Day 28: Choose your final meal on death row and make it

The poplar choices listed in the book are as follows:

Leonard Rojas Offense: Double Murder. Executed: 12/04/2002
One whole fired chicken (extra crispy), salad with Thousand Island dressing, French toast, two Diet Cokes, one apple pie, and French Fries

Lawrence Buxton Offense: Murder. Executed 02/26/1991
Steak (filet mignon), pineapple upside-down cake, tea, punch and coffee

Ron Shamburger Offense: Murder. Executed 09/18/2002
Nachos with chili and cheese, one bowl of sliced jalapenos, one bowl of picante sauce, two large onions (sliced and grilled), tacos (with fresh tomatoes, lettuce, and cheese), and toasted corn tortilla shells. 

It was a toss up between a cheeseburger and french fries (don't know how to use the grill or make french fries), filet mignon (I really need to learn to grill), and.....

Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo
And a dream meal wouldn't be complete for me without crunchy bread (and yes crunchy is a culinary technical I didn't make the bread though :)

Side Note: Death Row Cannibal Denied Last Meal: Archie Williams, 36, was denied his last meal before his execution in July 2002. Reports from the prison state that Williams had requested that he be served his cellmate, John Perison, who was also on death row awaiting his execution had agrred to himself be fed to his friend after his death. 'They had made some sort of death pact with each other a few weeks before they were set to be executed' stated Kevin Marsh, Warden of the San Angelo Maximum Security Prison. 'The state is not in the habit of granting such odd and disgusting requests.'
