IKEA Shopping

I went to the new IKEA in Stoughton today with Tobe and the Contessa di Pomidori. It has just opened and we wanted to see what all of the fuss was about. If you are a fan of Scandinavian anything... this is the place for you. They really do have just about everything for the home and at really great prices. We had a terrific time. We got there early and had breakfast at the Cafe. Breakfast for 3 with eggs, potatoes, bacon (for those two... I had only an "english") with coffee and two sparkling apple juice was just over $8! A bargain!

We really took a tour through the whole place and finally had our fill of shopping so we went back to the Cafe for their signature Swedish Meatballs. They are about the size of a quarter so you need to have a few of them, but boy were they tasty. 15 meatballs was $5.99 including steamed new potatoes. The Contessa had the gravlax ( a generous portion) served with greens for $5.99 as did Tobe. Boy the place was full of bargains. It was also full of gay men. I swear... open a store full of home decor and furnishings and do they ever come. It's like the "store of dreams". You build it and they will come!

Go have a look. It's worth the 45 minute drive from Sandwich.
