It has to be real lightly toasted tho, I like a little crunch but I like chewy too. You have to be quick to get everything spread on or it gets cold and yucky. To save time I mix the honey, not jam, and butter together. Its almost like whipped butter in consistency and spreads like it too, but tastes like honey. And agreed on the crunchy peanut butter, but has to be all natural. You should have to work for your food and mixing the oil into the natural peanut butter is a workout. I also like picking out leftovers out of my beard later in the evening, especially at family gatherings....the little ones are wide eyed...

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Toast, definitely toast. Peanut Butter gets all gooey and squishes out .
Gets in my beard so I can snack on it later.
And, it just has to be Super Chunky or Extra Crunch!!!

Depends on my mood. Toasted, untoasted, grilled, crunchy, smooth, whatever.

All good

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
You can’t have peanut butter.... someone around you may be allergic to it!!!

None of my vehicles are "dangerous heaps".

Just because i dont run out and fix every little thing right away does not make them unsafe.

Guess how many mechanical related accidents ive had?

0....zilch....nada.

So i must be doin something right.

All i try to point out is that some people freak out way to much over every little issue.
Rusty is going to jinx himself if he isn't careful...

I'd think about 99% of the time it's not the vehicle that causes the wreck. I know lots of it gets Blamed on the vehicle, but in case of that, refer to the first statement ;)
This is most especially true on wet, slick, and mostly icy roads. Won't nothin get you in a jamb any faster on an icy road than another driver. They're downright silly on dry sunny roads, but let it get slick and they get plumb crazy.

Far as peanut butter goes, I only buy the natural brand too, which wasn't always the case. As late as the mid 90s I'd look at the ingredients in it and it only had one, Peanuts, and maybe a little salt. Then they infused everything with corn syrup, and now to get the real stuff we have to pay a premium, and stir it up ourselves.

Right about that. As a retired cop who was a traffic homicide re constructionist, I investigated very few accidents caused by a vehicle or failure of a part. A few with blown out tires or rim that came apart, but in 9 years of doing that job, and several hundred investigations, maybe 4-5 were vehicle related.
And...
I eat the commercial brand stuff, but my wife likes the natural stuff.
Thing is, you gotta fridge the natural and by the time she takes it out, stirs it up and than waits for it to become spreadable....I'm done with mine.

I had that happen once too. Put new aluminum rims on my car and apparently didn't tighten the lug nuts tight enough. Went on a test ride and noticed a wobble and was hoping to get it home (was literally 100 feet from the driveway when I lost a wheel) and BANG, I'm skidding down the road as my tire is in the ditch hopping all over the place. This was on a 04 stratus coupe that already sat 6 inches off the ground and now without a front tire it was sitting about 2-3 inches off the ground. Ended up having to use 2 jacks to get it high enough to get the wheel back on. Pain in the ass over something so simple. Live and learn. Now wheels get WAY over tightened.... Ahh good times.... And don't mount chrome aluminum wheels with tons of corrosion like I did.

Floored... I thought mixing the butter and honey was a southern thing?

Make a peanut butter sandwich (creamy for me please)... dip it in and egg wash (like making French toast)… roll it in some crunched up corn flakes... cook it like French toast. You should probably make bacon too.

I guess I know what I'm having for breakfast on my next day off. That sounds pretty amazing.

I'm also partial to the natural peanut butter. Usually grind my own at the store.

For the finishing touch....macerate some frozen mixed berries and sugar to your taste. Spoon berry mixture onto your french toasted peanut butter sandwich.

Maple syrup is good too... but the berries are a play on a PB&J and super hard to not to enjoy.

My ex taught me about mixing butter and honey. I don't think she's ever been south of the Canadian border.
