Well today is supposed to be the End of the World as some *genius* predicted years ago. I doubt this is true but it made me think about what I would do on my last day on Earth if I actually planned it and I started thinking about my Last Meal. What would you have as your Last Meal if you knew that it was going to be your last one?
I have to say after thinking about it I would spend my last meal in Italy eating Pasta, probably Gnocchi or Lasagna or something and I would have to have Gelato for dessert.. probably Coffee flavoured. Maybe a salad or some grilled veggies or some antipasto to round out the meal but I am pretty sure it would be like Julia Roberts eating Pizza in Eat, Pray, Love. I would hopefully be enjoying this meal with someone or some people I love.
No big foodie gourmet extravaganza's, just basic simple ingredients that taste great.
What would you choose as your last meal? Would it be something that reminds you of your childhood or something you have denied yourself because of trying to watch your calories or something that is just your favourite food of all time?
Well I am spending my so called last day having a Garage Sale so I have no idea what I am actually going to have for dinner tonight so I guess you could say I am not exactly planning to have my last meal today. Hope I am right and I get to eat a lot more Italian Meals for many years to come.
But I still think the message is always enjoy your meals as if they may be the Last Meal you ever have. Something I learned from watching my mother refuse food on her last days on earth. Food is LIFE.. never forget it.. Even though we need to Eat to Live we should enjoy every bite.
