Season of Gratitude and Giving

Good morning to all of our beloved friends and clients and it is usually about this time of year that some of us start to experience Holiday Stress.

Now I'm certainly not judging these fellow travelers nor would I be so presumptuous to assume that a simple "take it easy" will appease their anxiety. No in truth I'm suggesting that this energy can be used in positive ways as you enter the season of gratitude and giving. Now I know most of you who deal with these folks often tell them to focus on their blessings and try to appreciate what they have in order to cool that seasonal angst but I'm suggesting you use that energy to get things done around the house. See, the secret is not to cool those jets but to use that fuel.

Case in point, your loved one is showing signs of freaking out; they don't need a "talking to" but a task to take their mind off their worries. How about those 150 Christmas Cards you filled out, they need stamps and that stressed out person in your life needs a distraction so lovingly hand them that box of joy and kindly ask them to start licking. Or how about on Christmas Eve when you are staring down the barrel of 10 pounds of shrimp to be cleaned "What do you say mopey, how about channeling that bah humbug on some peeling and deveining" (Of course Metro will clean your shrimp free of charge but they don't have to know that). Or let's just say you don't have the time or patience to deal with these tortured souls and you just want them out of your hair for a couple of hours.

Well then, just go into the garage or basement and find that tangled ball of Christmas lights from 2003 you've been holding onto and let them untangle their knotted disposition. Oh and by all means, hug the living day lights out of them and when they let go of you, hold on to them for another minute, they might feel a tad uncomfortable but they will appreciate it. Of course you can always sooth any tensions by creating a delectable and healthy meal and today's recipes are just the ticket, featuring Lemon Rock Shrimp and Kale Soup & Pan Seared Margarita Swordfish Fajitas.

Please also remind them that their Fishmongers at Metro love them and should they decide to stop by, a free Oyster the half shell is waiting to slurp that stress away.
