It’s my birthday today!! Hubby just surprised me this afternoon and told me we needed to leave right away for New York City where he arranged a special birthday dinner for me. Wow, I didn’t see that coming! I intended to finish this post right away but because of this “surprise” I had to temporarily stop so I could prepare our clothes for the trip.

And what a surprise it was! I knew that we would be eating at a Filipino restaurant in Queens despite him not letting me know about it at that time. It made sense because it’s been awhile since we went to a Pinoy eatery and he knew that would totally delight me, of course! While we were about to begin eating, by the door suddenly appeared someone familiar. I was quite shocked and couldn’t believe my eyes – it was my little dear sister Eunice – all the way from the Philippines! I was totally caught by surprise that the only words that came out of my mouth was — “What are you doing here?”

Apparently, my sister was in Canada previously and then she and Mark made some arrangements so she could visit me for my birthday! That was really awesome! It made my day as it was totally unexpected and it was so wonderful to see my sister again after not seeing her for more than a year! March 16, 2016 certainly ranks as one of the best birthdays I ever had and I am grateful for my hubby and sister for making it so happy and memorable.

Now, without further ado, here’s a Filipino classic recipe for Corned Beef Hash – my sister and I grew up eating this for breakfast. Hope you all enjoy this as much as we did then and still do.

    My mom made corned beef hash when I was a kid. (of course, I'm embarrassed to say that she smothered it in ketchup!) Yours looks way better and super tasty!
