So I'm thinking about my last meal of the 20th century. Something I won't find easily if the world goes to hell? Perhaps an ice cream sandwich. How about some ideas--suggestions? M'nT

Last meal of the 20th century? That is very eay to answer. A big all you can eat buffet restaurant.

May I suggest about 500mg of a rosy phenobarbitol served up with a delightful 1962 Chateau Apple 'De Sauce. And then to finish, a chilled shot of vodka.

A large fresh vegetable salad. Followed six hours later by a fresh fruit 'n yogurt salad.

Fresh lichis if only they were in season? Pavlova cake?
But I am focusing more on January 1 breakfast plans, to start that millennium off on the right foot. I have told the children that this is their one and only chance to buy any crappy glow-in-the-dark /sugary/pushed incessantly on kid TV cereal they want, instead of sensible, healthy cereal. They can have Count Chocula, whatever. I'm liberal, I will allow this once a millennium as a special treat.
I'll probably break out that box of Millennios, how could I not? Though porridge with crystalized ginger, dried apple, raisin, maple syrup and coconut is nice...

You've got 13 months to decide what your last meal of the 20th century is going to be. Of course your choices might be limited in a month!

13 months to the Millenium (like 1000 years), 1 month to the 21th century (like 100 years) ... duh

Chinese food. Won't be much of it around if all the fresh veggies go away so I've been eating it every chance I get lately. Honestly, I think I'll miss it the most...

Prime Rib. Asparagus. Cheesecake.

Truth says that crow will be in good supply. But who will be eating it? He assumes the doomers will, but he could be in for a surprise.

oooh, Tech32, Chinese takeout does sound tempting. In fact any good food that someoneELSE has to labor over sounds good to me.

Beef madras - no, sod it, vindaloo - with plenty of peppers, onions and mushrooms, pappads, riata, garlic nan. And NO RICE. Plenty of time for that later. :)

Boiled North American Maine Lobster, with baked Scallops, and a magnificent Romaine salad. The traditional clam-bake spread if you will....
-- Billy-Boy (Rakkasan@yahoo.com), November 23, 1999.
A Kansas City Strip steak, medium rare, of course! A nice Caesar salad, crusty hard rolls and maybe French Silk pie for dessert.

Prime rib. King cut. Medium rare. Baked potato loaded with butter, sour cream, and chives. A HUGE ice cream sundae with butterscotch and chocolate syrup, topped with coconut. A whole box of chocolates to myself. Bicarbonate of soda.
