There is a paradoxical construct about a man who is told that he is to be executed at dawn one day in the next week, but he will not know which day it will be until supper time the evening before. He concludes that it would be impossible for those terms to be carried out, because if he is still alive at noon on Friday, he would know that Saturday must be the day, and would know it before supper time. So he eliminates Saturday as the possible date, leaving Friday as the deadline, and would then know at noon on Thursday that both Friday and Saturday had been eliminated as possibilities. Similarly, he can work his way all the way back to the beginning of the week.

In addition to the happy discovery that he could not be executed, he has also received seven "last meals", and is not faced with this difficult decision. He can have caviar one day and a cheeseburger another.

Steak (rare filet)
Snow crab legs
Lobster
Sashimi

Also in case anyone is curious about the real deal, here is the list:

Definitely a lot heavier on comfort foods like fried chicken than the seafood tilt the thread responders seem to have.

Check out #13 = Cool Whip and cherries

Glutton award = #26

Stanley Allison Baker Jr.: Two 16-ounce ribeyes, one pound turkey breast (sliced thin), twelve strips of bacon, two large hamburgers with mayo, onion and lettuce, two large baked potatoes with butter, sour cream, cheese and chives, four slices of cheese or one-half pound of grated cheddar cheese, chef salad with blue cheese dressing, two ears of corn on the cob, one pint of mint chocolate chip ice cream and four vanilla Cokes or Mr. Pibb.

In reality if I knew I was going to get executed I probably wouldn't have much of an appetite.

A big mac, fries and a coke maybe? I wouldn't be worrying about what I ate anymore.

There was a comedy skit years about about this very thing. The prisoner (played by Jack Cassidy I believe) wanted Hummingbird tongues...something he knew would take a lot of time to get thus giving him more time on the clock. LOL
