Peanut Butter, Date and Bacon Crisp Sandwich

Peanut butter sandwiches are a staple when you are poor. The thing is, if you don't change them up a bit you get sick of them. Here's one of my variations on the subject...

You need:
2 slices of sandwich bread
peanut butter
1 tbs chopped dates OR about 2-3 whole dates seeded and chopped up
bacon flavored potato chips -- about 4-7 depending on size, enough to cover the bread

This is pretty easy: spread peanut butter on a slice of bread, scatter the dates over it, and then lay down the potato chips. Close the sandwich and eat it.

Interestingly, the dates are needed to bring out the flavor of the chips -- I couldn't taste them in early versions of this sandwhich wherein the fruit was omitted. Meanwhile, when I tried just peanut butter and dates it begged for something crunchy to be added, so in went the potato chips.
