The last meal has evolved as a custom to award a condemned prisoner a meal of his choice before execution. In the Bible, Jesus shares his last meal with his closest disciples and dined on flat bread and wine and likely some lamb as well. Timothy McVeigh chose two pints of mint chocolate-chip ice cream. Sean Gallagher chose to have his farewell party at Rudy's for some barbecue (although he was just moving from Albuquerque to Enid).

So what should I eat before leaving the state of green chile cheeseburgers to the land of (ugh) Tex-Mex?
Green chile is pretty high on the list. If anything I may be making a return trip to the Lotaburger in Tucumcari. Also, some traditional Mexican tacos are always welcome - although tacos already played the starring role at my goodbye fiesta. So I'm not sure what's left. What will I be missing out in Enid, Oklahoma? What will I regret not eating? What will I crave?
My other questions are for you: What would you crave? What would you order for your last meal? Would it be regional? Would it be two pints of mint chocolate-chip ice cream?
I'd love to hear your answers...
