That One Last Meal–#MFRWAuthor Blog Challenge — 15 Comments

  1. My mother, who currently lives in an assisted living center, would love to make her exit the way your mother-in-law did. I hope for her sake that she can. Good thing I wrote my blog post before I read yours. I hadn’t even considered breakfast foods. It was tough enough without adding those into the mix!

  2. Ooh, I hadn’t thought about breakfast! Eggs Benedict or a cheese and asparagus omelette with home-made hash browns and a side of French toast and Belgian waffles. That would work.

    I want to go like your mom did, in my sleep after a good meal.

    • Home made hash browns are the best! I like the country fries with lots of onions and peppers.

  3. Passing through the veil in my sleep after a good meal. That’s my choice. Hadn’t thought of breakfast though since I don’t eat it. But will add an old-fashioned cinamon bun (the kind we bought from the back of the bakery truck) and a piece of pecan pie to my list.

    • Oh gosh, that cinnamon bun and pecan pie might just do you in, but what a way to go!

  4. Getting her last meal in, your mom was a smart woman. Junk food, yes it has been my weakness for a long time. Trying slowly to change that, but yeah, for the last meal screw it all and enjoy all the yummy options.

  5. I had a hard time with this topic, but reading posts like this has inspired me. I’d want my dear departed. mother’s meatballs and mashed potatoes, followed by her toffee cookies — and all of this cooked personally by her hands.

  6. Nice post! A hearty breakfast probably would have been my second choice since I haven’t been able to stomach eggs, real butter, or toast in about a decade 🙁 Thanks for sharing!
