    Elvis Confessions

    We have all probably read about the unusual food combinations that were favourites of Elvis, like deep fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches...but... I am sure we all have our own delicacies that we might not like to confess to liking. In England, a real bizzare combo is Ice Cream with Jelly; that's Jello to those in the US/Canada

    So to start off - forgive me Loungers, I have sinned and I confess that I love cold spaghetti bolognaise sandwiches on white bread with lots of real butter.

    Hetty, I could go for that myself but I'd have to have it at least slightly warm.

    My delicacy:
    <img src=/S/flags/UK.gif border=0 alt=UK width=30 height=18> Chips dipped in thick milk shake
    <img src=/S/flags/USA.gif border=0 alt=USA width=30 height=18> French Fries dipped in thick shake

    My appetite for this went into steep decline, the more I learned about leading fast food 'restaurants'...

    <img src=/S/burga.gif border=0 alt=burga width=40 height=15> <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17> <img src=/S/spook.gif border=0 alt=spook width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/puke.gif border=0 alt=puke width=60 height=15>

    This delicacy works almost as well though with oven chips and ice cream.

    Raw Christmas cake mixture - far superior to the cooked article! <img src=/S/munch.gif border=0 alt=munch width=19 height=17> This was a favourite treat as kids - you knew that Christmas was on the way as well! <img src=/S/joy.gif border=0 alt=joy width=23 height=23>

    Re: Elvis Confessions

    I've been known to put almost ANYTHING in a Tortilla shell (large, soft, flour-based shell, often used for Burritos).

    Options include (but are not limited to): Cheese (always), beef, chicken, vegetables, rice... and any left-over food that I'm tired of eating plain.
    Put the cold food on the shell, fold over once.
    Place in the microwave for 1 minute on high.
    Next, place in a toaster-oven or oven on high for 3-5 minutes (until slightly brown)
    Remove, cover with Sour-Cream and/or Ketchup (or Catsup, depending on where you're from)

    mmmmmmmmm.... yummy <img src=/S/yum.gif border=0 alt=yum width=15 height=15>

    Definitely bachelor's food!

    After, naturally (though occasionally at the same time!). And don't forget the fish supper while waiting for the pizza to be ready....

    My favourite version of the "chip butty"
    White bread, sprinkled with Worchester sauce, a few hot chips, roll up and devour <img src=/S/chef.gif border=0 alt=chef width=19 height=22> <img src=/S/munch.gif border=0 alt=munch width=19 height=17> <img src=/S/flags/NewZealand.gif border=0 alt=NewZealand width=30 height=18>

    (Pardon me while I channel my Californian nephew)

    Doood! Would you be willing to share the garlic chocolate cookie recipe.

    One of the odd things that my sister discovered when she was pregnant was toast with butter, then peanut butter, then a sprinkling of sweetened shaved coconut. Mmmmm.

    A real sweet, ripe peach eaten alternately with a dill pickle.
    Cottage cheese with several shots of Louisiana hot sauce.
