Five Things to Eat Before You Die

The Traveler's Lunchbox has started a real food craze: Five Foods to Eat Before You Die, food bloggers planning, reflecting and forcing themselves, as tough as it might be, to a list of just five.

Fascinating, the lists collected here. The food, of course. But more interesting are the perspectives, both aspirational travel-planning and hopeful last-meal lists. Mine, certainly falls onto the last-meal table, but the list came easily, no exchanges, no questions.
  1. Mom's bread: Heavy, dense and slightly grain-sweet. With butter, please.
  2. Nana's peroghies: Blueberry, please. (The recipe just happens to be online.)
  3. Gramma's blueberry pancakes: In bear shapes, please, just like Gramma made them on Sunday mornings before church.
  4. My sister's shortbread: made with a deft touch that produces cakes as light as air, with just the right crumb. With tea, please.
  5. My Finnish sister's strawberry whipped cream cake: traditional Scandinavian cakes, layers of sponge cake piled with berries and whipped cream. With coffee, please.
I'm tagging nearby food bloggers.

  1. This one really has gone like a wild fire.
    Perfect answers. I love to partake - with tea please!
    Thanks for your kind words - I really am happy not being perfect!

  2. I love your list. I've only read a few others, and it really is interesting how different they all are. I'm looking forward to going over to where they're all collected--what a great idea. And thanks for tagging me! : )

  3. I love seeing what other people like to eat! It always gives me ideas on new things to try.

    I wanted to thank you, belatedly, for linking me on your Pie Ala Blog. Switching to Beta Blogger has enabled me to see all my links/comments. Thanks!
