Dad bought some beef tenderloin and gave some to me. I love beef but hardly have the chance to cook at home because Dearie Suki don’t take beef. So, even if I cook beef at home, it will be all for me. I don’t really introduce beef for both my kids except for the beef burger they ate at the fast food chains. When I cooked the beef with spring onion and ginger last week, my kids don’t really like it. They just took the sauce and ate with rice. Ee-Thern asked me, why the meat so yucky! Sigh…its either my cooking is bad or they don’t really like beef.
