If you had to pick, what would your last meal on earth be?
You’ve been asked this before, right? It’s a great question; a perfect way to get to know someone, casual but substantive, intimate, playful, thought provoking, soulful. The intent of the Last Meal question isn’t to be morbid. On the contrary! It’s about happy moments, reliving the best in life, and has no right or wrong answer. I find the stories and reasons behind other people’s choices fascinating.
My Last Meal choices have changed dramatically throughout my life. When I was a kid I would have said Spaghetti-Os. When I was a teenager I would have said pizza and Dr. Pepper. When I was in college I would have said a burrito. But now that I am older, have traveled this country back and forth, and developed a more refined taste and appreciation for food, I think I now have a pretty great answer to this question. Here are my answers for every meal of the day:
Honorable Mentions – If I had any room left or reason to squeeze in anything else my picks would go to the Hummus and Pita from Greek Gyros and Pastry in Missoula, Montana and the Chicago Mix Popcorn from Garrett’s Popcorn Shop in Chicago, Illinois.
What are your picks? Would you be able to make a list or is the decision too tough?
