If you could only eat one food and one drink for the rest of your life, what would it be?

If I could only eat one food for the rest of my life it would be pasta….all sorts of pasta’s with sauces.

If you told me I could only have one type of drink for the rest of my life…I would frown but then choose water. Water can be flavored with fruits using an infusion method if you needed a little flavor.
