The Last Meal

Have you ever thought about what it would be like to know that the thing on your plate, you know, the unknown blob that you are forcing your children to eat (or wait is that just me), is the last thing that will pass through your lips and down your throat hole ever?

I know this sounds random, but I was reading up on some blog post ideas/prompts and this is one of the ones that popped up, and I thought it would be interesting to say the least, or a least a good conversation starter.

I've been contemplating this all day.  There are just so many different foods I love that would have a very deserving place in my stomach if it was the last thing to be there.... So I asked a few of my co-workers what their take on it would be.

Here is a list of a few things they would eat:

1.  Chicken Alfredo

2.  Steak

3.  Nachos

4.  Chicken Fried Steak

5.  Salad

6.  Mongolian Noodles

7.  Country Fried Steak

While those are all some great ideas, I'm not sure that I would choose those for the last thing I would ever taste.  So I did a little research on inmates and their last meals.  According to The Atlantic Wire, the average calorie count on a last meal is 2,756 calories.  That is a massive number.  They also reported that about 80% of the 247 death row inmates studied ordered meat and two-thirds of them ordered something fried. 

So what would I choose if I was eating my last meal?

I think that I would choose Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta, with Cheesy Garlic Bread, a salad with that Italian dressing from Olive Garden, and probably Creme Brulee for dessert.  I think also a side of extra crispy bacon.

Ask me in another week and it will probably change... I am forever changing my mind about things, so who knows... Maybe next week it would be pizza or nachos, or chicken curry... who knows.  What I do know, is that whatever my final meal was, if I knew it was my final meal, I would make sure I killed it.  There would be no survivors left on my plate.

So what would you choose for your last meal?



  1. Ok here goes. Last meal! I'm like you my mood changes everyday and only who knows what I would want for the last meal. Think it would be chocolate for desert. Maybe just skip the meal and eat the entire box of chocolate, but only if it is from Godiva or the ones we got from Costco. Might get sick, but at that point who realy cares. Love ya Baby Girl :) Mom

  2. My absolute favorite food is pasta... I'm a huge fan of spaghetti, so I'd have to go with that as my last meal. But not just any spaghetti... really really good spaghetti, with made from scratch tomato sauce, with fresh garlic, basil, oregano and those perfectly seasoned meatballs. I would like to have it sprinkled with fresh Parmesan... along side a salad from Olive Garden, and their bread sticks with Alfredo Sauce. Also To drink, I'd want a bottle of sparkling white grape juice... and for dessert, I'd take a a bowl of perfectly ripe, sweet strawberries with freshly whipped cream :) Maybe some chocolate? But only if it was Godiva or Ritter Sport. Or Cadbury with biscuits.

  3. Nice to know if the entire office staff was going to be executed, we could all get our last meals at the Old Country Buffet. Makes it so much more convenient.

    For the record, I was nachos. They are, after all, the perfect food. And if you don't think so, maybe you haven't had the right nachos.
