Alas, mine was in my purse across the room. I would have loved to get a photo of the funeral luncheon yesterday. It was epic in its Lutheran church basementness.
We had scalloped potatoes with ham, creamy fruit salad and buttered white bread. The only thing that broke up the beige on my white plate was the pile of dill pickles I added.
This was my first Lutheran church basement/funeral meal, but I'd heard all the stereotypes. It's nice that my first experience confirmed it. The food wasn't bad, for all it's bland appearance. I thought the scalloped potatoes were far more flavorful than those I remember eating at school. My mom sniffed in disdain, though, when I pointed out the herbs in the potatoes. She was all "That's because they use cream of celery soup." I figured it was too much to hope they had really added herbs on their own.
My mom said she'd rather have pizza at her funeral luncheon. I shall make that shit happen when the day comes.
