Last Meal Thu, 10/9/03 10:11 AM (permalink)
A friend of mine recently told me about a website that lists the final meal requests of inmates on Texas's death row. Although I thought this to be extremely morbid, I looked it up and found it quite interesting. The politics of capital punishment aside, I thought it would be interesting to start a thread asking roadfooders what their request would be. Assume any establishment in the country, or the world for that matter, could fill your order. Pick as many as you like. I myself am still trying to come up with mine, but I'll get there eventually. Have fun!!

    that is an interesting website. It seemed like the number one choice was cheeseburgers.

    I suppose if I had to make the choice, assuming I could eat, I would opt for my ultimate comfort meal:

    meatloaf
    mashed potatoes with gravy
    fresh green beans with new potatoes
    cornbread
    blackberry cobbler
    ice tea

        I must admit, one's ability to consume anything would probably be limited. Thankfully this is just an imaginary scenario for all of us. I hope!

          It sounds like many of them were trying to kill themselves by overeating.

            After just reading "The Client" by John Grisham, I really find it hard to answer, BUT, I think it would have to been surf/turf/baked potato with butter sour cream, and a tall sweet tea. Brought in from the outside of course. I wouldn't want any prison "chef" near it!

                I might opt for a bunch of food I hate, just to make my imminent demise not seem so bad...

                But, assuming I wanted to enjoy myself:

                * A big plate of spaghetti and tomato sauce
                * A piece of steak
                * Italian bread and butter
                * A variety of cheeses, including chedder
                * A variety of chocolate, pies and donuts for dessert
                * Welch's grape soda.

                I hope they're not putting me in the chair, because the resulting explosion might take out a few additional people.

                  Easily a seafood and BBQ fest! Start out with 2-3 dozen Little Neck Clams Ice Cold on the Half-Shell followed Maryland Blue Claw Crabs perfectly steamed in copious amounts of beer and Old Bay. After the appetizers are done a huge rack of dry rub BBQ Baby-Backs, Corn on the cob and good ole Southern Biscuits. During this entire final gastronomic feat Oyster and Pepper Vodka Shooters and large amounts of my favorite pale lager! Dessert would consist of premium roast coffees with liberal shots of Sambuca and Amaretto liquers.

                    May I ask what oyster and pepper vodka shooters are? Sorry, I don't get out much anymore!

                      Fresh ice cold chucked Oyster served in a small brandy sifter with a shot (or two) of chilled Absolute Pepper Vodka and dash of lemon, cocktail or hot sauce. A must try!

                        Has anyone noticed that the ads on this thread are for Gorillas and Dads? What does this say about people condemned on capital charges

                        My last meal would be as follows

                        West Indies Salad (with claw meat, not lump)
                        Butter Lettuce, grapefruit and Avacado Salad from Joes in Livonia, LA
                        Charbroiled Oysters from Dragos in Metairie, LA
                        Trout Bacquet from Eddie's on Law St. in New Orleans
                        My Mama's Squash Casserole
                        Pecan Pie from Lea's in Lecompte, LA
                        Peach Cobbler made by me
                        Strong, unsweetened ice tea
                        Community Dark Roast w/whole cream from Mauthe's Dairy in Folsom, LA

                        With all of the caffeine, they may have to up the juice in order to put me down

                        Hopefully, when I get caught I will be "Angola Bound" (apologies to the Neville Bros.) because otherwise I might have some trouble with this menu.

                                There's a variation that I used last Labor Day and will repeat for Christmas taking Fresh Chucked Oysters and allowing them to marinate for at least 60 minutes in a container of Pepper Vodka. Clean the oyster shells and return the marinated (now drunk) Oysters back to their shells for presentation. Prepare the reassembled oysters with lemon and a dash of cocktail sauce. Right before serving take some more pepper vodka and drizzle it over the shells. Serve Ice Cold; like a rich man's Jell-O shots! Amazing.

                                  Well now I'm thinking of how I might bypass shucking them. Only myself and a few select friends will be dining on these incredible sounding morsels. My husband can't stand them so trying to get him to shuck me a few dozen might be a difficult task. I'll come up with something, starting out with a good fresh pint of locally shucked. Hell, maybe I'll buy some of those little jell-o shot cups, add oysters as you have described and pass a tray! We have many oyster roasts a year, once the oysters have slightly broken free, watch out I'll shuck for hours!

                                    After some serious thought and prolonged drooling , I think the creator of this debacle has come up with his last meal request.
                                    - Liver pate
                                    - Lobster Bisque
                                    - Caesar Salad
                                    - Bacon wrapped Filet Mignon with Sauce Bernaise
                                    - Baked potato stuffed with everything but the kitchen sink
                                    - Steamed asparagus
                                    - a quart of Butter-Pecan ice cream

                                    I'd be in Heaven before I even got there. (or maybe...)

                                        What's a turbo dog?

                                        It could be a description of my bosses's Jack Russell Terrier who "works" with us daily. That dog can spin itself into a frenzy like a top in a twister. He sometimes falls over.

                                          Lone Star, That's exactly what happens when you have consumed one too many Turbo Dogs.......you'll spin in a frenzy then fall over. It's a pretty awesome beer brewed in Abita Springs, LA, and from what I understand, our Raconteur du Jour, noneother than our beloved Mayhaw Man had something to do with the recipe, having been brewmaster at the above forementioned.

It's a pretty awesome beer brewed in Abita Springs, LA, and from what I understand, our Raconteur du Jour, noneother than our beloved Mayhaw Man had something to do with the recipe, having been brewmaster at the above forementioned.


                                            You know, my friends Geoff and Marcy Larsen run a pretty tight ship themselves up there in Alaska (and Seattle). They started about the same exact time as Abita and we grew together for quite a while. Alaskan Amber is one real pleasure in a world full of overpriced and overrated malt beverages.

                                            Turbodog is best described as a light bodied dark beer that is mot very aggressively hopped, but because of dry hopping (hops added to the fermenter when the beer is cold rather than to the kettle when the beer is hot) it has a nice crisp bitterness in the finish. A nice beer. Great with seafood.

                                            I have nothing to do with the brewery at this point, neither does anyone else who helped start it and run it for years, but I am still proud of my work and do still get some pleasure out of seeing Em wave them around on TV every night. In case anyone ever wonders about that, he started doing that on his own. The promotional deal that runs at the end of the show is something that was worked out later. He really does like the stuff. Last night he boiled some shrimp in beer instead of crab boil and of course, he used Abita Amber. (which, incidentally, is very similar to Alaskan Amber, just a tad more on the malty sweet side.

                                              Mayhaw, when we're not drinkin "swill beer" which I hate, but in cans suitable for the boat or the camper, our beer of choice is Alaskan Amber. But I must admit, I do love a cold Turbo Dog!!

                                                  As to oyster shooters I learned of these back in July while in Annapolis, Md. I love these! I've only had one with vodka but next time I get to Annapolis you can bet that I'm going to try the pepper vodka oyster shooter! Boy oh boy, I can't wait until 10/27 to get there.
