If I read ONE MORE post on peanut butter, I WILL GAG.
This is a warning. Please end the thread on peanut butter sandwiches or I'll
post the detailed, step-by-step procedures of MY favorite peanut butter
1.) Peanut Butter and Tuna Fish on Toasted Rye
2.) Peanut Butter and Grape Jelly and Pepperoni and Pickle on Graham
3.) Peanut Butter and Banana on Wheat
4.) Peanut Butter and Chocolate Syrup on Corn Flakes
5.) Peanut Butter and Vanilla Ice-Cream
6.) Peanut Butter, Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and Strawberry Jam on Onion Bagel.
7.) Peanut Butter Chicken Casserole.
Note: Peanut Butter must be JIFF Creamy.
(And NO, I was not pregnant when I concocted these culinary delights.)
However, I think newbies to the list would benefit from topics more relevant
to technical writing.

Although an interesting thread, I was going to comment. BUT...

Since the primary focus of the subject is "peanut butter", I believe the
sub-topics of jam/jelly/etc. could be organized using the following Chapter
I) Creamy Peanut Butter
4) etc. (has anyone mentioned bananas?)
II) Crunchy Peanut Butter
NOTE: Consistent alignment of sub-topics enables rapid location of subject
This type of organization lets the writer add additional sub-ingredients as
needed. You know from experience the SMEs are going to add more ingredients
about 10 seconds after you "finish" the document.
Of course, I haven't address the matter of bread selection. My favorite is
Honey Wheat Berry! With that, I really don't need the "crunch" of crunchy
peanut butter. However, the texture and crunch differences make it an
interesting variation on a theme.
