Your last meal.

Postby S.O'Mara » Sun Feb 07, 2010 2:31 am UTC

What would you want for your last meal if you were being executed?

You can have as much of any food as you want.

I'm still deciding.........

Something that takes a really, really long time to make.

Hmm most likely a full spread of all my favorite japanese food items. Miso and Ebi Sunomono to start, followed by beef tataki and unagi, tekka, ebi, and hokkogai nigiri. Then into the hot items, ebi tempura, chicken yakitori, crispy deep fried gyoza, and a couple kinds of teriyaki. Finish things off with a nice cool zaru soba, with extra sweet sauce.

Mmm... man I gotta go get some japanese food soon now.

For our resident and visiting ghouls, or those who like to indulge in some light ghoulishness on occasion, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice keeps a record of what death row inmates request for their final meals.

As for me, I'd probably ask for some hummus and black olive dip from a lovely little place near Main and 14th, some fresh fruit (papaya, mango, cherries), and some good mint choccy chip ice cream. Ask me again in a year or two and I'll have a different answer, I'm sure.

Alternately (and rather morbidly), I could ask for a buttload of the things I'm most allergic to, hoping that I'll actually develop anaphylactic shock and die on my own schedule. Most likely, though, I'd just get sick. The legal system would be forced to hospitalise me for a while until I'm well enough to be executed. That would be a nice little touch of irony, I think. :wink:

That was exactly what I needed to get the creative juices flowing!

I would want breakfast. Waffles and maple syrup, sausage, hash-browns with eggs over-easy, orange juice to drink.

And a caramel oreo shake for desert. *sigh* Food is marvelous.

I'm making the following assumptions here:
- No alcohol
- No family/friends joining me
- Meal will be cooked by the Prison Catering and served within the prison

Given all the assumptions above, I'd have to go with a greasy breakfast as well. Eggs over-easy, ham, bacon, sausage, hash-browns, pancakes, buttered white toast, a fruit platter, maple syrup on the side, a large glass of orange juice, and a pot of coffee,

I would probably be too upset to eat. However, for the sake of listing my favorite foods:

Half a loaf of authentic San Francisco sourdough bread with salted butter. Homemade macaroni and cheese. Farfalle alfredo with grilled chicken and sundried tomatoes. Chicken korma with lots of naan and basmati rice. Chicken pot pie. Earl grey. Ripe strawberries, watermelon, and pineapple. Mint chocolate cookie ice cream.

Basically it would be a smorgasbord of all the food I'm not allowed to eat now, and I would be incredibly sick afterwards.

A big-ass burger, with cheese, bacon, and egg. Thick-cut chips with mayo and tomato sauce. And a beer! Or if there's no booze, a coke.

voidPtr's assumptions are essentially correct; here is a Slate explainer from last year that covers the subject quite well. It also includes the nugget that the list linked by poxic has not been updated since 2003 because somebody decided that it was offensive, although the Texas Department of Criminal Justice still includes last meal information (if not requested otherwise by the prisoner) in their press releases. Slate (along with a link follow to see what the hell they were trying to say) says Florida requires the ingredients to be locally available, to cost less than $40, and makes the meals in the regular prison kitchen.

So I can really see why voidPr would go with greasy breakfast food. To me, what you can realistically get from a prison kitchen is almost certainly not going to rise to anything I'd want to characterize as a "Last Meal". I really can't think of anything from an industrial kitchen, that would taste fine sitting around for a while after being cooked, that I would want as a last meal.

The most interesting ones were #209, #123, #160 and #55 in my opinion.
Respectively:

Justice, Equality, World Peace
Asked that final meal be provided to a homeless person
Eucharist - Sacrament.
Justice, Temperance, with Mercy

Both curious and depressing.

Personally I don't know WHAT I would want in the final one but there'd definitely be a nice raw CRUNCHY (emphasised because this is what makes it nice) turnip in there.

I wonder if it's possible to order a last meal with perticular components that could be assembled into some kind of explosive. I guess we'll just have to sentence a desperate but brilliant chemist to death and find out. Any volunteers?

keeping in mind it's being made by a prison kitchen: a big, greasy, rare double cheddar cheeseburger with bacon and barbecue sauce, mounds of shoestring fries cooked just right, a good strong pale ale / coke if no beer available.

Shrimp and salad. Shrimp not available. Served cheeseburger, french fries and cola.


This one (#152) struck me in particular: it was the first going down the list where what they got was really shown to not be much of a choice, which really helped to explain why most of them just chose what amounts to fast food. I was also impressed by the one who chose jolly ranchers.

Given that the prison is cooking the food, and a $40 limit, I'd probably go with some really delicious barbecue (brisket, ribs, or maybe a pulled pork sandwich) with the appropriate side dishes, some cans of red bull, some Jones soda, a bottle or two of white peach mango flavored juice, and a pint of chocolate raspberry truffle ice cream. The massive amounts of liquid are to ensure they have a mess to clean up.

We had this conversation a while back in our friendship group, so I'm well prepared in case the BNP get in and decide that being a lefty liberal is cause enough.

First off, Ima do it the way the OP said,

1. Calamari, really fresh calamari. With a really fresh salad. Lettuce, green and red peppers
2. A steak, rare, but not blue, and big. It's not often that you get so much meat that you can't and shouldn't finish it, but thats what I'm aiming for here.
To be served with roast potatoes, cooked in goose fat. And some excellent mustard. Really really fresh mustard.
3. A creme brulee. But a serious one, I'm going to be pretty full right now so it's got to be stomach contractingly cold, with the sugar glazed at the table infront of me, I want bubbling
sugar on top and ice crystals still in the bottom.
4. A cheese board with manchega, brie, various thon's and some soft goats cheese. Oh and some water biscuits.

Now the realistic way,
That steak, medium to well done. With roast potatoes still.
A big pot of apricot jam, strawberry jam and blackberry and apple jam. Plus a huge pot of plain yoghurt.

Alternatively,

Revenge, and make it cold.
