ITEM FIFTEEN: The Pewter Platter


ITEM FIFTEEN: The Pewter Platter. So maligned is the pewter platter that it garners no more than a dollar from the church sale. Let me say though, in the defense of this base metal, that pewter has a quality overlooked by snobs seeking shiny, pretty things, rather than the underbelly slag-filled late night sandwiches of kings. Ugly as it is, the Elvis Sandwich, with the triumvirate of bacon, peanut butter and banana fried in bacon grease, adds a convert with every bite. Today, the king reigns in another, holding high my new pewter platter in the early evening in Old Town, Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The King

Peanut butter, banana and bacon!

 Elvis, your sandwich has left the building.

Non-stop photos of bacon all week long.
