Poetry aside, we seem to get along better if we're not discussing politics.

What would be your last meal if you could order?

My last meal:

Fresh tomatoes from the garden sprinkled with sea salt

Fresh butterbeans from the garden with homemade canned
chili sauce (tomatoes, onions, peppers, sugar and spices)

Lobster with clarified butter and lemon

I think I would fast.... less clean-up.

RE: Last Meal

I would like to have my first meal over again and not have to worry about the clean up. I have no idea what was in in it but boy did I GROW, the receptacle it came in has fascinated me ever since.

RE: Last Meal

Oh, I'm so sorry I asked.


RE: Last Meal

That'll learn ya...

A Thanksgiving style dinner would do....but I might not be too hungry.

RE: Last Meal

As long as I don't survive to suffer the consequences of this last meal...

Dessert: the world's best vanilla ice cream with sauce made with the best blueberries grown or harvested. Triple helping, please.

Salad of mixed lettuces, heavy on butterhead and Batavian lettuces, "salted" with mixed nuts and chopped dried fruit and drizzled with walnut/raspberry vinegrette followed by fresh-ground black pepper and feta cheese. Side dish of Diva cucumbers in dilled sour cream and another side dish with wedges of the finest flavored tomatoes lightly salted with Kosher type and a dash of Meyer lemon juice as needed.

Buffet of Indian dishes, rich in curries, vegetables and nan as a transition to:

New England lobster, freshly caught, boiled in sea water, and served with drawn butter and creamy mashed potatoes and fine French peasant bread to sop up the drippings.

RE: Last Meal

I'd start off with a course of really fresh Ahi tuna sushi slices, paper thin, with ginger/sesame dipping sauce.

Then head over to Marshall's table for a salad, but I'd go for Maytag blue cheese crumbles and toasted almond bits, with a vinaigrette made with ridiculously top quality olive oil and well-aged Italian vinegar, the kind of stuff the wine makers keep a small cask of down in the cellar - not balsamic, just concentrated red wine.

I'd even hang around for a good curry*. For your Diva cucumber salad, might I suggest a few leaves of french tarragon?

In the '52 hierarchy of tasty crustaceans, lobster has been edged out, by a nose, with the wild caught freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii because when you grill it, more surface area for the lemon butter baste.

I'll take a hot, freshly baked loaf of sour dough to soak up the juice.

For desert, it would be maple ice cream - made with real maple sugar - with a side of goose berry pie. Maybe with a pitcher of blueberry syrup just in case.

*One of the young Miss '52ers is currently 'involved' with a guy whose culinary passion is curries. We had one last week - lamb - when he was introduced to the rest of the family. I can already see where we'll be congregating for future Thanksgivings......

RE: Last Meal

Thanks for the holiday invite, David. And the culinary suggestions and enhancements of my last meal. I was going to go with an old-fashioned New England clam bake, including a 2-4-pound lobster imbedded among the other crustaceans...

RE: Last Meal

I have fond memories of certain foods...

My dad's mom: fried okra and black-eyed peas.
My mom's mom: potato leek soup with homemade rolls and butter.
My dad: homemade peach ice cream.
My mom: wild rice stuffing with sausage & clams & a whole lot of cream sherry.


RE: Last Meal

Chicken & Dressing
Home Canned Green Beans cooked 5 hours w/ham hock
Deviled Eggs
Mashed Potatoes w/stick of butter
Homemade Yeast Rolls
Ice Tea w/lemon

Homemade Banana Pudding

Nothing fancy for me...I was raised on a farm.

RE: Last Meal

My mother made her own root beer and bottled it and we lived in a city!

RE: Last Meal

To start with:

She-crab soup, which I've come to adore since moving to Charleston.

To Marshall's for a salad. Heirloom tomatoes with fresh basil, as well.

Main course: seafood! Probably salmon with fresh herbs.

A side dish from India.

The best red wine from France: a St. Emilion?

for dessert: either pumpkin pie or old fashioned strawberry shortcake.

RE: Last Meal

A nice 3 pound Maine lobster, a 20 oz prime rib cooked med rare, corn on the cob, mashed potatos, garden salad, and strawberry cheesecake for desert. :-)

Nothing extravagant. :-)
