I try so hard not to make you jealous.

After all, I have a terribly cute husband, a pretty little princess with chubby cheeks and a big bowl of Beef with Pineapples all to myself. It is FRIDAY after all….

..and Fridays are meant to be cheat days…hee. But I didn’t cheat.

The truth is..I am soo jealous. Sis ate two full bowls of rice topped with this yummies! Man, I could tell how well she liked it because of the “extra rice”.

I couldn’t. The  weighing scale and me are so not friends today. Well, we haven’t been really friends for a long long time now..

You know what makes me glad, though? I think sis will treat us to a movie today. So before I go, {if I go} I’ll leave you with the recipe and you can probably have this for dinner later.

Happy Friday everyone!

Pinya Bistek (Filipino Beef Steak with Pineapples)BISTEK is Filipino Beef Steak.
