My Last Meal

I love food. So much in fact you could say I have an eating disorder. I eat because food tastes good. I eat when I'm happy, sad, mad, depressed, name the day, the mood, the occasion and food will be a major part of it.

I am, however working hard to get my eating under control {read all about that here, on "Skinny Me"}. I still want to be able to enjoy delicious food but in moderation. So I don't feel any guilt afterwards  ya' know what I'm saying?

 Just for fun the girls over at Lady Bloggers Society are posing the question today...

“You can choose your last meal. What would the menu consist of?”

 So I think I'll go a little nuts and indulge my ultimate food fantasy:)

The Fort Madison River Bridge
I grew up in the Midwest eating your typical, All-American fare. BBQ, pork chops with corn on the cob and hot dogs on a stick. One of my favorite food memories is fried catfish. Growing up on the Mississippi River fishing was one of our favorite past times. Now frying up a mess of catfish was quite the ordeal in the Jackson household.

Rule #1: Never, ever fry up catfish in the house. Oh, heavens no. Makes the house smell like fish for weeks!

Rule #2: Use cornmeal...never flour...never! Cornmeal makes for crunchy on the outside, moist and flavorful on the inside.

Rule #3: Eat with mountains of lemon and salt. YUM!

I ate one of these everyday on vacation. Heaven!
The ultimate breakfast food...
one that I would eat everyday day of my life
if it was good for me would be the oh, so delightful 
Belgian Waffle.
With strawberries. 
Oh, and cream.
Real cream.
And a touch of Maple syrup. 
Heaven. *sigh*

The Ultimate!

Whenever my wonderful husband and I go out he loves to go to Red Lobster.
 Now, don't get me wrong...I enjoy, too. But secretly I wish he'd just take me out for a good ole burger and fries. Oh my! There is nothing quite a juicy burger piled high with garden fresh tomato, thin slices of red onion, dill pickle chips, crisp lettuce, yellow mustard and ketchup. Gotta have gallons of that stuff. Not only do I sauce up my burger but I dip my burger in it, too. Served up with hot and crispy crinkle cut fries and sea salt...YUM-O!!

To top off my ultimate food fantasy instead of choosing pie or cake or brownies or ice cream this would be the way I'd go...

Juicy, ripe melon with salt:)
Oh and one more thing...the best snack in the entire Universe can only be found in one place on earth...Burlington, Iowa...home of the famous Sterzing's Potato Chips. Heaven!

Add some Prairie Farms onion dip and a large Diet Lime Coke from Sonic and I'm set.

So there you have ultimate food fantasy. Be sure and stop by Lady Blogger's Society today and read what other Women Bloggers are eating!!

  1. How fun! I think I can honestly say I have never eaten catfish. I can say, however, I have eaten a lot of potato chips.

  2. Yum...lots of things to pick up with fingers. That would be a fun meal.
