Lutherans #409

ELCAers aren't the only ones who hyphenate.

For the church picnic tomorrow, the bulletin says,

Each family is asked to bring a dish according to the first letter of their last name:

A-H: Veggie Salad, Veggie Tray
I-Q: Potato Salad, Pasta Salad, Coleslaw
R-Z: Jell-O, Salad with fruits, plain fruit

As if. Who takes "plain fruit" to a picnic? Who takes a veggie tray?

These liberal Lutherans (the kind where the female pastors and even some of the male ones have hyphenated last names -- it's a requirement). So healthful. You sure wouldn't find this nonsense at a synod Lutheran picnic.

Or maybe it's just that this is the Wauwatosa Lutheran church and not the one in a blue-collar neighbor where SH and I got married.


You see here some of the food at St Stephen's, where we still go occasionally. None of this veggie tray nonsense. The plain fruit is just because someone got lazy and picked up the tray at Pick and Save, not because there was any concern about having Healthful Alternatives.

We're taking zucchini bread. Chocolate chocolate-chip zucchini bread. SH says that's a vegetable.
