As I've noted before, sometimes I buy envelopes of old photographs, some of which I want and others, not. Anyway, I don't throw any of them away, but I do have a box of old snapshots that will never get posted on this blog. This one was kind of floating between those two poles, but in the end, I decided to publish it because it reminded me of my childhood. I grew up in a small town where there was an endless stream of fundraiser/potluck dinners. My mother couldn't cook worth a damn, so I enjoyed eating other people's food, and while it's true that those potlucks were dominated by macaroni casseroles and ambrosia (I'm still not certain what ambrosia is) it was a hell of a lot better than what I got at home.
There's a processors stamp on the back, "PRINT MADE BY KODAK, R, SEP. 76." The R stands for R-print, a reversal image made directly from a color transparency.
