For every good Swede moving to a new place includes at least one shopping trip to IKEA. And just because you move in a different contry doesn’t change this. So over the weekend I was at IKEA in East Palo Alto, a short 10 minute drive from my place, to shop some storage stuff for my closet.
And of course, I also stopped by at the “Swedish Food Market” to stock up on some necessities. Lingonsylft, hallonsaft, skorpor, köttbullar and “Swedish style limpa bread”.
At the cashier of the food market there was a guy and a girl. The guy asked me of I shouldn’t have and cream sauce as well to really eat the meatballs the Swedish way. I told him there is more than one Swedish ways to eat meatballs. He asked me if I was Swedish and it turned out both he and the girl was Swedish as well.
I promised I’d come back again..
