'Jail/Prison' Themed Dinner Party

Are you sure they don't just want a nice interesting dinner? They had said they want it prison themed? I'd make sure.

I had a friend who was a guard at a large prison. Make sure that this is something they would want.

If you were alone on New Years: what would you treat yourself to?

I would make a nice little picnic to pick at for hours while watching festivities on TV.
Great bread
Truffle butter (room temp)
Splurge on a little caviar, I like the small black paddlefish. Eat it with a spoon!

Best charcuterie I could afford
Blue cheese and a soft goat cheese
Pecans and dried cherries

and if I felt like cooking I'd make a Pissaladière. If you haven't tried this before it's simple to put together, but really depends on the best anchovy in olive oil and the best olives. I use a puff pastry, not pie dough or pizza dough which could also be used. Even if you think you don't like anchovy this will convert you.

Here's the recipe I use
