I was commenting on the killer deer thread and decided to start the following discussion: if you were on death row and your death date was tonight, and you were given the choice of one final meal, what would it be? I know in most real prisons, you can't have outside meals or fast food, just a certain type of food from the prison kitchen, but HELL WITH IT - in this prison, you can have anything in the universe, including have your mom make it.
That being said, here's my menu:
Fried venison Mashed potatoes White gravy Homemade biscuits A gigantic glass of whole milk An entire apple pie
Yes, I am a country boy. :-)
Salmon patties are a close second, with the same side dishes.

-The thickest Porterhouse steak they could find, cooked medium rare, (No real need to worry about E.Coli, right?), topped with Jack Daniels grilling sauce -Garlic mashed potatoes, lumpy as all fuck, mashed unpeeled -A bowl of cream of broccoli soup that's just as thick as the mashed potatoes -For desert, a slice of Dairy Queen ice cream cake And a seemingly endless supply of Gentlemen's Jack and "ghetto" iced tea (you know, the kind in the big plastic milk jugs).

BEST. ICE CREAM. EVAR.
I think I'll have a bowl of Ol Fuzzy's mashed potatoes, too. Skin-on, lumpy as hell, full of pepper and garlic...ah yeah.
According to the Oklahoma prisons web site, the most popular last meal in this state is...
Fried catfish. (?)
EDIT: Just got through looking at the Texas site. I can't believe some guys don't have a final meal. This guy was hungry: "Two 16 oz. ribeyes, one lb. 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."
Can you believe they would let him have all that crap?

I'll start with mini-crabcakes with a cilantro cream sauce or fried alligator with a key lime mustard dipping sauce - then either a small bowl of butternut squash soup or a small bowl of my southwestern turkey soup - for the entree it would be either Chicken Mole Poblano Enchiladas or a roast pork loin with an apple cider glaze, yellow rice and an acorn squash with a maple-habanero glaze - for dessert it's either deep dish apple pie with a scoop of french vanilla bean or a quart of Edy's/Dreyers discontinued Hot Chili Chilly Dreamery Ice Cream......ah hell - bring it all to me

I thought the book was OK. Maybe King finished the book before 1999. I'm glad about the disclaimer at the end, as well as the coda, which makes it clear that (while probably based very closely on reality), it's still a complete work of fiction.
