    Pnut butter and banana sandwiches with Elvis??? ...really, other than my dad, can't think of anyone that interests me enough. We said our last good-bye 23 years ago and I still miss him.

    I spent a couple of dads last years in Cocoa, FL. He had a little bass boat he kept out on the St. Johns River and we would go out a couple nites a week and catch bream/shell crackers on fly rods, fishing the reed islands. We would usually come back with at least 15-20, just enough for a good mess. We'd usually go home, clean the fish and my wife would fry them up with some fries/ hush puppies and couple cold brews. Best fish I've ever eaten and some fond memories.

    she's still alive, and i wouldn't consider her quite a historical figure, but i want to eat with paula deen! oh my good lord, the food she cooks looks amazing. i would want her to cook at a backyard barbeque with my family. and i would hope that she would make her famous fried chicken....yum. ok, a little off topic. but i'm hungry...i think that's a good enough excuse :)

    Attila the Hun and his followers -

    When they traveled across China and the Tatar region of Asia to Hungary and Rome, they put their meat under the saddles of the horse to tenderize and warm it up for the evening meals. - Ever heard of "Steak Tartar"?

    Just some rare meat, red wine and bread.

    He died from a bloody nose after his wedding because it stopped his breathing.

    I would probably go with the people of the original Jamestown colony. They pretty much paved the way for everything that we are today. Can't really think of what an appropriate dinner would be :(

    In what I saw they would put wild onions to flavor it as well.

    Tx -

    I don't think the Huns were interested in fine seasoning since they never grew onions and there were many seasoning to be used. - Just a ride and conquer trip of a few thousand miles with no frills and without a good bottle of red wine, so I would bring that.
