IKEA Meatballs with Cream Sauce

Hello Again 🙂

So I haven’t actually tried to make these yummy Swedish Meatballs, that we get when we visit Ikea, but I am making them this week.  Here’s a recipe I found online, and I really hope it is the right one because they are so good!  I will post some pictures and comments for you in the near future 🙂

As you know, you can also buy them at the Ikea store, along with the delicious lingonberries.  I will not be making the lingonberries this week, and it doesn’t look like lingonberries are sold in any local supermarket, so I think maybe I’ll just buy those because they are really good too 🙂
