Blogging Marathon# 38: Week 3/ Day 1
Theme: One Dish, Different Countries
Dish: Korea — Kimchi Pancakes
Being a food blogger, I am always looking for new dishes to make. I rarely repeat or make the same dish again unless it is an everyday dish that the family is used to. My husband was saying the other day I cook for the blog and not for them. Mmmmm, I think I’m guilty of doing that, but I don’t usually comment when he says that because I need my taste-testers happy and not grumpy.
Talking about new dishes, when I made this Kimchi — I wasn’t actually sure what to use it in. Then I found Kimchi fried rice recipe which I really liked. But as I said before, repeating dishes is something that happens very rarely, I looked for something else to make with kimchi and I found these Kimchi pancakes on the Kitchn and they seemed simple and easy to make with just a few ingredients.
We are starting our 3rd week of Blogging Marathon today and my theme for this week is ‘One Dish — Different Countries‘. So I’ll be making 3 different pancakes from 3 countries in the next 3 days. Starting off with Korean Kimchi Pancakes.
