He’s hot. He’s attractive. He’s manly. He’s sensational, sexy, unique, and sensual. He makes you wanna rock ‘n roll, swing your pelvis, and get all shook up. You wanna love him tender, treat him nice, get stuck on him. With him, you won’t be lonesome tonight, because you want him, you need him, you love him.
Who is he?
Oh yeah, he’s The Elvis! And by Elvis, I mean the edible sandwich
I don’t know much about Elvis Presley, but I love him already. I mean, bacon, peanut butter, and banana sandwich? That guy is a freaking genius, and though I have limited knowledge of him, I have a feeling he and I would get along very well if he was still alive.
I’ve been dreaming about this sandwich ever since I heard about it. And today, I turned that dream into lunch. Introducing…
The Elvis Waffle’wich!!
- 2 whole-grain waffles
- 2 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
- 2 slices turkey bacon
- 1 slice sharp cheddar cheese
- 1/2 big banana, sliced
- maple syrup
Bacon, peanut butter, and bananas seem perfect by themselves already, but I could not help adding my own touch to it. But just a teeny weeny minor addition: I used waffles instead of regular bread, added a slice of sharp cheddar cheese, and drizzled maple syrup on top.
Oh, dear. I’m in love!
This took minutes to prepare. All I did was slather a tablespoon of crunchy peanut butter on one side of each waffle, top one with the cooked turkey bacon and a slice of cheddar cheese, while topping the other with sliced bananas. Toast it up in a 350 degree oven for about 5 minutes, and you are done!
How can you say no to this baby?
And what’s more, it’s healthy, too! You’ve got your complex carbs, your good fats, protein, and a touch of sweetness to satisfy your sweet tooth!
Okay, I’m sure you’re sick of the Elvis references by now…but seriously, this waffle’wich sure cheered me up from being lonely today. My brother went away for the weekend to go fishing with his friends, so I’m all alone in the house!
By the way, please pray for him…He just had an interview for a job in a hotel in Washington, D.C! Truthfully, I’m not so confident he’ll get the job…because this is how the interview went:
Interviewer: If a tourist was to ask you where is a good Italian restaurant to visit in Washington, D.C., where would you refer him to?
Brother: …Ummm…Olive Garden?
Interviewer: (stifles a snort) Where is it located?
Brother: …Ummm…I don’t know.
Interviewer: What museums are there besides the Smithsonian museums?
Brother: (gleefully, because finally he knows an answer) Spy museum!
Interviewer: Where is it located?
Brother: …Ummm…In front of the Washington Monument?
Interviewer: What kind of job are you specifically looking for in our hotel?
Brother: Anything. (PLEEEEASE?!!)
So, as you can see, I have good reason to be worried for him. Oh well, at least he will be more prepared for the next interview.

Question of the day: Ever had a horrible interview? Of course you can share an interview that went as smooth as a baby’s bottom, too, but that won’t be as fun
I remember once when I was interviewing for a server at Cold Stone’s Creamery. Now the servers at Cold Stone’s are required to burst into songs whenever a customer tips them. So the interviewer wanted me to sing! I started singing this Korean pop song (to stand out) but suddenly forgot all the lyrics! So I just sang jibberish, and my voice cracked because I was so freaked out. In the end, I got hired, but I later found out they only hire bad singers. Win some, lose some.
