Wow-zas we got 5" of snow this morning.
What the heck?
Where did Spring go?
I know I said a billion times I am so over winter.
I'M SO OVER WINTER!!!
My poor flowers are all covered in snow.
I saw this recipe on another blog and fell in love.
It was so dang good.
I have been on an Asian food kick lately.
I love creating new recipes at home.
You should definitely give this a try.

You can eat the Korean coleslaw immediately or wait a few hours for the flavors to develop more.
