Meal Planning Mondays are an experiment to see what works for my family. I like trying new recipes. I have too many recipes that are not being utilized. This week I committ to making these recipes… Korean Bulgogi and Baked Chicken Tacos. These recipes will continue to be made ahead time and frozen.
