Last Meals

I had an early breakfast and a late lunch yesterday.  Getting home around 3:30 p.m. left me very hungry, so it’s no surprise that the highlight of my afternoon was this sandwich.

Turkey Tomato and Avocado Sandwich

Cajun turkey (from the deli at Publix), Havarti dill cheese, tomato slices, sliced avocado and ground pepper on a whole wheat deli flat is a combination I will surely be repeating.  I paired it with a side of low-fat cottage cheese topped with more sliced avocado.  Yummy yummy, avocado in my tummy!

Scott and I have been on the discussion of food lately.  What our favorite dishes are, where our favorite restaurants are and how many hours until the next meal.  He’s always been a little more “go with the flow” on the last subject, where I always have to have a plan.  I guess it gives me something to look forward to.

It’s very common for people living a healthy lifestyle to plan their meals ahead of time.  I usually plan out one meal of the day, winging the other two with whatever I’m in the mood for.

All this talk about planning food brings me back to last Saturday afternoon.

Famous Last Meals

In the middle of doing housework, I was unexpectedly intrigued by a documentary on the Discovery Channel.

Flipping through stations and trying to get something to play in the background, I came across Death Row: The Final 24 Hours.

<Insert chills here.>

*Please Note: We have the Death Penalty in the United States.  Since it is a very controversial topic, I’m not going to go into whether I’m for or against it.  It’s here, and there’s a vast amount of documentaries, article and stories about it.  Although capital punishment saddens me, I can’t help but be interested in writing and learning more about it.

I just love the Discovery Channel.  I find myself stumbling upon things I’d never think I would even want to know… then BAM! I’m hooked for at least an hour.

The documentary covered the process of execution from last meal requests to their final walk down death row, covered by men who work there.  I turned it on half way through the show, but when the episode ended I kept thinking about last meal requests.

Some prisoners decline their last meal.  If it were me, I would go all out and stuff myself silly.  I say that now, but when put into actual situation I would probably be to terrified to even move, much less eat.

Popular Requests

Cheeseburgers and french fries came in at the number one request.

Timothy McVeigh, a terrorist, requested 2 pints of mint chocolate chip ice cream.

John Wayne Gacy, charged with 33 counts of murder, ordered twelve fried shrimp, a bucket of KFC original friend chicken, french fries and a pound of strawberries.

The well known Ted Bundy, charged with over 35 counts of murder, was denied a special request and instead served steak and eggs, hash browns, toast with butter, and orange juice.

Intrigued yet?

You can read more about Famous Death Row Last Meals via Huffington Post.

I know this topic isn’t very glamorous to write about, but I just couldn’t get it out of my head.  Like I mentioned before, I could easily get hooked on the Discovery Channel for hours at a time.

Forget Death Row

Okay, let’s leave the words Death Row out of the equation.  If you could pick out exactly what and where your last meal would be, what would you choose to eat?

I think I would go for a smorgasbord of all my favorites.  Either that, or something Italian.

How about a supreme veggie loaded pizza with pepperoni?  Only if it had a side of garlic butter sauce to dip the crust in, of course.

Maybe I would just skip the meal all together and order a plate of desserts.  Pumpkin pie anyone?

There’s just so many options.

I brought this topic up at dinner with some friends last night.  They were oddly interested as well and had some great additions.  “I think I would want to make my own meal,” says one, “some kind of steak in a homemade marinade.”  Interesting.  If you’re a good cook then yes, you can cook my last meal as well!

Questions

Do you find the topic of famous or strange last meals interesting?

If you could pick anything from anywhere in the world, what would be on the plate of your last meal?

    Just to clarify, a serial killer is defined as an individual who has killed three or more people over a period of more than a month, with down time (a “cooling off period”) between the murders. Timothy McVeigh is defined as a terrorist in his acts of killing 168 people in a matter of seconds.
