An Elvis Cookbook? Peanut Butter and ‘Nanner Sandwiches Anyone?
Today (January 8), is the King's birthday. My mother, like everyone else's, was/is a HUGE Elvis fan. In fact, when Elvis died in August, it was the day my parents were getting married. I make the joke, but I am pretty sure it's true, they almost didn't get married that day because of it!
I like Elvis, his style, his music, his live concerts I've seen. I also enjoy his weird taste in food. Color me surprised when I ran across this jewel on the internet. Elvis had a cook book! Are You Hungry Tonight? Was published on August of 1992 and contains recipes he and Priscilla loved, and some of his own mother's recipes.
Naturally the Peanut Butter and 'Nanner Sandwiches are in there, but so is the recipe for Priscilla's Wedding Cake. Another strange recipe inside is the Burnt Bacon and Mustard Sandwich. I won't judge, I've eaten worse combos in my life.
Ebay user Pollysteve, has a copy for sale online, and you can find them on Amazon as well for a few dollars. I really think I should invest in one for the proper way to prepare one of these burnt bacon sandwiches!
