We think kimchi bibimbap is the ideal way to get your fix of veggies.
I love cooking for my fiancé and planning meals for us, but cooking for two often proves to be difficult. If I don't make a plan, I end up running around in circles at the grocery store and wasting half the ingredients I've bought (and I hate wasting food). Enter What's Cooking This Week -- my meal plan and grocery guide. This way, I can make the most of my ingredients and my leftovers.

Last week, crisp pancetta topped both a Minestrone Soup and Tomato & Goat Cheese Flatbread. This week, kimchi is used in both Crispy Bibimbap and a Kimchi & Bacon Grilled Cheese.
