I tried it with my jam at home and I guess it does make a tiny pop if you push on it.  I've always assumed it meant the loud vacuum seal being breached POP when you first open it.  I have learned something new about jam.  Is there any stunning peanut butter or miracle whip wisdom you guys can lay on me?

You can mix peanut butter with jam for a heavenly sandwich (assuming the jam isn't a filthy harlot)

Peanut butter (crunchy of course) and Nutella works pretty damn well too, on hot, thickly sliced granary toast.

Peanut butter, banana and honey sandwiches are awesome.

On weird sandwiches I know more than a few people who fondly remember sugar sandwiches as kids. That's just sugar and butter  in a sandwich. I've not tried it and maybe it's nice but the idea just seems swamp poop

I remember eating butter and sugar sammiches. Sometimes you could mix it up and add cinnamon. I saw it in my beloved Disney activity book - Donald made me do it!  why so serious?

Butter, sugar and cinnamon is basically french toast without being fried and without egg. Of course it tastes good.

I mean, it's like 2 of the 3 best things on the planet, and then cinnamon. Peanut Butter and banana is delicious, honey may or may not be overkill.

I don't get the cultural phenomenon that is peanut butter. Whats wrong with normal butter.

But peanut butter and normal butter are completely different things. It's like comparing homemade plum jam with a teaspoon of white granulated sugar. Not that there's anything wrong with either, as with peanut butter and butter, but they're just not the same.

Bread & butter = yum.
Bread & peanut butter = yum, but different.

My co-worker takes vacation days to cook his apple butter.  He has a large copper pot over an outdoor fire.  Once a year he sells pint and quart jars.  They are food of the gods.

Ashame you aren't in Texas. I'd drive a decent distance for fresh, quality apple butter.

Hi! I'm participating in this thread. I was driving in my car listening to the Sound of Young America interview with Chris Onstad and thinking how there should be a thread for Achewood.

So, uh, there is one and now I'm left out in the cold here.

The first strip of 2009 is good news, though. Looking forward to cuddlenacht.

In the manner of a nice little transition here back to talk of food and drink, in the Achewood Subscriber section, the coversheet of the latest 'man why you even got to do a thing' magazine includes a recipe from Teodor for a simple Limoncello recipe.

Having not known anything about Limoncello prior to this, I did my research online, and now I think that I need to try this.

Anyone else dabbled in the self-infused alcohols?

I made my own aqvavit once. It tastes exactly like "Viking firewater" implies it should. I've made my own vanilla vodka too, and I make my own bourbon vanilla extract for cooking now.

I searched and the word Viking did not appear once. I am disappointed. I want to tell a lady I am going to offer her Viking firewater.

I think we basically have this thread to ourselves, though.

You can still offer a lady Viking firewater. I can't drink it, but sometimes I use it (with broth) for braising porkchops, or in fondue in lieu of kirschwasser.

I will offer a lady Viking firewater. Hopefully it won't set off her innuendo alarm.

I have probably 4-5 signed, framed strips that I still need to hang up at various places in my house, along with the Great Outdoor Fight poster I need to get framed.

I still kick myself for not going to the book signing he had in LA, it was a 15 minute drive for me.

I'm trying to remember which ones I got signed. These, I think:

http://achewood.com/index.php?date=12012006
http://achewood.com/index.php?date=09022004

I may have gotten the Nice Pete describing what it is like to kill someone strip, as well. If you look at the alt-text for the strip prior to that one, it talks about how he does his murders in nothing but tube socks and a tanktop, and then he's only wearing tube socks and a tanktop in that one. So good.

My friend also got me this one for my birthday - http://achewood.com/index.php?date=01022007 - it is notable for the usage of the phrase 'cask-strength gay', which is pretty amazing.

I love all of the ones where Beef has depression.

We went to his signing in Portland, got TGOF autographed, got a photo of Onstad, etc. He complimented my camera. Good times.

I have purchased each of the books, with inscription, for sauced for Christmases and birthdays. Should move on to strips and art, I guess.

The boy is from Circumstances, after all.

I haven't picked up any of the books of the strips just yet. I went on a webcomics book shopping spree and picked up the PBF book, the Wondermark book, the Dinosaur Comics book, and TGOF - still no books, though. I think I'm waiting until I have the cash to do it right, because I want them all to be personalized.

I also own two Achewood hoodies - I have a green Dude and Catastrophe hoodie, and the Achewater hoodie.

The nice thing about Achewood fans is that all of them have a shirt or something, so they can be easily identified in a crowd (e.g., at a concert) and instantly bonded with.  awesome, for real

Exactly! At least from the handful of Achewood fans I've met, if they get and love the humor, they're generally good chaps to be around.

It's an interesting phenomenon, though. I would say moreso than wearing a game shirt or a movie shirt, if you specifically wear a shirt from a webcomic, you can kind of pin down an individual's sense of humor, which gives you a way to at least chat on the same level. At least for me, I have to be a large enough fan of a comic to justify buying a t-shirt from them.

I haven't been recognized in my Kate Beaton or Pictures for Sad Children shirts yet, though.

I get props for my 'reading: this shit is crazy' shirt. It's this mega ultra green color, which is in stark contrast to my super purple 'the internet: where awful people meet' shirt.

I just got my order today (delivery guy woke me up at 7:45am!) of some PFSC and Dinosaur Comics shirts and stuff. I was going to get a Kate Beaton one too but I'm sort of poor like. The reading is crazy shirt was so close to being purchased, but alas!

I'm wearing "It is difficult to be alive" right now, in fact!
This one is probably the most awesome shirt though:
