On the 21st of December something big is going to
happen... so say the ancient Mayans.
Some believers say it is the beginning of a new spiritual
era. Others go as far as to quack that the Earth will be sucked into a black hole,
or my fave, collide with a planet called Nibiru. Hey, we might even be able to
talk to aliens 'eh?
I’m sure the Mayans didn’t mean for all this craziness and in
my opinion, the beginning of a new era will suit me just fine. *holds thumbs for one where all my New Year's resolutions come true*
But it brings us to the poignant question… ‘What would be
your final meal before the end?’ Don’t tell me you haven’t ever thought about
My Mayan menu
I shall be sitting by the ocean with my family and many ice-cold bottles of Dom Perignon and a cold crystal glass at my lips.
with, fresher than fresh (not too big) oysters with zesty toppings. Then I'll move onto large wooden platters of crusty bread and Gorgonzola, ripe bries and French mountain cheeses with sticky sweet figs. Salty cured hams and pancettas will be draped over everything.
To end off with, a lemon tart
that is so lemony it makes my lips curl, with a thin, crunchy sugared
topping and buttery pastry. *faints with heavenly happiness*
