Before I Go to the Light, Can I Stop for a Bite?
A few weeks ago, posts on the Guidelive Eats blog and the D Magazine SideDish blog got our stomachs rumbling and our neurons firing over the fascinating (and somewhat macabre) question of what we would eat at our last meal on Earth.
Being the detail-oriented and culinarily discerning girls that we are, it took more than a little while for us to whittle down our absolute and final menus for our absolute and final meals. A decision such as this requires careful thought.
But what delicious consideration it was! After much soul searching, we finally settled on two of the most mouthwatering - and different - menus you may ever encounter. Read on below (try to keep the drooling to a minimum) for our respective Last Meals, and please let us know what your final menus would include as well. We can't wait to hear all about it!
