Before I began eating, I would have to request that I be allowed my final insulin injection so I wouldn't be rendered unconscious before I could eat it all. Then again, maybe not as I could save the taxpayers money, and insulin injections use really small needles.
Appetizer: chips and salsa from Garcia's los Avenidos in Phoenix, hummus and pita bread, multiple crab rangoon, two really nice eggrolls with sweet and sour sauce and Chinese hot mustard on the side and two ice cold Diet Pepsi's
Main course(s): chili relleno from Garcia's with a flour tortilla and lots of their hot sauce, Red Lobster's shrimp in paradise, the special salad from Maria's in Rockford, IL, just about any pasta dish from Maria's, an In-n-Out cheeseburger and fries, Ribs from Box's in Rockford, a couple of slices of deep dish pizza (all veggies, no meat) from Vito's in Phoenix, a gyro from Uncle Nick's (in Rockford) with extra yogurt sauce, pork egg foo young from Grand Cafe in Bloomington, IL, three or four ice cold Diet Pepsi's. Might not seem like much, but I'm going for quality versus quantity.
Dessert: a pint of Dreamery peanut butter chocolate ice cream, one of those chocolate dreams from Carraba's Italian Grill, a mocho frappucino or two from Starbuck's, a pound of Brach's malted milk balls and a couple of slices of Guy's apple pie warmed with whipped cream, several ice cold Diet Pepsi's and at least one cup of Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee with lots of half and half.

Personally, if i were on death row, i wouldn't ask for anything or expect anything to eat...I hope I wouldn't make it to the day of execution....Why should God bless me with a meal that I don't deserve? I obviously betrayed him by being there in the first place...
