What would you love to eat for your last meal? 8/29/08

44 posts in this topic

There was an article in the paper about what people would choose as their Death Row meal. There were lots of interesting things that people chose..From the most culinarily exciting to their mom`s homemade goodness.

If you could choose an ultimate meal, regardless of cost, calories, or blood sugars..What would it be?

I know I talked ill of my MIL but it would be her meal that I would choose. Honey glazed ham, collard greens w/ham hock, potato salad, macaroni/cheese, corn bread, and sweet tea...Mmmm!

You see these scenes of death row in movies all the time. If I was on death row I don't think I would be able to eat at all. I guess if you were about to be executed you'd be different than the average guy anyway so maybe they do enjoy a last meal. :)

I dont think the story was literal in the sense that you are on Death Row or you are dying. It is what would be the ultimate meal for you.

We watch Anthony Bourdain on the Travel Channel, and his D.R. meal is these bones (beef I think) that are roasted, and you scoop out the bone marrow to eat on toast..Ewww! That is definitely HIS cause I would not eat that! LOL

In that case I guess it would be a really good steak, medium rare, a baked potato with sour cream a fantastic tossed salad and a glass or two of burgundy wine. :)

Ok, Heidi...are you sure you're a yankee? There's some southern blood in there somewhere with those food choices. I know I live in Texas, but I'm NC southern born.

Last meal...can I go to Saltgrass Steakhouse? Prime rib, their Romano potatoes which is a casserole with potatoes cut into chunks, cheese, green onion and I'm not sure what else, but it's really good, salad with honey mustard dressing, and a brownie sundae for dessert. If I can't have that...I'll take my ex-MIL's lasagna which she learned how to make from her ex-husbands aunt who was pure-blood Italian and only spoke about a dozed words of English.

Crab, shrimp and lobster, and well aged t-bone steak, garlic mashed potatos, garlic bread, a nice tossed salad, a nice Shiraz and a nice Chard, Cream puffs, a Napolean, and a chocholate eclair.

Hmmmm, I think that should do it :)

I'm planning on stuffing myself to death LOL

Terri, I am a New Englander thru and thru. My Mil`s food is real good Soul food. I even eat her ox-tails when she makes them. And I never thought I would eat that. My FIL is from N. Carolina.

I would start with a cheese crisp (melted cheese on crisp flour tortilla) with hot hot sauce on top. Then some sauted mushrooms, followed by ribeye steak medium and a margurita. Fresh cooked string beans flavored with beacon and hubbard squash with lots of butter.

For dessert strawberry pie.

This would have to be just before I died because it would kill me with pleasure. :)

Prime rib done medium well - preferrably prepared by the cooks at the Black Angus restaurant, or at least using the spices they use. With mushrooms & onions.

Baked potato with sour cream, butter & chives.

Ceasar salad.

Buttered corn.

Wheat rolls with real butter.

And for dessert - homemade fudge brownies with peanut butter frosting.

Oh, and an iced eggnog latte to wash it all down. lol!

medium well steak, mashed potaoes made with butter and cream cheese, Veggies, and carrot cake. I'm pretty simple to feed. But haven't had a good steak in awhile.

My meal would have to be filet mignon wrapped in bacon, a baked potato with onions and sour cream and corn on the cob. For dessert, it would have to be bread pudding with lots of raisins and whipped cream with just a regular coffee.

My meal would be my husbands homemade tacos. He says he doesn't do anything special but I have never been able to make them taste as good as when he makes them. I would also have my fathers Graham Wafer Pie. I don't know hoe he makes that but it is so good. And for a drink a large bottle of Bacardi Breezer in Strawberry Daquari flavour. That would be my all time favourite meal.

Oh, and we can't forget some cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory! They have a triple layer chocolate cheesecake that is UNBELIEVABLE! If I can't have theirs, I'll take some made by my sister (or my own).

Marg, poppadeaux's (I don't know how to spell it either) is awesome I've heard. I think the wing place you're thinking about is Buffalo Wild Wings. They do have great wings.

I was thinking pizza - a really good thin-crust pizza is pretty much the most perfect food I know of - and a glass (or bottle, who's counting?) of Austrailian Shiraz followed with chocolates and Port. But then I started thinking about chicken and cheese enchiladas with Margharettas and hot fudge sundays...and green chile stew and trifle...roast turkey, stuffing and black forest cake...and...

How about my last week of meals? :lol:
