    I like a dab of whipped cream on my strawberries too. Earl has it just about right (just kidding!)

    Now, if Opal used pouring cream Earl could measure much more accurately. Fresh cream is probably healthier too. :)

    I don’t know about Earl but my blood sugar just went way up, thinking about that pile of whipped cream.

    Apparently he prefers the pumpkin pie method of moderation.

    No harm done even if he can’t.

    At least serve proper whipped cream, no that aerosol rubbish.

    Opal sometimes the canned stuff just comes out like that and one has no control over it ;-)

    Ha ha, this is my better half! I think he’d just eat whipped cream by itself if the fruit wasn’t there.

    Earl must have been listening to some Demo before eating dessert – whip it good!

    Nope didn’t like whipped cream at all. My grandma would make pies( my fav was Boston Cream pie and banana cream pie, just without the topping too. I liked it without it and I put my Cool Whip on it instead. I did try the stuff from the can my Father in Law had and that wasn’t too bad but not as good as my Cool Whip.

    I would hate to see what Earl would call a lot of whipped cream.

    Reminds me of an old Cool Whip commercial from the late ’60s or early ’70s where the family is having Thanksgiving dinner, and the hostess is going over what kind of pie each person wants for dessert. “And no pie for Uncle Harry, just Cool Whip.”

    You betcha! Me, my oldest sister and my married daughter, had made supper (on separate occasions, of course) of homemade strawberry shortcake. That’s what Mom would make for supper when it was strawberry season. All our “meat and potatoes” husbands asked where supper was and we told them this was supper. To them that was dessert not supper. Oh, well, supper was delicious, anyway.

    There was something about the flavor of strawberries that we picked ourselves, to go on Mom’s homemade shortcake with real whipped cream, that made them sooo delicious!

    I think the satisfaction of having done the hard work gathering them, made them all the more enjoyable.

    I remember the time my older brother knelt at the side of the table where my dad filled his open mouth with whipped cream. We all laughed hysterically, but he almost choked on it.

    I always put extra “whupp” onto my berries because our cat will demand her share. (She gets about ½ of a teaspoon, on my finger).

    The best trick, though, is to get the grandkid to “tip your head back and open wide” … and then squirt in enough to fill their mouth. Everybody wins!

    Sigh. It’s like this: cakes exist for frosting; all other desserts exist for whipped cream. Got it?
