The Last Meal
If you were given the chance to choose your last meal, do you know what it would be? Personally, I’m not quite sure what my last meal would be. But, I definitely know what my last words would be immediately after finishing it … “That was to die for!” 😆
The meal, however, takes a little more thought for me. There are so many choices and variables that come into play, making it difficult to set anything in stone. What is my mood? What did I have the meal, or even the day, before? What is in season? However, it is the time of day the meal would be served that could possibly be the most important influence on my choices. So, I have prepared a possible menu, complete with the source for each dish, for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.
Chorizo & Eggs Scramble – my recipe
Potatoes & Pancakes – Eau’s Cafe ~ Santa Barbara, CA (Must include their special warm syrup & butter combo)
Fresh Squeezed Orange juice – made with Oranges from my in-law’s tree (No, I’m not sucking-up here)
A dozen Mini Doughnuts – Zelda’s Corner Deli ~ Venice Beach, CA
Cup of Clam Chowder – Gladstone’s ~ Malibu, CA (Oh heck, make it a bowl … this is my last meal!)
The Cobb Club Sandwhich – The Daily Grill ~ any location
French Fries (well done) – Thrasher’s ~ Rehoboth Beach, DE (Yes, they are that good!)
Vanilla Bean Milk Shake – Cold Stones ~ Culver City, CA (Not all locations carry the V-bean)
Chocolate Chip Cookies – my wife’s recipe (Again, not sucking-up)
House Salad with Remoulade Dressing – Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse ~ Las Vegas, NV (The one on Paradise Road)
Miso Black Cod – Ray’s Boathouse ~ Seattle, WA
Steak Tar Tar – Delmonico’s ~ Las Vegas, NV
Sauteed Asparagus – Kaya Sushi ~ Marina Del Rey, CA
Potato Kugel – my Mom’s recipe
2001 Silver Oak Cabernet ~ Napa Valley, CA (Should be just about perfectly aged. The full bottle, please!)
Chocolate Eclair – Chez Carette ~ Paris, France
Like I said, these choices could change on a whim. I might want to substitute my mother-in-laws Korean BBQ for the Tar Tar, a Marty’s (West LA, CA) double chili-cheese burger (extra chili, grilled onions) in place of the club, or my Mom’s matzah brie might be the call instead of the pancakes. I guess I’m just fickle that way.
So … what would your last “to die for” meal be?
