Heart shaped beef and tomatoes

Preparation time:   Cooking time:   | Servings: 1

I went to a craft store with my daughter and she saw there a pink diary with a big heart on a cover. She asked me with a gentle voice if she can have it to be her first 'drawing' diary (as she can not write yet...). It was such a cute request I could not resist. Back home she started to draw all her favorite things inside and write all the letters and numbers she knew how to write. On the first page she drew a big heart and wrote her name inside. When she saw a heart shaped beef and tomatoes on her plate, she was amazed and she loved it! She also liked a lot little polenta flowers.
