Lost Supper - The Last Meal (No Spoilers - I promise!)

I have so many great memories of Lost. I have been a fan of the series for the past three years - ever since my boyfriend introduced me to the series. I'm sad to see it go but at the same time I'm anxious for two reasons:

One: ANSWERS! I doubt every question I have will be answered, but hey, some answers are better than no answers. I guess.

Two: Since Lost is having a two and a half hour finally and I plan on serving a feast so we can enjoy ourselves while saying farewell. I'll probably have a few friends over - I know my sister and my roommate will be eating with us so I don't feel so bad about making so much food! I can't help it - I'm excited.

What's on he menu? Well, I finally got a BBQ for our yard so I'm planning on cooking most of my food over an open fire - what's more "trapped on an island" style than food cooked on an open flame? I plan on having three different styles of chicken kabobs to start things off with - Chili-Lime Chicken Kabobs, Pineapple Chicken Tenders and some Peanut Butter Chicken Skewers. Chili Lime because...well...I like chili and lime! Pineapple for the tropicalness of the island (I've mostly seen the Losties eat coconut and mangoes, but I'm sure there are pineapples on that island someplace) and peanut butter for Claire and Charlie's romance - one of my favorite couples on the island.

Sides shall include a delicious Black Bean and Couscous Salad, a Mango Pineapple Salad with Mint, Potato Chips, some home made Ranch Dressing as a dip (Pioneer Woman Style) and some Sliced Pineapple pieces (mostly because pineapple is my boyfriend's favorite and he will devourer sliced pineapple within seconds of it being put in front of him).  

Drinks are an important part to any meal. We love margaritas in this house. By we I mean my roommate and I. My best friend from high school 8 years later roommate. The mother of my God Child. How can I say no when she wants a margarita? I can't. I love her so much I'm going to have three options available as far as margaritas go. Frozen Strawberry Margaritas, Banana Margaritas and some good old Mangoritas. For those of us not drinking (because we'll be way too involved with the plot to want to miss any critical detail because of a buzz) I will be making Golden Wedding Punch. It's no one's wedding, but the tropical flavors of this punch are excellent and fit with the theme well (plus it's tasty!). 

And finally, desert. I have to make Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies for the same reasons I have to slice some fresh pineapple. I was also thinking of making a Peanut Butter Pie and, of course, some Sand Cups! I would make the desert portion more obscene by adding things like, oh like some Strawberry Upside Down Cake or some Mango Sorbet, but we're not huge desert people here and I'm afraid if I made that much it would go to waste. I might just make them anyway. How can I say no to Mango Sorbet?

I hope everyone enjoys the finally (I especially hope I enjoy it) and if you're planning on having a feast to celebrate however long you've been watching the show, you can't go wrong with some of the ideas I've posted above.

Sounds good! I love Lost - I've seen every episode, and if my kids interrupt me tomorrow night, I may lock them in their rooms (just kidding)! I so hope we get some great answers, and that it's one of those finales that leave you feeling satisfied, not "WTF?" Well, enjoy and let us know how your dinner goes!

Manda: Wow! You have a very enthusiastic menu planned! Having never seen the TV show, I am completely unfamiliar with the storyline. Hope you have a great time watching the finale.
 
MK!

Menu sounds great! We don't have TV, so we download the episodes from ITunes, available a day or two after airing. I hope I can keep myself away from media long enough not to have the finale spoiled!

Lost...left me Lost on my first or second viewing, so have not followed, but hope your party goes well. The menu is nicely connected, even should you leave off desserts altogether!

Oh, the final show was emotionally satisfying to a point, up until they didn't answer any questions and had an ending that didn't make sense with the whole series.

About Me
I hope to be a future teacher. Right now I major in English and Political Science. One day I might aspire to be a local politician - who knows! Maybe even an acclaimed author. Oooh, acclaim! Right now my possibilities are endless. I also love to cook. I live with my best friend, my god child and my boyfriend. We're all a happy little family in which I do all the cooking since no one else in the house likes to cook. I also watch my god child one day a week and we try to do kid friendly recipes together to introduce her to cooking and nutrition. I try to plan meals but we usually end up going to the market once or twice a week to pick up food items on sale. Almost everything in my pantry, fridge and freezer come from a sale. We try and be very conscious of how we spend our money and what we spend it on. I have a coupon book and I do clip coupons regularly but we usually just end up getting "the store brand" of whatever is on sale because it's always cheaper anyway.
My favorite things to cook
I have a lot of favorite things to cook! This Christmas my boyfriend gifted me my first ever stand mixer. I try and use it at least a few times a week to show him I appreciate the gift. I've been making a lot of breads from scratch in my household. I also love love love to use my slow cooker! It not only makes delicious roasts, soups and sides but it makes them super easy too. I do go to school and I do have a lot of things to take care of at home, so when I know I'm busy I just throw something in the slow cooker and it always turns out fabulously! I make the best, non fried, not butter rich hot wings for my little sister who is a junk food enthusiast. My turkey three-cheese lasagna is a highly requested recipe by my junk food loving sister as well as my healthy conscious boyfriend. It's a recipe that can't be beat. I also do a four hour roasted chicken that is requested in my household a few times a month. I tend to do it on weekends when I have four hours at home to spare.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is not the best cook in the world. My grandmother, on the other hand, has made everything from scratch since she was a little girl. Growing up I remember helping her cook before she moved to another state. We had a great time together and she is my inspiration for learning to cook myself and not just eating the junk food, frozen food and canned food readily available in the house I grew up in.
My cooking triumphs
My mother made THE WORST everything, especially pot roast. Her idea of a pot roast was to stick a piece of meat in water in a steamer and let it cook all day, as if it were in a slow cooker. That was not good eats. My boyfriend is a huge fan of pot roast and I happened to have won a slow cooker last year at his family's gift exchange. I decided to chance it and make my first ever pot roast that hopefully didn't taste like shoe. It was amazing and delicious! I was so happy and now it's something we both enjoy eating regularly, usually when roasts go on sale at the market.
My cooking tragedies
What's tragic right now is that I don't have a BBQ! We've recently moved and while I have my whole kitchen set up I lack a BBQ in my yard.
