FOOD on Easter ^_^

Hello everyone, I hope you guys had a great Easter and for those you who doesn't celebrate it, I hope you had a great Sunday ^_^. I  just wanted to share WHAT i ATE on Easter day. I  stayed at home, relaxed and my family got down and whipped up some classic Filipino dishes. I may be bias but my family sure makes the best Filipino food I have ever eaten in my life. I definitely stuffed my face for lunch and dinner.

Here's the food.

Kare-kare. A stew made from Peanut sauce with variety of vegetables, tender beef, ox tails, tripe. It goes really well with...
