Food Friday with a Friend!

May 4, 2010|4:17 pm

A week ago Friday, my friend Laurie and I ran away. She had a buy one get one free coupon for Ihop so we headed for the cities. After breakfast we wandered around the Mall of America for about 15 minutes. By then my friend Michelle had called and so we went to meet her at Ikea. After wandering around a bit it was time to eat again… so off to Ikea’s restaurant for their Swedish meatballs and lingonberries. Other people may have chosen healthier eats but I held out for the good stuff!~grin~ !

A visit to both a Whole Foods store and then Trader Joes was next on the list. We both wandered around and bought some healthy organic things we can’t get here in our town.

I had a buy one get one for Dunn Bros. Ice Creama so we set the GPS for the one in the direction closest to home. Much to our surprise we found it was housed in an historic old building in Eden Prairie. We enjoyed our drinks on the porch.

Isn't this a great venue for a coffee shop!?

I haven’t been happy with any pictures of me for years but at least I enjoyed getting this photo. Good coffee, great friend and a porch swing. Laurie and I think our next run away day should be a book or flower extravaganza!
