Steak with Pineapple Salsa

I went to the grocery store today so sweaty (I work outside at a camp), so tired (I work outside at a camp), and so not in the mood to do much when I got home.  Did I mention that I work outside at a camp?

I could barely put one leg in front of the other let alone think about dinner.  In my zombie-like trance (which is my fault since I am turning into an insomniac), I managed to muster up the energy to walk alllll the way to the back of the store to the recipe kiosk thingy.  I clicked on “healthy on a budget” and “steak”, and here you go.   Something I should have thought of before!   I cannot begin to tell you how simple it was to throw together and cook.  Just an FYI – I served the salad on the side rather than under the steak.

It’s funny because after the long walk to the back of the store, I realized that there was a recipe kiosk thingy right as I walked in.   How did I miss that one?
