It's the end of the world as we know it – so let's go dine

If the doomsday sayers of the Family Radio ministry are to be believed, the people of Earth are set to to meet their end on May 21, 2011. Saying farewell to one's nearest and dearest and preparing a howdy-do to to one's eternal fate is pretty grim business; might as well face it on a full stomach.

For the record, I'd grab my husband, our two dogs and two rabbits and a few loved ones. We'd drive to our place in upstate New York and I'd serve everyone smoked brisket, pulled pork shoulder, cole slaw, candied bacon, pimento cheese, buttermilk biscuits, my husband's potato salad, bourbon slush, fresh lemonade with smoked cherries and a final slug of 20-year-old Pappy Van Winkle bourbon and we'd all meet our maker with satisfied smiles on our faces.

    It just about noon here and its turning out to be a very nice sunny day! The family dog and cat with long antenna whiskers are all sound asleep. I have been keeping an eye on their antenna whiskers for any sign of approaching earth tremors. Since these natural animal antenna whiskers are my first line of defense and warning signs of something brewing from a distance. So far they are snoriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig. I will keep you posted of any first sign of whisker triggers from the family pets.

    according to Chinese belief, if you eat noodles you will have long life. For me then, I prefer noodles so even if the world will end i will still live. :)

    So let me get this straight, It's all free? We place an order and it gets delivered? Cool!!! Bring on the beer truck, steak, a Wholly's seafood truck, and lots'a charcoal. Oh maybe some pigeon and horse just for fun.

    fried shrimp, chilled crab cocktail, lamb chops, medium rare, fried chicken with biscuits and gravy, asparagus with hollandaise sauce, creamed spinach w/asiago cheese, chocolate nouse and to top if off a big glass of whole milk and some oreo cookies. A true foodie delight, with no guilt.

    I think I'd start with fish bowl size Dos Equis Amber with about three limes and salt and some MJ.

    Seared Ahi Tuna salad...
    Peking Style Duck Skin crepe with Plum dipping sauce...
    2lb. whole Maine Lobster with a side of King Crab Legs and large bay scallops...
    A 12 oz. filet med-rare with a glass of good Merlot...
    Half-rack of Ribs...
    About two helpings of bread and real butter...

    And by this time I would be passing out with a Large McD's Chocolate Shake in my hand! What can I say...I'm a classy gal. LMAO.

    Oooops – got my dates mixed up, thought today the world was ending so last night I went beer tasting in San Diego (Alesmith, Stone, etc) followed by homemade pretzels with mustard/barbeque/queso sauces, 3 sliders, a huge ass cinnamon roll with buttercreme icing on top from San Diego Desserts and topped it off with a pepperoni and mushroom pizza from Paradise Pizza in SD at midnight (burp).
