CONTEST RESULTS: Last Meal Before the Comet Hits

Reactions:  
So I had a pop-up contest and asked:

POP-UP CONTEST: A comet is going to hit the earth and you have time for one last meal? What is it? I'll pick three winners tomorrow. Winners get either a signed copy of Grunt Life, Grunt Traitor or FUBAR! GO!

I found the culinary decision making very exciting and interesting from a sociological perspective. Seeing everyone's favorite meals let me know a little bit more about everyone. I noticed that beef won out, especially steak. I love a good steak. Medium rare definitely. In fact, I've always wanted to have a real Delmonico steak. I've been to several restaurants who claim to, but when I ask, it's never the real thing. I'd like to have one before a comet hits for sure.

Still, there are so many choices.

I put a round up of everyone's choices below. You should really go through them. Some are quite inspired, while others are nicely quaint.

If you want, hit Control-F and input what your favorite food it and see if it's here.

Or you can skip to the bottom to see the winners.

Samaire Provost Full blown Thanksgiving Day Roasted Turkey Dinner, with all the trimmings, just like mom used to make, then afterward, hot toddies 'till I can't walk upright, then I'll be ready to be smushed by the comet kiki emoticon

Wendy Cooper Brenner I would go to the grocery store and buy enough food to bring to the homeless shelter. I'd rather eat my last meal with people who haven't had 3 meals a day than eat a decadent meal alone! I'd enjoy the meal and appreciate it much more!

Paul Watson Fish and chips with tomato sauce and a few beers for me. Screw waiting 3 hours for a meal to be delivered to a table. just phone in an order, pick it up and head to the highest hill and enjoy what time you have left.

Cameron Pierce Last meal? I'd start with a little sashimi. Second course would be homemade bread and clam chowder. Pair the chowder with Stone's smoked porter with vanilla bean. The main course would be barbecued Chinook, Dungeness crab, and a slice of mushroom pot p...See More

And the winners are

Charie D. La Marr for her simplicity. Chocolate, just chocolate.

Lance Cheuvrant for getting the closest to what I'd have. Gotta go out with Lamb. Add to that the oysters and wine, and you had me. I need to come over to your house so we can practice making and eating this. "Green lipped oysters, raw. Lamb kebabs marinated in garlic, shallots and red wine. Fresh greens with feta, olive oil and lemon juice. Strawberries in cane sugar and glasses of Chartreuse to finish the evening."

And finally, Wendy Cooper Brenner for her stalwart humanity even in the face of a human race killing comet.  "I would go to the grocery store and buy enough food to bring to the homeless shelter. I'd rather eat my last meal with people who haven't had 3 meals a day than eat a decadent meal alone! I'd enjoy the meal and appreciate it much more!"
