Travel begets travel. On a recent trip, I had my first taste of bee bim bop while thinking of Linda Sue Park. My first trip to Korea is coming up in December. You can be sure I’ll be reading (and rereading) a lot of Linda Sue Park this fall and subjecting the kids to a Korean-themed storytime upon my return. To aid the smallish illustrations in Bee-bim Bop, I used milk filters to make larger versions of all the foods that go in bee bim bop.
The ingredients used in Linda Sue Park’s version of bee bim bop: the central bowl of rice, garlic, green onions, spinach, carrots, meat, bean sprouts, hot peppers, and a fried egg.
The (mostly unchopped) ingredients piled around the rice in the bowl with the fried egg and hot peppers on top. Dig in!
Finding Flannel Friday
This week’s Flannel Friday round up is hosted at Mel’s Desk. To find all past and future roundups, head on over to So Tomorrow.
Completely unrelated to flannel, if you’ve been to South Korea, I’d love any reading suggestions and travel tips.
