Dear Elvis, et al:



(An open letter to the King of Rock and Roll, not to be confused with the "King" of "Pop.")

Thank you for inventing peanut butter and banana sandwiches, or at least making them so well known that my parents were exposed to them while growing up in Memphis and could then, in turn, feed them to me.

They, like you, are excellent.

Dear Sara Lee,

Thank you for making bread that is low in calories, high in fiber, and doesn't taste like stink. It's real helpful when I'm craving a peanut butter and banana sandwich.

Dear Skippy,

Thank you for making super-chunky peanut butter. Did you know it tastes really good with banana? You should totally try it sometime.

Keep up the good work!

Dear God,

Thank you for making bananas, and for inspiring, um, someone (let's see - looks like it was George Bayle) to make peanut butter, and for inspiring someone else to put those two tasty, tasty foods together. I think it's one of the best things you did, besides, maybe, sending Jesus down here to die for me.



(Can anyone guess what I'm craving right now?)

I treated myself to the "Elvis' Pick" at Sheridan's last night before I had to go to the Boucks' house.

I treated myself to a peanut butter and banana sandwich for dinner tonight, to make up for the fact that my work went so late that I missed our Women's Ministry meeting. Again.

I had a peanut butter and banana sandwich for Sunday supper tonight! After I read your blog I saw "Peanut butter and banana stuffed french toast" on Food Network. The cravings were on! :)
