Halve 'em up, add a touch of sugar, put a huge pile of that on, and then out-of-the-can, but real, whipped cream. I'd eat at least two at a time."
NOW: "There's a place called Sesuit Café in the Cape, and they have the most delicious, huge lobster rolls and boats of fried clams. That and a Yanjing beer or a good Sauvignon Blanc."
