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?
