Rec: Elvis Presley's Grilled Peanut Butter And Banana Sandwich

2 slices of white bread
2 tablespoons of smooth peanut butter
1 small ripe banana mashed
2 tablespoons butter



Spread the peanut butter on one slice of bread and the
mashed banana on the other. Press the slices gently
together. Melt the butter (or to be truly Elvis-like,
melt bacon fat!), over low heat in a small frying pan.
Place the sandwich in the pan and fry until golden
brown on both sides. Eat it with a glass of buttermilk.


Please note: Elvis tended to eat 12-15 sandwiches a sitting! So belly up!

The Thought For Today

"Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway." - John Wayne

It's Memorial Day!



In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.


This day is called the Feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day and comes safe home
Will stand a-tiptoe when this day is named
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall see this day and live t' old age
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours
And say, "Tomorrow is Saint Crispian."
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars
And say, "These wounds I had on Crispin's day."
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember, with advantages
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words —
Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester —
Be in their flowing cups freshly remembered.
This story shall the good man teach his son,
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered,
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.
For he today that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition.
And gentlemen in England now abed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's Day.

Rec: Shrimp and Spinach Pizza Recipe For Two

1 Cup to1 1/2 Cup thawed small shrimp (100-150 per pound)

1 Package pizza dough (boxed, refrigerated, or make your own)

1 cup mozzarella cheese



Heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the pizza dough as
directed. Grease pizza pan (I use olive oil). Spread the
pizza dough on your pizza pan. Top the dough with the
1 Cup Alfredo sauce (or less depending on your taste).
Scatter the shrimp over the Alfredo sauce. Add chopped
spinach and sliced onion. Top with mozzarella cheese. Bake
according to the directions on your pizza dough recipe.

turns golden brown remove from the oven.

4 medium raw shrimp (31-40 count) peeled and deveined
1 green onion, sliced (the solid part – white and green)
2 Tablespoons feta cheese
¼ to ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese



Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Drizzle olive oil into a small,
cold skillet and add smashed garlic cloves. Cook over low heat
10 to 15 minutes to soften garlic and infuse the oil with garlicky
goodness. Do not brown garlic. Remove garlic from oil to cutting
board and turn oil up to MEDIUM. Add shrimp to oil and cook
3 to 4 minutes on each side or until shrimp is opaque. Remove
to cutting board, but do not discard oil. Finely chop the cooked
garlic and coarsely chop the shrimp. Place pizza shell on a
cookie sheet or pizza pan. Using a pastry brush, paint the
pizza shell with the garlic infused oil. Sprinkle on chopped
garlic, green onions, and shrimp. Crumble the feta on top and
top with mozzarella cheese. Bake 7 to 10 minutes, until
cheese is melted and just starting to brown. Cut into slices
