You need to think about this one

I just read an article about Jacques Pepin (google him if you don't know him). He was asked what his favourite LAST meal would be.

Bread and butter was his answer (being French, no doubt it was a fresh baguette and freshly churned butter).

Got me thinking about that. We all have so many favourite "go to" foods, I really found it difficult to choose. Steak? maybe. Fish and chips? maybe. Hakka "anything"? maybe.

I finally decided what my fav meal would be. Being of Ukrainian heritage, I picked
Food Ingredient Cuisine Dish Staple food


recipe at post 10 below

I grew up on Mom's recipe and when I was old enough, got the recipe while watching her make it. After all, it was ALL stored in her head and I was lucky enough to get it from her before she passed.

Now, my wife and I make it when cabbage is in season (usually just as winter is starting--January or so) as the heads that are usually available are too small to consider. I usually get two JUMBO size heads which makes enough for a roaster-size pan. Solely vegetarian version (no meat of any kind) is the way I was taught and the way it shall remain.

The pic above is not mine BUT looks like mine is why I include it.

Think about the meal you would have as your LAST meal and let us know.

What kind of veggies go into it?
onions and dill. Tomato juice mixed with water for primary then just tomato juice on top.

@Roll_Bones plain old long-grain rice/not parboiled or any flavoured kind (not basmati, etc). I'll dig out the recipe one of these days to oblige 馃榿

I've seen some recipes that use tomato sauce (too thick IMO) and even.....KETCHUP :eek:

Ya, 5lb? Boy, I'm of an age now I wish they would sell me the "childrens special" just because it's smaller.

Buffets? fuggedaboudit. I will NEVER get my money's worth at those places anymore. And those "all you can eat" specials some restaurants feature. Ahh, no.
