Elvis' favorite sandwich didn't kill him because he is still alive

Some people say this sandwich might have killed him, but what do you care?  Elvis lives!

Elvis' favorite peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwich:

What you need:

-3 tablespoons peanut butter

-2 slices white bread

-1 banana, peeled and sliced

-3 slices cooked bacon

-1 1/2 teaspoons butter

How to make it:

1. Slice everything and put it on the bread.

2. Spread the butter on the outside of the sandwich.

3. Grill until the bread is golden brown and the peanut butter is melted.

Song of the Day: "Love Me Tender"

Oh, what a gorgeous song.

As a young girl, many years after he’d died, I actually had a crush on the King while all of my friends had crushes on, say, New Kids on the Block, or whoever was in at the moment. I had Elvis art on my walls, and I’d play his music at my grandmother’s house, rocking out on a plastic guitar like nobody’s business. But when he sang this song, I would melt. I don’t think he was my first crush, but he was probably my first strong crush.
