: : The recipe you provide requires approximately 3 hours of preparation time. Not exactly food you can take with you in a hurry. What you might be thinking of is a "Funeral Omelet" - Break eggs into a bowl. Pour into buttered skillet. turn once in pan, then turn out. garnish with edible flowers. 10 minutes later you're at the wake.

: Maybe they kept pre-soaked raisins on hand just in case.

Yeah. If the health of the guest of honor took an unexpected turn for the better, those raisins could always be made into wine.
