I am always incredulous when it frosts or freezes here in Florida. It just doesn't seem like it's possible, but it often happens here in Central Florida. Hence, we really have to watch the weather forecast so we are ready for it.
It's that time of the year again! Well, it's been that time of year again for a while now. See, I'm normally way behind this time of the year, but THIS year - I'm actually keeping up.

Let's talk about Korean bibimbap! Now I'm starving just thinking about it. Mmmm...crackling rice in the bottom of a hot stone dolsot, with piping hot bulgogi and vegetables topped by a fried egg. Hot and spicy food for a cold, fall day - I'm in!
