Welcome to last week in food!
Sunday we were still in Denver, and we had lunch at IKEA. We’re now totally obsessed with IKEA. We understand what everyone was going on about now. But more on that later. For now, the food. It was good, but there was WAY TOO MUCH. No one needs to eat 20 meatballs, right? We’re not complaining too much, though, because lunch was free! We just wish we could have found some to-go boxes or something.
Sunday night we went to The Cheesecake Factory, even though we wanted to stick with Denver places while on our trip. But there are only so many places open late on Sunday nights. We’re not too unhappy about it; The Cheesecake Factory is delicious. I really love their Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta (though the portoin size is enough for three meals). I want to learn to make it at home. And, of course, the cheesecake is the bomb. We got some to go so we could share it later on in the night.
Monday we drove back home, and we were so full on beef jerky and our late lunch at an Applebee’s in the middle of Kansas somewhere that we just snacked for dinner.
Wednesday we had leftovers.
Thursday Jonas and I took Jake to work so we could have the car for errands. We made sure to fit in a trip to City Market Coffee, easily one of the best coffeeshops in Kansas City. Our friends Nikole (pictured) and Amy recently purchased the shop, and we’re so happy for them! They’re going to make it even more amazing.
While we were at the City Market, we stopped into Al Habashi House to buy spices. They have a HUGE selection of spices, most of which are only $1 for a GIANT scoop. I love that place.
Thought I’d mention that we’re in love with Trader Joe’s Roasted Tomato Soup. It’s Jonas’s favorite right now.
We all went swimming at Jake’s work gym, so we needed something to be ready for us when we got home so that the kids could get in time. Crock Pot Roast did the trick.
Friday we had breakfast for dinner! Don’t worry, there were lots of oranges involved too.
Saturday we all walked over to Jerusalem Bakery for lunch. Love that place. The buffet is always fresh, everyone that works there is warm, and it’s kid friendly as well.
Then my mom made Jake a special dinner in trade for a bit of tech support. Hand-battered homemade chicken strips, glazed carrots, corn, mashed potatoes and homemade gravy, and berries with honey and lemon juice. It was the bomb. My mom is the best.
