Topic #82: What do you want for your last meal?

Posted on

Oh yeah buddy, now THIS is a blog topic I’m ready for. I’m a huge fan of food. I’m not saying I’m literally huge myself but rather that my love of food is grand, ever-growing and total. Ok so here it goes…

First I want to start with a glass of Montepulciano red wine from the vineyard where my brother-in-law works (Spelt). It’s pure luck that I’m a total wine-o and  have access to the best wine I’ve ever tasted for free as he brings it home by the 5 liter bottle. God bless you Fabio. Then I’d like another glass to go with my cheese and fruit. Both will be in abundance and of a variance that’s staggering. Gorgonzola, brie, blue cheese, swiss, mozzarella (fresh, hard, smoked), fresh parmesan, cream cheese, stracchino, robiola, CHEDDAR (damn I want me some cheddar. Haven’t had it in over two years since they don’t sell it in my area), gouda, smoked gouda, and I’m sure I’m missing something supremely stinky and delicious….damn, this will have to do for il formaggio. The fruit? Cherries, strawberries, apples (green), grapes (every variety), pineapple, lychee, kiwi, watermelon, tangerines, cantaloupe, and cherries (I know, I love them THAT much).

At this point I’d need a serious pause….

Sushi, boatloads. Salmon with just a touch of lemon, garlic, soy sauce, and honey…more wine…Time for some BEEF! A crazy big New York strip, medium rare (I want to see a little blood. Not a lot, just enough to make me feel savage), seasoned simply with salt and pepper but with caramelized onions on top with about half a bottle of A-1 (I just love that stuff). A ridiculous baked potato, what restaurants would call “loaded”: cheese, sour cream, chives, bacon, onion, BUTTERRRRRRRRRR…..I knew this would happen, I’m so stinkin’ hungry. Some steamed carrots, zucchini, broccoli and cauliflower.

You know what? Maybe I want a great big cheese burger instead of a steak. One with cheese, pastrami, onions (I see an onion theme), heaps of mayo, horse-radish, lettuce, tomato on those big pieces of buttered grilled bread instead of a bun. Lord have mercy, yeah, gimme that.

…and a salad. What? I love salad.

Somewhere in there I’ve got to fit in my very own spaghetti and meatballs because it’s just that good. You understand that I’m basically drinking  a whole bottle of blood-red goodness over the course of this dinner, right? If you can even call it “dinner” this is like those meals you hear that kings used to have where they’d have to purge themselves just to keep stuffing their guts.

I’m not big on desserts but I am a sucker for strawberries and chocolate, mmmmmmmmm.

I’ll need a decent glass of limoncello in the end and a coffee so strong it’d wake the dead.

I’m sure I’ll be dreaming of food tonight considering my bedtime is a half hour from now. I’ll want to change this post a dozen times by the time tomorrow’s writing session comes along but I’ll leave it like this. Just know that really, I’d eat anything tasty.

Oh man! I knew it! Not even signed off and I realize I forgot all about my Mexican and Indian food selections.

I've got a lot to say. I guess that's why most people start a blog, right? They've got thoughts, ideas, gripes, whatever, that they feel they must share with the world. Kind of egotistical, no? I mean, who's really going to read this? Am I so interesting that I can hold your attention over the rest of the world wide web? Strange to think that it could be possible. If you've read this far, you should know a little 'about me' as this portion is titled. Ok so, I live in Central Italy with my husband and daughter. He's an Italian citizen, I'm an American citizen which makes our baby...doomed, as well has a dual citizen. The cultures do more than clash. They kick, bite, and beat the crap out of eachother. You have to have a very worldly outlook to marry someone from another country. People around the world are raised very differently from one another. What's perfectly normal in one area of the world is cause for major concern in another. I stand in front of the fan to cool off when it's August and the heat is insane and the humidity keeps you sticky 24 hours a day. My husband is convinced I've some sort of superhuman powers to not have caught some serious illness by doing this. Sound senseless, it is. Italians are full of ridiculous beliefs that hold no ground outside the land of make-believe and nut-cases. But who am I to tell anyone that the sayings of their great-great-great Aunt Maria are bullshit? So I just listen and nod. Well that brings you a bit up to speed on my current situation, yeah? Ok so, read me blog now kiddies. Toodaloo!

  1. I enjoyed the article perhaps a bit too much. Like the *coffee-strong enough to wake the dead* line, lol. Pretty original. Hope to read more.

    • Thank you so much! I had a good time writing it. I really do love food, probably more than a woman who wants to lose weight should *sigh* I’m trying to eat right and fit in exercise a few times a week to offset the days when I go hog-wild at the kitchen table.

  2. Nice theme! Love your posts!
    Keep up the good work!

    • Thank You! I’m thrilled that someone left a comment and that it was positive :o) I just started blogging and I’m having a lot of fun with it. Your comment is pretty strong motivation to keep at it. Again, thank you!
