Today’s Lunch Craving

Fried clams. One of the luxuries of living close to Cape Cod is that deep fried heaven in bivalve form is only a short car ride away. And clam strips don’t count. People who go into a clam shack on the Cape and order clam strips over bellies should be handcuffed, blindfolded, and driven to a Long John Silver’s somewhere in the midwest.

The clam shacks that are a cut above the others will always throw a few onion rings on top and have homemade tartar sauce. If you’re really lucky, a fried scallop or two may find your way on the plate.
