there ALL the time because it's so affordable (: Wish we had a Mexican fast food place in England, all of ours seem to be 'proper' restaurants haha. x

  10. Yep, 11 degrees is warm in November. We usually have below 0 in November...or at least not warmer than 4-5 degrees :/

    It's fun to see pictures from IKEA on other people's blogs. For me as a Swede, it's pretty awesome that you can eat Swedish meatballs over there haha )

  11. Wow, there are so many food pictures! I love how you've been to so many restaurants and tried so many things, because that's something I can't imagine myself doing since I am possibly the most pickiest eater on this planet. And I love your "About Me" page :)

  13. I love snacking at Ikea, too! Have you read the NPR article about the Ikea in Shanghai? Apparently, elderly folks gather at the Ikea cafe to find love!

  14. Ah, yum! This all looks so delicious.

    I love reading About Me pages as well, haha, so I'm glad I'm not the only one.

  15. My mouth is watering now! It all looks so yummy! I really like the food in IKEA. Whenever I go, I come back with unnecessary candles and photo frames, and an ice cream, dime bars and the meat balls. Yummy! xxx

  17. Yes, darkness at 3:30pm might sound terrible o(and okay I admit, it isn't that much fun). But in return we get a lot of daylight in the summer. In July we have daylight from around 3:30am to 10pm. That's amazing! :D

  19. I love Ikea (I'm going to blame 500 Days of Summer for that one). Yeah, blogger keeps going weird on me too, looks like bloglovin' will be getting a few more users...

  20. Oooooh nice! Foooooodah! I really like the items they have at IKEA too. I had a great wrap a few weeks ago there. With salmon and some sort of sauce, it was amazing. I think your food photos always make everything look even more yummy than it already is. I wish we had 'Mad Tex' opening here. I would love a lovely Mexican restaurant.

    And I dig the new layout/about/links. It's good. I like the pictures on your about. And the fact that you're actually addicted to internet shopping too! (and freely admitting it, hehe)
