Mine is quite seasonal. Right now yours sounds awesome. ( But so does a whole stuffed roasted salmon! )

I'm with the others that say whatever is the mood at the time. There are too many options at this point, and likely too many more I've yet to try! My preferences tend to go Southern to Southwestern, along with some fresh New England seafood. Also, being that it is in my blood, most anything Italian works too!

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm...........might be time to go turn on FoodNetwork and take a look see if there is any inspiration on right now . . . . . .

Hi, I'm Goodweed's daughter. I suppose you could call me wildflower. He asked me to post to this thread.
This is not an easy decision to make but I think I would have to start with a salad with dark leafy greens like spinach and oak leaf lettuce and red leaf lettuce. Then throw in some fresh grape tomatoes, diced avocado, cucumber, and toasted almonds. Add some mandarin oranges and cranberries and toss with a little olive oil and cider vinegar.
Next I think I would want fillet of orange roughy (sp?) lightly fried with onion and buttered brown and wild rice seasoned with garlic and chives.
Then a nice thick cut rib-eye, medium rare seasoned lightly with oregano, grilled on the barbecue and topped with sautéed chantrelles (sp?). Ahi and serrano pepper kabobs sprinkled with lime and cilantro and fresh, uncooked cherry tomatoes.
A light seafood broth with celery, water chestnuts and chunks of lightly cooked scallops and lobster claw meat.
Finish it with a slice of hot cinnamon pear crisp topped with creamy vanilla ice cream.
Wash it all down with a large glass of milk.
My dad says I make some sort of yummy noise when I think about good food but I've never noticed this and he doesn't know how to translate it to script so use your imagination.
Later folks.

Hi Goodweed's daughter.

Glad to hear from you and get some great ideas. Your dad is well loved and respected around here, and I'm sure you are a lovely person, as well.

It's a very difficult decision. I have to say that the most I could narrow it down to would have to be seafood. I love it, and where I live I can't get it

Even when in season, the fish around here can be dicey. There's a pretty good amount of time when we can get Atlantic salmon that's acceptable, but even then, it's usually been frozen first.

If I had to choose a last meal it would be a grand seafood feast. Start out with a selection of sashimi, and maybe some tempura soft-shell crab, also some toro. And then I don't know where to begin... crab, lobster, halibut, seared rare tuna, some really really fresh salmon, sea bass, pub-style beer-battered fish sandwich with chips, seared scallops, snapper, some actually good quality shrimp. And some good shark. I haven't had good shark in forever. I'd love to try skate and real sole, and turbot.

Of course alongside that feast I'd want my other feel-good favorites... turkey manhattan, a nice rib-eye, a great cheeseburger, BBQ pork chops, stuffing, one last spicy pulled-pork burrito from a favorite mexican restaurant, and maybe a really good bowl of pasta.

So many things, really.
