Rapture Food - your last day on earth

Recommended Posts

I would eat everything listed above, everything that will be listed below, plus everything listed in this "Last Meal" thread since it's more or less the same topic, anyway.

Plus I'd add some Old Dutch Bar-B-Q, Sour Cream and Green Onion Rip-L, and Nacho Cheese and Zesty Taco tortilla chips. And root beer.

So what would you eat if the world were ending tomorrow?

The world is not ending tomorrow. Camping has said the world won't end until August. Saturday is the Rapture. Which means, for the rest of us, raiding the fridges of the Raptured! Hmm, on second thought, probably all they'll leave behind is three-bean casserole and Spam.

That's just not very nice.

Believe or no, (I don't) that is just the stereotyping that has this country in such a mess. I am embarrassed for such a thing. You should rethink your wording in case you didn't mean it so, which is easy to do.

If it were my last day.....I want to try everything I never had the chance to. Plus, there must be Uni, Salmon eggs and sashime, Pho, Perfectly rare steak and Icy cold pure fresh water with lemon. (An egg yolk thrown into the mix somewhere wouldn't hurt my feelings at all!)

Just got back from Balthazar, and I want what the couple at the next table was having, which I think was pitched as something like "seafood salad for two," consisting of two stacked trays, oysters on the half shell over ice on the bottom, a heap of cold shrimp, clams, mussels, crab claws, lobster, and probably a few other items on the top tray.

I was going to post a picture of my breakroom table, but forgot my camera link-y cord thingy ( :blink:), but the co-workers have brought in a cake decorated with cracked lines like an earthquake hit it frosted with "Happy Pre-Rapture Day," a whole slough of Ho-Hos and Ding Dongs and Chocolate Filled Twinkies, some great tortilla chips and cheesy dip, cheese cake and the like. Someone's bringing in deviled eggs at lunch.

The funniest part of all of this is that we as a whole have been trying to eat better, encouraging each other, and bringing in good snacks. I think we just really latched onto an idea to bring in stuff we've been avoiding for 5 1/2 months!

just reading through the posts, on my way to chime in with my own rapture meal, and here it is. plats de mer is what i call it, but if balthazar calls it seafood salad, fine by me. i'll take a triple-decker, since it's the last one....isn't it?

Peter the Eater has it right. I will assume that the martinis are made with gin. Mine is in the freezer.

I was in Montreal some years ago and ate at Au Pied de Cochon. Their claim to fame is pork & foie gras frenzy. So for my rapture meal, I will have one of everything on their menu, chased down by copious amounts of red wine. For starters, though, I'll have a giant raw seafood & sashimi platter, filled mostly with uni, toro, and mackerel.

I would take the family To Fair Lawn's Picnic, start with the BLT salad,heirloom tomatos,double smoked bacon...work my way to the lobster roll, dabble in the morels risotto and pray there is a cheese infused tart for dessert - ohh wait... that is what I am doing tonight!

See you at 7:30 Christine!

Wherever I can find sweetbreads on the menu that night..... currently that would make it The Rieger Hotel Grille and Exchange here in KC. The sweetbread and bacon terrine.......

As others have mentioned, I'd have an appetizer of deviled eggs (with caviar, of course) and a dessert of devil's food cake (with a shot of Hot Damn schnapps on the side). My entree? Lobster fra diavolo, of course.

As you might guess, come August I'll be headed for the nether world, specifically the sixth circle of Hell. (Heresy trumps gluttony.) You can test yourself here.

If I were having a non-themed meal, I'd want three perfect sandwiches of bacon, goat cheese, and heirloom tomato on sourdough toast, followed by two cups of coffee with cream, followed by a large bowl of peach ice cream with sliced peaches. All ingredients would be made, raised, or roasted in West Michigan.

It's a hard choice. My DH said he'd go for wall-to-wall Napoleons, but I think I'd pick Cheese Blintzes with really good sour cream.

Massive aged porterhouse grilled medium-rare, french fries cooked in olive oil,small salad of perfect Boston lettuce, apple pie made by me, lots of champagne through dinner, vintage port after pie with Maytag blue.

The rest of the pie when I wake up in the morning.

Well, I can tell you what it turned out to be--fried grits, beer-battered crepes with gruyere and fried onions, then mississippi mud pie for dessert. At least, it feels like the last meal I will eat!

Now *you,* I understand.

At 3:42 Chicago time, I'm doing 'leftover' soup, with no sense of deprivation whatever: mushrooms, asparagus, new red potatoes, diced Roma tomatoes, the last of the most recent roast chicken (cut up), wilted-down spinach and salad greens, plus cooked penne rigate and chicken stock. The appetizer was hummus on good buttered toast, and the wine is a perfectly nice American non-oaked Chard. Still deciding what to do for dessert.

I dare to suggest, however, Alex, that the Almighty and Eternal has more mercy for us who cherish his culinary gifts than Rev. Whatsisname ever did, or will. You might just find yourself at the heavenly feast yet; save a l'il room.

:biggrin:

Ah, thank you. Perhaps instead I should have some angel food cake with divinity fudge for dessert tonight. (And please see my PM.)

Hmm...still here. On the upside on not getting my rapture food, my arteries will thank me in the morning.

Darn, I guess that giant burger and homemade sausage I had for dinner will stay with me...my husband pointed out that maybe the Rapture DID happen, but we're all just sinners! Although I can't say I feel particularly pestilence-y yet...
