The Culinary Upside to Methodist Funerals

Yep....I'm full. That's the culinary upside of Methodist funerals. In the South, at least, it is the custom to have meals provided for the bereaved. And the leftovers are so, so, very good! Tonight we dined on leftover pork tenderloins, chicken wings, and desserts to die for. They were leftovers from the dinner prepared for the grieving family of a lost loved one. We ate, and remembered the lost loved one...but we ate and loved it. Hopefully, I'm not the only one so richly blessed.
Amen and Amen!

Lunch following a funeral is pretty common up here in Wisconsin too. And, of course I am a little biased, but UMs are the best cooks. I have a collection of church cookbooks to prove it =)

I think it's that way everywhere in Methodism...bring out the best cooks for every...that is...EVERY...occasion.
Thanks for the input.
