I was recently having discussion with an old friend when the topic of what our last meal would be came up. Believe me, for a foodie this is a discussion that can be quite passionate, completely irrelevant to the fact that it is my last meal and why it is my last meal…none of that even crossed my mine, I went straight into planning and debating it. And then it kind of stuck with me for several days after that initial discussion so course I decided to turn it into a blog post!
Then I thought it would be fun to task my old pal Sean of It’s Not Art to do an illustration of the content of my last meal. Sean is responsible for my blog header, all my badges and several other illustrations that I have had in posts on Misadventures with Andi.
Somehow it felt that by having an illustration somehow it was laminating it, making it permanent. Hope I don’t I pull a “Ross” and regret it! (Reference to this Friends episode…sorry!)
So without further ado, here is my last meal (don’t worry about how or why it is my last meal, I’m not!):
- scallop dumpling dim sum (if I could be specific I would say from Yank Sing)
- tuna sashimi
- dungeoness crab (pre-cracked for me so all I have to do is pull out the meat!)
- a glass of champagne
My main meal:
- southern fried chicken and a biscuit
- a few slices of rare filet mignon
- served with mash potatoes and brown gravy
- a glass of pinot noir
- a boston cream pie cupcake
- a devil’s food and cream cheese frosting cupcake
- a box of junior mints
I was surprised when I looked over the list and realized there was so much “American” food on it. For a world traveler like me I was shocked. I guess there is something to that saying that you always go back to your roots. That because I have explored so much and will continue to do so, tasting and experiencing new foods all along the way, that when I am ready for this last meal of my life that I want it to be of home. It is a puzzler for me!
Want to play along with me? What would your last meal look like?
