PB&J for me on whole wheat. I don't think that either mayo or mustard would work for me.

Yes!

A sandwich isn't a sandwich IMHO without mayo.....but then add mustard and it's really tasty!

Ranch dressing for me. Great on pizza, too.

And I wouldn't kick a Powermatic, Oneway, Stubby, DVR, Vega or several other lathes out of my shop, either. For now, I'll just hope my used Sears lathe keeps on keepin' on. It makes nice stuff, but I'll enjoy having a better one some day.

Maybe not but have you ever had mayo with peanut butter? its REALLY good!!:D

Mustard. On everything. Mayo is good for making Tunafish, and egg salad as long as it's cut with mustard.

Tomatos and mayo should have to be registered:eek: :D :rolleyes:

Now the real story.

I had nothing against mayo until I was about 12yrs old. My buddy, Pat "Goonie" Hovland, and myself. Along with our mom's were at a diner. There was a lady in the booth next to us eating some form a sandwich with mayo. A big glob of mayo spurted out the end of her sandwich. Goonie's comment on the issue was "ewww gross, elepahant zit juice". I haven't ate mayo alone on a sandwich in 35 years since that day.

Tomato's. Now that's another story.;)

It's hard to beat a 'mator sandwich. Two slices of white bread, both covered with Dukes mayo, three big slices of a home grown 'mator right out of the garden, salt and pepper, and a glass of milk. Now that's good eats.

If you add banannas and fry it in butter in the frying pan it's especially good! An Elvis special, mmmm mmmm.

Depends on the sandwich. Mustard on ham or brats, mayo on most else. Dukes mayo, of course. No real southerner would be caught eating any other kind of mayo. ;)

Either way, you don't have to worry too much about dust collection. :rolleyes:

Marmite. (and this bit is because apparently marmite is not a sufficiently long and descriptive answer to qualify as a response. It is of course. In fact Marmite is a very valid answer to many of lifes main questions. It seems a shame that when a perfect and self conatined answer can be produced in only seven letters, that the technical ramifications of making that perfect and self contained answer, using technology available in the early years of the twenty first century, mean that a meaningless and overly verbose rider has to be included, even if parenthetically, in order to match some arbitrary minimum length of response)

Err, since when is Kiwi exotic? :confused: I've been eating Kiwi's here in Canada for at least 15 years. I admit they weren't around in the early 80's, but are now pretty common.

I have a coworker here who is a kiwi, (ie: from NZ) and he eats the skin even. Just buffs them a bit on his sleeve and bites into it. I've tried it, and it's not that bad, but I think I'll stick with a knife and spoon.


But to address Don... Both! White or rye bread, some mayo, some smoked ham or pastrami, a thin slice of cheese and a few dabs of mustard. If the fridge cooperates, a slice of crisp lettuce is nice. But if not, you can even dab on a spoonfull of relish if the mood strikes.

Voila!

Mean Mister Mustard sleeps in the park
Shaves in the dark trying to save paper
Sleeps in a hole in the road
Saving up to buy some clothes
Keeps a ten-bob note up his nose
Such a mean old man
Such a mean old man

His sister Pam works in a shop
She never stops, she's a go-getter
Takes him out to look at the queen
Only place that he's ever been
Always shouts out something obscene
Such a dirty old man
Dirty old man

Ian, you're a nice fellow, but I need to remind you that we have outlawed Marmite on this side of the ocean. Gastly tasting stuff IMHO.

Mustard on my brats, ham & cheese and in the shop, but mayo on burgers and some other things.

Depends on the sandwitch:
Mustard for Turkey or chicken sandwitches

Mayo for those marvelous summer delights inch thick slices of Home made bread and inch thick tomato slices - yum

Then there are other things like lobster salad sandwitches that have may already in it.

Ian, you're a nice fellow, but I need to remind you that we have outlawed Marmite on this side of the ocean....

Now you see Cecil - that's what propaganda can do. Marmite is actually the only remaining item which is the subject of sanctions which were imposed following a little unpleasantness between our two great nations at the end of the eighteenth century. Our daily news is full of stories of illicit shipments being intercepted by revenue men in tricorn hats before they can reach your shores. If we would only lift the embargo you would all be flooded with the devine concoction and realise how much better your lives would be because of it. You see - that's what you get for being unfriendly:p :D :D

Here in the lab at work we had a Post-Doc from NZ for a year or two, and she tried introducing marmite to the lab. She enjoyed it on a toasted bagel.

Surprisingly enough, from Ian's perspective, she won no converts. :cool:

It must be one of those things that you need to be "raised on" in order to like. My parents were post-WWII immigrants from The Netherlands. For us it is salty black licorise. Try giving some of that to your friends and watch their faces pucker up.

ps: of course, I think coffee tastes like burnt ashes as well...

Reading Ian's posts makes me think of Marmite's cousin - Vegemite. Folks in Oz think of it the way Ian does. I seem to remember seeing it on the shelf right next to the peanut butter.

For some it would definitely be an ... ummm ... er ... "acquired taste" is a polite term. I found it to be enjoyable, although I do prefer other spreads more.

Having tried Vegemite I would say more of a son on the distaff side than a cousin. And peanut butter (naturally only crunchy peanut butter would be acceptable to any gentleman) and marmite is a great delicacy. All you have to do is admit that you were wrong and we will lift the embargo;) :D :D

I found it to be enjoyable, although I do prefer other spreads more.It doesn't seem to hold up all that well in low-humidity environments like we have out here.

What? Oh...sorry, I thought you were talking about using it as tub caulk.:D :cool:

Actually, Vegemite and (I'll assume) Marmite look, smell a bit like and definitely have a similar consistency to axle grease.

It figures that you would like it Andy. Rumor has it that Marmite is made from the remains in the beer vats--probably Gueniss--and allows them to sell what should have been thrown away. Maybe that's where Moxie came from too.

Why is it that on this forum the threads about food seem to be the most active?

Back in '99 I gave my wife a bottle of Vegamite in her Christmas Stocking as a joke, it's still in a kitchen cupboard unopened. It was after we had seen the Mr. Bean episode where he dipped twigs in it and served them to guests when he ran out of pretzels.

Hmm after all that time it's probably black, sticky and smells funny... should be perfectly OK still :D
And yes it's called 'yeast extract', made from cooked up yeast, and the best source of yeast is... the bottom of a brewing barrell :cool:

You guys just dont know what you are missing :D
