Yesterday it was Coffee Oreo. And while I had ordered an adult small, I still ended up with a pint of homemade ice cream shoved into paper cup. The kids both got kid-sized servings, but they weren’t considerable smaller than what I received.

While I am no longer interested in the clam bellies and the nastiness they contain, the strips have not lost their luster. Next time I think I’ll actually indulge in a lobster roll and coleslaw.
