Last Meal Tells All

I found this webpage, because a post on The Nest for a free book that foodies would love. As I consider myself a foodie, and I like free stuff, I handed over my info in hopes that a free book will arrive at my house. Upon its arrival and it being read, I'll post a review; don't worry.

Any who, the author is a chef and pretty well known and has his own show, although I have never seen it. TIVO will be utilized tonight so that I may better acquaint myself. The point is coming, I promise. If you venture to read any of those links up there, you will see a section where he discusses what good food really is. In fact, he compares it to the "If you were on death row, what would you want your last meal to be?" game. We've all played. If you haven't, I am not sure why you are reading my blog and what is wrong with you? But he says that the last meals are very rarely, even in 5 star chefs, some elaborate gourmet meal. It is ultimately the most comforting food item. Or for girls, the FATTENING food item that you would only eat with the knowledge that the calories or effect on the hips will not better because, hello, you are going to be dead!

This rant leads to this...good food is oh so good. But it isn't what heals us or often what we truly splurge on.

My last meal:
a whole pepperoni, pineapple, banana pepper pizza (is it bad that I sing the Gwen Stefani song in my head to spell banana correctly??)
extra sauce on the side
garlic cheesy bread
alfredo sauce
Dairy Queen banana split with no pineapple, extra strawberry sauce
bottle of Chianti

This would be my last meal according to TODAY. It may change. I now encourage you to respond with your own choices.

French Onion soup from M&E's (cuz your're gonna shit yourself anyway)
20 Wild Wings from BW3
A Lg 3-way from Skyline
Pint of Graeter's Coc Rasp Chunk
12 pack of Diet Coke, loaded with Capt Morgan's
By the time I ate all of that, I would be glad I was on death's door..

A salad of field greens with toasted pecans, blue cheese, and vinaigrette. Freshly baked sour dough bread slathered in butter. The most perfectly cooked medium filet mignon with a side of broccoli and some bearnaise sauce. A salt licked baked potato with butter, sour cream, cheddar, bacon, and green onions. A glass of chilled, sauvignon blanc. For dessert, hazelnut bread pudding with a cappucino. I couldn't think of a better way to go down.
