Flip Style Picnic

This is how Filipinos do picnic – an abundance of food. You’ll think you’re going to a feast. There’s marinated pork, fish stuffed with diced onions and tomatoes, hotdogs, macaroni salad, roasted chicken and a lot more like this spread.

This was a long weekend in August of last year. Hopefully, we will have another picnic this year with the same group.

Flip style picnic is no fun without food!
