Your Last Meal

If you knew that whatever you ate next would be your last meal, what would you want it to be?

It's funny--there's a fancy restaurant here locally that my family always goes to on Christmas Eve, and what I order there is pretty close to what I think my ideal "last meal" would be--with just a few tweaks to sauces, dressings, and sides, I think it would be the perfect last meal. 

First, a blue cheese creme brulee appetizer, spread over warm sourdough bread. I'd eat a whole order by myself. Then, a garden salad with more blue cheese, caramelized pecans, and raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Fresh squeezed strawberry lemonade to drink. Next, a medium rare steak with a sweet potato, and fresh fruit salad on the side. And heck, more bread and butter. And then, raspberry cobbler with homemade vanilla bean ice cream. 

I think this meal would also be my own "if you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life" answer. It's just good stuff. I find myself re-creating a simpler, less frilly version of this dinner often! If Justin wanted to cook a meal that would make me swoon, this would be it. 

That said, I also think that your "last meal" depends on who you're sharing it with--because let's face it, food tastes a whole lot better when you're eating it with people you love. 

 What about you guys?

  1. I think my last meal would be something along the lines of a meal Jon and I had at The Melting Pot for our first anniversary. Appetizer of bread and veggies with a delicious cheese sauce, entree of lobster, filet mignon, shrimp, crab, chicken, and sausage with a butter sauce and a garlic broth, and then dessert of different types of cakes, marshmallows and fruit dipped in an amaretto chocolate sauce. DELICIOUS! :) And it incorporates all of my favorite foods! :)

  2. I go back and forth between something humble but incredibly yummy like Sweet & Sour Meatballs and rice or BBQ Chicken Pizza and something much more fancy like sweet potato gnocchi or linguine carbonara.

    But regardless of the actual meal, my dessert would most definitely include a peanut-butter chocolate cheesecake with a giant glass of ice cold milk... Being fairly lactose-intolerant that's the kind of dessert that dreams are made of :)

  3. Oh man... toughie. I can't decide between the meal we had on our 5th anniversary: risotto, grilled fish and homemade pasta. Or a great draft beer and some killer wings with house made blue cheese.

    Your meal has me drooling... puddles. Blue cheese creme brule like substance on bread. Be still my heart.

  4. If it's a last meal, I would want Everlasting Gobstoppers.....
