80 proof: Start the meal off with a nice plate of twelve mozzarella sticks. Then move on to a large pepperoni pizza, a 2-liter regular coke, and a side order of Bojangles chicken supreme combo (chicken strips, fries, tea).
BS: A buttered filet mignon, an entire box of wheat thins, and vanilla ice cream with perfectly juicy strawberries. Bacon is used as a palate cleanser in between every course.
Liza: Chicken fried steak with cream gravy, macaroni and cheese, fried okra, mashed potatoes with cream gravy, and chocolate ice cream. And a delicious Pilsner! And for an appetizer (as if I didn’t put enough food down), my mom’s grilled cheese and tomato soup 🙂
TVFF: I’d have to go Italian. A nice cold spread with great cheese, olives and vegetables. Main course would be authentic spaghetti carbonara made with guanciale and a side of sauteed broccoli rabe with plenty of garlic and red pepper. For desert, a Philly-style cherry water ice.
Bliz: Ribeye steak rubbed with lemon pepper seasoning, marinated in Dale’s sauce for 20 minutes. Grilled medium rare over hardwood with creamy mashed potatoes and green bean casserole as sides and a big glass of ice cold milk. For desert a box of Famous Amos chocolate chip cookies. Oh and for app, perfectly fried chicken wings tossed in a in a hot sauce with ranch on the side.
ML: A plate of french cheese, a crusty baguette, and a huge cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee.
C. Christy Concrete: Tuna salad sammich on whole wheat, bread and butter pickles, and a Mexican Coke. On a beach. With fritos.
Maids: It would have to be a broccoli dish…. yep, broccolini perfectly cooked drenched in a Thai ginger and garlic peanut curry sauce on top of sticky brown rice. For dessert, an apple crumble topped with brown sugar and (fuck it, it’s my last meal, I don’t care if I get terrible stomach cramps as a result) two large balls of cinnamon-flavored ice cream from the Grand Ole Creamery in Saint Paul MN. Mmmmm….Oh I forgot the app! I would have a plate of KaYannThee gyaw (eggplant fritters) with the spicy red dipping sauce from Mandalay Burmese Restaurant in Silver Spring. Oh, and I think I’ll have a mango lassi.
Allyson: Appetizer: Goat cheese marinated in lavender honey spread on baguette, accompanied by a glass of pinot grigio. Entree: My mom’s spaghetti and meatballs. (Yes, I’d be breaking vegetarian for this, but hey, it’s my last night on Earth!) accompanied by a glass of shiraz. Dessert: Amy’s* sweet cream ice cream with ginger snaps, followed by a pot of earl grey rooibos tea.
*Austin’s local answer to Cold Stone, and a million times better
Britannia: I’d go with some butter drenched sea bass, nothing added to it, just simple. Guac would also have to be in there somewhere, spicy. Served with chilled Champagne.
gansie: Steak frites with bearnaise sauce.

80, you forgot the best part! DIRTY RICE.
Gansie … I’m with you … I remember seeing Julia make Bearnaise on her show in the 70s and tasting the real deal from a French chef in my 2nd kitchen job around the same time … I can’t recreate that euphoria/that virgin experience with anything else … yes, make sure I have an extra side of Bearnaise … and any Bordeaux in the $1000 range will do … I mean it is my last supper.
