I've had the hugest craving for Swedish meatballs for the past 3 or so days. Specifically, IKEA's meatballs, which is funny, because I have only ever eaten them once. I just remember them being really delicious.

Even though IKEA is close, it's not necessarily convenient just to go there for the meatballs. So I had to make do with other Swedish meatballs. In fact, I used this recipe for dinner tonight:

Unlike most recipes, I actually followed this one exactly. I just served it over mashed potatoes (because that's how IKEA does it) instead of noodles. And I didn't do the fresh parsley.

I was surprised how satisfying these meatballs were (but then again, anything with Tillamook sour cream is satisfying). I was craving cranberry sauce too (not the canned stuff - homemade, because that's how I roll), but I'm saving that for Thanksgiving (I have a bag of cranberries in the freezer right now). Instead, I took a can of the jellied cranberry sauce and mixed it with some natural applesauce and warmed it over the stove. It hit the spot. And I made some corn to round out the meal.

It was actually the first substantial meal I had all day. After being really sick last night, I was very careful about what I ate today. A small bowl of cereal for breakfast. Chicken noodle soup for lunch. But I'm feeling better now. Just a slight headache that has lingered all day (I'm thinking from dehydration), but after the night I had last night, I can handle that.
