lovely things

21 Feb

On Sunday I went to Ikea to buy curtains.
And although I walked out one set of curtains short…
I left with these two lovelies and a stomach full of meatballs.

Elderflower syrup.
My sweet husband bought me some Elderflower syrup for Christmas.
The story goes that a co-worker was served a delicious sparkly beverage at a restaurant in San Francisco and was smart enough to ask the kitchen what the heck it was and how she could get her hands on it.
Come to find out it was club soda and elderflower syrup.
It has a sweet floral flavor.
I love it.
Even my Dad loves it.
And he’s pretty manly.
However, at about $30 a bottle (after shipping) it was a treat.
Not something we were going to have laying around the house at all times.
Ikea has changed this.
They sell it for under $5.
It might not be as high quality as other brands…but my tongue and memory can’t tell the difference.
So maybe it is.
Do yourself a favor…next time your in Ikea grab yourself a bottle or two.
You will thank me.
(and incase you’ve been turned off of Elderflower forever because of this stuff…let me assure you they do not taste the same)
We even poured a little over pound cake…I have a feeling the uses are endless.

I also snagged a heart ice cube tray.
Hearts aren’t only for Valentine’s Day.
