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.

I think I would choose a couple of foot long coneys, West Virginia style: chili, slaw, mustard, onions.
I'm in agreement with Jaques. There is nothing better than bread and butter. I wouldn't mind a steak to go with it or about 5 pounds of cold, boiled shrimp.
5 lbs of shrimp is a lot. I have eaten a 2 lb. bag by myself before. And there was this crawfish boil in Corpus Christi some years back where even my daughter probably ate close to 2 lbs. of seafood. Her mother and I might have been knocking on the door of 5.

I go to the Oriental Super Buffet on Saturdays not because it's particularly good but because it's 1.99 for kids on Saturday. One of the few places left where I can spend under $20. I've got a whole list of kids eat free or reduced spots.

I took my kids to a Brazilian churrasco place a while back. They packed their bellies as full as they could possibly get. You wouldn't think a 5 and an 8 year old could eat that many pieces of meat but they did justice to the concept of churrasco.
