It was nice knowing you all... Last meal?

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 

So, with the impending Rapture coming up tomorrow, I wanted to say that it's really been a pleasure knowing you non-heathens in the short time I've been here. wink.gif

 

So, in honor of the great purging, here's the question of the day:

 

What would your final meal be?

 

For me, I'd have to go back to my childhood and have a really yummy, starchy meal.  A well-cooked steak with a bit of A1 (don't judge me), and a soft, warm roll smothered with butter, creamy mashed potatoes and corn.

 

Nummy.

Dim Sum marathon

post #3 of 31

Tricky one. Any restrictions?

 

Umm, this is looking a bit extravagant so far. All small portions obviously:

 

Whitstable native (flat) oyster

Seared scallop, orange zest butter, shaved Gotland truffle, fresh & pickled radish

English green asparagus, foie gras, slow-cooked egg, grape gel

Baked cod, pea shoot 'bubble and squeak', wild garlic, fresh cucumber, pernod sauce

Osso bucco, risotto alla Milanese, bone marrow, gremolata

Waygu short rib, ceps, bacon nibs, lightly pickled baby carrots, dried berries

English & French cheeses

 

Dessert I'm not yet decided on but it would definitely feature liquorice and salted caramel

 

------

 

 

This is all rather impractical but seriously, I'd want my last meal to be a compendium of all of the most amazing things I could imagine or at least want to have eaten before things come to a conclusion.

Chopped liver with plenty of schmaltz

Pork rillettes with REAL French baguette

My grandmother's cinnamon rolls

lots of fresh fruit salad

A huge bowl of popcorn with butter

 

Nice to dream, but the world will be here tomorrow!

An orgy of Chinese BBQ from soy chicken, roast duck, BBQ and roast pork.

 

And the best thing is if Camping ends up being wrong, BBQ pork makes great fried rice next day :D

I'd have to stop by Mezzalunas for some Chopped Liver. Add a little brandy and fresh ground pink peppercorn when her back was turned.

Then meet up with Patch for the Dim Sum Marathon.

 

Oh, taking gentle care of a stolen cinnamon roll from Mezza's Grandmother for the morning. In case I'm the only one left.

as long as nothing has to match or flow i would have(small portion plates of):

 

~ freezer cold grey goose vodka, and with the rapture coming and not having to worry about liver problems...very cold, raw oysters from the pnw with fresh  

    horseradish and hot sauce

~ escargot with extra garlic butter and really good bread to mop it all up 

~ west indian conch roti with kachula and homemade mango chutney

~ pea and potato samosas

~ grilled just caught caribbean lobster with melted butter

~ grilled 'olathe' sweet corn ditto with the butter, s&p

~ six different flavor 'tasters' of gelato; hazelnut, espresso, mint, blackberry,lemon,pistachio

~ lots and lots of very cold veuve clicquot

Send me my rapture today...Praise the Lord & Hallelujah!

(of course, people to share it with, goes without saying)....would we have to say grace?

So what happened?????

 

Crap!! I'm still here!!! I kinda got on board with CBelgium.

 

With a cloudy head I had to drive out to the airport  very early this morning to pick someone up.

 

After going through the toll booths and driving by the cabbies, it had appeared that we had been taken over.

 

eek.gifOMG! I didn't just say that!!! Something has happened to me.

Sundaymorning in Europe, nearly noon... Hallelujah! I must be in heaven right now, moderate temperature and all. I was more expecting to wake up in a hot hell, browsing my own curriculum when I was vitae.

Looks very similar to what I had when I was alive except my cellar is now full of empty beer bottles.

post #17 of 31

okay all, 

so now that we're clearly still here, should we have a 'i survived the rapture' dinner? (sure someone will come up with a t shirt soon). since i was in a rapture dinner panic, i neglected to include any vegetables, fruits or cheese, which i love dearly...being a bit fuzzy from all the bubbles this morning, spicy bloody marys have top billing.....grilled asparagus, peppers,baby zuc and squash, onions and eggplant with cabernet balsamic redux, wonderful heirloom tomatoes with fresh mozzarella, basil and high end evoo. blackberries, figs, pears, beausault,gorgonzola, goat cheese, fresh baguettes and butter, fig jam...actually am having a little dinner party tonight to celebrate the blessed event that we are all still here and hopefully for a very long time!.....i must be in heaven....there is no snow...finally!! and a bluebird morning to boot.... glad to know that all you heathens are still here...cheers!!

A hot smoked bacon (marinated in sweet soy sauce) sandwich with slightly burnt onion and some of my Nanna's plum sauce.

 

Followed by cold LEMON DELICIOUS PUDDING and vanilla ice cream.

 

Followed by a butterscotch schnapps.

I think the Rapture dodged us here.

 

But, if it were to happen, I'd be at brownedoff's place - YUM!

 

But, if there weren't enough seats, I'd plan a meal at the beach at sunset.

BBQ.

Chilli prawns on mesculin with champagne - the real stuff

Fillet Mignon well aged and well seasoned rare with bbq potato and onion slices, served with soured cream- deep red Burgundy well aged wine

Plump macerated strawberries with lashings of chantilly cream

Cheese and fruit platter, salted crackers, good tawny port

Coffee and rum truffles

A nice bit of medium-rare spinalis, topped with a quarter-inch slab of seared foie gras.  Haricots verts cooked with walnuts in garlic butter.  Some sort of cheesy potato... perhaps a gratin with a crispy panko topping.  For dessert, a Bavarian cheesecake .

I'd go with a paella valenciana I had once in a small restaurant while living in Valencia, Spain. Chicken, snails, rabbit, nice and salty.

I think I would finally go back to McDonald's (the devil) or some other crappy food chain that I would never go to, and eat one of everything!!!

 

If not that, then I will get my grand mothers to have a cook off to produce the best schnitzel, sauerkraut, and spetzle!!!
