My grandfather taught me that one of the greatest of sandwiches consists of (1) a slice of roasted turkey breast, (2) sharp cheddar cheese, (3) sliced onion, (4) mayo on one interior side and (5) strawberry jam on the other interior side. This can be reduced, I've found, to a simple cheese and strawberry jam sandwich, enhanced with a slice of onion.

He was also fond of sliced tomatoes sprinkled with sugar.

The whole cheese+sweet thing has never appealed to me. I've had pineapple on pizza before, but not enthusiastically. And cheese on apple pie seems like a waste of both foods. I guess I could see pairing a smooth cheese with some unsweetened preserves, that would be reasonable. I'm not all that crazy about tomatoes on grilled cheese sandwiches, even.

O, also, I continue to find the products at the Mexican supermarket down the street very intriguing. Just last night I was noting all the different kinds of jello -- like walnut for instance -- and feeling like I should buy a bunch of them and make crazy parfaits or something.

Refrigerating "natural" peanut butter after stirring does indeed keep the oil from separating out. I like "natural" peanut butter much better than the regular kind, and I find stirring up the oil incredibly annoying, so the refrigeration is totally worth it for me.

double order of banana peppers

When I worked at a pizza place, one of my favorite pizzas to make for myself was a cheese pizza, but you squeezed a handful of pepperoncini over the top, such you got the juices but no actual pepper or seeds on the pizza. The result: what looks like a plain cheese pizza hidden pickly zing.

I'm not saying you've just never had it done right -- of course I wouldn't say that -- but simple combinations can be amazing.

About cherries: I always thought I didn't like them. The maraschinos of childhood polluted my mind, I think. Having had some absolutely delicious and amazing fresh cherries from a friend recently, though, I later priced them at the store: $3.99/pound? I thought that might be a bit much. I hear that $1.99/pound is more right.

Sorry to talk price like this, but I've never bought cherries before.

or we will have frayed the term "terrorism" even more than has already been done.

Fuck it. The term is worse-than-useless as it is. Right now in the U.S. it means "violence by Muslims whose political views are unsatisfactory to neocons" and nothing else. If it comes to mean "crazy mass violence," then that is (at least potentially) a baby step in the right direction. Maybe we can start to think again about terrorism as something that we need to respond to with cops and not soldiers.

Things I like to put in the fridge but really don't need to: peanut butter, soy sauce, various types of vinegar. I blame my mother.

For some reason I feel as though soy sauce doesn't need to be refrigerated, but actual tamari probably should. Balsamic vinegar maybe also refrigerate (as I've had it go rancid on me before I find red wine vinegar would do so).

I miss my old food co-op which had tamari in bulk in its refrigerated section.

Parsi, what kind of cherries? The Wick entry on Rainiers says they were going for $1 each in Japan 10 years ago. It's nearly inconceivable to me that you friends in BC let you visit without serving you some Lapins from the Okanagan. What kind of friends are they, anyway?

In 2015, we will be as far from 1985 as the protagonist of Back to the Future was from his 1955 parents.

In 3063, we'll be as far from the mass acceptance of cannibalism as we are now from the Norman Conquest.

In the spirit of the disabled debauchee, let me recommend putting a slice of cheese on top of the wonderful rye, raisin and carraway bread from these guys. It is sweet, sour and juicy all at once. You can get it from the Sourced market in St Pancras and no doubt other places.

As some brave admiral, in former war
deprived of force, but pressed with courage still
Two rival fleets approaching from afar,
Crawls to the top of an adjacent hill
....
I'll saucily advise,
And, being good for nothing else, be wise.

Since the cheapreligionjeans spam went to an old Stanley post, I thought I should re-post it here.

Wonderful items from you, man. I've take note your stuff prior to and you are simply too fantastic. I really like what you've obtained here, certainly like what you're saying and the way in which through which you are saying it. You are making it enjoyable and you continue to take care of to stay it smart. I cant wait to read far more from you. That is actually a terrific website.
Stanley, simply too fantastic.

It's cheese and fruit, not jam, but let me just remind of you the best sandwich in the world.

116 made me laugh so loud that my kids demanded I explain what was funny. Which, it turns out, is not really possible with a 5 and 7 year old.

Ah. I thought that was a possibility, but the distance traveled seemed improbable. We initially had raspberry bushes in the way back of the yard, then several years later one cropped up at least, oh, 50 yards away and sort of around a corner and atop a 3 foot high stone wall, then another a couple of years later another 20 yards along. Those are some runners, seems like. I dunno.

Nope. I had a lot of freshly picked strawberries and raspberries every morning, though. Have you seen this site, CC? Maybe it's been around for a while, but I'd never noticed it. My friend is here.

I have no idea what kind of cherries I had the other day. I'll have to ask, given that I could barely stop gushing over them, which indicates that I should procure some if possible.

Date nut bread with cream cheese was a lunchbox staple for me.

Me too! Further proof that oudemia and I shared a childhood. My mother used to make the bread in little loaf pans, so we would have cute mini-sandwiches.

alameida was unable to resist forwarding this actual comment from an OT story in which the cops shoot a break-in victim. just in case anyone is worried that they are overdoing it with the "OPINIONATED."

PRAYERS TO ALL INVOLVED IN YET ANOTHER CAREER NIGHTMARE SITUATION! CITIZENS HAVE A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO KEEP AND BARE ARMS IN THE STATE OF OHIO AND THE UNITED STATES. THIS IS GOING TO MAKE SOME LAWYERS ALOT OF MONEY AND CAUSE MANY POLICY CHANGES I CAN BET. TO BAD THE OFFICERS WERE NOT EQUPPED WITH BODY CAMERAS!

123 -- Pic of Hornby from our place in the queue (left of the big doug). I don't get over to Hornby but every third year or so, and while we're heading out to the coast in a week or so, I doubt we'll make it this year either.
