I want to say that I am putting jam on the bread, but 'put' is too boring of a word. What other word can I use? Example:

I meticulously ___ Nutella on my bread.

    You shouldn't be spreading Nutella on your bread if you're going to put jam on it. Not a good combination. Commented Apr 16, 2017 at 22:22

  • I have tried it—found it absolutely disgusting. Two rights sometimes make a very wrong. Let's agree to disagree. ;-) Commented Apr 16, 2017 at 22:24
  • @JanusBahsJacquet really? o_o

  • @JanusBahsJacquet: Don't forget "agreeably"! Agree to disagree agreeably. Oh, and don't forget the latinate phrase: Gustibus non est disputandum" (i.e., "In matters of taste, there can be no disputes" --literally, "about tastes, it should not be disputed/discussed").
