The oil it fried cannot have been changed in a month.

About an hour break with a few Miller High Lifes.

The bone marrow, with oxtail marmalade from Blue Ribbon. With a rose wine.

Quesadillas made with El Milagro corn tortillias, Chihuahua cheese, and Herdez salsa. A Bohimia.

"Boudin" of Lake Erie Walleye Pike, Wilted Arrowleaf Spinach and Preserved Lemon. White wine.

Pataka Shak (curried potato) in north west India, with some Bangers. A Kingfisher and a pint of Black.

Shrimp and Grits made by Monique King. Another beer.

Any of the desserts from Alinea.

An espresso and a rum on the rock.

I've thought about this so many times and I still can't think of what my last meal would be. I think it's because I don't really have a favourite food, and the food I ate growing up was rather eclectic.

I think I'd choose root beer as my beverage, though, and Old Dutch Bar-B-Q potato chips as my snack.

Actually, that could probably be my whole meal, plus some roasted peanuts in the shell.

Whew! And I thought I might not get to eat anything for my last meal!

You know that expression, "Life is uncertain, eat dessert first"?

The one and only time I went to a party where the desserts were set out at the same time as the meal (buffet style catering, you know what I mean), I ate my dessert first 'cause the hot food looked icky.

And we ended up having to leave before the meal! Yay! It was perfect!

So my advice is, don't wait till you're about to pop your clogs. Eat it all. Eat it all NOW. :laugh:

Plain and simple for me....

 

Fish Fry AKA Fish and Chips w/accompaniments.

 

Plain NY Cheesecake

I'm pretty expert at both of those. If you are about to die or go to prison or be banished to Kansas, let me know and I will come cook for you

No offense, Shelby. Just picked it because it's landlocked. A real fish-fry to me means pulled right out of the ocean and into the fryer
