The King's Favorite

Let me start this post off with a little disclaimer - I am hurtin' today. See, my bachelorette party was this past weekend. Combine a bunch of girls who go months at a time without seeing each other, a little (or a lot) of alcohol, a crazy reason to celebrate and no sleep and you will understand why I've had trouble getting out of bed today. We had an absolutely amazing time and now we must all pay the price.

In my state I'm looking for a particular kinda something to eat - must take minimal effort to make, contain only staple items that I already have on hand and have absolutely no semblance of being "healthy." This little sandwich fits the bill. It takes no more effort than a grilled cheese and, being in this not-so-amazing state, tasted like the most delicious thing I've ever had. Peanut butter, bread, bananas, fried - 'nough said.

This fried PB & banana sandwich was apparently Elvis's favorite snack. Although I would think it would qualify more as a full on meal, I can see why he liked it so much. Paula also added her little spin on it and added a bit more sugar to the bread (leave it to Paula to make something already glutinous that much more fattening!). I don't really know much about Elvis except that he was originally from Tupelo, MS, which is the same place that one of my beloved bachelorette patrons lives. Mrs. L is the cutest thing you ever did see, and she was a major trooper this weekend. So this tasty treat is in her honor. Thanks L - enjoy! I'll be eating this in bed...
