If you were stranded on a desert island...

Sometimes, I like to ask Peter "what three foods would you want for the rest of your life if you were stranded on a desert island?" Because I want to hear what he says. And, because I want him to ask me what my three foods would be. It's a big decision...lots of things to take into consideration. First of all, what is a desert island? Do they really even exist? This is what Google thinks a desert island looks like:

I wouldn't mind living there. I also wouldn't mind living on a DESSERT island. Anyway, the last time we played this game my answer was: roast chicken, fruit salad, and warm chocolate chip cookies. Today, Peter's three foods are:
No sweets? Boys just don't care as much about sugar as girls. These discussions really turn serious. Phrases such as "I don't think you would want saffron every day for the rest of your life" and "Ugh, why do you make me choose?" are uttered. So what are my current choices?
  • lobster roll (made with Lanney's mom's lobster salad. Hi Lanney!)
  • strawberry shortcake from Pastis
  • Can I say a cheese plate? Or does that count as more than one thing? If I have to pick one, d'Affinois.
So, what three foods would YOU choose? Please leave comments! Does anyone read this thing? Bueller? Bueller?


  1. Easy:
    1. tuesday special turkey wrap from Club 185
    2. cajun turkey, with extra sauce, from Heidi's Brooklyn Deli
    2. David sunflower seeds, original, in shell

  2. right now i would say
    pizza (that wuold always be on my list)
    cereal (do i have to pick one kind? i would want pb puffins and special k red berries)
    and eggplant parmigana from my favorite place in NJ
    now i'm hungry!

  3. 1. Ice cream - either Ben & Jerry's Sweet Cream w/ Oreos, Brigham's Chocolate, or JP Licks coffee, or Jeni's Salty Caramel, or...this could go on for days (I might just bring 3 ice creams)
    2. Chipotle.
    3. Bolognese from Rino's in East Boston.

  4. Definitely ice cream, then eggplant parm and rye bread. Of course I wouldn't be gluten free and the sun would shine every day.

  5. p.s. Thanks for the compliment. I love your blog!

  6. thanks for all the comments! nick, that's a lot of turkey. amy, yessss on the pizza. it was a tough decision, i almost put the margherita pizza from trattoria dell'arte. bub and donna - good call on the ice cream. and donna, thanks for reading!
