Remember the time Michael & I went boating and feasting: Viking style?!
(Aka, the time we ate a traditional Swedish smörgåsbord on our overnight boat to Stockholm?)
I still have dreams about that night.
It was AMAZING. The only thing is… I do wish I had taken the entire tub of mustard herring back to my seat, and gobbled up every last piece. However, even despite my herring-related regrets, it was hands-down, the best meal ever.
Unfortunately, I can’t just hop on a boat to Stockholm any time I want. It’s far away, it’s expensive, and for most of the year, it’s ridiculously cold.
So when I started craving rye bread and meatballs, I was pretty stoked to hear that IKEA has an all-you-can-eat Easter Påskbord! That’s right, y’all. A lil springtime smörgåsbord, complete with herring, salmon, Swedish meatballs, lingonberries, and obviously ALL THE DESSERTS.
We obviously went.
There’s an IKEA less than 15 miles away from us! Which is much closer than the 5,249 miles to Stockholm.
And you guys already know how I feel about never-ending food.
I know you’re probs super jealous right now. An all-you-can-eat buffet in a Swedish-chain furniture store? Clearly the best.
Don’t believe me? See for yourself! We recorded a video of our experience, and you can see our #foodventure (complete with dancing) here:
Ughhhh, y’all, we ate sooooo much food.
I immediately went home and put on my biggest pair of sweatpants, and didn’t move for approximately 24 hours. At one point, I thought I might just curl up and hibernate for the next 3 months.
But was it worth it? RESOUNDING YES.
And in fact… IKEA also has an annual Midsummer Smörgåsbord in June. So when I start craving mustard herring and lingonberries, I already know where I can get my next fix.
