Last Meals

What's your favorite food or meal? And can you post a recipe of it?

I read an article a few months ago about last meals. The author commented that there are two kinds of people who spend any time thinking about what they want for their final meal: prisoners on death row, and chefs. He then went on to write an interesting article about how almost everyone he interviewed chose some sort of comfort food as their perfect (or final) meal.
The article got me thinking--if I knew I were going to die tomorrow, what would I want for dinner tonight? It didn't take me very long to figure it out:
Grilled chicken alfredo with bacon, tomatoes, artichokes, garlic and peas.
I guess I'll have to post a recipe on my cooking blog, although it's just a simple homemade alfredo sauce with lots of things thrown in. I would say that the simplicity and ease of it is part of why I like it, except that when I'm at a restaurant with a menu full of elaborate options (none of which I have to make) I STILL almost always end up ordering something like it.
I also adore apple pie, *cardamom bread, homemade fruit smoothies (I think strawberry-peach is my favorite), and those brownies I mentioned the other day.

*cardamom bread is a scandinavian Christmas tradition. I'll post the recipe when it's seasonally applicable.

Had to comment because I live in Alaska, too. Our state rocks! I'm not sure about the main dish - it would require serious contemplation on my part and my 10-month old just woke up, so no chance of that right now - but my last meal would have to include mashed potatoes. The kind made with cream cheese. Ooh, and sweet corn on the cob. Oh, man, I feel hunger pains comin' on. Gotta roll. :)
