    Now that’s worth a try – when I was a kid in Colorado one of my favorite sandwiches was peanut butter and mayo on plain old white bread and a Dutch friend has on occasion made a dish called sate – skeweres of pork in a peanut butter sauce

    shackman – It adds another angle to a cold buffet.

    WWW – My father would turn in his grave if I dished that up to him. He thought the only flavours fit to be added to potatoes were butter and salt.

    I never turn up my nose at anything I haven’t tried yet. Besides being a bit of an ominivore, I also find that some combinations you’d never guess would work together surprisingly do.

    Maybe that’s why I’m a bit past my ideal weight! 🙄

    Fos – You are a long way from being a fatty. Mind you I seem to have magic-ed a few extra inches recently. 🙁
