Comfort food combinations for Celebration of life services!!

Celebrations of life or funeral services are always so sad to attend but sometimes when you’re involved in making food for it, it’s important to come up with a comforting mix!! It’s a Yakima tribal custom to serve Salmon, and others may include some of the deceased  favorite foods, or foods that have meaning! One thing I think is important is picking foods that will be good for the family, you and those attending!
