We’re at Week 24 of the 52-Week blog challenge and this week’s topic is all about my last meal. No, I’m not heading for the Great Buffet in the Sky anytime soon (I hope!), but it is interesting to think about what I’d want to eat if I were.
- First off, I’m going to make a prediction that about 95% of the authors in this blog challenge are going to say we’d want chocolate to be part of our meal.
Yeah, it’s on my list, too. But not just any old chocolate…oh no! It’s got to be a sinfully rich, decadent dark chocolate. None of that wimpy milk chocolate stuff for this romance author!
I’m thinking about a luscious, creamy, dark chocolate ganache torte with a chocolate cookie crust…<drools, wipes lips>…
Annddd, just like that, I’ve gained five pounds. Oh well, we’re talking about my last meal, so who cares if my jeans fit when I go?
- If this were truly my last meal, I’d certainly want to wash it down with wine.
I like a sweet white wine, such as Moscato, or a sweet blush wine like White Zinfandel. One of my favorite things is a wine that comes from the vineyard of a small abbey in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains outside Canon City, Colorado. I discovered this wine and fell in love with it when I lived in the area. It’s a sweet riesling. If I’m never going to be able to indulge again, I’d want it to be one of the last things I taste.
Okay, now we’ve come to the tough part of this final meal. For the main course, I’d want to taste my mom’s home cooking one last time, but she’s been gone for more than four years now. Even though I have all her handwritten recipes, if you’ve ever tried to recreate a favorite dish of your mom’s, you know it NEVER tastes the same no matter how closely you follow the recipe. Must be that secret ingredient – Mom’s love – that makes it taste so good.
So, since Mom’s meals are off the table, so to speak, I’d settle for a juicy filet mignon.
Sizzling hot off the grill.
Dusted with yummy seasonings.
Cooked medium well (I don’t want my steak mooing, thanks).
Horseradish on the side, please. Oh, and the asparagus you see in the photo will do nicely, as well.
Pair the whole shebang with the Bleu Cheese Chopped Salad from Outback Steakhouse and I’d die a happy woman. Well – in a manner of speaking – because we’ve already established that I’d be dying so there’s not much to be happy about.
In any case, there you have it – the Last Meal I hope not to consume for a very long time. Which favorite foods would you want to indulge in if you had to pick a last meal? Leave a comment and let me know!
And, don’t forget to drop by the other authors in the blog hop to see if my chocolate prediction is correct:
